Exploiting Merciness ...

Exploiting Merciness ...

I have this observation for a few days at least amongst different sectors of people in Chennai and just thought I would provide a synopsis on the same and share with others to get to know about others' observations too.

I frankly feel that a honest kindness, no-looking-back-or-undemanding help or no-strings-attached charity had been kind of extinct species in Chennai. I have two incidents here:

  1. Whilst casually discussing about the challenges faced by the downtrodden people in our society because of reservations and bad administration of the government, one prankster in the group immediately was trying to take advantage of the situation, to everyone's disgust and was trying to preach about Christianity. I really wonder, why Christians in Chennai are so much behind conversion to their religion. Given even a little chance, these guys barge into it and try to make the most out of the situation. I really wonder, what is happening to the Anti-Conversion laws in the state?
  2. The other day in my apartment they called an animal welfare volunteer. After much ado, the volunteer brought the ambulance. But he was reluctant even to search for the puppy which had ran some where in the proximity. But at the end of session, his colleague seemed to have asked one of our apartment members "This guy is a good guy. Can you tip him something?". I think illegal gratification for even fulfilling one's normal duties is becoming a regular scene in our country. Can something be done to correct this?

Don't you know? Karunanidhi's next grandson is going to be named as Kristuvanidhi, following his previous one Arivunidhi. That is why, to exchange thanks, Greenways road was named as DGS Dhinakaran Road. http://www.deccanchronicle.com/chennai/hmk-protest-road-name-237
@Anonymous,

Thanks for dropping by and sharing your views. At the same time, I used to wonder about the religion that Karunanidhi himself belongs to. Some people say, he used to pray to Samayapuram for goodness of his vision. But he has a strong soft corner for Christians. Was he 'converted' anytime?

After a little prolonged research, I was able to get one detail regarding why he was called 'Mu. Karunanidhi' and how does 'Mu' expand to? Many people didn't know that. It is 'Muthuvel Karunanidhi'.

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…
