61st Anniversary of Hiroshima Nuclear Impact

61st Anniversary of Hiroshima Nuclear Impact

It was this day (August 6) in 1945 that Hiroshima had to confront the total devastation from United States Airforce dropped the LittleBoy (the first ever nuclear atom bomb) on the Japanese City of Hiroshima. While Japanese military could understand the air attacks of United States as part of World War and could alert the residents not to venture out, least did they forecast that the weapon that is about to be dropped on thier cities is first of its creed and kind and is going to paralyse the city. Three days later, FatMan encountered Nagasaki, the second Japanese city, forcing Japan to surrender to United States, bringing to the close of second World War.


[Nuclear Weapons Used at Japan during World War II]


It is clear that the use of nuclear weapon really in brought in to the end of World War II but the effects on the innocent public and masses were profound even today. The effects of nuclear radiation are still reverberating across the Japanese cities. That is why, the world countries are trying hard and fast to control the use of nuclear warfare. This comes close to the heels as two Indian countries have also seemed to violate nuclear agreements that are prevailing internationally. Check out this news source for details.

Nuclear technology is really an excellent avenue but it is sad that some countries and low profile creatures are trying to misuse it for thier personal gains. But there are several constructive avenues where it can profitably used. Think of having a nuclear power plant and it can light up the entire area catering to powersupply, irrigation etc, compared to thermal or wind or hydel counterparts, which are weaker in nature. I admit that nuclear power stations have a costly infrastructural setup but our big brothers should try concenterating on making a constructive use of it for the global welfare instead of thinking it on the destructive perspectives.

Let us hope that in future, everybody in power understands the real constructive use of this powerful sword and forget about its destructive type. Let us pray the Almighty for the excellent double-edged sword and would pray Him to give us control that we use it only for constructive activities.

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…
