My tweets in the past on this subject and why any Social Media study that rates their impact on actual ground issues are fake. It also spoke about some safe behaviour
This thread on Twitter was written when a Commie in Saffron protagonist, a newbie lawyer who with half baked knowledge of deracinated laws began seeking history of certain practices in Temples. His logic, if it is not dated to a time he cannot remember, it is not acceptable. Height was when he mocked much revered, time tested traditions of the state that feeds him (both bread for living and political affiliation that is supposed to uphold those traditions)
It began when he bluffed about an outcome of a Devaprashnam, and his advise on Sabarimala which his mentor took seriously and shot his mouth off, which was beginning of his steep downward slide. Despite changing the stance subsequently damage was done to him and there was no reversal.
(You can read about the power and accuracy of Devaprashnam, the Prasnamarga of the Jyotisha Shastra in my piece #KeralaFloods: Devaprashnam – Conversation with the Divine in Sabarimala & Warnings Ignored)
I cannot endorse nor refute the Shastra since I consider myself absolute ineligible to even talk about it leave alone judge it. Just reproduced the Facts as it were.
Adding some related tweets on the subject
This thread on Twitter was written, when someone claimed to be blessed by a Acharya (considered as God who walked the earth) of a Renowned Matha and goes berserk thinking it is a missile that can be used at will. No Sir. As life is showing a mirror, you realise you cannot use any Guru’s blessings frivolously (if at all there indeed was a blessing as being claimed). The Hashtag was used on Twitter in the context of the Save Sabarimala Tradition movement when this so called blessed devotee got it all wrong.
My thoughts on how blessings can work. An Englightened Guru gives His/Her Shishya gives unconditionally. But it works depending on the Shishya that we are. Sharing Original Tweet and also the Tweet Text (and a screenshot, just in case the Twitter account is compromised or taken down)
