Today is Pankuni Uthram. A very very special day for Ayyappa devotees.
A pilgrimage to Sabarimala temple in Kerala in the olden days used to be a long, hard, traditional, rigorous affair with lot of devotion, discipline and dedication involved. I remember, in the 70s when my maternal uncle and my father used to go by walking for Sabarimala darshan. It used to be 10-15 days trip with absolutely no communication once they start till they return. It has changed significantly now. With modern facilities, faster transportation and increased communication facilities, it has become a casual affair for many. In this video veteran singer Veeramani Raju shares his experience of Sabarimala darshan and cautions devotees to not take it lightly whenever they plan their Sabarimala trips.
Welcome to share this video and spread his glory. Swamiye Saranam Ayyappa.
