This is a guest post by Shri Rohit Arya and has been reproduced here with his permission. This is a very important and timely one. Important because it outlines in clear terms why there is an age-restriction on the entry of women at Sabarimala. Timely because we are now in “Sabarimala season” and the deracinated SBNR, Cryptos and Feminazis are sure to mount an attack now. I have added an introduction to the post explaining the significance of the HariHara Putra Rupa and a few aspects of the Sabarimala pilgrimage:
Ayyappan or Sastha or HariHara Putran is a unique aspect, a singularly special Roopa, born out of the union of the beguiling and bewitching form of of “Vishnu-Maya” Mohini and “Hara” the attractive and captivating form of Shiva. This rupam was also created at a time when the Vaishnavas and the Saivas were at loggerheads and indulging in internecine quarrels. HariHara putran came into the world to show that Hari and Hara are one and the same – forms of the one Brahman that has invaded and pervaded all sentient and insentient forms and beings.
The Rupam was also created to perform a specific function. After the death of Mahishasura at the hands of Devi Durga, his sister Mahishi performed severe Tapas and received a Varam (boon) from Brahma that she could not be killed by either Shiva or Vishnu. It was to destroy this Mahishi that Shiva and Vishnu decided to come together in the form of Sastha, Ayyappan – if they could not vanquish Mahishi singly they would do it together. This child thus created was found by Rajashekara of Pandalam in Kerala and was named Manikantan. When Manikantan was 12 years old he killed Mahishi, revealed his true identity to his father and disappeared after telling his father to construct a temple at the place where his arrow would land. The arrow that Manikantan shot landed on the summit of Sabarimala and it was here that the temple was built by none other than Vishwakarma and the image of Ayyappan was prepared and installed by the great Parasurama himself.
The word Sastha itself means “Control” in fact “Supreme control” and also one who controls the entire world. He rides the white elephant called “Yogi” which was uncontrollable at one time but became submissive under Ayyappan. In Sabarimala the Sastha is permanently absorbed and functioning for the sole purpose of protecting the great Hindu Dharma – hence he is the Dharma-Sastha.
The pilgrimage to sabarimala is unique preceded by a Vratham of 41 days or 1 Mandalam – 30 days starting from the full-moon day and ending at the next full-moon + 11 days leading up to the Ekadashi day.
The Woman (Prakriti) is not available to the Man (Purusha) for these 41 days.
One day of the Vratha is equal to 1 week of pregnancy and is a supreme homage to the motherhood, when the man each year repays his debt to the woman by living a life of great control and austerity.
The dress code is black signifying the absorption of all external actions of the senses, absorption of the spectrum of colours and nullifying all differentiation
Please read below now as to why there is an age-restriction for entry of women into Sabarimala. A post written by Shri Rohit Arya.
I need to say this, because as yet nobody is saying it and it is in many ways the most important issue in the entire fake uproar over Sabarimala and the restriction of women’s entry. It needs to be absolutely clear that this nothing but a Breaking India initiative, one of the vital wounds they seek to deliver to Hindu society. There have been many arguments about why such restrictions exist, jungles, dangerous travel, tigers, shaucha, and more unthinking bullshit about menstruation than you could believe. But the core spiritual reason why such a restriction exists in this Ayappa temple alone, nobody is articulating it. In all other Ayyappa temples everybody is free to visit ,not only gender there is simply no restriction on religion or identity. But in Sabarimala the rules have to do with the nature of the deva in residence.
Simply put he is a Swami, a renunciate who is sworn to celibacy. He is perhaps the only sanyasi deva we have. Look at the Vigraham/ murti of Ayyappa. He sits with a meditation band as is common in Southern Yoga but his ankles are positioned in a manner that does bandhanam or locks both Mooladhara and Svadhisthana chakras.
I do not expect the deracinated culturally illiterate Hindus of today to look at a murti and figure out the nature and svabhava of the devata and what spiritual process were appropriate in his aradhana but it was common knowledge at one time. One look was enough.
Even if I knew nothing about Ayappa and was not a Malayalee I could look at the vigraham and say this is deva who needs your discipline and self control as a vital part of his sadhana. Roopams communicate teachings as to what will work or not. So the forty day vratam, you can understand why. Nothing else will do for this deva.
Now in India it is very common even today for Swamis to avoid all contact with women. The Swami Narains are one example and while the Dashanamis are a bit relaxed about that rule today I also know many many examples of them who will never speak directly to a woman. Dayananda Saraswati who founded the Arya Samaj is a great favorite of the ‘reformer’ bullshitters but he used to speak to women only from behind a curtain. The famous Hindu monastery In Hawaii is perhaps one of the most hardcore in existence today and the Swamis there are no different.
Even the Christian tradition had such rules for the monks in the days they had some spiritual shakti instead of being a conversion machine as it today. There is a monastery in Greece where no woman has set foot inside for nearly a thousand years. So this is an ancient spiritual tradition.
Ayyappa in Sabarimala is actually more relaxed about this he merely does not give darshan to women in the age frame when they get periods. There is an occult reason to that which makes perfect sense to yogis but the spurious logic of the Din I ILahi Hindus who make up the change agents will not comprehend any of it.
So the issue here is stark. The Breaking India forces, the secular adharmis, the Asura Prakriti wallahs, useful idiots like that loudmouthed moron Arnab, or despicable types like Trupti Desai, the entire Leftist cabal of Luytens media and Din I ILahis Hindus they are appropriating the right to dictate to Hindus the nature of the devata in the temple and what the rules of the temple ought to be.
Once again so that it is clear – those who have no skin in the game, no shraddha, those who are crypto converts are DICTATING TO HINDUS WHAT THEIR DEVATAS SHOULD BE. And we Hindus, we are bending over for this impertinence.
There is only one temple where Dharma Shastha as Ayyapa is known has been consecrated as a Swami. Leave it alone bloody fools.
Forcibly altering the rules of the kshetram will destroy the shakti of the sacred space – and it will bring about repercussions which are incalculable. But that is the idea – to destroy Hinduism one small piece at a time. The women of Kerala have launched a Ready to Wait response to the Asuric Right to Prey initiative but that is not enough. Hindus have conceded too much to the State apparatus. The organs of governance cannot dictate the parameters of spiritual life.
Such kshetrams were set up by great Rishis. In the case of Ayyapa by Parashurama himself. Kerala is not God’s Own Country, it is Parasurama Kshetram which is an entirely different thing from the conversion agenda phrase that is GOC. What will happen when the duffers of today set themselves up against Parashurama is something I would really like to see. I am cruel enough to wish that.
The line in the sand needs to be drawn now. This far and no further. Hindus cannot allow their enemies to define their religion – which is what is happening now.
The Asura Prakriti claims authority to define authenticity and certify validity of the Sanathana Dharma. No more.
Hum Mandir Wahi Banayenge!
Harihara suthan ayyan ayyappa Swamiyeeee Sharanam Ayyappa
and as always…Sarvam Shivamayam!
