SABARIMALA AYYAPPA SEVA SAMAJAM
Swami Saranam!All cities and villages are getting ready for receiving lakhs of pilgrims flooding to Sabarimala, abode of universalbrotherhood and equality.With their hearts surging with devotion, the pilgrims in groups, wearing blue or black clothes, and carrying on theirhead the irumudikkettu, the package of offerings and provisions, used to trek long distance in groups to reach theshrine of Lord Ayyappa. The routes covered small towns, villages and long stretches of mountainous terrain, of dense forests inhabited by wild animals. About Fifty years back, in those days the maximum number of pilgrimsreaching Sabarimala in any peak season was only thousands.Today, the scene is drastically different. The latest estimate of their number is around Fifty millions. The numberis steadily increasing every year. The whole nation reverberates with the chanting – swamiye Saranam Ayyappa, -O Lord Ayyappa, you are refuge.The pilgrims from various parts of the country on their way to Sabarimala are suffering a lot due to the lack of basicamenities and facilities.
Sabarimala Ayyappa Seva Samajam, a voluntary organization registered as a public charitable trust and devotedfor the welfare and well being of Ayyappa devotees is extending all facilities to devotees on their way fromdifferent states to Sabarimala. In bus stands, railway stations, road junctions, public places and templepremises, the Samajam proposes to open Ayyappa Seva Kendras so as to provide maximum facilities to devoteessuch as Annadanam (Feeding) drinking water, accommodation, information and medical aid.
In Sabarimala, Pamba, Nilakkal, Erumeli, Pandalam, Perinad and other main camping places hundreds of volunteerswill be engaged to distribute food, drinking water etc., round the clock to serve and save Ayyappa devotees.Offering of food and drinking water to the needy, hungry and thirsty Ayyappas who are suffering hard on their wayis really a worship and Pooja to Lord Ayyappa.
We request all to assist us extending all sorts of help and guidance by offering food, materials in kind, or cash forthis noble and genuine cause.
