Ensuring the sustenance of the unique tradition and practices at Sabarimala is the duty of every Ayyappa devotee, Pandalam Palace Managing Committee president P.G. Sasikumara Varma has said.

Mr. Varma was inaugurating a meeting of Hindu religious leaders and various Ayyappa devotees’ organisations, organised by the Kerala unit of the Akhila Bharatha Ayyappa Seva Sanghom at Pandalam on Tuesday.

Mystery

He said the mystery behind the attempts to sabotage the centuries’ old custom and practices at Sabarimala in the name of progressive thinking should be exposed.

The debates and statements made by those who had not even visited Sabarimala had bruised the hearts of Ayyappa devotees.

The devotees would definitely overcome this crisis through their united efforts, he said. Mohan K. Nair, ABAS State council president, presided. The meeting has decided to organise prayer meetings at Pandalam, Perinad, Pampa and Sabarimala on August 17 and 18.
