Trading Peace for Penny

Trading Peace for Penny

It is a shame on the current trend of population that wherever you turn there is a trade off for peace for penny and petty benefits. Yes. I am really talking about the brutal blasts in Mumbai and Sri Nagar yesterday by the terrorists.

I remember, in my school days, my school correspondent used to shout at the top of his voice, inspite of being a bypass heart surgery patient,when somebody nonchalantly drops the chalk pieces and without properly disposing it in the dustbin just walk over them, thereby littering the entire area. He used to say that we do not have any rights to destroy anything, we have'nt created. Perhaps this is also being strongly emphasized in "The Bhagavad Gita" too. Relating to the chalk piece incidents, since we do not have even the ability to manufacture one bit of chalk piece, do we, on any grounds have the rights to destroy them? Why on earth, the shameless governments still bearing away with these terrorists? They are just an eyesores to the entire nation; rather the entire universe.

It just clearly depicts the greed of some handful of persons who instrument these terrorists. The greed may be for money, power or potential. I think, the nation and the world should raise in supreme solemn solidarity against these terror-striking mobs and bureocratic red tapes, which alone can bring in eternal peace and prosperity to the world. At this point of time, I am also reminded of the song from a Tamil film "Muthu", which has these lyrics:

Mannin meedhu manidhanukku asai Manithan meedhu Mannuku asai.
Man than kadasiyil jeykkirathu. Idhai manamthaan unara Marukkirathu.

At the moment, we can just pray the Lord Almighty for saving the world from the cruel hands of such creatures. Let us spend a couple of minutes in silence to pay tributes to the unfortunate departed souls and to pray the Lord Almighty to allow those souls to rest in peace.


Hey Deepak...u have given a beautiful practical example....
I guess u should really even consider these things told in ur childhood...
Well nice blog...You have conveyed the message in an appealing way...
hi Deepak, well said! The lyrics of Muthu movie are so beautiful and profound and so very apt to the context, too. It is true, as Rajanikanth sings in the song, "If you have a little money, you are the master of it, but if you have money till your neck, then the money becomes your master." Excellent Lyrics! And keep it up! Your blog is very thought-provoking but I wonder if it can move the shameless, callous, and impervious politicians in India!

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…
