Beyond Ordinary

I’m not responding much to any of your comments lately, but remember that I do read them and get encouraged.  It takes days to write and finish up an article sometimes, there is too many things in what you’re reading for a mere few minutes.  This blog is also 100% ad free, it’s not for any personal profit. But the more you share, more people will help the charity club. Be my Macha:)

watch?v=pcfGRaXhJvQI’ve witnessed and participated in numerous rituals ever since I was as young as 13. I used to go to Kali temples inside the jungles and cemetery to watch the rituals and exorcism being performed there. My father used to beat me up for going to this type of ‘gory’ temples. Nevertheless, my fascination towards exotic temples had never died down. Combined with the love for Urumee music, you can say I’m very much a staunch follower of exotic temples because Urumee is ‘played only; in this type of temples.
I’ve ridiculed many rituals in the past, writing about how stupid Indians can be to do some of the things; for an example rubbing a pigs ass thinking it will bring them luck. Or drinking goats’ blood thinking it is Goddess Kali who’s sucking on them.
I was invited by Bro Thiru to witness something out of ordinary, where a guy named Kali Kovil Raja will allegedly ‘pour’ hot burning oil onto himself, in an ultimate act of devotion. Thinking here comes another ‘dumb’ ritual, I went to the temple annual celebration last Sunday.
The location? Taman Kem, Port Klang; one of the most notorious ghetto Indian area known for drugs and fights. By the time I was there, Indians machas had already throng in thousands, lining up the streets with their usual beers and cigarettes, ‘living’ up to the occasion. But this is one place you better not warn them for drinking for temple festivals, or you might get your eye picked out.
It was a mini-Thaipusam celebration. The temple is owned by ‘Arul Tharum Urumee’ group, the first and most respected Urumee group in Malaysia, and if I’m not mistaken I purchased their first cassette when I was 14. That was 12 years back. From a Muniandy temple nearby, young devotees (Indian machas) hooked with milk pots, fruits and kavadis, made their way onto the Kali temple.
I’m strong advocate against animal sacrificing in temples. And almost all the Kali temples I’ve been perform animal sacrificing. I was expecting the same here, but to my suprise, they were actually giving vegetarian food. This immediately changed my perception towards this temple, and I saw none of the temple committees was actually in ‘trance’ and drinking beer. This is indeed out of ordinary.
This man, Kali Kovil Raja is no ordinary man. He had ‘trained’ under Aghori in India and is more like a local cult leader to the people here; in one of the most notorious area in Selangor. He looks fierce, but he has a large following in the community here.
The highlight of the whole event was about to come. Around 3 pm, the ritual started. First, a large cooking wok was placed. On all 4 corners, a ‘presentation’ was given to Hindu warrior Gods, or so I believe. It consisted of some rice, a beer, and some other items, placed on top of a banana leaf. Then Kali Kovil Raja, started the ‘pooja’.
Once all four corners were completed, the cooking wok was ignited. According to Bro Thiru, the wok ingredients include cooking oil, and multiple types of herbs. I even saw different of flowers inside the mixture. As time goes by, the oil began to boil, smoking up in the air. The crowd began to squeeze in and I was having a hard time trying to take pictures or videos.
And then Mr. Raja began the ceremony. He started off by standing in front of the wok, in one leg. This is definitely a position of Goddess Kali, I can safely say.  When the time was right and the oil was literally boiling in an unimaginable temperature, he took a few sticks of Neem tree leaves on both hands, AND TO MY HORROR, chucked it inside the hot burning oil and started blasting it on top of his body. A few drops literally flew my way and got into my head and hands, and it was freaking hot! I was gaping with awe looking at this extraordinary ritual, and with the sound of Urumee , the man literally circles around the wok and blast more and more oil onto his body. Here I’m couldn’t even stand a few drops of that hot burning oil, and this guy is actually ‘bathing’ himself with it.
Once the oil inside the wok dries out, more and more pails of oil is poured onto the wok. The chants of ‘Om Sakthi’ spurs the man on, and he goes on a spree of bathing himself with the oil.
I tried explaining so many things by science, and sometimes I do them myself to show you how it works. But this is DEFINITELY, not something I would ever try out. This man, Kali Kovil Raja, had personally proved to me that some things are not meant to be explained by science. He had crossed beyond the physical human limits.
Spiritualism practiced at the highest level will bring extraordinary result, as such that I witnessed here.

    Excellent write-up, the videos are pretty much providential. Just as I think it is, spiritualism is entirely wide and the practices vary in accordance to the effects you’d like to bring about. So to yield such a result, the man would’ve probably practiced something rather immense, beyond his comprehension, be it good or evil. Not assuming he would’ve learnt something in the context of evil, it’s just possible since divination have many times lead to necromancy. Whichever way it’s apt to be explained for, these sort of things would always remain mysterious as it’s something greater than our knowledge, capabilities and prospects. And to unveil the mystery would probably consume ages, even that to not be assured as you might just dwell into the mystery. I’d say “trance” is for real but to consider whether it really is “trance” or something else that could be explained scientifically, might as well take in relevant other factors. For instance, certain things in spiritualism that only some would know. Well whatever it is, it’s just plain interesting that the curiosity is washing all over me. Damn.

    In spiritualism, i understand that it is possible, especially when a person reaches some particular levels in meditations/yoga.. Even materializing something as solid as a mini linggam is possible in spiritualism, but i suppose true spiritualism is not about showing these abilities off to people for any reason, spiritualism is about realizing the purpose of our own existence and its connection with a literally super-massive energy that manifested/expanded and become all the neutrons, electrons, protons, atoms, molecules, matter, anti-matter, gravity etc in this universe,the same super-massive and unexplainable big energy that we also call “God” in earth language. Andatthil iruppathu pindatthilum irukindradhu, which means – the same energy that is out there, is also within us, so if a person carefully and properly practices certain exercise, it is possible to do what the guy in the videos perform,i personally believe science has got a very close connection with religion especially ours la bro. Most of our practices are purely scientific…We just need to break the magician’s code to understand these stuffs.

    Nevertheless, its a good article bro..been following your articles for quite some time now.

    and also i would like to sincerely contribute if you are planning for any annathaanam or charity for the poor and needy this coming deepavali, please let me know bro durai.

    Thx

    Hinduism is the oldest faith on the planet,its scriptures are also the oldest.The above acts could be consider as rituals,its part of Hinduism.Animal sacrifice are part of Hinduism.Why kill an animal?That animal attains Mokshah or liberation,all sacrifice are done in front of the Gods.That animal souls is free from birth and death,if that animal goes through its normal process,it might take many-many lives to attain liberation.Servant to Maha Durga.

    Sai baba movements are part of Hinduism which it helps many souls to attain their desired destination afterlife.The movement do help many Indians whom needs help.Swamiji thanks all those souls but remember that Sai Baba is not “God incarnation” but a famous impostor.God incarnation souls are Lord Ragenvendran,Lord Shankaracharyar,Lord Chaithanya mahaprabu and others whom are only known to Hindu swamis like me.Every God incarnation souls do reveal a secret known only to Hindu swamis but the imposter sai baba did not reveal any secrets to mankind.Sai baba and His followers proclaimed his an incarnation of god.Sai baba himself dont know there are secrets which one has to reveal to be consider as god incarnation.What are those secrets?he!he!Django fires silver bullets only.Mother these fools dont know nothing but we will send them to their desired destination which Durga souls need not attain there as life over there ends unlike Maha Durga’s world ,one soul need not have to return anymore,the cycle ends for thy soul.Servant to Maha Durga.Mokshah!Mokshah!Mokshah.

    Guys… oil bathing is not only in hinduism but also practiced in different cultures and religions. As i have personally witnessed this being done by a silat master in Malaysia. He didn’t use the neem stick instead used his own hand to pour the boiling oil onto his body. With special meditation techniques and control of our mind, unusual things can be done. But it need a lot of practice. There are different type of yoga explained in Hindu scriptures. I’m not sure on the benefit and not telling my view is ultimately the truth but just sharing my experience… cheers!

    practising any sadhana will bear its results. and so too says patanjali in the yoga sutras.
    controlling sense perception and the panca bhootams (5 elements) will come after severe penance in the various yogas.
    these are all ritualistic practices….

    once paramahamsa yogananda was criticised for practising kriya yoga without ‘anubhava’- ‘love for god’..
    now that is spiritualism

    Durai,
    Was there a specific reason for Mr Raja to perform this action ? How often he does this in that Temple ? What happened at the end of the ceremony ?

    @Bro, I have no idea, but it’s a test of strength in terms of spirituality.How often is once a year during the temple annual festival, at the end of the ceremony they ended it up with some normal poojas.

    i watched this when i was there for few years ago…really interesting..i heard bout the trance ritual at nite bt choosed nt to go…
    i’ve seen a old indian man in kluang doing amazing things also..he walk on fire (theemithi)..i know it sounds normal, bt the point is..before he set his foot on fire..he look up the sky..n shout ” amma..hope my action will eased ur anger on those ppl which u made them suffer for their sin” see..this is the thing that touched me..i saw him refused to step out from the fire with so many of guys trying to lure him out..he said ” a while more a while more” perhaps..the action they r taking wil never be accepted by god..but the sincerity they have to help those who r suffering is facinating..
