Beyond the Veil - The #Ayyappan Sankalpa — A Long Thread !
The #SabarimalaTemple is many centuries-old and hosts an ancient deity, Sastha — #Ayyappan the main Vigraha (idol) of the temple, the deity is worshipped in the form of a Naishtika Brahmachari
This temple is not a prayer hall but is an energy centre; the Vigraha of #Ayyappan is not the representation of a God who is omnipresent, but as a source of energy (Chaithanya) from a mystical dimension.

SHOULD YOU FIGHT: GREEK #GODS EDITION

#FolkloreThursday

picture citations at end
ZEUS: King of the Gods. Goes HAM if his throne's challenged, ranging from "lightning bolt" to "eating girlfriend in case her 👏 currently 👏 non-existent 👏 2nd child one day threatens him." Do not fight, esp. bc you KNOW he'll try & turn it into a makeout sesh halfway through.
HERA: Queen of the Gods. DO NOT FIGHT JFC DON'T DO IT DON'T. Check the fate of some of Zeus's sidepieces (ex. Io, Lamia) & tell me you want to take her on.
Plus her life seems pretty joyless (best compliment she gets is "cow-eyed," come ON) so just be chill & leave her alone.

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
