"The God's Mills Grinds Slow But Sure ..."

"The God's Mills Grinds Slow But Sure ..."

The Friday attack of the undue stress and other environmental parameters on me set waves of introspection from my internal self on various of my past deeds and I just thought of sharing the same which would be helpful for others too in correcting similar follies that many people succumb to.

  1. There is a tamil proverb which says "பனை மரத்துக்கு கீழே இருந்து பால் குடித்தாலும் பாப்பவர்கள் கண்ணுக்கு கள்ளாகதான் தெரியும்" which means "Even if we only drink water at the shade of palm tree, the onlookers would only view with a suspicion whether we are brewing toddy (arrack) from the palm product and consuming it.

    Similar to this proverb, two weeks back I have been staying late around with a few who have the habit of taking liquor for the weekend celebrations. Though I just restricted myself to Coke or a peg of beer, it just added up to the offences that the Lord's account book for me maintains and which I think has manifested as the 9/19 attack on me. This is Lord's lesson to me that I need to mend my ways. Again, this also coincides with the moral that Sindhu Bhairavi film carries. The two weekend incidents carries the Avarohanam for which the Lord made me to run through the agony this weekend to ward off the clouds scattering my focus on Him towards mundane attractions. Hopefully, the days ahead would be Aarohanam without any negatives as Sindhu Bhairavi concluding song says too. I have recorded a quick snap on Snapvine regarding my learning curve here:.
  2. There has been many occasions where we just waste food on many occasions. Now, every bit of food and its value is made visible by the Lord.

Simply put, 9/19 was not a disaster for me. It was a lab where the Lord wanted me to introspect into myself, correct my derails and tune myself to the service of His Lotus feet.

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…
