A Solace from Skunky Politics

A Solace from Skunky Politics

It had been a while I came from Chennai to Irving on a business assignment. The period spanning from April to July had been witnessing for me to witness a few low-profile people spearheading with dirty politics of this sort. Perhaps, I have also explained it over here. The environment at Irving, Texas has been supporting me from more than one way in this:

  1. Keep myself away from hoodlums who constantly try to pull others down.
  2. Ensure that the mindset is pristine clear and crystal pure so that it is focussed only on productive tasks towards the welfare of the world.

I would be having a return to India sometime the first week of November and I am sure that the political gamut would have expanded to greet me in a more hostile cold war atmosphere. At the same time, my current atmosphere has geared me with an immunity gear to ignore all sorts of those unwarranted unruly brickbats which are of no use to any one. The other day, I was watching the film (Sri Raghavendra) where the (female) associates of the Nawab of Adoni used to giggle with sinister objective when Nawab wanted to insult Sri Raghavendra by offering meat on the pretext of offerings. Sri Raghavendra converted those into fragrant flowers. Nawab and all his associates hung their head in deep shame and repented for their folly. I think the Lord made me to watch the film only to emphasize that these political tycoons would be taken care of Him and I should just ignore them and focus on my ethical duties and responsibilities.

I just thought of sharing this my experience with others with the intention that we should ignore low-profile people's politically biased talks and actions. Every second is precious. We should try concenterating in our tasks and service to Lord.

The song that comes in Sri Raghavendra explains this very beautifully. When Sri Raghavendra is assuming the Jeeva Samadhi, he appreciates the greatness of the flute music of the Lord, His graceful Lotus Feet, the peacock-feather on His head and His humble incarnation in the Ayar family as Lord Krishna. Nowadays, I keep listening to that song often. I got it from a public domain in when I was searching for it. After the viewing the video, I was searching for the song and the first line of the song also says 'Searching for the Lord ...'. I just thought I would share the song with others so that even listening to it would enable us to get the blessings of Sri Raghavendra:

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…
