Please watch the video.
Since then I have visited Sabarimalai about 15 times, though not for Jothi .
However I have been seeing it on TV every year.
Jaya TV.-While Tiruvaabaranam was in the process of being adorned on the Lord, the Sannidhi seemed to be open.
-Some pilgrims(not police/volunteers) were found to be not in Sabarimala attire.Couple of them were wearing white shirts.
-Garudan hovering over the Tiruvaabarana procession was missing.
-Normally the Jothi appears between 18-43 abd 18-47.
-This year it was at 19-11(give or take a couple of minutes)
-Finally the jothi.It normallyappears once the Deepaaradanai is completed for the Lord and a celestial light floats and skims beneath the Star thrice.
This year, the light appeared to be a circular blob,it did not skim and fade.
It appeared only twice and after the first sighting it disappeared immediately and reappeared .
I am pained.
Was there any short coming in the performance of Rituals.?
Will some body who has witnessed in the Jothi in 2011 in person inform me on this?
* I will write on Makara Jothi , a miraculous phenomenon in detail for those who may not know about it(especially foreign readers)
