Tantric Temples in Kerala

Tantric Temples in Kerala

Discussion Thread from Rudraksha Beads Societies Club (RBSC) in January 2008


Namaste Narasimhaye & Surya,

Adding my two pence with reference to the subject.
Nikhil has very well explained the Tantra tradition
behind most of the temples in Kerala. From my personal
experience the wordings in the link

which says

""When a person enters into such a temple he is
actually entering in to this divine energy field. His
energy body and chakras will receive and absorb the
power and energy coming out from the deity in the
temple. Practically he takes a bath in the energy of
the deity. This will clean the energy body / aura of
the devotee and will also give similar vibration (that
of the diety) to the chakras of the devotee. This
vibrations can expel deceased energy and can charge
the aura with positive divine energy""

to be very true.

The energy levels can be felt very easily by anyone
visiting the temples (especially the Devi temples)
provided you maintain solitude for a few minutes
accompanied with calm and deep breathing.

It is recommended by elders to have a bath in the
temple tank or pond before having Darshan of the deity
while wearing a single piece of clothing. Also while
darshan the person has to be standing not directly in
front of the deity but at an angle( either on the
right or the left side of the deity ) as the charged
energy from the deity flows out in serpentine form and
assimilates with the devotees aura and thereby
starting the process of cleansing.

Seeing the discussion on temples of Kerala, I thought
I'd add my bit here.

The structural construction rules as well as other
rules regarding pooja, procedures to be folowed etc
followed my most temples in Kerala have been laid out
by none other than PARASHURAMA. Lord Vishnu's avatar
before Shri Ram.

As the legend, goes, PARASHURAMA created Kerala by
reclaiming land from the sea, by throwing his axe.
Then he brought Bhramins from various parts of the
country and advised them to take care of the land and
gave them strict instructions on the procedures of

These are very unique to Kerala Bhramins.. which again
proves the PARASHURAMA story. Also you may note that
the typical SHAIVA-VISHNAVA divide is absolutely
absent in Kerala. You will find Shiva, Vishnu and
Shakti Temples all over the place, and many times you
will find that both Shiva and Vishnu dieties are
installed in the same temples and people pray before
both with same respect.




Namaskar Surya, I'm not familiar with Kerala but please have a look
at these links:

The architectural style of the temples in Kerala is different from
the other areas in India. The geographical features of the place
largely determine the temple style of a region. Kerala has rich
forest cover together with good monsoon showers thus resulting in
distinctive structures of the temples. The roofs of the temples are
steep and needlelike covered with copper sheets. The roofs of the
temples of Kerala are similar to the temples of the Himalayan regions
and the East Asia . 


A form of Lord Siva called Vaidyanathan is also considered as a
healer. A number of people in Kerala who are suffering from Epilepsy
are getting miraculous cure by staying 12 days in the famous Siva
temple in Ettumanoor, Kottayam (dist) .

You can see hundreds of people who are getting out of mental diseases
like psychic attacks and possession by simply staying at
Chottanikkara Devi temple in Eranakulam Dist, without consuming
medicine or any other treatment.

Do you know how this happen?

Hindu temples in Kerala State ( India) are constructed in a special
way. Our temples are not prayer halls or meditation centers, but are
scientifically created energy centers.

Hindu temples in Kerala are built according to Thatchu Sastra - the
ancient Indian science of construction- and according to the Tantra
Sastra - Science of Tantra and Rituals-. The temple buildings are
constructed according to perfect mathematical equations. The size,
shape and other technical aspects of these will vary according to the
deities. After the completion of construction a deity will be placed
in these temples. The Thanthry (chief priest of Hindu temple) will
charge the deity with adequate energy& power by raising/ awakening
his Kundalini energy by following weeks of secret and elaborate
Tantric practices. Continues charging ( ie giving energy to the
diety ) of these deities will be performed by the priests 5 to 7
times a day by chanting mantras and also by performing Tantric
rituals -- Normally from 4 AM in the morning to 8.30PM evening--
every day. All these will keep the deity in the temple in a very
power full state.


Kottayam - The Land of Temples:

Temples there include Chirkkadavu Mahadeva Temple, Ettumanoor
Mahadeva Temple, Vaikom Mahadeva Temple, Thirunakkara Mahadeva
Temple, Kumaranelloor Devi Temple, Kiliroo Kathyani Temple and a
whole list of temples.


Jai Maa

Very good information provided about hindu temples of India. There are very famous temples in south India that people are not aware of. This attempt will boot our culture and religion and help the sacred spirits go up.
