Ayyappa day Observation -- Rules and Restrictions Ayyappa day Observation -- Rules and Restrictions One of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails. Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English.
Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments. Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.
All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord. Perhaps, Bhagavad Gita too shares a similar thought. Avoid gambling, smoking, alcoholic drinks and non-vegeterian dishes. When you meet a peer, who is in the day observation, treat him on par Lord Ayyappa.
Tell him Sharanam and offer pranams to him. There is no age, degree or other demarcatory restrictions in this whatsoever. Your Guruswamy is on par Ayyappa. Service to your Guru is service to the Lord Himself. The spirtual observation that you are on, you need to offer the fullest possible respect to Lord Ayyappa. There is no place of ego clashes in this whatsoever. Just because you are on the observation, your family members need not incur additional work burdens either physically or fiscally or otherwise.
In the same vien, ensure that your family members do not obstruct or disturb your observation in any way. Let them understand the full depth of the observation. Wait for that year. You are eligible for the yatra from the next year. You can humbly surrender to the Lord each time as Kanni Samy and with that reverence, if you worship the Lord, He bestows in you all His divine blessings. With the spirtual observation on, you are being treated on par Lord Ayyappa.
You need to preserve that respect you recieve and surrender unto the Lord. All people would offer Pranams to you, for this reason. There is no reason of gaining a superiority or ego because of this.
You are just a relay server. Just think of the Lord and surrender those pranams to Ayyappa and seek His blessings for the people too. All women, including your spouse are now on par your mother. Treat them with this vision. Self Beautification is prohibited during the observation. In the worst inevitable case, follow strict vegetarianism.
A Tulasi leaf with you can help you ward off lot of evils. Hope these small tips would help you a great way in getting up with the Spiritual observation for Lord Ayyappa to get His complete blessings.
The name Ayyappan sometimes spelled as Ayyappa or Aiyappan may be related to the similar sounding ancient term Arya. The Sanskrit term Arya Pali: Ariya is found in ancient texts of Hinduism and Buddhism, where it means the "spiritually noble, extraordinary, precious ones". The alternate theory links it to the Malayali word acchan and Tamil word appa which means "father", with Ayyappan connoting "Lord-father". In some regions, Ayyappa and Ayyanar are considered to be the same deity given their similar origin. Others consider him as different because their worship methods are not the same. He is revered for his ascetic devotion to Dharma — the ethical and right way of living, to deploy his military genius and daring yogic war abilities to destroy those who are powerful but unethical, abusive and arbitrary. This interaction between Shiva and Mohini is mentioned in the Bhagavata Purana , but Ayyappan is not mentioned.
