‘Parakotti Pattu’ done to ward off ‘Sanidosham’

Sannidhanam: ‘Parakotti Pattu’ is one among the age-old rituals that has been practiced over the years at Sabarimala. This devotional percussion is done to keep away various doshams including the ‘Sani Dosham’ and has a legend attached to it. During the time of Palazhi Madhanam, Sani’s curse befell on Lord Vishnu. To protect him, Lord Siva and Parvathi took the form of ‘Velan’ and ‘Vedathi’ and sang remedial songs. The 14-members of this Velan dynasty from Pathanamthitta are following the practice here and they say more devotees are following now a day the ritual here.
