Streamlining the paths that youth take

International Youth Fellowship -- Streamlining the paths that youth take

Sometime previous Monday, while about to climb the stairs of Tambaram Railway Station, a guy gave me a pamphlet. I was just thinking that this would be one more ICICI Bank Personal Loans. So before dropping it down, I glimpsed through a few lines and it was something different -- something that was intended to address the maladies that the society is currently facing. The current society and the youth to be more precise are haunted by plethora of evils of all kinds and creeds on the pretext of fashion. It is really disgusting that tattered jeans with a minimum of twenty pockets is becoming a fashion. One other guy was telling jeans is best since you can use it without washing even for four days. Damn! Would'nt that stink like anything?

Alongside this is the antisocials who seduce youths towards girls and drugs, creating a major havoc for the society. The net effect is that youth who are currently in colleges have thier performance steeply declined. Even at workplace, they only feel like enjoying thier time at the expense of the organization. Now coming to the mainstream discussion, this pamplet was discussion about a korean based society. These people organize global events for youth to address and rejuvenate them from all these social maladies. The downside is that it incurs an international travel, which for most of us would be prohibitive in terms of budget.

Tip: I have been recieving comments from readers worldwide to remove the link to International Youth Fellowship on the grounds that this society has tieups with fanatic protestant movements in various parts of the world. I would strongly feel that my weblog would not abet any such practices and hence removing the link. I would offer my sincere thanks to K. P. Iyer for bringing this to my attention. Thank you, so much.

Nevermind, we have a lot of institutes like Vedanta Institute which offers courses and practices right in our places. Check out them over here:

  1. Vedanta Institute
  2. Chinmaya Mission
And, our president, Dr. A. P.J. Abdul Kalam has given an elegant seven point oath for the Youth to follow as part of his national addressing in the Independence day. Check it out here.

Korea has aggresive and fanatic Protestant Christian movements operating in various countries including India purely for converting the gullible into their faith . THis IYF is one such organisation. I would request you to remove the link from your posts

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…
