OmniLight Invocations 365

“Siddhi Valaagam” or “Abode of Adepthood”, Metukuppam, near Vadalur, Tamilnadu, South India, with the bicolored (Yellow and White) flag of Suddha Sanmargam hoisted in front of the house.  He was residing in this house when he raised the bicolored flag of Suddha Sanmargam on October 21, 1873, signaling both his own “Siddhi” or attainment of adepthood and the dawn of the epoch of Suddha Sanmargam marked by, among other things, the global attenuation and eventual dissolution of divisions based on caste, tribe, race, nationality, class, gender, and religion.

Painting by Vietnamese painter Le Pho (1907 – 2001) modeled after classic paintings of “Madonna nursing her baby” by Leonardo Da Vinci and others.

Note:  The Arutperunjothi Agaval is Ramalingam’s magnum opus of enlightenment poetry composed in 798 couplets in 1872. In later posts, I will offer commentaries on these verses.
