The Aadi Month Starts with Gifts from Lordess Andal

The Aadi Month Starts with Gifts from Lordess Andal

Yesterday was the beginning of the Aadi (ஆடி) month. And there were two interesting and happy news to share too. I recieved a message from Community-Credit team about a week back that the grand prizes that I had won in March and June has been shipped. I have been closely tracking on the United States Postal Service website with very much eagerness and enthusiasm. We call it in Tamil as "வழி மேல் விழி வைத்து". Just on Aadi eve (one day before the month start), I got a message from my post office that a packet has come and I needed to pay a difference duty amount to claim the same.

Again, the same day, it was interestingly, MVP certificate was also being held back at DHL, due to address discrepancies. Interestingly both the issues were sorted out and on Aadi first day both the gifts were delivered at home.

It was just the blessing of the Lordess Andal, to which the month of Aadi is dedicated to for having showered Her choicest showers of blessings and the gifts came in along with her blessings. Here is a small token of prayer to Lordess Andal as a thanks plus a prayer to Her in Her Aadi month:

திருவாடிப்பூரத்து செகத்துதித்தால் வாழியே
திருப்பாவை முப்பதும் செப்பினாள் வாழியே
பெரியாழ்வார் பெற்றெடுத்த பெண்பிள்ளை வாழியே
பெரும்பூதூர் மாமுனிக்கு பின்னானாள் வாழியே
ஒரு நூற்று நாற்பத்துமூன்றுரைத்தால் வாழியே
உயர் அரங்கற்கே கண்ணி யுகந்தளித்தாள் வாழியே
மருவாரும் திருமல்லிவள நாடி வாழியே
வண்புதுவை நகர் கோதை மலர்ப்பதங்கள் வாழியே

அன்ன வயற்புதுவையாண்டாள் அரங்கற்குப்
பன்னு திருப்பாவைப் பல் பதியம் - இன்னிசையால்
பாடிக் கொடுத்தாள் நற்பாமாலை பூமாலை
சூடிக் கொடுத்தாளைச் சொல்லு.

சூடிக் கொடுத்த சுடர்க் கொடியே! தொல் பாவை
பாடியருள வல்ல பல்வளையாய்! - நாடி நீ
வேங்கடவற் கென்னை விதியென்ற விம்மாற்றம்
நாம் கடவா வண்ணமே நல்கு.

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…
