Sri Rama delivering Devi Ahalya (Gautama Ashrama)

Sri Rama delivering Ahalya from curseMeditation: I meditate on Sri Rama visiting the Gautama Ashrama (erstwhile hermitage of sage Gautama) in the outskirts of Mithila and delivering Devi Ahalya from her curse.

Pilgrimage: Gautama-Ahalya Ashrama is identified with Ahalya Asthan and Brahmapur in the Darbhanga district of Bihar.
