What a beautiful and auspicious Ayudha Pooja at Iraivan.
Growing up in India I have experienced many Ayudha poojas including the royal one in Mysore. But, the Iraivan event is just devine,unmatched. John Muir said ” Man can create beautiful things but, cannot match/surpass the beauty of what nature creates”. Well mother nature,our Iraivan temple comes close to you,to be cared by you for ever. Om shanti.
Om Namah Shivaya.
The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. "Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe." When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.
