Hi Dr.Ram,

That is very interesting.

Please tell me the exact occassion when this slogan / 'hym' is said, whether at Hethay Mane or at every 'hatti'?

Dear JP ‘mamma’
We, the badagas use this slogan at the beginning to call hethey in a “devvaaduva” occasion especially during “hethey abba” season. Although we use this in other hatties during “poorthi”, an occasion in which hethey disciples/sishyas will be called, we normally use this in hethey maney during the aforementioned occasion and we could indeed feel something beyond….. at that particular moment. Further, we use this only in “hethey devvaaduva” occasion unlike “hethey bhajans”, which we use in all the temples in various hatties during “pujas”.

Hello Dr.Rams,

Thanks for the prompt reply.

One of the biggest regrets I have is that I have not gone to "Hethai " - going on the 'offical' pilgrim as part of Hethe Kararu to Bergani and Pedduva. But I did have the honour and pleasure of being part of the ceremony at Peddhuva and when Hethay Mane people had comet to Hubbathalai and Ketchigatti.

During Hethay Habba [season] One of the important rituals is 'DEVADODHU' and now I can recollect the invocation of Hethay - that is 'Hetheya Koruchuvadhu' as Dr.Ram, so nicely, explained.

The function starts in hattis in the evening whenever the Hethai Mane people - the villagers, including the PUJARI from either Beraganni or Peddduva - are invited. They are ceremoniously welcomed and taken to the Suthugal - near the temple. Thuppadhittu / Ennae'hittu is served and people sit around a fire.

The tempo is slowly built up. One or two persons from the Hethe Mane start playing the Bugiri after invocation - Hetheya Koruchuvodhu.

As I am writing this I am getting goose pimples - the hair rising in the back of the neck (மெய் சிலிர்க்கிறது) for the occasion is so solemn and the atmosphere is thick with anticipation. The bugiri may look very simple but the musical notes played on that by the experts can make any one forget this world and transport to another world. The music is 'OH ennu Hethai, Odee Baali' or as Dr.Ram has mentioned.

The Poojari or the 'chosen one ' with his uncut long hair and without the shirt starts swaying to the music in standing position and obviously in a trance.

When the time comes, he gushes forth a scream and the music stops. Now he is truly POSSESSED by HETHAY and starts saying 'vaakku' - predictions. It may be general to the hatti or specific to a person or family. HE chooses him/her/them by throwing an 'embai - lime'. The person so chosen, kneels before th PUJARI and addresses him as HETHAY.

Once HE[THEY] finishes, at a signal the music starts again and the process continues.

Incidentally, in 'devvadodhu' - the Pujari or the other Chosen ones speak while in trance in BADAGA only till midnight. If it continues after that the 'predictions' are given in Kannada.

Hi there,

My personal opinion is that before we post somethings in the internet; we should consider and think about if it will cause any damage.

Since the forum is open to public (not just badagas); we should consider keeping sensitive stuff within ourselves (only amoung badagas on a need basis).

The concern is that it shouldn't be misused.

Thanks
Siva
