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

“Bacchus Consoling Ariadne” by Aimé-Jules Dalou

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 596

சவலைநெஞ் சகத்தின் தளர்ச்சியும் அச்சமும்

கவலையும் தவிர்த்து எனைக் கலந்தநல் நட்பே!   

My

Immature,

Indecisive,

Faltering

Heart,

Its

Fear,

Fatigue,

And

Anxiety,

Averted,

Abolished,

In

The

Consummate

Consoling

Union

Forged

By

The Supreme Goodness of OmniLight Friend!

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