Thrikkakara Appan – The Clay Pyramid Structure Used During Onam

A clay pyramid structure with four faces and a flat top used during Onam celebrations symbolizes Thrikkakara Appan or Thrikakkarappan. This unique structure represents Vamana, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. For some people, the pyramid represents both King Maveli and Vishnu. It is also referred as Onathappan. Thrikkakarappan is the presiding deity in the famous Thrikakkara temple in Ernakulam District of Kerala and is closely associated with the Onam myth.

It is believed that Vamana had sent Mahabhali to Patalam at Trikkakara. The place where the holy feet (Trikkal) of Vishnu touched came to be known as Trikkalkara. This later became Thrikkakara.

According to Onam Story and popular belief, Lord Vishnu in his Vamana Avatar unjustly pushed King Mahabali into the netherworld or pathalam. But Lord Vishnu granted King Bali the boon to visit his subjects once in a year. It is also believed that King Bali got ‘Vishnu sayujyam’ or reached the Vaikuntha. Due to this both King Mahabali and Lord…

Symbolism in Mouse or Mooshika as the Vahana or Vehicle of Lord Ganesha

A rat, referred as Mooshika or Moonjoor, is the Vahana or vehicle of Lord Ganesha. Each deity in the Hindu pantheon as a Vahanam and it carries a symbolic meaning. When a person thinks logically, it is impossible for a mouse to carry Lord Ganesha. But Hinduism depicts a mouse as the vehicle of Lord Ganesha. The mouse is a symbol and contains a hidden truth.


The mouse is a symbol of greed – mice have the tendency to eat whatever it sees, it also has the habit of biting anything and making it not usable. Lord Ganesha controls this aspect in one’s character.
Thus the symbolism of mouse as vehicle of Ganesha teaches us that we should only bite into what we need to suffice our hunger. We should not destroy food.

Again we should not go around peeping into other people’s life. Simply going around and passing comments and creating confusion is not a good habit. This habit of human beings is like that of the rat which simply bites on anything that it sees.
Another symbolism indicates that th…

Always be true to one’s self and one’s feelings

Be what you are. Do not pretend to be someone that you are not.

Happiness will elude you if you pretend to be someone that you are not.

Avoid pretending for short-term gains.

If you start a relationship by pretending, then soon there will be huge problems in that relationship.

Trying new things and expressing oneself is good. But it should not be at the cost of one’s individuality.

Borrowing styles from people and following it blindly will only make us a laughing stock.
Always be true to one’s self and one’s feelings.
