Handshake -- How much disastrous can it be?

Handshake -- How much disastrous can it be?

Trends of westernization (on the masks of globalization) can be disastrous in more ways than one. Some of the customs that we adopt are just increasing Tamas/Rajas more.

Background Info: During one of the direct in-person 'war' in my previous organization I had an unique opportunity to blast a middle manager in my defunct previous organization.

Interestingly the way I blew him up was so very harsh and if I describe it verbatim here, Google Blogger would consider this as a 'ToS violation' whereas the then CEO (Srinivas Thirunagari) who has radical thoughts completely was in consensus to my view. He was infact mediator absorbing my allegations and filing everything possible under the  offender. In fact he was under a 'suspension' for a few weeks too pending investigation and his colleague was fired. That was a gesture of victory to the truth. There are two ways to standby to protect the Dharma. Either take the Gandhian Ahimsa way or Netaji's way. During that time I adopted the latter. The objective was noble whereas the path was harsh and hard.

Well! Why is this story and how does it befit handshake? I was reading through this article on handshakes and spiritual perspectives. And hence recalled. The unethical middle manager had a lot of negative habits including flirting and human trafficking. He had a few unscrupulous law-breaker cops to support his malicious ways in connivance. In a way that is patented unique to me I just asked him in the open forum 'Are you going to crash my organization's name and fame by showing a handshake in the public and penis-shake in the background?'

Just thought I would share this recall. Regret if this had been a harsh tone. But I strongly believe that elixirs were (are) never sweet. Offenders need to be whiplashed without mercy of any kind. Yesterday I was talking to a colleague from the same organization regarding the above article. We were recalling about this incident and hence shared out the same here too.

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.
