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.

Vedic hymn in Western notation

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 714

நாதநல் வரைப்பி னண்ணிய பாட்டே

வேதகீ தத்தில் விளைதிருப் பாட்டே!

The

Song

Which

Resounds

In

The

Benign

Space

Of

Primordial

Sound,

The

Sacred

Song

In

The

Melody

Of

The

Vedic

Hymn,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This couplet celebrates song as the manifestation of the supreme sound-vibration mode (OM) of the OmniLight.

The OmniLight is the eternal song which pervades the transcendental space of Nadam or primordial OM sound at the start of cosmic creation. The OmniLight is also celebrated as the sacred song in the melody of the Vedic hymn.

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.
