Thanks for your below e-mail. It is indeed appreciable that efforts are on to build Shree Ayyappa Temple in NY.
May I request you to kindly make all attempts through your wide network, to spread awareness about the strict rules to be followed for visiting this temple?
I am a regular pilgrim to Sabarimala and these days, I have been observing many things happening there, which a real Ayyappa devotee cannot accept. In order to maintain the sanctity, it is necessary that all the devotees strictly abide by the rules set by our ancestors.
I am afraid, it is becoming another picnic spot?!!
