Secular Exploitation of Temples

For the past one week, the hereditary Thiruvananthapuram Sri Ananthapadmanabha Swamy temple is being ransacked by a team of administration officials under the pretext of unearthing concealed secret treasures and as a part of 'stock-taking process'.

What may be the reason behind this 'diplomatic pilferage' of our Hindu temples by the so-called secularists?
After all they have been looting the temples from time immemorial and using it to satisfy their own bestial instincts claiming to spend on secularist purposes.

Perhaps just like our Indian Banks organize the so-called deposit mobilisation drives swiss banks should have announced something and hence is a mad rush amongst the politicians to fill up their private coffers. However, the so-called people's representatives seemed to have forgotten one perspective of the reality that in this process they are also packing their coffins with enough sins to be greeted by Lord Yama ('the Lord of Death') with a red carpet welcome according to the principles of 'Garuda Purana' in order to glorify and garland them with the following due respects:
  1. Andhakupam [Kiss* of the Animals]
  2. Sukaramukham [Caressed* and Sung with Lullaby*]
  3. Taptamurthi [A Date appointment with Agni]*
  4. Vaitarani [A holy dip in the 'river of fragrance'*]
[* These words are used according to the Idakkaradakkal in Tamil. For the exact equivalents of the same please refer our earlier post  ]

सर्व धर्मान परित्यज्य माम एकं शरणम व्रज
अहम् त्वां सर्व पापेभ्यो मोक्ष इश्यामी माम सुच.

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…
