Why Women are not allowed in Sabarimala Temple - Is it based on body impurity and menstruation?  Here is an interview

Summary:  Five Levels of Uni5 Understanding.

1.Question: what about the energy vibrations of the temple, they may not be suitable for women, the question is : if one priest says vibrations can hurt women whereas another says they won't, who decides? Shouldn't it be for women to decide. Else we are imposing our own understanding of energy on entire womenhood.

Answer: What if pregnant women went to supreme court of India asking pregnant nurse should be allowed to handle x-ray machine and pregnant women to handle radioactive materials in atomic research center?. It is not about women discriminated at work place, their safety for several generations (Epigenetics) is taken care.

2.Lord Ayappa doesn't discriminate against women, his self appointed spokespersons do. Otherwise women are allowed even in Hanuman temple who is a Bal Brahmachari. He is Lord, how can his Brahmacharya be affected?

Answer: X-Ray machines doesnt get affected  by pregnant women. it is the safety for the pregnant women they are prevented into rooms operating xray machines and radioactive elements. However a pregnant lady is allowed to handle light, which is electromagnetic radiation like light. However, light radiations do not penetrate the body as much as the gamma and  xrays. Same way all temples are "like" emitting electromagnetic radiations in differeing intensentities and so temples have different rules in empty.

3.Question:  Whether pregnant or not pregnant, male or female all the bodies are affected by radiations. Same way wont men also be affected in Sabarimala temple?  

Answer: Yes and No.  If a man does not do the 41 days vratha he is not shielded from the nagative effects. However if he does do the 41 days of vratha of celebacy, he will be affected by going to temple. 

5. In men. when sperm gets out of testis, it is ejaculation.....for creation .....However any man can control it by controlling the mind. For women, Egg is released  to uterus like ejaculation for creation mode.  However, the woman cannot control it, it is involuntary.

It is nothing wrong about this for women (not impurity), but that is how the physiology is about. Therefore they cannot enter Temple, which is for liberating from the creation mode. So woman entering into the  temple will divert the Energy for liberation into energy for Creation.

Menstrual Cycle explained in terms of Voluntary and Involuntary creation mode

When one voluntarily and involuntarily takes part to become many from one, is the creation mode.

The creation mode does not mean an arbitrary creation mode. But in actuality, creation mode is backed by the present existing medical science explanation. The menstruation cycle is a commonly medically accepted phenomenon in the female physiology. The menstrual cycle prepares her body for pregnancy each month. It is the basis of the creation mode.

Menstrual cycle explained

Day 1 starts with the first day of your period. This occurs after hormone level drops at the end of the previous cycle, signaling blood and tissues lining the uterus (womb) to break down and shed from the body. Bleeding lasts about 5 days.

Usually by Day 7, bleeding has stopped. Leading up to this time, hormones cause fluid-filled pockets called follicles to develop on the ovaries. Each follicle contains an egg.

Between Day 7 and 14, one follicle will continue to develop and reach maturity. The lining of the uterus starts to thicken, waiting for a fertilized egg to implant there. The lining is rich in blood and nutrients.

Around Day 14 (in a 28-day cycle), hormones cause the mature follicle to burst and release an egg from the ovary, a process called ovulation.

Over the next few days, the egg travels down the fallopian tube towards the uterus. If a sperm unites with the egg here, the fertilized egg will continue down the fallopian tube and attach to the lining of the uterus.

If the egg is not fertilized, hormone levels will drop around Day 25. This signals the next menstrual cycle to begin. The egg will break apart and be shed with the next period.

(Explained by the Office on Women’s Health, US Department of Health and Human Services)

http://www.womenshealth.gov/pregnancy/before-you-get-pregnant/menstrual-cycle.html (last visited May 4, 2016)

This explains how a female physiology is basically continuously preparing for the pregnancy (creation) to happen.
In conclusion, this entire process is happening by itself within the physiology of a woman, the way digestion is happening to all of us (involuntary processes). A woman cannot prevent an egg to be released for fertilization from the ovary, hence, this is what is meant by involuntary creation mode.

Men are also continuously producing sperm, which is required for the fertilization of an egg. However, in order for creation to happen, the sperm has to leave the male physiology. At will they may or may not attend the creation mode, which means that the sperm will not be released from the body by itself. That is meant by voluntary creation mode.

Summary:  In men. when sperm gets out of testis, it is ejaculation.....for creation .....However any man can control it by controlling the mind. For women, Egg is released  to uterus like ejaculation for creation mode.  However, the woman cannot control it, it is involuntary.

It is nothing wrong about this for women (not impurity), but that is how the physiology is about. Therefore they cannot enter Temple, which is for liberating from the creation mode. So woman entering into the  temple will divert the Energy for liberation into energy for Creation.

Mandala Vratam in terms of non-creation mode (from many to become one)


The most important point to bring into our awareness is that the Mandala Vratam of 41 days is compulsory in order to do the Sabarimala pilgrimage, irrespective of gender.

How does the vrata start? The Guru initiates the vratam of the devotee by putting a Tulsi or a Rudraksha mala. After this ceremony, the male pilgrim and the female pilgrim (aged 1-10 and after 50) are addressed as Ayyapan/Swamy until their completion of the pilgrimage. Why do they address everybody by only one name?
Because of our identification with body awareness, we perceive different names and forms instead of the "One" reality, Brahman or Consciousness.  To give up this non-duality of various names and forms, the devotee addresses everyone as "Swami Ayyappa". In addition, in the entire vratam the devotee never uses the words "I" or "You". On the contrary, s/he addresses himself as Ayyappa and others as Ayyappa. Thus he identifies all names and forms as One, Ayyappa, One Consciousness, which is pure Advaita (non-duality). Therefore, s/he attempts to channelize his energy from many to one, which is an attempt not to be in the creation mode.  

What is the purpose of putting the rosary? The wearing of the rosary is symbolic that the pilgrim has to take a severe one pointed penance to identify her-/himself with the Supreme Truth. What is the supreme truth? The supreme truth proclaimed at Sabarimala is “Tat Tvam Asi” (You are That Supreme Truth) represented by the form of Lord Ayyappa. In essence, this again brings one’s awareness on the reality that s/he has to aspire to become one from many (not in creation mode).

The devotees will wear only black colored clothes.

During the 41 day vrata, one weakens his/her sense of identity in relation to anything other than that one supreme truth, which is the objective of the vrata. It includes

1)   Abstinence of food (fasting),

2) Abstinence of tasty food,

3) S/he shall strictly follow brahmacharya (celibate), refrain from sex, thinking of sex, develop passion against all wo/men including her/his husband/ wife, and treat all wo/men as one supreme reality, who is symbolized by Ayyappa Swami. As a result the pilgrim only sees one truth, which is Ayyappa Swami, in both genders. This is a very clear evidence of non-creation mode.

4)  Abstinence from an addictive (favorite or sensually entertaining) activity and all vices like alcohol, tobacco, chewing betel leaves and non-vegetarian food is required.

5)  Abstinence from talking, rather preferring to be silent.

In essence, the pilgrim has to totally focus and has to put her/his full awareness in one and only one direction towards the supreme truth, which is represented by Lord Ayyappa. S/he does that on body, mind and intellectual level by continuously chanting Saranam Ayyappa and remembering only about Ayyappa. S/he shall totally surrender her-/himself to one and only one Lord Ayyappa. This is a clear evidence that this entire pilgrimage is designed to fulfill only one purpose, which is to gain moksha. In conclusion, the pilgrim withdraws her-/himself from the entire multiple expressions of existence (from many) and only focusses on becoming one with the supreme truth. Hence, anybody who is in creation mode is not allowed to enter the Sabarimala temple, irrespective of their gender.

Another important issue is, whether the central tenet of any faith can be challenged/ damaged in the name of gender equality before law? One has to understand that the Sabarimala pilgrimage is not just a custom or usage, but it is based on the ultimate goal (central tenet) of Sanatan Dharma (Hindu Dharma), which is moksha. In order to answer this challenge, one has to apply the test whether a particular custom or practice is central tenet of a faith or peripheral to it and as such dispensable without impairing the freedom of the belief. In the Sabarimala case, the objective of the pilgrimage is to gain moksha, which is the most essential goal of every Hindu and it should not be altered on the ground of gender equality. In essence, the attempt to influence the custom and usages of this pilgrimage without understanding the real and ultimate objective of it is a direct interference on the freedom of belief.

Significant scientific natural patterns which are directly connected to ultimate objective of the Sabarimala temple


The physics of the twentieth century has gone deeply into the molecular, atomic, and subatomic levels of creation. The most important point to note is that the one unified field, through symmetry breaking, sequentially gives rise to the diversified structure of creation (one becomes many) and vice versa. It is a well-accepted phenomenon in the natural science of creation.

The sequential order from molecules to the super-unification is as follows:

-         Molecules, composed of electrically clumped atoms, have a size of about 10-7 cm.

-         Atoms, composed of electrons electrically bound to a nucleus, have a size of about 10-8 cm.

-         Nuclei, composed of strongly bound nucleons (protons, neutrons), have a size of about 10-12cm.

-         Nucleons, composed of three quarks, have a size of about 10-13cm.

-         Electroweak unification, uniting the weak and electromagnetic forces, occurs at 10-16cm.

-         Grand unification, uniting the strong and electroweak forces, occurs at      10-29cm.

-         Super-unification, uniting all forces and particles, occurs at 10-33 cm—the Planck scale.


The cell division is a basic biological phenomenon, which shows how a single cell becomes many by dividing itself continuously. Life starts as a single cell: a fertilized egg containing genes (located on DNA), half from the mother, and half from the father. The entire DNA is copied before the division of the cell. Consequently, each cell in the body contains the complete DNA. This means that each cell in a higher organism tends to be only a specialization of the basic cell that could originally do everything. The functionality of each cell depends on the activated genes (either switched on or off based on its task). The whole body is made up of about a 30 trillion cells. In simple words, a single cell becomes 30 trillion cells; from one to many. These 30 trillion cells organize themselves for specialized tasks, containing the same DNA, forming one organism, the human body; many becoming one.



The same pattern, from one to many and many to one, also exists as the most underlying principle of Veda. The Central Council of Indian Medicine accepts Ayurveda as a science. Ayurveda is an Upaveda of Atharva or Rigveda. Shrusti karma nirupan (evolution of the cosmos) is described vividly in various scriptures from the Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas. Of these scriptures, the Darshan Shastras or the six systems of philosophy has specifically elaborated on the process. Ayurveda has inferred from all the available scriptures and has incorporated the most logical description predominantly based upon the Sankya Darshan, which is one to many and many to one.

Ayurveda diagnoses a person by diagnosing the Dosha combination (seven possible combinations of the three Doshas: Vata, Pitta and Kapha). The three Doshas come from the Pancha Bhutas (Akash, Vayu, Agni, Apas, Prthvi), and Pancha Bhutas come from Trigunas (Satva, Rajas, Tamas) and Trigunas come from Purush Prakriti, and ultimately from Purusha. The exclusive genotype in each human physiology is called Prakriti. This genotype (or DNA) has been derived from the parents, who received their genotype from their parents and so on. So that it can be traced back to the ultimate omnipresent genotype of Purusha Prakriti. Therefore, it is evident that Vedas follow this scientifically verifiable principle deriving from one to many and many to one.

How do these scientific findings relate to the Sabarimala Temple?

Sabarimala Temple is a Vedic temple. As has been elaborated above, it follows the entire science and technology of Veda and Vedic knowledge. It is important to note, that Vedic knowledge is not a religion in its generic sense, but it is a holistic understanding of the entire creation from one to many and many to one, hence it is a holistic science. It encompasses a universal pattern of all patterns of natural sciences, which can be found on the macro and micro level (“yatha pinde tatha brahmande”). Veda and Vedic literature is a complete knowledge, it is a total knowledge.

Sabarimala temple strictly follows the Vedic understanding and rituals. Among temples, it is a special institution, which focusses categorically on the natural aspect of becoming from many to one. Because of that, 41 days of Vrata is an essential aspect of Sabarimala pilgrimage, in which one tries to become one from many on all levels including Pancha Bhutas, Trigunas and Purusha Prikriti (body, mind, intellect, and Atma) of existence as per Vedic understanding. As it is understood earlier, that these terms are not arbitrary, but hold a strong baring of scientific explanation in Ayurveda, Ashtanga Yoga etc.


Ask Questions/doubts/comments in the discussion forum.

First part

V: Dr. Pradheep is a PhD in cancer biology and now working as a biotechnology scientist in the US. Another contribution is that he developed the Uni5 energy pattern based concept and education. He has given international talks on this energy pattern for the past 18 years.
I have also come across about your connection with Shabrimala. May I ask you for how many years have you been going to Shabrimala?

For the past 35 years I went almost every year.

Taking all this into account I would like to ask you a question about the recent issue of Shabrimala. In the name of religion don’t you see this as a discrimination that women are not allowed to go to Shabrimala?

As a scientist, I am trained to look at things objectively, without any prior bias. In order to answer and understand this whole situation, I would look at it from a more holistic point of view.

V: What do you mean by a holistic point of view?

Holistic means that seeing and understanding a phenomenon from all the possible angles.

I am going to explain it from three levels of the way we look at things. We look everything from a physical then an emotional and an organized structural or intelligence view.

V: Then, do you think that there is a discrimination on the physical or body level?

It appears to be a discrimination at the level of the physical body.

But there exist a difference between male and female body from body organs to core cells and its x and y chromosome.

V: Do you mean that women have a different and impure body?

More than the physical, the purity of mind is very important.

V: Does it mean that women are impure at the level of mind and men are pure?

From mind level –man and woman are equal and impure at the same time.

V: If male are as impure at the level of mind as women, then men should also not go!?

Ideally then men also should not go.
That is why they have to go through the 41 days vratha, which is to purify the mind of the pilgrim.

V: What do you mean by purity?

Everything is considered as pure, which has only one substance in it, such as pure gold or ghee.
Vedic tradition talks about purity of one thought, one goal, Moksha.
Sabarimala is a temple about Mosha.
Swamiaye kandaal Moksha kittum is chanted by the pilgrim.

Men carry a token of that goal orientedness in form of the irumdi on their head.

V: Do you think women cannot do that 41 day vritta and carry that irumuddhi? Is it very heavy? Is that your measure of purity needed to step into Shabrimala?

Yes, you are right. We can measure the age of female body and restrict the entry. Men can be restricted the entry if they do not carry the irimuddhi.

V: This is totally arbitrary and manmade rules. Whatever you say, in the eyes of God there is no discrimination. But why is this temple preventing women to enter and to worship God?

Women have every right to worship.

In order to understand this issue, one has to understand that there are two ways of worship of God:
Agama and Tantric

V: What is Agama and Tantric?

Agama means worshiping God without any conditions, just pure love for God. Agama literally means ‘grammar’. To speak a language without mistakes, one should use correct grammar. Similarly, to lead a life without making mistakes one should ideally Agama mode of worship.

The second way is Tantra or Vedic Temple Technology.

V: What do you mean by temple technology? What has a temple to do with technology?

From the Vedic Temple Technology perspective, temple is a place where the subtle energy is generated and preserved. To do that, the priests and temple guardians have to follow strict rules and procedures. For example, which rituals should be done at what exact times and they have to strictly keep the purity on the physical level. They have to take shower every hour before entering the sanktorium.
All these rules are based on scientific reasons, it is not arbitrary.

V: Ok, I understand all this technology, but what does that have to do with women? Why is this technology discriminating women? What is wrong with women from the energy perspective of this technology?

There is nothing wrong in women’s energy. But we have to understand that the woman’s physiology is designed to channelize energy for creation. Creation means, when one becomes many.
Whereas, ideally men’s physiology is designed for moksha, which means to liberate from the creative cycle of birth and death, this also means to become only one.

I will give you an analogy. Let’s say, there are two devices: a heating stove and a refrigerator. They both use the same electrical energy. But, a heating stove produces heat, on the other hand a refrigerator cools things. It is the same energy, but used for opposite tasks.
In essence, Stove will never be able to cool
Refrigerator never be able to heat
Does that mean that a refrigerator is better than a stove? Or a stove better than a refrigerator? If you want to heat up something, a stove is better and you will use it. If you want to cool something, then naturally a refrigerator is the preferred choice. It is not a discrimination, their design is like that!

We need both! Equality of both is in the energy.

V: So how does this connect to Shabrimala?
One has to understand that Shabrimala Ayyappa is for Moksha only. Which means no more creation, but the liberation from the cycle of birth and death.

Hence, if the temple energy of Shabrimala will be channelized for creation, it will be contradictory to the very purpose of the Shabrimala temple.
Consequently, the energy channelization is different, because of the different nature of female physiology.

One has to understand, that the existence of a temple is not by chance or arbitrary. This is our treasure of Indian spiritual tradition.

V: In other words, you are saying that women are not allowed, because they have a different energy channelization, which is contradictory to the purpose of Shabrimala and not because my body is impure!

You are right! Shiva and Shakti are one. Only there are different devices for the channelization of the same energy. In fact, the Goshana of Ayyapa is “Tatvam Asi”, which means that “you and I are one”.

Also, before women reach puberty and after the meno pause they are allowed, because then they are not in the mode of creation anymore. That is the logic for the Shabrimala temple, which is generating the energy for Moksha.

Different physiology of male and female are for achieving different results. I don’t see it as a discrimination, but it is the purnatva, the completeness of Sanatan Dharma, that caters both, the need of creation as well as the liberation at the same time.

V: Thank you very much for this deep and holistic explanation. I am really surprised that there is so much misunderstanding and misinterpretation about this issue. I would like to ask you many more questions in this regard in our second part of this interview.

Second part

V: In a way you are saying that the female physiology is not meant for moksha, which means liberation from the cycle of birth and death, because it supports further creation, which means it leads to the process of life and death. Is that right?

Yes, you are right! This is why women are not allowed at the Shabrimala temple when they are in a period of their life, where their physiology supports the creative process, which starts when they reach puberty and ends after their meno pause. Before and after this period, they are not channelizing the energy for creation, with which they should not enter Sabarimala.

V: But I don’t understand one point. There are very sincere female spiritual aspirants, whose goal in life is only moksha. They are not getting involved in the creation process. They lead a pure life and to keep their mind pure and goal oriented from the Vedic perspective. All this in order to attain Moksha. Do you think that only because their body would support creation, but on all other levels they only have this one goal, which is Moksha, they cannot have darshan of Ayyappa Swami at Shabrimala?

In Shabrimala, Ayyappa Swami is for or symbolizes Moksha. However, there are more than 400 temples of Ayyappa where he is with his female consort and the energy in those temples is the combination of both, moksha and the support of the creative process. This is because the Temple Technology in these temples is different. In those temples all ladies of all ages are allowed.

V: Except during the time of the month, when women are considered to be “impure”.

I am glad that you brought this point up again. I can understand how this can be understood as a discrimination against women from the perspective of women. I will try to make you understand how men and women are treated equally in this aspect.

From our earlier discussion, you have now understood, that women are carrying the energy of creation while they are going through the regular menstruation cycle, right?

V: Yes, that makes sense.

So now, we can look at this process in more detail and also understand what is happening inside the female body every month.

Because creation of a baby is such a special process, the body gets ready for it and renews the cells and tissues in the uterus, to prepare it in order to be able to conceive. When the egg is not fertilized it starts to dissolve, along with all the cells and tissues that were created for this egg. In other words, the egg and the cell tissues die and are disposed and thrown out by the body. Then, this cycle starts over again, where another egg is sent on the way to be fertilized and new cell tissues in the uterus are created. Consequently, the female body is continuously undergoing the cycle of life and death inside her body itself.

V: Which everyone should consider as a completely natural process and nothing impure.

You are right! The cycle of life and death inside a female body is as natural as the cycle of life and death that all bodies undergo!

V: Exactly! So why the big fuss about it?

The rules for all temples are the same and very strict in this point. Anybody, whether male or female, when there has been a birth or death in the family, they are not allowed in the temple, even the priests.

V: But then, why is it pointed out particularly that women are impure at that time?

I would like to make a point about the usage of the word “impurity”. We have to be very very careful with the usage of words that have been around for a long time, because the meaning changes over time. Nowadays, when you say to someone that he is impure, it is very negative and is considered an insult.

V: Indeed, it sounds very filthy and dirty.

The Sanksrit word which is used in the Vedas is ‘shudda’, which means ‘only one, not another’. For example, when we talk about pure oil or pure gold it means that there is nothing else inside.

You were born with only one goal, for Moksha. So when there is something else, even if it is just a desire for something else, you have become ‘impure’ in the sense that you are not only seeking that one goal Moksha anymore. That is the original understanding of impurity and how it was used by the Vedas.

To be born and to die without attaining Moksha or liberation means that you have missed the goal for which you took birth, which is attaining Moksha. This is why this process is considered ‘impure’ in the Vedic understanding of impurity.
