Recalling School Days ...

Recalling School Days ...

As I have described in my travel log, about my Saturday Trip to two schools near Thiruthani, thanks to Asha Chennai chapter, it has been a great start of a humble educational service, that this weblog and my website has been emphazing for some time. For you to recall about our previous discussions on our educational ventures, check out the previous posts here:

  1. Necessity of Basic Education
  2. Initiative of a School Network Webpage
  3. Noble Educational Service

The school functions really make us very peaceful and rejuvenate our mind with more energy to think positively and with more amount of creativity.

As the function started, there was the recitation of Tamil Thay Vazhthu, which is a widely followed custom in Tamil Nadu and slowly, I jumped back to my class tenth Tamil class, the start of which is punctuated by the rhythmic chanting of 'Neerarum Kadalutha' by Kavimani Desiga Vinayagam Pillai. I could'nt see myself in Tiruthani function and I was virtually in 1992-93 at 4, Tharachand Nagar, Virugambakkam, Chennai -- 600 092. I could fondly recall our Tamil teacher's guidance in getting the song high pitched or out of rhythm and a quite a few suggestions...

For the benefit of other readers, as you visit this weblog, you would hear playing of Tamil Thay Vazhthu in a quick MP3 buffer.

It is an excellent lyrics by Kavimani in praise of Lordess of Tamil. Here goes the lyrics of the song:

Neeraarum Kadaludutha Nilamanthaik Kezhilozhugum
Seeraarum Vadhanamenath Thigazh Bharathak Kandamithil
Thekkanamum Adhirpirandha Draavida Nal Thirunaadum
Thakkasiru Pirainudhalum Tharitthanarum Thilakamume
Atthilaka Vaasanaipol Anaithulagum Inbamura
Etthisayum Pugazh Manakka Irundha Perum Thamizhanange,

Unseerilamai Thiram Viyandhu Seyal Marandhu Vazhthudhume,

There was some technical error. It has been fixed. The song would play now.

Thank you for bring this to my attention.

Neerarung kadaluduththa was written by ManonmaNeeyem Pe. Sundaram Pillai and not by Kavimani. said…
I came across this blog when I google searched for Kavimani Desiga Vinayagam pillai.

Thamizh Thaai Vaazhththu was written by Manonmaneeyam The. Po. MEEnakshi Sundaram Pillai and not Kavimani Desiga Vinayagam Pillai.

Hi Deepak!


1) It should read Nilamadanthaik Kezhilozhugum and not Nilamanthaik Kezhilozhugum.

2) Adhirsirandha Draavida Nal Thirunaadum and not Adhirpirandha Draavida Nal Thirunaadum.

Otherwise the transliteration looks good. Looks like there's not too many available on the net. So, it would be great if you could make yours perfect.

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…
