Is Sabarimala for  the devotees or for dirty women like Rehana Fathima Pyarijaan Sulaiman and journo trekkers, atheists etc? [1]

, Sabarimala -the Five judges

The split judgment of Sabarimala and the haste politics of Communists leading to complications: The Supreme Court has announced that women of all ages could enter Sabarimala Iyyappan Temple in its judgment delivered on September 28, 2018. It has been a split judgment, as one of the five judges differed with the others[1]. Evidently, the Supreme Court or the four judges have not gone into the details of the temple, its tradition and connected rituals. Also, they have not considered the other provisions of the Constitution, where, various religious sects and denominations could maintain their own temples, belief system etc., without affecting others. That Sabarimala temple and devotees have been maintaining their position for hundreds of years has been proven by its existence and continuing traditions. As this has been the condition, the scene created, definitely by few, has been condemnable, as Sabarimala is not a place of picnic, activism or politics.Therefore, the few women, that too, non-Hindus, journalists and TV crew to go there and create problem, affecting the devotees, who have been going there with the vow, proves the pre-planned attack on the Sabarimala devotees, under the guise of law. Evidently, the Kerala government, now headed by the Communists have stated exploiting it as an opportunity to disturb and wound the sentiments of the devotees, by applying the police force, as evident from the happenings.

, Sabarimala -Ayyappa Saranam

Sabarimala movement has given space for all: Sabarimala movement, in the sense, that it gives equality to all without any discrimination, particularly for men, has been grown phenomenally, attracting many. Of late, rich people, actors and others started going there. Generally, poor people, labourers, workers, auto drivers and others used to go there, as they used to start their nonbu / penance during Kartigai month. Thus, it is very much similar to Varkari movement that drew lakhs of devotees spontaneously[2]. During their vow period, they do not take non-veg food, drink, smoke etc., and thus, they follow “brahmacharya” as a “kannisami” viz. young male devotee of virtues. They feel pride, as all others call them as “Sami” with respect. Of course, young and old women going there has been a regular feature and none took it differently……Thus, all have been going on well for so many years, but, in 2018, it has become a big issue. Ironically, instead of real woman-devotees, as they respected the tradition and do not want to violate, in spite of the judgment, few non-Hindu women, that too, journalists tried to enter with police force affecting the sentiments of crores of Hindus. How many of Indians would have red 411 pages judgments is also not known.

, Sabarimala -Indu Malhothra

It is not dissent judgement, but, people’s judgment: The Judge, Indu Malhothra, has summarized her order as follows: “The summary of the aforesaid analysis is as follows:

 

(i) The Writ Petition does not deserve to be entertained for want of standing. The grievances raised are non-justiciable at the behest of the Petitioners and Intervenors involved herein.

 

(ii) The equality doctrine enshrined under Article 14 does not override the Fundamental Right guaranteed by Article 25 to every individual to freely profess, practise and propagate their faith, in accordance with the tenets of their religion.

 

(iii) Constitutional Morality in a secular polity would imply the harmonisation of the Fundamental Rights, which include the right of every individual, religious denomination, or sect, to practise their faith and belief in accordance with the tenets of their religion, irrespective of whether the practise is rational or logical.

 

(iv) The Respondents and the Intervenors have made out a plausible case that the Ayyappans or worshippers of the Sabarimala Temple satisfy the requirements of being a religious denomination, or sect thereof, which is entitled to the protection provided by Article 26. This is a mixed question of fact and law which ought to be decided before a competent court of civil jurisdiction.

 

(v) The limited restriction on the entry of women during the notified age group does not fall within the purview of Article 17 of the Constitution.

 

(vi) Rule 3(b) of the 1965 Rules is not ultra vires Section 3 of the 1965 Act, since the proviso carves out an exception in the case of public worship in a temple for the benefit of any religious denomination or sect thereof, to manage their affairs in matters of religion.

 In light of the aforesaid discussion and analysis, the Writ Petition cannot be entertained on the grounds enumerated hereinabove. It is ordered accordingly”, thus, passed the judgment. Hence, it is not any dissent judgment, but, people’s judgment and perhaps, God’s judgment!

, Sabarimala -Atheist CM

With obvious politicization of the issue, the Temple authorities and the Kerala government have decided not to appeal against or file revision petition. Contrary, the Hindus of Kerala have started their protests in a large scale in peaceful manner. Thousands of women came on the roads and marched towards Government offices with the pictures of Ayyappa and banners questioning the judgment that affects their devotion and tradition. On 03-10-2018 [Wednesday], more than 20,000 devotees marshalled through social media, mostly women, held a protest march in Pandalam, headquarters of an erstwhile royal family that once governed the temple. The leading Malayalam daily, Malayala Manorama, carried a front-page picture of the march but Mathrubhumi came under attack for carrying a report on an inside page and without a picture. About the downplying of this event the media groups themselves were divided, because of the government pressure[3]. The entry of Nair Service Society (NSS), a socio-culture organisation of the influential upper-caste community has only added steam to the protests. The NSS also happens to be the first to decide on filing a review petition against the judgement[4]. As usual, the ruling Communist and Congress parties started accusing BJP, RSS and other right wing organizations for such upsurge, but, the fact has been different, as the Left wing media groups have been heavily anti-Hindu affecting the sentiments. Thus, ironically, the few women Mohammedan, Christian and secular categories came and started the communalization of the issue. These have been the credentials and back ground of the women who started creating problem.

, Sabarimala -libi jurno

L. S. Libi atheist posing as a devotee with dress!: The NDTV reported that[5]C.S. Libi, Christian posed as a Hindu, was among the first to attempt the trek to the shrine on the day the temple gates were to open. Days before her visit, she had posted her plan on Facebook. The protesters had apparently seen her post and decided to block her the moment she reached a bus stand in Pathanamthitta, 65 km from the temple. The police had shielded her from a group of protesters who had surrounded her at the bus stop. They threatened to burn the bus if it drove towards the temple’s base camp, news agency IANS had reported.” But, the event was videographed ny many and she had to return, because of her contradicting answers and encounter she had with women devotees and others at the bus-stand[6]. Another woman, Libi CS, was arrested at a bus stop by worshipers who accused her of wearing jeans[7]. “This is how a lady should go to the temple.” She claims to have observed penance, but if you look at the pearls of the Sabarimala necklace, it is very clear that she has worn it today. “Yesterday or yesterday, it is not acceptable to us and she will not be allowed to go there,” said a group of angry female protesters. Libi CS, a journalist, posted on Facebook her plan to visit Sabarimala Temple. The protesters apparently saw her post and decided to block her as soon as she arrived at a bus station in Pathanamthitta, 65 meters from the temple. “Friends, we are leaving all four for Sabarimala today, which includes atheists like me and two devotees,” said Libi’s Facebook message[8].

The Truth about the leaving mortal coil of Swami Vivekanda: Stop propagating nonsense against him!

August 1, 2017

The Truth about the leaving mortal coil of Swami Vivekanda: Stop propagating nonsense against him!

Did Vivekanda die for controlling sex- Rekha Padmanabhan

Propaganda against Swami Vivekananda: July 4th happened to be the “Sraddhanjali Day” of Swami Vivekananda, but, this year 2017, I missed it, because of preoccupation with personal problems and conferences.  The Christian propaganda was there, ever since, he dominated the West with his Vedantic influence. That propaganda continues even today by the Christian missionaries and anti-Hindu propagandists with their fantastic stories spun and spread from time to time. I wanted to prepare a note on his “departure from this world,” as some people started misinterpreting his end with their own imaginative suggestions, concocted suppositions and ill-motivated ideas, turning into hypotheses. Ironically, some people have started doing under the guise of “motivational speaker” and so on[1]. Some other give their own of explanation[2]. Thus, I have been compelled to prepare this note hurriedly with the materials available in the internet.

If anybody attacks me, simply ignore his existence-Swami Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda stood against all odds: Swami Vivekananda suffered heavily due to his restriction of food and ill-health. Slowly, he agreed to wear the warm cloths to protect himself from the climate in USA and European counties. Of course, writers too, used contribute their mite in 20th and 21st centuries with their “scientific” and “rational” interpretations. Thus, the  story Hindustan Times goes in this way: “In a life-span of only 39 years, Swami Vivekananda, who spread the message of India’s spiritual heritage across the world, battled several health problems all along and no less than 31 diseases and ailments[3]. ‘The Monk as Man’ by renowned Bengali writer Shankar lists insomnia, liver and kidney diseases, malaria, migraine, diabetes and heart ailments as some of the 31 health problems that the Swami faced in the course of his life[4]. Shankar describes Swami Vivekananda’s health problems using a Sanskrit quote ‘shariram byadhimandiram’ — the body is the temple of diseases”. How he suffered (from dysentery and fever) during the Paris “World Conference of Religion” was also well known. Yet, he fought battle, many times singularly.

Swami Vivekananda foresees about his health

‘Better to play football than read the Gita’: Yes, Swamiji wanted Indian youth to be assertive and strong to fight, but, the “Hindustan Times” goes to say, “Ironically, Vivekananda used to emphasise greatly on physical strength and is known for the shocking statement ‘Better to play football than read the Gita’. One of the perennial problems that Vivekananda lived with was chronic insomnia and in a letter to Shashi Bhushan Ghosh dated May 29, 1897, he confided “I never in my life could sleep as soon as I got into bed.” The previous year, Vivekananda seemed to have written to his ‘dhira mata’ (Sara Bull) from New York complaining about his lack of sleep. “My health has nearly broken down. I have not slept even one night soundly in New York since I came … I wish I could go to the bottom of the sea and have a good, long sleep.” He knew about his body and mind the strength of them. Therefore, now one need not comment that, “Ironically, Vivekananda used to emphasise greatly on physical strength and is known for the shocking statement ‘Better to play football than read the Gita’, as one has to understand the meaning. He did not say that you should not read Gita, but, play football!

Swami Vivekananda knew when he would die

Swamiji was suffering from diabetes: It is also known that Vivekananda used to suffer from diabetes like his father and at that time suitable drugs were unavailable. Shankar writes that Vivekananda had tried different modes of treatment ranging from allopathic, homoeopathic to ayurvedic and had also taken advice from all kinds of quasi-medical experts from various countries. He narrates that in the summer of 1887, Vivekananda (whose real name was Narendranath Dutta) had fallen very ill due to overstrain and lack of food. During this period, he also suffered from gallstones, and acute diarrhoea. Later, during the same summer, he came down with typhoid and problems in the urinary tract. “Narendranath’s abdominal pains were a source of great anxiety,” Shankar says. Shankar wonderfully chronicles the various medical problems Swami Vivekananda faced during his stint as a wandering monk in the country and across the world, and why he cut short his journey in Cairo, Egypt, to return to India. It was to French operatic soprano Rosa Emma Calvet that Vivekandanda had declared in Egypt that he would die on July 4, 1902. “Swami Vivekananda’s eyes filled with tears. He said he wanted to return to his country to die, to be with his gurubhais,” Shankar wrote. The fateful evening of July 4, 1902, Vivekananda passed away in Belur following a third heart attack, completing 39 years, five months and 24 days.

Narasingha Prosad Sil, Swami Vivekananda-A Reassessment, Selingrove- Susquehana University Press, USA, p.141.

The rupture of a blood vessel in his brain was reported as a possible cause of death[5]: There is no mystery surrounding the fact that Swami Vivekananda died in the year 1902. But not all of us know the real reason(s) behind his demise. Let’s explore the various theories related to Swami Vivekanda’s death as well as some unknown aspects of his life…Swami Vivekananda was born on 12 January 1863. On 4 July 1902 (the day of his death) Vivekananda awoke early, went to the chapel at Belur Math and meditated for three hours. He taught Shukla-Yajur-Veda, Sanskrit grammar and the philosophy of yoga to pupils. Later, along with several colleagues, he planned Vedic college in the Ramakrishna Math. It is stated that on the day of his sad demise, in the evening, around 7 p.m, Vivekananda went to his room, asking not to be disturbed. He died the same night at 9:10 p.m. while meditating. According to his disciples, Vivekananda attained Mahasamadhi; the rupture of a blood vessel in his brain was reported as a possible cause of death. His disciples believed that the rupture was due to his brahmarandhra (an opening in the crown of his head) being pierced when he attained Mahasamadhi[6]. Vivekananda fulfilled his prophecy that he would not live for forty years. He was cremated on a sandalwood funeral pyre on the bank of the Ganges in Belur, opposite where Ramakrishna was cremated sixteen years earlier. Swami Vivekananda, left his physical body on July 4th, 1902, when he was just 39 years old. Many people have wondered – what caused an evolved soul like Swami Vivekananda to die at such a young age? Aren’t yogi’s able to extend their own life-span and live for very long periods of time? As this was written in 2015, obviously, it was written based on “cardiac arrest ” hypothesis floated .

Narasingha Prosad Sil, Swami Vivekananda-A Reassessment, Selingrove- Susquehana University Press, USA, p.141-2

How Swamiji predicted his death!: Swami Vivekananda wrote this in a letter to Sister Nivedita in March 1900, as noted by Anshul Chaturvedi, in his blog. In my fraying, massively underlined and marked copy of Letters Of Swami Vivekananda, I’d circled the words “I know the time and place” the very first time I read and pondered over it, over a decade back, and made a small note against it: ‘of death, obviously.’ I could find no other explanation. It was, after all, just over two years after writing that letter that Vivekanda died, on July 4, 1902, preceded by detailed study of the almanac in the preceding days, the specific pointing out of the spot of his cremation three days before his demise, and instructions to brother-disciples on the future of the Ramakrishna Math on the day itself[7]. Earlier in that year, Romain Rolland has noted that Vivekananda began to decline to express his opinion on the questions of the day with the response, “I can no more enter into outside affairs; I am already on the way.” The man who had said “I shall not live to be forty years old” and moved on at 39 was clearly no stranger to his physical end and approached it with a sense of anticipation, if not familiarity[8].

Swami Vivekananda knew about his death- letter to Nivedita

Sex stories floated picked up Kundalini, yoga and so on: Our people do not want read carefully or going into facts by reading at least the “Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda”. According to his disciples, “Vivekananda attained Mahasamadhi; the rupture of a blood vessel in his brain was reported as a possible cause of death. His disciples believed that the rupture was due to his brahmarandhra (an opening in the crown of his head) being pierced when he attained Mahasamadhi”. But, the fact is Swamiji opposed the “Tantric” practices, particularly, involving Vamachara. “This form of practice must never even be mentioned in the Math. Ruin shall seize the wicked man, both here and hereafter, who would introduce vile Vamachara into His fold”- thus, Swami Vivekananda warned the members of Alambazar Math, 27 April 1896. But, now, people without any sense write, he died because he could not control sex, masturbate………………….and so on.

Narasingha Prosad Sil, Swami Vivekananda- on sex, marriage

Swamiji had been very clear about it: Hence the swami makes it clear that left-hand Tantra is absolutely forbidden for the monks of the Ramakrishna mission; indeed, they are explicitly warned not even to speak of such horrible rites, on threat of expulsion from the order[9]: “The Vamachara form of practice . . . should on no account be practised at the Math. Anyone demuring to this must step out of this Order. This form of practice must never even be mentioned in the Math. Ruin shall seize the wicked man, both here and hereafter, who would introduce vile Vamachara into His fold”. Only by purging this demoralizing parasite can India recover its virile, masculine power: “Just look to your own province and see how this Vamachara (immoral practices) of the Tantras has entered into your very marrow. Even modern Vaishnavism . . . is saturated with Vamachara! We must stem the tide of this Vamachara which is contrary to the spirit of the Vedas[10].

Kundalini-Swami Vivekananda

Swamiji pointed out how historically, the practices were degenerated: Swamiji explained, “Give up this filthy Vamachara that is killing your country…. When I  see how much the Vamachara has entered into our society, I find it a most disgraceful place with all its boast of culture. These Vamachara secrets are honeycombing our society in Bengal. . . . The Bengali Shastras are the Vamachara shastras. They are published by the cartload and you poison the minds of your children with them. . . . Fathers of Calcutta, do you not feel ashamed that such horrible stuff as these Vamachara Tantras . . . should be put into the hands of your boys and girls, and their minds poisoned, and that they should be brought up with the idea that these are the Shastras of the Hindus? If you are ashamed, take them away from your children and let them read the true Shastras, the Vedas, the Gita and the Upanishads[11]. The original spirit essentially valid Hindu scriptures that were only later corrupted by degenerate Buddhism and the obscene rites of the left-hand (Vàmàcàra) path: “I denounced only the present corrupted form of Vamachara of the Tantras. I did not denounce the Mother worship of the Tantras. . . . The purport of the Tantras is to worship women in a spirit of Divinity. During the downfall of Buddhism, the Vamachara became very much corrupted, and that corrupted form obtains to the present. . . . I denounced only these corrupt…practices”[12].

Kundalini-Swami Vivekananda warns against Vamachara

Leave Swami Vivekananda: Nowadays, it has become a fashion to pretend that all could be solved, just by talking. Some have started claiming that “Do not take medicine…..You do this, you can be free from all diseases”.  Yet another claim, “I solve all your personal, family ……problems, just by talking”, that is, just listen to what I talk, that is enough! Here, they need not resort to denigrate others for theor promotion. For “sex” control etc., Swami Vivenananda need not be dragged into. Therefore, Indians on any capacity or pretext need not misinterpret Swami Vivekananda, without reading him. One should at least read the “Complete works”, before commenting or talking about Swami Vivekananda. For one’s propagation of name, fame or business, he need not be brought to trivial issues.
