    :hello: Festival of Madurai Meenakshi :hello:

    Due to COVID Fear,
    the size of gathering at the temple town for watching the ten day long proceedings of Pooja and procession are in low key.

    It would be of interest to atheists community the world over the deity and Temple’s association with a British Collector and the macabre yet concluded in pleasant manner the incident happened in undivided India.

    I have been to this temple twice. It is so magnificent. Puja and meditation help us from not getting panicky but the treatment is in hospital.

    Thanks for your words. I agree. But we have miracle stories in which patient get cured only by offering sincere prayers.
    The long poem sang in front of the Lord Guruvayrappan cured completely the author in instalments. Fir more in link

    :hello:#4 am glad of contents.
    Wish the baby all the best.
    Vihan (विहान), which in Sanskrit means 'early morning' or 'dawn' equivalent Tamil உதயம். Google throws lots of predictions and future for girls named Vihana.

    The temple is an architectural marvel but it is just a story, not history. Anecdotal evidence is questionable as it could be n illusion, hallucination, mere belief. The story itself could be an interesting well-spun yarn.

    Thank you Sir for visiting here and your comments.
    I do not know whether Temple records are historic proofs but these records are preserved in which the jwellery including the golden pair of shoes donated by the British collector Rose Peter mentioned.
    Regards.
