Best Book on Sabari Yatra - Pilgrimage to Sabari - K. R. Vaidyanathan

The book is good for all devotees and pilgrims of Lord Ayyappa. It makes the reader feel as if himself is on a visit to Mount Sabari. The book has answered all questions that rise in the minds of readers-whether they are new ones, skeptics, laymen or devotees. The legend of the origin of the holy pilgrimage, the adventurous trek, the significance of the journey are informative

More info

 More details: ‘Swamiye, saranam Ayyappa’ shout thousands of devotees who make this pilgrimage to Sabari after 41 days of penance and austerity. They carry a two compartment bag called Irumudi as they climb the Sabarimala hills. And only then can they ascend the 18 steps to the sanctum. No women between puberty and menopause are allowed. The book tells all the tales associated with Lord Ayyappa and the pilgrimage to Sabarimala. How Ayyappa was born from the union of Vishnu(as Mohini) and Shiva, why all Hindu pilgrimages lead one to beautiful surroundings generally on top of hills like Sabari, Badrinath, Kedarnath, Tirupati etc. is told in this book. The flow of devotees has increased almost ten fold in the last decade and this has made the author add one more chapter to the book about the latest information, the facilities offered and the changes that have taken place in recent times. Today the pilgrims come from outside India as well and there is no discrimination between communities or castes.

The rates are not negotiable here. .compared to other colleges the tution fees are moderate.

When we went, we were asked to remove footwear (secret microphone fear) and were asked to wait in a big hall (of an erstwhile bungalow). The hall was airy and we were about to doze; one gentleman with Sandal pottu called us in. Before entering we were asked to handover the cell phones etc. The admission officer's assistant (my friend named him Alla kai)  was wary of these gadgets as the might be leaked to media.

At the end we got the numbers. Since the trust (and other colleges) took so much for not leaking .. I am not revealing the figures.

We then went to Arulmigu Venkata Subramanya Swamy Tirukovil / Temple - Valasarawakkam Chennai and prayed for all students and proceeded towards Koyambedu Perumal Temple - Koyambedu Sita Rama Temple before heading to RMK Engg College

Arulmigu Manakkula Vinayagar Tirukovil Pondicherry/Puduchery

How to go to Arulmigu Manakula Vinayagar /Ganesh Temple Pondichery

The Manakula Vinayagar Temple is one of the famous ancient temple is in Puducherry, a Union Territory situated in the southern part of Indian sub-continent. The temple is 400 meters West of Bay of Bengal Sea, 165 Km South of Chennai (Capital of Tamil Nadu State) Lord GANESHA originally named as Bhuvaneshar Ganapathy became Manakula Vinayagar.

In Tamil 'Manal' means sand and 'Kulam' means pond near the sea, earlierly which was full of sand around pond. So the people called the god as Manal Kulathu Vinayagar [means God near the pond of sand]. Later it is named as MANAKULA VINAYAGAR.

Legend says that Jesuits and missionaries tried to demolish Manakula Vinayagar, but they could not demolish the temple. Everytime the idol was thrown into sea, it was washed ashored. During 1700 French even prohibited performing poojas and festivals particularly on Fridays in the temple. All the Hindus who were worshipping Lord Vinayaga objected and migrated to Moratandi English Territory. Still Lord Ganesha came back to bless Puduchery citizens

Temple Speciality: While we have not heard of a night shrine for Vinayaka in any temple, there is one in the Manakula Vinayakar temple. He stays here with his consorts. The idol taken to this shrine, called Palliarai, will have the feet part alone. Vinayaka on the Well: The stage (peetam) set for the God is on a well which many may not know. This may be a well or even a tank. A six inch radius pit runs on the left side of the peetam, the depth of which could not be measured
