Winning Beyond The Bad Eyes

Winning Beyond The Bad Eyes

A few days back we have been discussing about a little to more in-depth philolophical thought "Those who envy show themselves with a negative face". I have been recieving quite a number of email comments on the depth of the topic involved. I was particularly impressed by one particular reader who had expressed her personal experiences regarding bad eyes which cast an evil effect. We call this in Tamil has கண் திருஷ்டி. Inspite of the scientific ways that we can adopt as outlined in the then post, a few religious observations like this are also considered in reality. You would have seen even in temples after the God is taken out for procession and returns back to the temple, the priests make small colored rice bundles and throw it on all the sides to ward off any evil eye effects. For this matter, in Sri Vaishnavite temples, it is a custom that before the Lord goes on a procession, Sri Sudharshana is taken out first. It is believed that Sri Sudharshana (Sri Chakrathalwar) would clean up any negative forces on the procession route and make a best way for the Lord to undertake the procession.

I have some one another realtime illustration and touch yesterday which I would like to share with the readers.

Well! Yesterday I had a significant and important work to commit and complete. It was a significant assignment out of long time hardwork. The evil eyes, I guess, was really playing some Shakuni's Game. Inspite of the bus (51D) arriving prompty at the Rajakilpakkam bus stand and coming really fast, no sooner did it enter the Velacherry 100 Ft Road, it broke down. I just thought waiting at the island place of 100 feet road inhabited by only a few buses is not going to help. I just chose to walk off till Gurunanak College so that buses from Velachery can be taken. It was about a half-mile walk.  I don't think these paltry distances should bother us much right. We have already been experienced dealing big pie bad eyes and have ousted them from our ways successfully. This alongwith our Sabarimala pilgrimages should be lending us a greatest helping hands in undertaking long voyages without any demur of any sort.  Coming back to the discussion, even though it took about ten more minutes, I could manage off the show without any much heartburns of any kind or cadre. I am sure, till I was to reach, my Lord should have represented me in even the mundane tasks.  With evil eyes always in pursuit of thier goals blocking others and the Lord's power to slay them off, I would like to invite the reader to view the song of Sri Raghavendra, where even the river go away and give way to His devotee while He was reaching His Brindavanam. I would like to thank Rekha for hosting the song as a great service to His devotees.

Let us bring some humor touch to this. Both the parent and this post discuss about evil eyes and scientific/religious ways of confronting and solving the same. Now the basic symptom that the prankster, as we diagnose, would show his profuse sweating, inability to focus eye-to-eye. I think, we need to recommend these pranksters to Government of Tamil Nadu, since the previous Government successfully implemented the Rain Water Harvesting and this government can assemble all those pranksters and make them sweat into a huge vessel and these sweat can be diverted into the sea for Sea Water Harvesting. At least, though not practical, we can see that these evil pranksters can be made useful for mankind in some ways. Uh?

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…
