Analogy behind Sastha Kalyanam
Sastha Thiru Kalyanam is a demonstration of the Jeevan merging with the Lord. All noble, scriptures and the glories of- the Lord always become complete with auspicious occasions like Thiru Kalyanam, Pattabhishegam etc. This is based on the analogy of Radha Kalyanam. Elite scholars used to say that there no character like Radha. Radha is nothing but the ’Maya' of Lord Krishna, It will come out when it likes in the feminine form of 'Radha’ and when Krishna wants, it will get back to Him. Similarly, we are also two particles of that Tharaka Brahmam. We have come into this mundane world to enjoy or suffer the fruits of previous births and Karmas. Atleast now, we have to free ourselves from all illusions and take steps to this mission is achieved by undertaking Sabarimala pilgrimage and also through such Nama Sankeerthanas, by scrupulously adhering to
There may be some pertinent questions to be asked. When Jeevan is transformed as a 'Nayaki', how is it that the Lord is adorned with two Shakthis via Poorna and Pushkala?
The answer is very simple. The two Devis represent two margas to reach Him. Poorna represents Bhakthi Marga and Pushkala Ghana Marga just as Valli representing Bhakthi and Devasena the Gnana. Both roads lead to the same point and there need be no supremacy for one over the other. The names Poorna' and Pushkala appear in Lalitha
Sahasranamam. Poorna means 'Poornam’ that is all pervading. Pushkala means complacency and all happiness on attainment of wants. If we worship Sastha with Poorna and Pushkala, we will be bestowed with His omnipresence and longevity of life, with complacency. In Yoga marga, in everyone's body, there are three chords in the backbone system, called Ida, Pingala and Sushumna. Ida and Pingala represent Pooma and Pushkala and in Sushumna the Lord dwells. All these three chords meet at the eyebrow centre in our forehead at Agna Chakra. Sabarimala represents Agna Chakra where the Universal Master accepts us and directs us towards the Supreme lights that is Makara Jyothi.
The Lord is Sivam (iatam) that is motionless. If it has to function, it should be endowed with Shakthi, the Mother God. Only then, the Lord adorned with His Shakthi could function and grant boons to His devotees. Sri Dharma Sastha at Sabari Hills is Nirguna Brahma and exists in undisturbed deep meditation. For getting boons for fulfilling our mundane wants. He has to be worshipped as 'Saguna Brahma` with qualities.
As Sagune Brahma, He is adorned with His Shakthi. Lord Hariharaputhra, the very implication of the name expresses that he is born of two positives Shiva and Vishnu. Hence, if the Lord has to function, He must be adorned with the Sakthi aspects of
Shiva and Vishnu and accordingly Durga take the form of Pushkala and Lakshmi transforms herself as Pooma. With the communion of the two Shakthis, the aspects of Vishnu and Shiva undertake the protection of good and destruction of evils, the duties enjoined on them. All the story aspects of Sastha Thiru Kalyanam to Poorna and Pushkala have been explained in earlier sessions. This occasion is meant exclusively to redeem ourselves from our past sins and become immortal, enjoying the eternal Sachitanandha by our good deeds. Let Lord Hariharaputhra, the Varada - the Universal Master - protects us all with His merciful Blessings and destroy evil forces, which go against Dharma. Let us all follow the principle of Saranagathi - absolute surrender, total surrender, unconditional surrender by taking refuge in heart.
