https://www.pract4exam.com/how-much-do-you-know-about-drinks/

This is the price list for all the alcoholic beverages that are currently being sold at TASMAC and ELITE stores in Tamil Nadu. If you are new to Tamil Nadu, you need to know a few terms while asking for any liquor. 750ml is called as Full, 375 is Half and 180 is Quarter.
There is also Cutting, which is 90ml, which is not sold as such. But you will find people wanting to buy a quarter and share a cutting with anyone who would share the cost. Large which is 60ml and Small which is 30 ml is used in bars.


You also need to know that you would end up paying Rs. 5 to Rs. 30 per bottle above the MRP. These are not accounted and never you are going to get a payment receipt for any purchase made in TASMAC, which is a government organization.

Sabarimala Iyappan viradham (Fasting) do's and dont's


Sabarimala Iyappan viradham (Fasting) procedure 

Here is the link for 108 saranam for the daily pooja during the fasting period with FREE PDF download,

108 ஐயப்பன் சரண கோஷம் தமிழில் + இலவச PDF பதிவிறக்க,

An important read for all Kanni Swamy and for anyone who want any clarification on Sabarimala viradham.

This is my second year taking up the Sabarimala Viradham. Last year I just felt I need to go to Sabarimala. I realized it was my call. It was June end I guess. I had no idea what are the do's and dont's during the fasting period. I did not know how to go or where to go.

One of my friend and his dad go to Sabarimala year after year. I knew he will be a good source of information. I gave him a call and found they are starting their fasting in July and planning for the travel for August 18th, 2013. I only called for information, but the set-up was already ready for me to join. I was able to connect the time I felt I need to go to Sabarimala. If you are wondering how we can go in August. Sabarimala Iyappan temple will be open every month for the first 5 days of the Malayalam calendar. Here is the link which will be useful if you are planning a travel like us,


First we need to understand the essence of the Viratha kalam (Fasting period). Each viradham has a purpose to prepare yourself towards a destiny or a direction. (Here you can read about Shasti Viradham if you are interested) During Sabarimala viradham period we need to give up all the worldly pleasure. We need to detach from all good and bad, what we like and dont like. Take us away from everything around us and stay focused on Lord Iyappan. This will give us a new look in to our self and the outside world. All the do's and dont's are again towards this same goal if you can start to relate it. The Viratha kalam also prepares our mind and body for the long trek to Sabari mala.

Now let us move on to the do's and dont's during the viradha kalam (Fasting period). This is the compilation of all the resources I went through from the web and what I have heard from others.



Do's and Dont's

  1. You need to have a Guruswamy who can guide you during this Viradha kalam. It is not advisable to take up the viradham on your own as you need the wisdom of a guruswamy to take you through the fasting period and to take up your journey to Sabarimala.
  2. Your Viradham starts by wearing Tulasi mala or Rudraksha mala or a Spatika mala with Iyappan dollar in it. You also get dollar with lord Ganesha or Murugar on the back side, you can wear these dollars too. You can wear the mala at a temple, your guruswamy's house or at your house. The temple priest can wear you the mala or your guruswamy of your mother.
  3. Wear black color dress as it denotes that we have given up the colors in life. After we have taken up a few years of fasting we can also wear Blue and Safron color dresses, this is purely based on your preference and there is also a meaning behind those colors if you prefer. But black made more sense to me at least.
  4. Daily pooja to be performed in the morning (Before sun rise) and in the evening (After the sun set). Take a bath before the pooja time. It is said in many references not to use Soap or Shampoo during this period. There is also counter argument as these rules were set before people started using Soap and Shampoo. The goal is to remain clean. If you can avoid Soap and Shampoo well and good. Otherwise you can use it, dont feel you are breaking any rule here. Using perfume and deodorant should be avoided.
  5. For pooja chant 108 saranam to Iyappan, make a small offering, raisin or Kalkandu or any fruit or any other prasadham which you can cook. Make it simple and practical as you have to offer twice a day. Here is the link for 108 saranam in English., Here is the link for 108 ஐயப்பன் சரண கோஷம் தமிழில் you can also download the 108 ayyappan saranam as a PDF file and print it from that links.
  6. Visit a near by temple at least once a day.
  7.  You can eat to satisfy your hunger and not to fill your stomach. Have meals with rice only once a day, for the other time, have light tiffin items. Preferred to eat self cooked or home cooked food. Food has to be strictly vegetarian. If you can avoid garlic and onion, it is even better. For those who cannot have home cooked food, you can have in a clean and tidy place outside. All this is to prepare for the long trek once people use to take with self carried ration. This is also good for health.
  8. You must follow strict bramacharyam.
  9. Speak less as much as possible. Do not get in to any argument. Do not hurt anyone with word, thoughts or deed.
  10. You must sleep on the floor on a mat. You cannot use pillow for comfort. You can use a blanket if needed. All this must be used only during your fasting period. You must keep it away after you end your fasting period.
  11. Avoid attending marriages, new born ceremonies, death etc. You must be following a sanyasi's life and have to move away from worldly ceremonies. If you have to attend a death of your relatives, you need to remove the mala, leave it to lord Iyappan in your pooja room. When you are back, you need to take bath and have your mother or your guruswamy to wear the mala back.
  12. Always have scandal wood paste or Vibuthi or kunkumam on your forehead. It is a must to have all the time.
  13. You cannot shave or have a hair cut during the fasting period. If your profession deems you to be tidy, you can have a shave. Do not feel bad about it. You cannot also cut your finger nails during your fasting period. Make sure you keep your nails clean always. 
  14. You need to observe the fasting at least for 41 days before you take up the irumidi kattu. If you are not able to do the complete fasting, it is suggested you visit Sabarimala without the irumudi kattu. It is the respect you pay to Lord Iyappan.
  15. For any reason your profession does not let you be away from a birth and death situation,  you can take up the fasting without wearing the mala, but follow all the above rules. Before your irumudi kattu, you can wear the mala and proceed.
Here is an article on Irumudi Kattu - Palli kattu - Kattu nirai,
All this is based on my learning so far and from what I have heard and read. If I am wrong in any ways, please correct me. I will make any changed needed. I want to share a drop in this ocean. If I have helped someone with what I have shared, I will consider myself blessed.

Irumudi Kattu means two packages. The front pouch is meant for Lord Iyappan, this pouch contains the Ghee coconut (Nei thengai) and all the pooja items needed when we reach Sabari mala. The back pouch carries all the items we will need on the way for ourself. The front pouch cannot be opened until we reach Sabarimala, the back pouch can be opened on the way. The most important item carried in the irumudi kattu is the ghee coconut (Nei thengai). The ghee coconut symbolizes the devotee himself who is carrying the irumudi. It is said the coconut represents ones body and the ghee represents ones soul. You carry yourself to be offered to Iyappan and carry back what is gives back to you. That is  the reason you offer the ghee for Iyappan Abishekam and put the empty coconut in the burning fire. You can carry your ghee coconut and also of others from your family. They have to fill the coconut during the Irumudi kattu.

There is also another reason why people carry ghee in a coconut. It is said ghee is taken to offer to Iyappan and to keep it from spoiling we seal it in Coconut. These are the two meanings I have come across.

Irumudi as said before is two packs. It can be made of a single piece of cloth from which each side can be made as a carrying pouch by tying it. More often we use Irumudi bags that is readily available. This has two pouches from the same cloth with the opening facing each other. When you buy your Irumudi bag, also buy the coconut bags along with it if it is not sold along with the Irumudi bag. These are small cloth pouches which can be fastened using the rope that runs along its rim.

If your Irumudi Kattu is performed by a temple or by your guruswamt, please check with them on what items you need to get, as they will have most of this ready. Here is the complete list of items you will need for the Irumudi kattu along with why you need them:

Mun Mudi (Front pouch):


1. Coconut for Nei thengai (Ghee coconut): This has to scrapped and polished. One of the eye has to be cleared and also dig in to the pulp with a sharp object until you can have the water drained out. This has to be done few hours before the Irumudi kattu as the coconuts have to be dried before filling the ghee.

2. Ghee: For filling the Ghee coconut 

3. Rice: To be filled by the person carrying the Irumudi. While filling the rice, you also need to put the money that you are offering to Iyappan. After filling the rice, the ghee coconut is dropped in the bag.

4. Beetle leaves and Beetle nuts

5. Turmeric powder

6. Vibudhi (Sacred ash). This will be used to form a heap on which the camphor will be lit to open the ghee coconut. This Vibudhi will then be taken back home as prasadham.

7. Rose water (Paneer)

8. Sandal wood paste or tablets or powder

9. Honey (One small bottle)

What you do after opening the munmudi?

Mun Mudi can be opened only after the darshan. Mun Mudi has to be opened by a Guruswamy only. If you are going alone, ask for a Guruswamy to open it for you if possible. People will definitely help you. You empty the vibudhi in a plate. You then have to light the camphor. You need to have this camphor going till you end the pooja. Carry enough camphor along with you. You will need only one place for one group.

You then have to start breaking the nei thengai and empty the ghee in a container in which you will give it to the temple. You will then collect the coconut in a towel or a separate container. You need to throw this in Agnikundam, the fire that you will see next to the 18 steps.


Beetle leaves, Beetle nuts, Turmeric, Kungumam is for Malingapurathu amman. You will offer all that in the Malangipurathuaman temple.

Paneer you will see people slashing on each other. Which is accepted unless you dont bother much. In Malangapurathu amman temple you will also roll one coconut around the temple and leave it there and should not break it. First timers have to do this ritual. Others can do it if interested.


Pin Mudi (Rear pouch)


10. 2 coconuts: One has to be broken before climbing the 18 steps on the side of the steps itself. The next has to be broken while starting back from Sabari Mala. It marks the end of the visit and to head back home.

11. Rice (is also used to balance the weight between mun mudi and pin mudi)

12. Avul (Pressed rice)

13. Jaggery

14. Raisins (Dry grapes)

15. Agarbathi

16. Camphor

17. Kumkum

12. Kalkandu (Sugar tablets)

What you do after opening the Pin Mudi?

You empty the rice and money content. You will offer it to the respective hundial. Agarbathi, Kumkum and Aval are for Malangugapurathu amman. Camphor is for performing the Poojas.

You take a small quantity of rice and raisins back to you home with which you prepare and offer pongal as prasadham. 

You can step on the sacred 18 steps in Sabari mala only if you are carrying a Irumidi on your head. Irumudi has to be carried only if you have completed your 41 days of fasting. If you are not carrying a Irumudi, you can take a different steps that runs on the side to reach the shrine. You can still visit the shrine without the Irumudi Kattu. Here is a link that can shed some light on the fasting period,


Traditionally pin mudi was meant to carry eatables and other things we need for the journey.With change in  time and availability of things on our way, we are packing the pin mudi also with things we will need in Sabari mala alone. In the olden days people have to carry all their rations for days on their pin mudi.

Along with the above mentioned items also buy and keep 3 coconuts. One is for breaking outside your house when you start from home, the next is after reaching Kanni Mula ganapathy temple in Pamba. The last one again outside your house when you return back.

The entire trip has a spiritual meaning of leaving everything to Iyappan and taking back what he gives and sends us back. That is what we keep chanting Swamiye Saranam Iyappa. After leaving everything and living a Sanyasi life for the 41 days, we then take back what is important to us back in to our life and leave what we will not need depending on what we learn from the 41 days.

All that I have shared is what I have learn from various articles on the web, what I have heard and practiced myself. If there is any mistake, please point it to me, I will make any corrections needed. Swamiye Saranam Iyappa.




This one is well written and will take you through the journey as you read,

Reason for wearing Thunai malai during Sabari malai Ayyappan viradham


Why to wear Thunai malai

Here is the link for 108 saranam for the daily pooja during the fasting period with FREE PDF download,

Most of you out there will know why we wear Thunai malai during the Sabarimala viradha kalam (Fasting period). This is for those who are seeking this information.

We usually wear two malai when we start our fasting. The malai can be Thulasi malai or Rudrahsha malai or Spatika malai. You can wear a combination of these too. The reason we were two malai is because we need to have our mala around our neck for the entire viradha kalam (Fasting period). God forbids, if one mala is broken or comes off your neck, the other will be there to make your fasting to stay intact.

This is the reason we wear thunai malai.

You will also see people wearing only one mala, this is also allowed. In this case, there is no thunai malai.

Worst case, if your mala comes off your neck, chant "Swamiye Saram Iyappa" and put back the mala. If the mala is cut, hold the mala in tact, tie the two beads where it is cut using a thread from your cloth. You can mend it later. Do not feel bad about it. Leave it to Iyappan and continue your fasting.
