The Sabarimala Karma Samiti has decided to light one crore ‘Makara lamps’ on the ‘Makara Vilakku’ day. The decision was taken at a meeting of the state committee held in Kochi. The Karma Samiti has also decided to show Makara Jyoti throughout the state on Makara Vilakku Day every year to maintain Sabarimala’s customs and purity.
The lamp will be lit in temples and public places across the state from 6.30 pm to 7.15 pm on that day. The Karma Samiti has asked all Ayyappa devotees to participate in large numbers irrespective of caste and creed. The Sabarimala Karma Samiti had lit the Ayyappa-jyoti previous year too.
