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.



Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 499

அருள்வடி வதுவே யழியாத் தனிவடி

வருள்பெற முயலுகென் றருளிய சிவமே!

“The

Body

Manifesting

Arul,

The

Light

Of

Divine

Compassion,

Is

The

Incomparable,

Indestructible

Body.

Therefore,

Strive

To

Realize

Arul

Thus

Bid

Benevolently

Absolute OmniLight Intelligence!

Note: The Light of Divine Compassion is present in all the four levels of existence: inmost (soul), inner (mind), outer (body), and outermost (world). But one must consciously realize and express it.

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.
