Calendar of Events for the Thiruvabharanam Procession
On the night of 27th Dhanu (Jan 11th), in the presence of the Pandalam Palace Management Committee members, in the presence of the current Valia Thampuran (currently Revathi Thirunal Ramavarmaraja) who will hand over the `Thiruvabharanams' to Devaswom Board.
Early in the morning of the 28th day of Dhanu (around 12th January), three days prior to 'Makarasankranthi', these jewels are brought from Pandalam Palace in a ceremonial procession to the Valiya Koikal Sastha Temple at Pandalam. The ornaments are adorned on the idol at Valiya Koyikal before the Sanctum Sanctorum of that temple is opened on Dhanu 28th (Jan 12th). Till 12 noon, the doors are kept open for the devotees to have a darshan. Huge crowds congregate at Valiya Koyikal temple during this period.
At noon, the doors of the Sanctum Sanctorum are closed, and in the presence of the Valia Thampuran, special poojas are conducted. At that time only the members of the royal family, Mel Santhi and those designated to carry the `Thriuvabharanams' to Sannidhanam are permitted to be present in the temple. After poojas and Deeparadhana, the containers are closed, covered with silk and garlands of marigolds placed on them. A sword which would have been sanctified, by the Mel Santhi, during the earlier poojas is also handed over to Valia Thampuran. While receiving the sword, Valia Thampuran offers a traditional monetary tribute to the Mel Santhi.
On 28th Dhanu (Jan 12th) at 1300 hrs, the doors of the temple are opened. To the accompaniment of religious music, chanting of Saranams, vocal `kurava vili' and led by lit camphor containers, the procession party in a state of `thullal' commences the procession carrying the `Thiruvabharanams'. The 12 member procession party is led by Guruswamy Kochuthandil Bhaskara Pillai. The procession party takes blessings and Vibhuti from the Valia Thampuran and steps forward to carry the `Thiruvabharanams' in a ceremonial procession to Sannidhanam. The Valia Thampuran and other family members follow the procession in palanquins. They arrive at Kaipuzha Palace to seek the blessings of Valia Thampurati (the Senior Queen of the family). After that the procession proceeds along the route Pandalam - Kulanada - Ullannoor - Aranmula - Pambadi Mannu and reaches Ayiroor temple for overnight halt.
On the second day, ie 29th Dhanu (13th Jan) they travel along Puthiyakavu - Ayikkakunnu - Vadaserikara - Madamon - Perinad - Arackal Padikal and reaches `Laha' for another overnight halt.
On 30th Dhanu/Makaram 1st (14th Jan) the procession travels along Nilakkal - Kurungayam - Valianavattom - Neelimala - Sabaripeedom and reaches Saramkuthi Aal by around 1730 hrs Indian Standard Time. A rousing reception is given to the party and the procession is escorted forward to Sannidhanam.
The magnificent occasion is further made unforgettable and surcharged with spiritual loftiness when the devotees looking up witness the hovering of the "krishnapparunthu" (kite) far above in the sky as if the Heavens themselves keep a watch on the goings on below and is considered to be a sure mark of Divine intervention.
Devotees believe that Lord Vishnu, riding on his vehicle Garuda, accompanies the "thiruvabharanam" from Pandalam to Sabarimala. It is indeed amazing that when the procession reaches Sabarimala, the kite is again sighted majestically hovering high up in the sky, which reinforces their belief. The people who witness all these amazing spectacles feel transported to a realm far above the mundane, material plane.
The ornaments are adorned on the deity at Sannidhanam behind closed doors and then the doors are thrown open for Deeparadhana and darshan. Makara Jyothi is seen at Ponnambalamedu and the divine star is also sighted. The crowd, in front of the temple, at this time is huge by any standard.

The senior most Thampuran never visits Sabarimala. The Younger Thampuran is the one accompanying the procession. He too leaves the main procession at Cheriyanavattom/Valiyanvattom as it is not considered auspicious to have a darshan of the Lord during `Mandala Kalam'. Thampuran moves onto Pampa and stays there till Makaram 3rd (Jan 17th). Thampuran reaches Saramkuthi Aal on 3rd of Makaram. He is received with `Poorna Kumbham' and rides to Sannidhanam atop an elephant. At Sannidhanam, the Mel Santhi reverently washes Thampuran's feet and offers him a coconut. After breaking the coconut, he enters the temple and has a darshan of the Lord. After darshan , he proceeds to take rest at the rest room located at Malikapuram temple. He continues to stay at Malikapuram Temple till the `Guruthi' there is over.
Meanwhile on 18th Jan (Makaram 4th) `Kalababhishekam' is conducted on behalf of the Thampuran at Sannidhanam. This is mainly to cool the idol which would have been receiving a never ending series of abhishekams. After that no abhishekams of any kind are performed. After the `Guruthi' at Malikapuram temple on 19th January, that temple closes and Thampuran arrives at the main temple to stay there for the night. No pilgrims are permitted into the temple after that till the Thampuran leaves with `Thiruvabharanams'. When Thampuran visits the temple to have private darshan on no one other than the Mel Santhi is permitted to be present. .
On the last day of the Makara Vilakku celebrations i.e. Makaram 5th morning, no pooja, except a Ganapati Homam is conducted at the temple. It is a poignant moment that day when the Thampuran has a private darshan of Ayyappa who was looked after by Thampuran's ancestors. No one is permitted inside the temple premises including the Thantris and Santhis. After a few minutes of solitary darshan and prayer, the Mel Santhi re-appears and asks for his permission to remove the Thiruvabharanams and close the temple. The key of the Sanctum Sanctorum is handed over to Thampuran. Thampuran receives the keys and offers a monetary tribute (pana kizhi) to the Mel Santhi and exhorts him to perform all the due religious rituals punctiliously till the end of his tenure. Thampuran then hands over the keys to the Devaswom Manager. Thereafter the return journey of the party, along with the Thiruvabharanam, starts for Pandalam

A major stampede was averted with the collective effort by the Rapid Action Force, National Disaster Response Force, and the Kerala Police when the police barricade was broken in the rush of pilgrims entering the Lower Tirumuttom from the Valiya Nadappanthal around 9.40 pm on Monday.

Few pilgrims were injured in the rush; however a major stampede tragedy was averted with the effective intervention of the well-trained crowd management forces attached to the Central Reserve Police Force.

The rush of pilgrims who reached the Sannidhanam from the northern side of the Lower Tirumuttom crossing the Bailey Bridge had turned the situation out of gear.

With hardly 36 hours left for the Mandalapuja, the sacred grove of Sabarimala has been witnessing an unprecedented rush, forcing the police to block the flow of pilgrims periodically to the holy hillock from Pampa periodically from Sunday night.

The throng of pilgrims turned so heavy that the space between the U-Turn on the Saramkuthi path and the Valiyanadappanthal has been witnessing a near-stampede from Monday afternoon.

Rapid Action Force (RAF) and the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) have been controlling the crowd along this highly risky and difficult stretch to avert any untoward situation.

The vehicular traffic on the main trunk road leading to Pampa too has gone up and the police had to block the Pampa-bound vehicles at definite intervals at Plappally and Nilackal. The parking lots at the main base camp at Nilackal have turned full.



U can Use Coconut oil daily.If known on lady callegues .............. I try to avoid the eating in the afternoon and evening I reach home bath ,prayer and eat.I try to avoid talking with them.

Swami Saranam.kalyan 



Do's:1. Do the bath in early morning with normal water. There is a big controversy that on using soap or not. When the rules framed by elders long long ago, there was no soap. So, they didn’t think of future facility. At that time every one was used some home made powders. They didn’t discuss about that powders also. That means the real meaning of this rule is- We must do bath cleanly, which helps us to be healthy and happy in a day.2. Do the bath in evening with normal water. This is also a good healthy guideline to get rid of tiredness of day work. So we can go to bed with good sleep, which is more important to a body.3. Do the pooja in the morning (before sun rise) and evening (after sunset). Poojas or praying god are meant for getting concentration. So, doing pooja in the morning means, we are putting a coma to home life and to getting ready to do the day work. And doing pooja in the evening means, we are putting a coma to day work and to getting ready to do the home life.
These above are not rules; they are the best methods to be happy in our regular life. So, we have to understand that GOD does not get anything from us by our bath and our cleanliness or pooja. It is 100% meant for our health.
Then what is God expecting from human? The answer is Live Happily, and Let Live Others Happily. Whereas every one (except few human beings) trying to do the first half of rule and not at all bothering about second half of the rule. We have to think about this. If one is following the above rule, then he does not need any Deeksha. He is 100% perfect human. God likes this type of people.
4. Have one time meals. This is also very good health point. This is also benefit to us, not to God.
5. Do the Anna Danam to others. This is what God expecting from human being, that is doing favour to others.
6. Sleep on ground without pillow and bed. Every one knows that this is helpful to our perfect blood circulation.
7. Talk less. This will help in getting good results of our job. That means we should not waste our time by simply chatting. It is also good for our efficiency.
8. Eat vegetarian food. This is also good for health.
9. The cook must also do the head bath and then he should prepare food for Swamies. Again it relates to cleanliness, which will stop the unhealthiness.
10. Help others. This is the way to be a good citizen. We have to know the Happiness behind the Helping. This is what we have to learn by doing Deeksha.
11. Make them others happy. This is another important thing we have to learn by Deeksha.
Can’t we do these 10 and 11 without Deeksha? Yes, we can do.
12. Do the Brahmacharya. This the rule framed by elders to get concentration on our training or Deeksha.
13. Maintain simple life. Use minimum things to run the life.

Don’ts:1. Don’t smoke.2. Don’t drink.3. Don’t eat non-vegetarian food.4. Do not use foot wear. This is good for health. The pressure on the foot bottom will keep the all organs of body freshly. This is also helps to us, not to God. Another benefit to us is, when we trekking on Sabarimala hills, it is always better to walk with bare foot, instead of foot wear, which will be slippery.5. Don’t make others unhappy.6. Don’t cheat others.7. Don’t say lies. At the same time we should not make others unhappy by telling truth. Try to avoid that topic, if you are supposed to say A LIE to keep the others happy.8. Don’t do half mandal Deeksha, quarter mandal Deeksha and instant Deeksha. Mandalam means 41 days. In olden days doctors used to give the medicines for a period of Mandalam for chronic diseases. Because it is their experience that the minimum time required by a body to get cured. Similarly to get cured by our mental diseases we need Mandalam days. We can observe the difference of a person before starting Deeksha and end of the Deeksha, with lot of change in behavior and way of thinking, if he is following a perfect Guruswamy.
9. Don’t do hi-tech(LUXURY) Deeksha.
10. Don’t do violence.
11. Don’t proud yourself. Because, the greatness you are feeling is not the great ness of you, it is given to you by the god. So, faithful to the god.
12. Don’t argue with others on any matter. I have seen the swamies arguing on the Rules of Ayyappa Mala, which will break the real goal of Deeksha. Just say the YOU are correct. Then the other person will feel happy. Think that you got the opportunity to make the others happy.
Finally most of the rules are meant for our health, and few are meant for becoming a good citizen.
Generally people follow the above rules in that Deeksha period only, after that they will continue their life with routine bad habits. Then doing the Deeksha is waste. Hope every one will try to reach the ultimate goal of Deeksha. So do the Ayyapp Deeksha properly by understanding the real meanings of rules and regulations and keep continuing the good habits after Deeksha also, which are deserved to our life.

A near-stampede situation has been prevailing in the Sabarimala Sannidhanam since the early hours of Tuesday, as the crowd turned uncontrollable.

Many pilgrims, especially women and children, fainted. Personnel of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and the Rapid Action Force (RAF) have been managing the crowd since Monday night, as the police were overwhelmed.

It took 14-16 hours for the pilgrims to reach the Sannidhanam from Pampa. A group of pilgrims from Kannur told The Hindu that they started climbing Neelimala from Pampa 15 minutes past midnight and reached the Valiyanadappanthal only around 4 p.m.

Overcrowding outside the barricade at the entrance of the Valiyanadappanthal created chaos half-an-hour past midnight. A major stampede was averted, thanks to the intervention of the RAF and NDRF personnel, a volunteer of Ayyappa Seva Sanghom said.

The police’s failure to divert the pilgrims returning from Sabarimala through a Bailey Bridge also contributed to the overcrowding along the Forest Office-Valiyanadappanthal stretch. The virtual queue system went haywire.

The drinking water supply to pilgrims waiting for long in the iron barricades was affected because of poor arrangements. Many pilgrims were found gasping for breath in the congestion caused by the bottleneck at the entry point of the queue leading to the Holy-18 steps before the giant peepal tree at the Lower Tirumuttom.

Pilgrims who climb the broad steps leading to the Lower Tirumuttom from the Valiyanadapanthal have to enter the narrow barricade sandwiched between the peepal tree and the fire place (Aazhi) after much push and pull.

In the previous years, during the rush days of the pilgrim season, the Travancore Devaswom Board used to extend the darshan time by two hours, opening the temple earlier, at 3 a.m., and closing it 30 minutes late (11.30 p.m.). However, the temple administration is yet to extend the darshan time this year.

The police have been blocking pilgrims at Pampa, Sabaripeedhom and Marakkoottom at regular intervals since Monday evening to regulate the flow to the Sannidhanam.
