Go Back, Tension!

Go Back, Tension!

I was reading an old article of Indian Independance when in 1928 there was a huge movement against the 'Simon Commission' called 'Go Back Simon'. Something interesting struck my mind

I think starting this Pongal we should nurture a similar thought 'Go Back Tension'. It is better to give back the tension to the originators itself than we shouldering it without any need. Stress and tension mostly eat away the productivity both in personal and professional cadres.

Some people try to feed these vectors to us because of their own patented idiotic idiosyncrasies. Rather we succumbing to it, if we can give them back that should make use feel lighter so that there is more room for productive thoughts.

In less than forty-two hours, we celebrate Bhogi. Bhogi is a unique festival in India wherein the old things are destroyed and the house is painted and decorated with new things. We should take a cue from this festival in that we destroy the evil thoughts from our mind and nurture noble thoughts only. Besides this, if there are factors contributing to the reality of succumbing us (or at least abetting that act), I wouldn't lessen the severity of the rule that we should firewall ourselves from such factors whatsoever.

We wish you 'Happy and Prosperous Pongal' to one and all. Let Bhogi destroy all evil from our physical and mental circles thus paving way to prosperity of wealth and happiness to bloom and fill our wallets and heart!

Fourth paragraph should start with

instead of

Thanks for pointing out. The (inadvertant) typo has been corrected out.

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…

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.
