Oru Nimisham. Ameer Mahalukku Vazhi Solla Mudiyuma?

Oru Nimisham. Ameer Mahalukku Vazhi Solla Mudiyuma?

In Hindu mythology, there are some spritiual observations like the following. Some people say they are superstitious but equally some people believe that a percentage of them is truth. I think, rather than beating around the bush, I would give you some examples which would illustrate this narration. We would two tamil proverbs for our analysis and study.

When we start on a journey or a mission,

  1. A cat running across the street, is considered ill-omen.
  2. If someone (traveller or cotraveller) or one who bids adieu or a stranger sneezes, it is considered ill-omen.
  3. If some one interrupts you ('excuse me', 'yes kiss me', 'one moment') it is considered ill-omen.

This analysis is purely on a scientific basis and it is ongoing. If you have a view, please feel free to share the same with us.

Why do we say that when someone interrupts us it is considered ill-omen?

  1. The interruption is regarded as a speed-breaker.
  2. The focus on the work taken by the doer is interrupted due to the interruption. Remember that in the story of Mahabharata, Arjuna could precisely see only the dove's eye and not even the head.
  3. Since in olden days it was kingdoms and kings and there were feudal wars between the different territories. Hence the interrupter was also considered as a spy or part of an espionage system. But I think these type of spying activities are also not completely away even now.

Later on, we would discuss more Tamil proverbs and practices too.

By the way, why is the caption like that? If you have watched Visu's film 'Sakala Kala Sambandhi', there would be one character who always interferes with Visu's son-in-law (in film) and his daughter (in film) when they start out with this question. The film director too would give a very nice music in the background to provide emphasis to the situation.

Reader: If you have a Tamil Proverb to study and analyse, let me know. Share them as comments.

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…
