Ayyappa Harivarasanam (ஹரிவராசனம், ഹരിവരാസനം, హరివరాసనం, ಹರಿವರಾಸನಂ) is a Malayalam (മലയാളം) devotional song written in eight stanzas, called 'Ashtakam'.This ashtakam "Harivarasanam" extolling the virtues of Lord Ayyappan/Ayyanaar is sung just before the closure of the shrine at night after the final poojas. As the concluding stanzas are recited, the assistant Santhis (Priests) leave the Sanctum Sanctorum; only the Mel Santhi (Head Priest) remains inside the Sreekovil. Extinguishing the lamps one by one, he shuts temple doors for the night.
Though there have been many versions of 'Harivarasanam' sung by many renowned vocalists like P. Unni Krishnan, the Sabarimala temple plays the rendition by K.J.Yesudas of a musical version composed by the renowned music director G. Devarajan.
Harivarasanam celebrates the union of the human soul with the ultimate and expounds the greatness of Ayyappan. It is believed to have been composed by Kumbakudi Kulathur Iyer and was first recited at Sabarimala in 1955 by Swami Vimochananad.
Sabarimala is located in the deep jungle area, and in the past a few pious devotees managed the difficult pilgrimage. The temple opens during the pilgrimage season (November to January) and also on the first day of every Malayalam year. VR Gopala Menon, from Alapuzha used to accompany Thirumeni Eashwaran Namboothiri, the Melshanthi (head priest), to Sannidhanam every time, and would stay there by himself even when the temple was closed, remaining undisturbed by the wild animals. Gopala Menon used to recite "Harivarasanam" with devotion during his time at Sannidhanam. When the Devaswom Board was formed, he was asked to move out. He eventually died at a tea estate at Vandiperiyar. When Thirumeni Eashwaran Namboothiri heard about Menon's passing, he was deeply saddened. At the end of the day's rituals, the Namboothiri was about to close the doors of the Sannidhanam when he remembered the dedication and sacrifice of Gopala Menon and began to recite "Harivarasanam"' starting a tradition that remains unbroken till date.
