TRIPRAYAR - KOOTU VAZHIVADU

Offering kootu-enacting certain episodes by the expert artists in separate halls in the temple premises itself is indeed an odd seva,or sampradaya, or called vazhivadu in Kerala. It is a rarity and no where found in India. The temple prescribed specific fee for enactment, when devotees approach for redemption of this queer vow. Though there seems some novelty in this, it is going on in Tripayar temple for ages now. The redemption is setting the afflicted free from worries besides showering bliss. The adored too is not only accepting this, but is seeing unseen-watching invisibily, and demanding when it is disregarded or deferred. Does this not prove that traditions established have divine sanction and the builders of such traditions are to be applauded for their insight and dedication.

The Srirama temple at Tripnayar has included in the list of sevas the kootu vazhivadu-offering pantomime to the deity. and the intending sevarthi's are fulfilling their rows on payment of the prescribed fee. If on certain situations, when it is stopped abruptly, the invisible spectator chastising the defaulters see the vow redeemed timely and duly. Needless to prolong that the sevarathi starts reaping bliss thence onwards.
