You’re worried because you have fallen behind in a bill payment, and a collection agency is hounding you.

Ramarathnam adds, “The world today is characterized by an extreme sense of avarice even among the religious community. A Sion-based priest who performs poojas at film star’s homes was famous for demanding gold chains and gold rings in the Matunga belt along with his fees for conducting religious ceremonies. In South Indian Brahmin families, there is a tradition of visiting the “kula deivam” (or family deity) after a marriage in the family.

The cover story would be something enticing like – “How to ensure your ward’s success in exams” – this is an annual feature during the months of March and April.

Reams and reams of forecasts are written that range from “you will fight with your brother”, “mother’s health needs attention,” “please be careful with your boss”, “you will suffer from stomach ache and diarrohea” and “you will enter into a land dispute”.
Topping this list is “Jaya TV” and we know it is the media channel promoted by J Jayalalitha, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. Then another magazine was regularly sending “tantras” to be kept in the pooja room with assurance that placing this “tantra” in the pooja room will result in a flood of gold coins in one’s home. A new breed of people (who have taken VRS from PSU banks) have joined this bandwagon to become astrologers. M R Ramarathnam, a retired professional, based in Chennai, says, “The real astrologers will never take money for predictions.
Within a week, the astrologer replied to him with a detailed letter saying that his life was in danger and someone had performed black magic on him.
The temples of the family deities located in hamlets are seldom maintained well as none of the younger generation of Brahmins is willing to take up the job of a village priest. Many Brahmin boys who get into inter-caste marriages soon lose interest in the Tamil culture or things like “sandhya vandanam”. A spiritual bent of mind will work wonders for you but you really do not have to depend on what is published in all these magazines or what the astrologers forecast (mostly wrongly). This state of affairs in Tamil Nadu is not surprising as years ago, one of my co-passengers in the Dadar-Chennai express remarked wryly – ‘what sort of people are those who vote for film stars after seeing movies‘. With suggestions for every day of the week, our recommendations will keep you busy on any budget.
Students and staff assist the Campus Minister with planning all liturgies, prayer services and retreats. This fortunate timing could be written off as a coincidence but you don’t believe in coincidences, so you say a quiet prayer of thanks. They believe there is an ultimate purpose for them, and they glean hope from that belief even in the most tragic and distressing of circumstances.
The trauma-sensitive yoga described in this book moves beyond traditional talk therapies that focus on the mind, by bringing the body actively into the healing process. Now, in this wise and richly practical book, he has distilled those broad teachings into a roadmap for becoming the person you were meant to be. The common theme in all these magazines is dollops and dollops of free spiritual advice (new mantras being published every month) besides of course the ubiquitous astrological advices. Then there are a few articles that talk about if Ram did the right thing in ousting Seeta from Ayodhya – never mind if these have been published a zillion times before. Exhorting people to be spiritual is one thing and fooling them by way of astrological advices is another thing. Astrological advices, if one were to go by what is being published in these magazines is relatively simple. He approached an astrologer who did what is called as a “prasannam” – it is a kind of forecast that is made using sea-conches and shells. Dwindling population of Tamil Brahmins in villages in Tamil Nadu (& even in cities) is posing a major challenge.
Ramarathnam adds, “Even those Brahmin boys who marry within the community do not perform the gayatri japa regularly. Mumbai based professional C Vaidyanathan, a logistics expert, believes that self-confidence is the key. Do not be surprised if actress Khushboo becomes chief minister of Tamil Nadu in the future (after all, people of Tamil Nadu had built a temple for her!). Its beauty is awesome and you remember teachings from your childhood that all living things have a purpose; there is a balance in nature. This allows trauma survivors to cultivate a more positive relationship to their body through gentle breath, mindfulness, and movement practices. It is filled with revealing true stories, provocative exercises, and practices for unlocking your inner guidance. Almost 25% of population in Tamil Nadu seems to be looking at astrology as a full time career option. The magazines are then filled with pages after pages about new temples and at the end of the article, it is mandatory to mention that visiting this shrine will help the poor earn wealth, parents to get their daughters married, unemployed to get a job, sick to get healed fast.
You can become an astrologer if you only collect the previous year’s issues of the same magazine. Gone are the days when astrological advices were given cautiously keeping the reading public in mind. While there is nothing wrong in publishing information about new and unknown temples, the added “masala” about the benefits which is completely unsubstantiated rankles the reader the most. There is also an explanation that they offer that they also need to survive and so they need the money”. It is like Vividh Bharati playing the same “Man Chahe” geet program every Wednesday without anyone noticing it. The priest is summoned and he orders that a golden statue of cat is made and donated to him to seek salvation from the sin of the cat-hatya.
Neither can you say if “ Rekha, Madan, Rinku, Chinky and Pintoo” from Udhampur have really requested a particular Hindi song. His wife rubbished the astrologer’s predictions and gave him the confidence to continue with his work. But if money is solely their criterion and performing religious rites is secondary to that, then is this fair? Even as deliberations and negotiations are on with the priest, there is a shriek from the kitchen.
27 years after the incident, the gentleman is still alive and though his wife passed away two years ago, he can’t thank her enough.
