Where Woman is Goddess – Nari Puja in Kerala

यत्र नार्यस्तु पूज्यन्ते रमन्ते तत्र देवता:।
यत्रैतास्तु न पूज्यन्ते सर्वास्तत्राफला: क्रिया:।

Yatra naryastu pujyante ramante tatra Devata,
yatraitaastu na pujyante sarvaastatrafalaah kriyaah

Where Women are honoured, divinity blossoms there, and where ever women are dishonoured, all action no matter how noble it may be, remains unfruitful.

In addition to the special place that women have in Hindu society, a tradition of this nature is worthy of study.

Allapuzha: Environmental activist Vandana Shiva participated in the Nari Pooja held in Chakkulath Kaav, a unique event held every year in this temple. She had, in fact, visited the temple as a special guest, but after the Pooja she said, “I have never seen such a ceremony anywhere and it has really touched my heart.”

This is a ceremony woman is considered Goddess, seated on a special ‘peetam’, her feet are washed, flowers offered and ‘arati’, performed, and then she is garlanded  by the Chief Priest.  Every year, a special person is chosen by the Trust for Naari Pooja, and it has been first time they chose an environmental activist.

Others who had earlier participated in Naari Pooja include singer Chithra, actress Manju Warrier, Latha wife of Rajanikanth, Parvathi wife of actor Jayaram.

Semitic religions do not have the vastness of Hinduism – KK Muhammed

The renowned scholar and researcher of historical and archaeological,K K Muhammed said,”Hindu extremism is just an allegation without a merit. Semitic religions do not have the vastness of Hinduism. Hindu extremism is a term coined to inflate individual instances and added that it was high time Semitic religions stopped their extreme and radical views. There is a planned stand and effort by some to ridicule Hinduism scandalizing it under the label of extremism in order to build a cultural defense against their own religions.

He added that even the Godhra carnage and Akhlaq carnage are the consequence of situation-based reaction and not organized ones, and noted the continuity of this country as secular itself is due to Hindus being a majority.

Ayodhya Welcomes Prabhu Sri Ram

Welcoming Prabhu Sri Ram to Ayodhya with nearly 1.7 lakh diyas (earthen lamps) at Ram ki Paudi, marked the grand celebrations of Deepavali this year (Vikram Samvat 2074), while a helicopter decorated as “Pushpak Viman” carried Prabhu Ram, Mata Sita and Lakshman Bhayya who were symbolically represented by artists, descended on the Ram Katha Park near Sarayu river in Ayodhya, at the birth place of Sri Ram.

The grand event of this magnitude has happened nearly after “490 years” to the delight of all Bharatiyas filling the spiritual fervor and happiness, reminding us of the nostalgic era of Bharatiya Itihas – Ramayana.

It was in the year 1527 AD, that “Sri Rama Mandir” in Ayodhya was destroyed and demolished by Baburthe barbarous invader. Most celebrations since then were subdued in Ayodhya. Even after Bharat attained independence in 1947, nothing of this magnitude could ever have been imagined. Let alone celebrations, the very birth place of Prabhu Ram was itself challenged and his very existence questioned! The need for a grand Mandir at Ayodhya is still a distant dream, which is being continuously debated and challenged in courts.

The then CM of UP, Mulayam Singh Yadav inorder to checkmate the Mandir movement had ordered indiscriminate firing at Karsevaks and Hindu pilgrims at Ayodhya, only to appease certain sections of the society with his vote-bank politics. The firing at Karsevaks took place on October 30, 1990, when the Ram Mandir movement, spearheaded by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), was at its peak.

This year’s grand Deepavali celebrations led by Honorable Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, has brought back the glory to Ayodhya in memory of the day when Prabhu Sri Ram along with Seetha mata and Lakshman Bhayya, had returned to Ayodhya as a Victorious King.

Also, these grand celebrations acquire a spiritual and the political significance, as this is the same Sarayu ghat, where Karsevaks were fired upon by police on the orders of the then CM of UP, Mulayam Singh.

By lighting around 2 lakh Diyas, Hon.CM Yogi Adityanath has paid respects to our beloved “Karsevaks” on the banks of river “Sarayu”. These grand celebrations with offering of “Maha aArati” signified the welcoming of Prabhu Sri Ram have once again rekindled hope in Crores of Rama Bhakts, who can reassert and feel proud of being a Hindu. The awakened Hindu has sensed that our festivals and the celebrations are the ones that have kept Hindutva alive, and hence will no longer tolerate any more onslaughts against Hindu ethos.

That is why, DESPITE judicial overreach by the ‘milords’ of Supreme Court to curtail Deepavali celebrations on ‘experimental’ basis, the entire Bharat has gloriously burst the Deepavali crackers, and more this time!

May Prabhu Sri Ram continue to inspire us towards Rama Rajya, a Dharmic way of life.
Jai Sriram. Shubh Deepavali. सियावर रामचंद्र की जय, शुभ दीपावलि.
