📌#Thread about #Sabrimala and myths.
Real history of sabrimala.
Lord Shiva & Mohini had a child named Dharmashasta.
He ws born to fulfil the boon that Mahishi had acquired from Lord Brahma that only a son of both Shiva & Vishnu can kill her.
2. His name and the story of His birth is explained in detail in the Bhagavata Purana.
Dharmashasta manifested Himself in various forms - as Aiyyanar, as Ayyappan, and as Himself. Prince Manikantan of Pandalam (Sabarimala Ayyappan) was the specific avatar He took to kill Mahishi.
3. So while Dharmashasta finds a mention in the Puranas, it is unlikely that Ayyappa would also be mentioned as Ayyappa’s birth happened many years after the Puranas were composed.
3. Sabarimala is not a normal temple. It is opened for a very few days only. And every devotee have to wear the same kind of clothing - Black dhoti with no shirt.Everyone should have same kind of bag hence the rich, poor, middle class - everyone looks same.
4. Sabrimala doesnt allow menstrual girl is a complete MYTH. Girl from age 10-50 cant go there. My cycle started when I was 12 & heard some women had menopause at 40.

There is a story behind Sabrimala. Which Media is giving name of Brahmical patriarchy.
5) Before going to #Sabarimala there is a temple of Malikapurathamma. Ayyapa helped her to get out the curse, and fell for him. She proposed him for marriage. He refused saying that he had been ordained to go to forest and answer the prayers of devotees.
6) But, the young woman was persistent. So, Lord Ayyappa promised to marry her the day, kanni-swamis (new devotees) stop visiting him with their prayers at Sabarimala. She agreed to wait for him at a neighbouring temple. To respect love of her for him. Women doesnt enter there.
