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: 679

நீகேண் மறக்கினு நின்னையாம் விட்டுப்

போகே மெனவெனைப் பொருந்திய பொன்னே!

Resplendent

Gold

Treasure,

Which

Declared

“Even

If

You

Forget

Me,

I

Will

Not

Leave

You”,

And

United

With

My

Soul,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This couplet continues the series of couplets on the maximal excellence of the nature of OmniLight. These couplets also invoke gold and its aspects to convey this maximal excellence of the nature of OmniLight. The imperishable and immaculate nature of the OmniLight Gold is also contrasted with the perishable and imperfect nature of mundane gold.

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.
