Keralite Hindus across UK celebrating Mandala Kalam with Ayyappa poojas and Bhajans (Videos)
By A Staff Reporter LONDON Dec 8: Keralite Hindu religious followers across the UK are all immersed in celebrating the Mandala Kalam by hosting Ayyappa poojas and bhajans in all its religious fervour. Mandala Kalam (41 days starting from 1st of Malayalam month Vrischika) is the holiest of all the months for Ayyappa devotees worldwide. Devotees worldwide observe Mandala Vratham (practice of austerity) which is to purify ones’ own mind and body thus transforming individual self as a perfect instrument for communion with the Supreme Self – Lord Sri Dharma Sastha. This 41 days Vratham thus provide the commoners who are entangled in the pain & pleasures of this material world the opportunity to introspect their real nature and elevate themselves to the higher plane of Divine Consciousness. During this period, devotees perform Ayyappan Pooja and Bhajans (devotional offerings & singing glory of the Lord) which empowers them to realise the Divine Oneness principle – Tat Twam Asi (That thou Art). This famous mantra from Chandogya Upanishad emphasizes the fact that the divine life force behind the existence of this whole universe is the same life principle in you. This year Mandala Pooja is on December 26 and Makara Vilakku is on January 14, 2022 . See below a list of events being held in different parts of the UK during the holy Mandala Masam.
