1 Begging for food: How Renuka Aradhya’s story began

It all began in the little village of Gopsandra, Bengaluru India. Renuka Aradhya then a little boy was the son of a humble and poor temple priest at the Myutalamma Devi temple. His Father would preside over the rituals of the local village in the village temple. As a local priest, life was hard and the family survived on the meager donations of its patrons. There was never enough to feed the family which consisted of the parents, and Renuka’s siblings, an older brother and a younger sister.

In order to survive, Renuka’s father would go begging in the villages of the surrounding areas where people would give him grain. He would then sell the grain in the local market. After his priestly duties were over for the day, the old man would work as hired help doing household chores. On several instances, Renuka accompanied his Father with the begging bowl.
