A 'Jump-And-Get-Hit' at Tambaram

A 'Jump-And-Get-Hit' at Tambaram

It had been a morning of stresses, pressures, pleasures and discoveries today morning. I had some issues with the Booty Bank (ICICI), which I had to solve it first. As usual, dealing with those folks took some time and energy making a bit exhausted. For some reason, banking with these guys is getting more time-consuming, resource-intensive and a waste of graceful spirit, as is visible from our "Booty - Part II' (derived from a co-consumer experience at Consumer_Voice_India)

After a bit of hassles and getting the recoverered amount deposited to Indian Overseas Bank, Tambaram through the Anywhere Banking scheme, I had to start back to work only at about 1130. While there was victory all over, there seemed to some misfortune to smile over there a bit. I caught a bus G70 but when I saw M70 just rolling out, I thought, I would catch it and darted from this one to that one. There was one good intangible banana snake to lay a trap and hit against the bus while moving and some circus shows. I managed to escape from major hits with light bruises and the shopkeeper nearby, who was a close friend of mine, immedidately came running to help me out from the slip due to the banana skin.

I had to pass a message to my colleagues that I would be dropping late to work and had to return home through Tambaram Sanitorium shortcut. Even though, the bruises were paining, as I walked through Sanitorium Corporation Bank, I entered the bank and greeted 'Happy New Year' since most of them are close friends. I have'nt gone to the branch for a long time and I used this as an opportunity.

Even though it is an accident, I inferred the following advantages from it and see it was actually a simple weapon to brush off all other impending evils.

  1. With the help of my Lord, Swamiye Saranam Ayyappa, it was a minor bruise instead of a big accident. It might be evil eyes to have laid traps but the Lord saved by diluting it, quite similar to Parthasarathy making Karna's arrow to hit only Arjuna's crown by pressing hard the chariot into the earth. There is a Tamil Proverb to this effect:

    தலைக்கு வந்தது தலைப்பாகையோடு போனது போல

  2. The pending things like greeting my old friends at Corporation Bank, who would otherwise think that I did'nt have the courtesy to greet them 'Happy New Year' was also meted out besides the fact that they would be happy to get greeted with 'Happy New Year', which in fact inducing happiness to me.

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…
