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: 300

நாதமாம் பிரமமும் நாதவண் டங்களை

ஆதரம் வகுத்த வருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி!

Nada

Brahman,

The

Transcendental

Sound-Vibration,

And

Its

Emanations

Of

Sound-Worlds,

Graciously

Designed,

Organized,

By

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

Nada Brahman is the transcendental sound-vibration, an emanation of the supreme being, OmniLight. A string of sound-worlds is generated by this transcendental sound-vibration and designed and organized graciously by OmniLight.

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.
