சத்திய ஞான சபை (Sathiya Gnana Sabhai) or The Great Hall of Truth-Knowledge designed by Ramalingam without any formal training in architecture and constructed in 1871. It was opened to the public in January 1872It is not a Hindu temple and ought not to be considered one. It has no idols of any kind.

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 556

சினமுதல் அனைத்தையும் தீர்த்து  எனை

நனவினும் கனவினும் பிரியாக் கருணை நற் றாயே!

Anger

And

All

Associates

Abolished,

In

The

Ageless

Association,

Anchoring

All

Waking

And

Dream

States,

Bestowed

By the OmniLight Aṉṉai Of Supreme Compassion!

Note:  The Tamil word “Aṉṉai” (அன்னை) denotes mother. 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.
