Prayers with Burning Desires

In Sripuram,Goddess Rajarajeshwari was sitting on a Golden Throne ( rathna simhasana) with her feet immersed with crores of flowers.

Sage Thurvasar came to take darshan of Goddess.On seeing her feet covered with plentiful flowers, he asked Goddess," Which King had prayed you with crores of flowers"? He also commented that you must have definitely got happy by his act.

Goddess replied,Sage,"If you want to see how happy I felt with his act,remove the flowers and see my feet."

Thurvasar did as she said and got shocked to see pearl like boils all over her feet.

Who did this injustice to you, Mother?

How your feet got wounded, asked Thurvasar?


Goddess replied, it is Lord Indra who prayed me in this way.The blistering heat of the flowers he offered wounded my feet.

Thurvasar asked,"How flowers can be boiling, Mother"?

Goddess replied, He never offered flowers for me..With crores and crores of desires,he prayed me.On every flower he kept a desire and offered me.So they are not flowers..they are his burning desires.


Devotion and prayer mustn't be for fulfilling one's own desire.. It is an selfish act.
 Pray for world's well-being and goodness of all creatures.

Bad thoughts and burning desires creates agitation in mind.
Desires can create positive energy and motivation,until it is good.But greediness and trying to hold/possess thing or a person will make our mind toxic.

So everyone must try to develop good thoughts and do good deeds to stay cool,calm and peaceful.

Your Character is your Race - Moral story

This is a short story about "Senthan Amutharar" who is a great devotee of Lord Shiva.

Approximately 1200 years ago, "Senthan" lived in Chidambaran, in India.He is a woodcutter.His daily income was not much.But, inspite of that, daily he offers food strictly to one Lord Shiva devotee,  before he partakes his food.

Once there was a heavy rain and he lived in utter poverty.That time a sivan-adigalar(a Lord Shiva Devotee) with dripping clothes in rain came to Senthan in hunger requesting for food.But Senthan himself was living in empty stomach for many days.

To his surprise, he had some rice flour and jaggery with him.So he happily mixed both and made it into small balls(which is called kali in Tamil) and offered him.

The delighted sivan-adigalar ate it happily with content and  packed the leftover kali in a towel and took with him,

The next day, King Chola  visited Lord Nataraja temple.He got shocked on seeing God's mouth smeared with kali, spilled all over the body.That night God himself came in King's dream and told proudly about Senthan's act of giving kali to him.And he also added that King could understand the greatness of Senthan in chariot festival.

The next day, thousands of people jointly tried to move the chariot but they couldn't. That time a Godly voice from sky informed 'If Senthan sing's "pallandu song" chariot will move'.Accordingly Senthan started the song saying "mannuga thillai" and at the same time chariot also started to move.King immediately felled in Senthan's feet and worshiped him.

The day Senthan offered kali to God is "Thiruvathirai" festival(also called Arudra Darisanam) which comes in Margazhi month.And that's the reason even today we are offering kali to  Lord Shiva on that day.

Through Senthan God conveys "Your Character is your Race" moral to the world.

A person cannot belong to inferior/superior race, just because he/she born in a particular ethnic group.It is only his/her character which decided his race.

Ramayana ("ayana" means journey)is a story about the Rama's journey on earth.It is one of the greatest Indian epic poem of Hinduism.It is originally written by the sage Valmiki  in Sanskrit as Valmiki Ramayana.

Who is Rama?

 Rama is an incarnation or(seventh) avatar of the Hindu God Vishnu.

Rama avatar is taken by the Lord Vishnu in Treta Yuga to destroy the evil forces and  uphold the dharma on earth.

Now we are living in Kali Yuga.Yuga means era.Era is the time period and the length of each yuga is many billion years.In Hinduism,one yuga cycle  is divided into four yugas namely Satya Yuga, Treta Yuga, Dwapar Yuga and Kali Yuga.

Like cycle (summer,winter,autumn,rainy) of seasons repeat,this yuga cycle also repeats sequentially.

Rama avatar is a guidance for human beings on righteous living.

In this avatar,God himself born on earth as human being,lived and showed us how a man should live following dharma ,morals and virtues in all times of life inspite of hardship faced.

Rama is the epitome of moral excellence.He is the man of virtues.He is the embodiment of love and kindness.
Lord Rama ruled Ayodhya with justice,happiness,peace and prosperity.His rule is popularly known as Rama Rajya and even today his rule is said to be the example of the ideal rule.

Rama is referred as Maryada Purushottama which means perfect man.

He is the paradigm of t,he ideal man,ideal son,ideal brother,ideal husband,ideal king and ideal friend.

This Supreme hero(Rama's) life is written in Ramayana consisting of 24000 verses in seven kandas(books).

Reading Ramayana(Rama's life) is a guidance to live the life on the right path.

24000 verses in Ramayana and 24 syllables of Gayathri Mantra

Gayathri Mantra is a powerful mantra consisting of 24 syllables.At the beginning of every 1000 verses in Ramayana,a syllable of Gayathri Mantra is placed by the sage Valmiki.

Chanting Gayathri Mantra is a prayer to Sun God,who guides our intellect and helps us in taking right decisions.

Keeping this in mind,sage Valmiki devised Ramayana using this powerful syllables of Gayathri Mantra.

So whoever reading Ramayana will get the blessings of Sun God and would develop a good intellect which would in turn help them in taking right decisions in life.

Ramayana is a story with full of moral values and we need more intellect and God's blessings to understand the good message conveyed.

In this story Ravana because of his lust in mind,he had a bad ending.

Don't be driven by your mind's whims and fancies which may carry good and bad thoughts.Use your intellect before taking decisions.

Ravana never followed dharma and so his life became complicated and ended badly.

Life will be without complications if we follow dharma.

 We cannot be 100% free from problems because there is ups and downs even in Rama's(God) life.

Everyone like Rama must learn to control their senses and use their mind with intellect without giving up dharma to win hardships in life.

It is a wonderful book with all life lessons.

Reading Ramayana brings positive changes in life and it is a very good book  for pregnant women to read during pregnancy time.It is believed that reading or listening to such a high moral book will create a good positive influence on the character of the baby.
