Better deal for devotees needed

SABARIMALA: Definite conclusions on the maladies plaguing Lord Ayyappa and the devotees were made on the penultimate day of the four-day Ashtamangala Devaprasnam being held at the Sannidhanam here.

A more humane and friendly approach towards the devotees is a must on the part of crowd-controllers, mainly the police. The embarrassment or agony of the devotees in getting a good darshan gets immediately transferred to the Lord.

Ayyappa wants immediate restoration of his nearly 25-sq km Poonkavanam (forest area) comprising 18 hills, to its original status. The springs, rivers and mountains are his haunt.

At any cost, the Travancore Devaswom Board should make it its own and do there whatever is comfortable to the Lord and His devotees in tune with temple traditions. If this is not done, about three-fourths of the area will go into the hands of undesirable people in 10 years.

The power of the Lord is progressively ebbing away due to impure and unbecoming practices of all concerned, especially the priests. Now they are concerned only about their own welfare and none is bothered about the Lord. Unless these people unconditionally beg pardon before the Lord, He is going to take some drastic steps against them.

If He is not totally satisfied with their regretful atonements, the erred people will inescapably face terrible consequences including serious accidents, deaths, diseases etc. Even before the pariharas (corrective measures) are completed, mishaps may happen.

The Lord has become too familiar with the smell of liquor in his sanctum sanctorum. He has taken very serious note of some other unholy activities also like smoking and drug usage and even sexual activities near the temple.

Those involved in these will surely be sacked from service, or from life itself in the immediate future. The Lord is totally dissatisfied with the treatment He had got, and is getting from the Pandalam Palace people.

Misuse of the money collected in His name is deeply paining him. If palace members don’t fall at his feet and beg pardon as a team, the whole family will disintegrate and will face a very pitiable future.

Malikappurathamma who still smarts under the unrequited love she had towards the Lord wants a very simple temple where she can pray and dream, hoping against hope that a day will dawn when Ayyappa will marry her. She doesn’t like any change in her environment.

It is shocking that immoral activities take place in her temple precincts. The flyover leading to her temple may collapse resulting in human casualties. Many mishaps like this will happen before the end of the coming Makaravilakku season. All should be extremely cautious and pray to the Lord to avert all these.

Annadanam for all devotees should be implemented immediately. Even if one devotee leaves this temple hungry, and in pain, the Lord cannot stand that and He will reject the food served to Him.

The fact that a beautiful young woman had entered the sanctum sanctorum and touched the idol has been conclusively confirmed. But this cannot be publicised because that will hurt the innocent woman. Those behind this are in for indescribable sufferings. Like those who indulged in drinking and immoral a
ctivities.
