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.

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…

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.
