Flash Monsoon Showers Today

Flash Monsoon Showers Today

Today morning, Chennai again started to recieve Flash Showers. The Met Department has reported this as an effect of a small low pressure trough in Bay of Bengal, which is relatively weak as of now.

However, for casual users for us, today also being a holiday on account of Ramzan, it would be a real fun and frolic to watch the showers. 

Rains are always most welcome in any part of the world. No wonder all poets have praised it on all times. Just a fond recollection:

  1. Varappuyara Neer Uyarum,
    Neer Uyara Nel Uyarum,
    Nel Uyara Kudi Uyarum,
    Kudi Uyara Kon Uyarvaan

                                                              Avvaiyar
  2. A Tamil Rhyme in the Primary School which praises rain in a very easy words for the tiny tots. A couple of lines like

    'Tavalai kooda Padumae; Tanneerila Adumae'
    'Teruvellam Vellamae; Tinnaiyorum Sellumae'

    Meaning: Toads and Frogs celebrate rain and dance happily in the waters. All streets and roads are flooded and the water is gushing to the main river through the small lanes.
  3. I could also remember a kind of lyrics in, I think, En Swasa Katre which was released during the period, we were in the 7th semester of our college.  I could'nt remember the exact song but would go like 'Avoid black umbrella to rain since it resembled like protesting it'. :)

In short, poets from old days to now, all treat Rain as a most welcome guest. Letz join hands with them to welcome it. It is the Showers of Blessings from the Lord.

By the way, if some reader could get the full lyrics of the Primary School Rhyme?

I think, we can try and request to TNTBS (Tamil Nadu Text Book Society) to check out the old syllabus book and get the lyrics too.

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…
