Experience at Sabarimala pilgrim center

Tomorrow, 17th Nov 2010 is the first day of malayalam month VRISCHIKAM. The sanctum sanctorum of Sabarimala temple is opened today and the new Melsanthi is assigned the holy duties for this season. The rituals commence all over the South India tomorrow.

The next 45 days and even more, in few cases, ie till Jan 15, 2011,the atmosphere in entire State and even neighbouring States is agog with Saranam Vili and holy dips in the early morning. The gents keep away from non vegetarian foods, hot drinks and maintain distance with their spouces and murmur Swami name more frequently. This is something UNIQUE and there is no comparison elsewhere.

Every year, the crowd at Sabarimala is increasing manifold and it becomes difficult for the managing committees to control the crowd. Pilgrims coming from far off places in Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are forced to wait for 6 to 8 hours during the peak days to have the Swami Darsan.

I am visiting this Pilgrim Centre since 1988 and I have had my numerous experiences in my life due to the Swami darsan. I was leading a bachelor life in Bangalore as my wife – a central tovt employee – was transferred to Kerala.
I joined a team from Bangalore to have the Swami Darsan in 1988 and just at the front of sanctum sanctorum, before the diety, I prayed from the core of my heart and sought Swami’s blessings for either a suitable placement in Kerala for me or for a transfer in my employment to its Cochin office. This was in December 88. By Jan 89, papers moved by some unknown force in Management and swapping the positions with another chap, a vacancy cropped in Cochin. I did face lot of difficulties in managing to grab the opportunity. I had to learn Commerce as the vacancy was of Accounts Officer whereas I was an Administrative Officer in Bangalore. Candle lights were lit at nights to learn as I had to compete with Post Graduates in Commerce who were also aspirants. With swamy’s blessings – ONLY DUE TO HIM – I could join my family in 89.. Since then, it has been my practice every year to observe the rituals and reach before the Swami with my two sons. Still I am a devotee.

Lot of experiences of this nature would be thrown open through these columns in days to come.

  • Swamiye saranam ayyapa..

    I did the holy trip to Sabarimala thrice between 1997-2000 and god willing would like to do it again.
    I wanted to know the details of the longer trek to Sabarimala starting from Erumely. When does this route open & how long is the trek? Can only ayyapa’s take this trek or normal devotees ( who haven’t taken the 41 days penance take it )

    Can one do this trek with their footwear on ? pardon my ignorance but this details will help me plan my trip accordingly.

    God bless..

    • swamy saranam, ayyappa saranam
      that root is called as “pedda paadam” root.
      that root would be opened on Jan 1st week.
      with out taking 41 days deeksha also we can take that root i think.
      desired things are devotion and belief on lord ayyappa.
      Swamy saranam. ayyappa saranam.

  • Very Very happy to know Swamy experiences.
    Swamy ye saranam ayyappa.
    Hari hara suthane saranam ayyappa.
    Jyothi swarupa ne saranam ayyappa.

  • We must start penance little earlier to complete 41 days little bit earlier and have darsan in first week or second week of Pilgrimage season. It is to help devotees comming from other states. October 26 is the best day as it is deepali. On December 6th 41 days will be completed. remember december 6th may not be a right day for darsan as we are anticipating metal detector examination on that day as it is the Babri Masjid day. So start penance a little earlier. I have started penance on 1st November

  • Am very happy to know ur experience Swamy, i too have a very great experience with the blessings of lord ayyappa. When i was studying M.Phil i prayed god to bless my sister and because of ayyappa blessings,nw my sister is happy vth a little child. After that to have my prayers for the help i took the deeksha, it was a great experience in my life i used to live holy life through out that mandala deeksha. After that one year i gave a break because of some financial probs. Later i prayed god to bless UGC NET JRF, one of my friends got qualified in the exam after writing for 6th time i thnk. Every one said it was a tough nut to crack. But i prayed ayyappa that if i get qualify in UGC NET JRF i will take deeksha again. Because of the lords blessings only i got qualified in UGC NET JRF for the very first time. I got my result in september, then i decided to take deeksha and do pedha padham to visit my ayyappa. Now am in deeksha, really my god is there with me. I pray my god to bles all the student communitiy for good education and better livelihood with good jobs.
