NAIVEDYAM FIRST AND POOJA NEXT

Now a little bit of background is expedient for full comprehension. Temple traditions are many and varied. They are not uniform, nor do they change with the march of time. Most of them are inducted along with the consecration of archamurtis by spiritual men of great fame. Some are by godmen, who visit and worship the deities with special conventional practices. Acharyas and priests introduce a few to effecting localisation of the divinities, and making the temples more popular, and deities adorable. Celebrated theists who attain Sayujyaprapti - merging with gods also, leave behind a few practices which become the much hallowed traditions in course of time. Whoever might be the person, or whatever the condition, or whenever commenced, they exert great impact on the adorers and change their outlook; for they are imbued with divinity. The mysticism, that embodies them impel instant veneration. That mysticism as a matter of fact lives in them, nay lives by them. Some of them are very queer and so mystify any reasoning, but viewed in the light of the events from which they emerged they become acceptable and adorable, even though they are contrary to the acceptable conventions. Their queerness, in course of time becomes the principal reason for their attraction and visitation. And forms a unique feature exercising eternal fascination, for regular visits and devout prayers. Among many such traditions observed, the Trichambaram Krishna temple has a few that are really exciting and fantastic.
