Jai Shree Ram 🚩 🚩 🚩
Who knows the greatness of OUR Lord !
Who can measure HIS length & breadth?

One Supreme Being divides HIMSELF to create the Universe, manifests in diff forms to protect people with diff state of mind & attract them to HIMSELF!🙏
#SanatanaDharma #Hinduism
While @vijayanpinarayi the loyal Vatican agent is hell bent on insulting #LordAyyappa & destroying His Naishitka bramachariyam by allowing women (menstruating age) the
protests against this attack on #SanatanaDharmam is unfortunately confined to Kerala alone ! #Sabarimalatemple
Our strength-divided by languages, rituals,food habits bt United by common belief in #SanatanaDharma!
Unfortunately Hindus lost these values due to successive invasions, colonial rule & thiruttu #Dravidam
resulting in GOD's becoming region specific..North/south!
Arya/dravida🙆
Thread detailing #SastaWorship (Lord Ayyappa an incarnation of MahaSasta) once prelavant wherever #SanatanaDharmam spread & was practiced( Pan Indian, South East Asia)..but slowly restricted to South TN & Kerala now.
Once worshipped widely, now shrunk to a village diety.
Puranas state that from the Union of Mohini ( Hari in women form) & Shiva ( Hara) ,Maha sastha was born .
He was the son of Shiva just as Murugan and Vinayaka.
Maha Sastha is Harihara putra ,who manifests in several forms from time to time ,to save the ordinary mortals from adharmic forces !
One of his Divine manifestation on Earth is in the form of Lord Ayyappa.
Ayyan + ar = Ayyannar -TN
Ayyan + appan = Ayyappan -Kerala
Periasamy etc..
Some of his other names .
Paraya Gupta : Lord of all philosophies and is beyond all philosophies!
Aryadada : He protects the people of the world like a father!
Gurunatha : He is known in Telugu desam by this name.
Viprapujya : Sri Satha worshipped by knowledgeble brahmins.
MahaSastha performed many Leelas.
Various puranas give account of his bravery , benevolence filled Leela episodes across bharatam.
In Kasi, kosala,Nepal, Assam , dravida desam.

MahaSastha was revered by all #Sanatanis unlike now... restricted to only South of india 🙏.
Puranas mention sasta worshipped as idols ,lingams & altars in temples.
He is Naishitka Brahmachari(LordAyyappa) at sabarimala alone.
In several places he appears with his consorts.
Each temple tradition unique, it's the will of the presiding diety how he wishes to be worshipped.
Some unique Sasta shrines:
Achan Kovil : border of Ker& TN
Original idol installed by Sri ParasuRama himself.
Usuppur Sasta:Ayyannar one of the 8 sastas around chidambaram temple.
He is the family diety of Brahmins known as thillai vazh Andhanar.
PatalaAyyanR - trichy malakottai.
Nayanmars have sung in praise of MahaSasta !
Many SriVaishnavaite Divyadesams along the Kerala border have Sasta sannidis inside them.
Need any more reason 4 Vaishnavas, shaivaites, Murugan , Vinayaka ,Shakthi followers to raise voice against atrocities in #sabarimala ?!
TN Govt/ CM #Edapadi so far haven't opened their mouth on this attack on #SanatanaDharma by the commies..nt surprising!
But they better realize that Revenues of #TDB have dipped
Reasons:Ayyappa devotees abstaining 4m donating to hundial & dip in arrival of Devotees due to unrest
TN temples ( Srirangam, madurai..etc) Revenues triple during the montha Oct - Jan!
Reason: Devotees of Ayyappa from AP/ Karnataka/NORTH visit all the major temples on their way to sabarimala..if unrest continues in kerala, #TNHRCE Revenues will surely take a hit!
@CMOTamilNadu
Edapadi govt ready to loose a huge revenue ?
A glance thru prev yr balance sheets of any major temple will clearly show...what will be the loss!
Hope at least this economics of religion prompts our political leaders to realize the gravity of the situation at
#SabarimalaTemple
