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: 303

எண்ணில்பல் சத்தியை யெண்ணிலண் டங்களை

அண்ணுற வகுத்த வருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி!

Innumerable

Shaktis,

Powers,

Energies,

And

Their

Innumerable

Worlds

Of

Operation,

Stupendously

Computed,

Organized

In

Unison,

By

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

The Shaktis (Tamil: சத்தி or Satti) are various powers or energies operative in worlds. This couplet affirms that these Shaktis and the worlds in which they operate are both innumerable. The marvelous unity of the nature of these powers or energies and the worlds in which they operate is a function of the stupendous fine-tuning and organization 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.
