Nada can't be closed even if women enter; Purification puja impossible: Tantri
Sabarimala: Sabarimala tantri Kandararu Rajeevaru has said that even if women enter the Sabarimala temple, ‘nada’ can’t be closed. Such rumours are spreading, but that’s not true. Closing nada also will be a violation of customs, he added.
Conducting ‘sudhikriya’ (purification ritual) is also not possible if they keep on arriving. Monthly pujas have to be held accordingly. The customs of the temple have to be observed. I hope women will visit Sabarimala only according to the customs, he said.
The other day, former Devaswom Board President Prayar Gopalakrishnan had said that he wouldn’t visit Sabarimala if a single woman visits the temple. There are many devotees who think in this line, said tantri.
