The Honourable High Court has lauded the movement and has placed its appreciation on record. The High Court has observed "that project at Sannidhanam has contributed much to keep the premises clean. That project has now evolved to be of people's and pilgrims project; appreciated throughout the length and breadth of the nation and in particular, the states from wherever people in huge numbers come to Sabarimala. The pilgrims have taken Punyam Poonkavanam project to their heart and soul and are participating in that project with devotion, as if, it by itself, is an offering to the Almighty. We hope that this conducive eco-friendly approach continues. TDB and the State Government shall do everything required in this regard."
The movement is now all set to extend to all pilgrim spots across the country to spread message of "cleanliness is godliness" and also to make aware of the significance of "Responsible and Concious Pilgrimage".
Right now, the initiative is focusing on ensuring a clean and garbage-free Sabarimala. Right from Nilackal, the gateway to Sabarimala, to Sannidhanam, the shrine. The movement plans to achieve the goal by sticking to the panchamanthras that should govern all the devotees arriving at the hill shrine for darshan
The prime intent will be to convince the devotees not to bring plastic wastes and to abstain from dumping at Sabarimala and to carry the waste generated by them back from they have brought and to dispose appropriately. The further plan will be to ensure the participation of all the stakeholders in the cleaning process and thereby maintaining the sanctity of Sabarimala Sannidhanam.
If Lord Ayyappa's Grove can remain sacred; every temple can be so!
Because, Tat Tvam Asi! God resides in you!
Cleanliness is Godliness.
