Virtual Pooja to Sri Ayyappa

Virtual Pooja to Sri Ayyappa

Today evening it had been a very holy evening. Whilst casually browsing through some websites, I came across Sri Ayyappa Temple, Rohini, New Delhi website, which can be accessed from here. The opening page of the website has a virtual pooja to Sri Ayyappa.

Also, I just got to know Silverlight Streaming of Videos service from Microsoft. I had the Namaskara Slokam of Sri Ayyappa downloaded and in my personal collection. I have downloaded this from CoolGoose, which supports songs in public domain only and with good rating. You can trust CoolGoose for public domain songs for the simple reasons like:

  • Stay away from piracy
  • Small size
  • Though the website puts a lot of advertising, the download speed is good (Even in India and in slow broadbands)

Today evening, I sat down and did a small assignment like below:

  1. Prepared a SlideShow of 'Loka Veeram Maha Vishnum' in I then exported it to Microsoft Powerpoint from where I can save the slides as compressed GIFs. The entire typing took me some thirty minutes.
  2. Open Windows Movie Workshop to embed 'Loka Veeram Chanting' and the slides. The most important part was synchronization of the slide that is shown and the sloka which is being chanted.  My laptop didn't have a mouse which was again a great disappointment. I called my friend 'Varaprasad' and he was explaining me how to use the touchpad to easily drag and drop. So, there is one more thing I learnt today.
  3. After careful syncrhonization, I exported the movie and then published to Silverlight Video. Check it out here:

  4. Full Screen URL (may open in your Windows Media Player)


  1. Note: As far as I know the slokam is hand-typed by me reading from various books. The audio is a free download from CoolGoose public domain song and true to my conscience, there has not been any copyright infringment. If at all, you have an issue, please send me a note to deepak.vasudevan (at), which would facilitate me to investigate into the matter. This would also help me to visit the website also to inform the uploader and clarify the same.
  2. This requires Silverlight Plugin to be installed. Check out Microsoft Silverlight page for system requirements and to download the silverlight plugin.

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…
