Parihara Sthalams

Parihara sthalams

The topic of ‘Parihara sthalams’ is an ocean and can’t be compiled just like that. Thanks to Sri Sankara Narayanan who gave the bulk of the information. I request the readers to add value to this list with the temples they know but I request to add only the genuine and very important temples for a specific problem. This is a dynamic list and so will update as and when I get some information.

Note:

1. I don’t know the alphabet of Astrology and this is NOT an an astrological site. So please don’t send your horoscope / birth-star details with your problem descriptions asking me for remedy. I’m not into that business and unfortunately I will not be able to publish such comments since it will easily take away the focus of this page. This is just a general list of temples that can give remedy for a particular problem and please use it that way.

2. I just received a very detailed and wonderful book on this topic by Mr.Radhakrishnan of Thimmakudi (Kumbakonam) for Rs 150/=
மனித வாழ்க்கையும் இறையருளும் (பரிகாரத் தலங்கள்)
The book is available from their offices at Kumbakonam @ 0435 2422347. It gives almost all the information you needed on this topic for all kinds of problems.

3. It is very well understood that all the problems we face today are due to the Karma of our current or the previous births. So we have to be very careful that we don’t add up to our bad karmas in the current birth to wander again to parihara sthalams in the next birth.

Sri AMR of Kumudham Jyothidam, in one of his articles says there is no point in going for a pariharam for Athrities and knee pains when we have animals / birds in the name of pets within cages / glass boxes for their life time. Any type/amount of pariharam is not going to give any remedy.

So before we look up for a Parihara sthalam, let us look within ourselves and make sure that we are not doing anything now to add up to the burden of our existing bad karmas.

  25. I have lost everything in my life , astrologers suggest that It is because of shaapa of previous lives. My DOB is 10oct1974, 03:45 am , Amritsar. Can you suggest if someone does Pooja as remedy to shaapa , how much of pooja or Mantra jaap is required to overcome it. I have been advsied to do Durga mantra but didnt suggest how many times.Secondly , if it is possible for you to look into my horoscope I want to know if there would be any possibility of reestablishing my career and my marriage life.
    Thanks

  26. How did certain temples become associated with certain needs? This seems very primitive to me. Shouldn’t any prayers be equally powerful in any Thevaram / Divyadesam Koil? Gods are everywhere!

    • It is a general rule that success depends on the right time and right place chosen for action. These are represented by two planets Saturn and Jupiter. When a person completely surrenders himself to God (by dropping the “I” in him), God appears before him wherever he likes and whatever form he wants. But human beings in this Kaliyuga neither completely surrenders not they refuse the concept (existence of God everywhere) of God. The Sages who were existing in this world in earlier years have thought about that and they have established temples in those places (“the right place is taken care of) which can help solve the problems of human beings and it is only the time which needs to be chosen by a person when he faces problems.

    • Dear Mr.Yogeswaran,
      I don’t have answers for many of your questions but all I can say is a visit to Thirukkarugavur Garbarakshambigai (for safe delivery, Garba means pregnancy and raksha means blessing) and Karuvalacheri (for the good growth of fetus – Karu in tamil means fetus and valar is growth) as mentioned in my paraihara sthalams page, both near Kumbakonam, will get you the needed spiritual power and divine blessings. Even if you are not able to go, try to do the archanais and get the prasadams from these temples through somebdy.
      Best of Luck and Regards,
      Raju

    3. Iluppaipattu (1 KM from Manalmedu, 16 KMs from Mayiladuthurai, 8 KMs from Vaitheeswaran Koil) – for GETTING BACK whatever one has LOST. Pancha Pandavas prayed here on the advise of Romar Rishi and got back their kingdom. And, for buying Vehicles also.

  39. I am Central Government. I attempt for deparmental examination for officer post but I always failed only. please give suggestion for suceeding departmental examination for promotion

    • Dear Mr. Nagarajan,

      Pray to Lord Hayagreeva on every wednesday or Punarpoosam day. Offer a big garland with Saamandipoo (yellow in colour). Ha means Guru. Ya means Saturn. In other words, one refers to time and another refers to place. Unless both combine, success is not assured. Also horse is supposed to run very fast. Energy is generally indicated as “horse” power. Also the energy should not go waste. Hence before the horse’s eyes, there will be a small piece of iron to make the run the horse in a particular route. Lord hayagreeva helps us to concentrate (route the energy in a phased and particular way) on everything and bring success to that. In case you have any queries, please call me in 98401 52081 or mail me in ragg1962@gmail.com

  40. What a splendid work you have done sir.

    Regarding Pitrusrardham

    With best regards and prayer to the Lord.

  49. These are 2 temples for eye problem near Chennai
    Ancient shrines near Sriperumbudur

    TWENTY KILOMETRES to the east of Sriperumbudur, the birthplace of Sri Ramanuja, is Manimangalam. The presiding deity at this ancient temple is Sri Rajagopala, who is seen in a standing posture facing east, with His consorts Sri Devi and Bhoo Devi.
    Sunkuvar Chatram is on the way to Kanchipuram from Chennai. To the north of Sunkuvar Chatram is Maduramangalam, the birthplace of the Vaishnava Acharya Sri Embaar.
    Embaar was the son of Peria Piraatti and Maduramangalam Vattamani Kamalanayana Bhattar. He was the first cousin of Sri Ramanuja and the nephew of Tirumalai Nambi. Born in the Tamil month of Thai, in the star Punarvasu, nine years after the birth of Sri Ramanuja, he was christened Govinda by his parents. Along with his cousin, he studied under Yadavaprakasa, the Advaita vidwan who lived in Tirupputkuzhi.

    If one plans to travel by car, one can leave Chennai at around 6 a.m. visit both Maduramangalam and Manimangalam and be back by 2 p.m.
    SUGANTHY KRISHNAMACHARI

    The Temple is located in a small village named “Kooram” and this village is about 8 – 9 Kms away from Kanchipuram.
    The Moolavar of the temple is Sri Aadhi Kesava Perumal in Nindra thirukKolam facing His thiruMugham towards East direction. Along with Him, Sri Devi and Sri Bhoomi Devi are found. The thiruNaamam of the Utsavar is Sri Aadhi Kesava Perumal.

  50. received this email sometime back
    Dear Friends,
    Recently I came across two great stotras which are both prayers addressed to Lord Vishnu and aim at cleaning our own body and mind. The phala Sruthi says that they would cure all diseases and that they even are a powerful remedy for black magic. All these depend on one’s faith. To those interested in them I have translated both of them and added to my blogs/web sites:-

    1.Apamarjana stotram http://stotrarathna.blogspot.com/2011/02/apamarjana-stotram.html
    2.Apamarjana Kavacham http://stotrarathna.blogspot.com/2011/01/apamarjana-stotram.html
    I have a humble submission. I only want to bring the majestic stotras along with their import in front of you as a translator. I am not requesting you to use them for any purpose. This would depend on your faith and nothing else. Ramachander
