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 1872. It has no anthropomorphic idols or images.

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 612

மூர்த்தர்கள் பலவாய் மூர்த்திகள் பலவாய்

ஏற்பட விளக்கிடு மென்றனிச் சித்தே!

Forms,

Bearers

Of

Forms,

Makers

Of

Forms,

Their

Governors,

Fine-Tuned

To

Proliferate,

And

Illuminated,

By

OmniLight Supreme Intelligence!

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 couplets.
