Ashtamangala Devaprasnam reveals that Lord is unhappy

Ashtamangala Devaprasnam reveals that Lord is unhappy

The world's most famous pigrimage shrine and the most small and cute Lord Ayyappa seems to be terribly upset, intimidated and furious as diagnosed from even the first day of the Ashtamangala Devaprasnam towards the proceedings in His Devaswom. It is an yearly practice by the Dewaswom of Travancore to hold a Devaprasnam to find out how best is Lord satisfied by the devotional activites of the temple and as well the devotees and priests. The prasnam began on 11 AM on saturday and the astrological committe comprised of twenty astrologers from different parts of Kerala and led by Parappanangadi Unnikrishna Panicker.

The very first day of Prasnam seems to reveal some serious issues with the ongoings in Sabarimala. All purity and sanctity seems to have vanished long ago. The full bunch of folks at Sabarimala (comprising of priests, traders) and the Government of Kerala seemed to concenterate on making money and fleecing the pilgrims in whatever ways they can. The Lord shows His extraordinary magnanimity in bearing all these and providing His blessings to devotees, who come with total devotion. The erring guys seems to have taken the enormous mercy of the Lord as His weakness and are dancing haywire. But if He starts back retaliating and giving repercussions, the world can not bear that. This was the diagnosis on the first day of the Ashtamangala Devaprasnam.

The Devaprashnam is supposed to be held for four more days and they would be discussing more problems in granular and minute details.
