An Ever-Moving Film -- Payanangal Mudivathillai

A Moving Film -- Payanangal Mudivathillai

As a followup of my other post over an observation in Tambaram Railway Station today,  after I got a Villupuram - Chennai bus to Guindy, I started watching the DVD stereo movie that was being screened in it. The film was "Payanangal Mudivathillai", starring Mohan and Poornima.

The film is really excellent and showcases the true love of Mohan to Poornima in that he did'nt want her or her father (Poornam Vishwanathan) to know about his terminal illness (leukamia/blood cancer at the final stage) and his counting days. With this intent, he was planning to create a gap from Poornima. However, Poornima and her father intrepreted him badly as if he had changed his mentality after becoming rich. They were depressed because he become rich from a pauper stage only because of Poornima and her fathers opportunity to him to give a lot of singing opportunities to him. The opening file "Raaga Deepam ..." is really touching. It reflects his acute mental depression that Nature goes against him by showering heavy rains when his first concert has to take place in the open air auditorium.

Coming back to the main discussion, Poornima and her father would realise the real cause of change of Mohan's mind only after Rajesh (the doctor who attends Mohan) tells about his sickness. Rajesh beleives that Mohan does not know  but Mohan has eavesdropped the report while Rajesh was discussing in his clinic.

The story reaches climax with the suicide of Poornima and Mohan in that their journey through music continues even after thier worldly life. The movie is filled with good amount of songs tuned by Illayaraja and true love that ensures that the loved party should not even be mentally disturbed. Try to watch the movie if possible.

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…
