"Once I decide, I would never back up"

"Once I decide, I would never back up"

Sometime back, I wrote a review on film Pokkiri over here. This weekend, being free, I was just trying to watch this film that some one had uploaded in Google YouTube. The interesting quote that Vijay keeps telling frequently is "Once I decide, I would never back up from the decision" In little. In a little colloqial Tamil slang, his quote would be: (ஒரு தடவை முடிவு பண்ணிட்டென்னா, என் பேச்ச நானே கேக்க மாட்டேன்) I would say, on a positive sense, this has very good meaning. It means avoiding wavering mind and focusing on the goal with greater attention.

The other interesting quote I liked was when he would meet the don from Dubai. When the don offers him liquors, he would politely excuse himself on the first offer. But when the don tells him not to be scared and pressurizes him for the drinks, he gives back a scar to the don by replying "I don't take up (drink in this case) on any one's compulsion. If I feel like, I initiate the task myself". You can check out this movie clip here.

All along the film, Vijay portrays as a rogue but he is actually a senior police who is hiding as a rogue to bring the big criminals to limelight.

I just thought I would share these two thoughts in an optimistic sense that the wavering mind is discouraged and also let us not keep succumbing to other's goals only. Unless and otherwise, the path is noble and our goal is achieved in the correct path, we should not take up that even if the opponent has illicit powers of any kind.

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…
