Attual Pongala: The raw and the cooked

Children looking at the Attukal temple pond

Pongala is mental cleansing.
Imagine the pongala pot as your mind; what you boil and cook inside is none other than the ego, the sins and the bad thoughts that have always pulled you back.
The raw is now cooked, it a has transformed to a new thing, its no more the rice and jaggerry; its the prasada, or the resurrected mind.
Pongala is resurrection of mind.
