St.Thomas tomb in Madras - a true report

Sakthi Foundation

தர்மம் மிகு சென்னையில் புனித தாம்ஸின் ஜீவசமாதி

புனித தாமஸ் பாரத தேசத்தில் குறிப்பாக மயிலையில் உள்ள சாந்தோம் பகுதியில் வாழ்ந்துள்ளார் என்பதில் ஐயம் இல்லை. தாமஸ் தம் ஆத்மா  ஷாந்தி அடைந்ததால் அவ்வூர் சாந்தோம் ஆனது. மயிலையைச் சுற்றியுள்ள பகுதிகளில் அவர் ஏசுவின் ஆன்மீக நெறிகளை ப்ரச்சாரம் செய்துள்ளார்.

அவர் காலத்தில் அவர் பரப்பிய கிறிஸ்துவ நெறி இன்றையதில் இருந்து சற்று மாறுபட்டதே! உள்ளூர் அரசனின் ஆதரவும் மக்களும் அவருக்கு இருந்துள்ளது.

அவர் கல்லால் செதுக்கிய புனிதச் சிலுவையும் அதைச் சுற்றியுள்ள திருவாச்சியும் அதை உள்படுத்த வடித்தக் கருங்கல் மண்டபமும் புனித தீர்த்த பெருங்கிண்ணமும் சாந்தோம் தேவாலய அருங்காட்சியகத்தில் உள்ளன.

St.Thomas could not have been killed

Sakthi Foundation
புனித தாமஸை மதவாதிகள் எதிர்த்தனரா?
புனித தாமஸ் பாரத தேசத்திற்கு வந்து தன் ஆசான் ஏசு கூறிய சத்யப்பொருளின் மூல சாரத்தை உணர்ந்துள்ளார்.தம் தேசத்து மக்களுக்கு ஏசு அதை விளக்கியுள்ளதை எடுத்துக் காட்டியும் இருக்கிறார்.இதை ஏற்றுக் கொண்டவர்கள் நம் மக்கள்.

ஆனால் ப்ரச்சனை எங்கு வந்திருக்கும் தெரியுமோ?
இன்றும் நம் தேசத்தில் பற்பல ஆச்சாரியர்களைப் பின்பற்றுபவர்கள் கண்மூடித் தனமான போக்கில் தம் ஆச்சாரியனை விட மேலோங்கியவரோ இணையானவரோ வேறில்லர் என்று கூறிவிடும் போது சமூஹத்தில் பிற ஜனங்கள் மன சங்கடத்துக்கு ஆளாகி, வெறுக்க ஆரம்பிக்கிறார்கள்.

இதையே தான் தாமஸின் பாரதச் சீடர்கள் செய்திருக்க வேண்டும்.இதன் மூலம் பிற கொள்கைகளையும் ஆசான்களையும் பின்பற்றுவோருக்குத் தாமஸின் ஆன்மீக நெறி மீது வெறுப்பும் பழி வாங்கும் எண்ணமும் மேலோங்கி இருத்தல் வேண்டும்.

அரசியல் சூழலும் இதற்குத் துணை போய் இருத்தல் வேண்டும்.

ஆனால் தாமஸின் கல்லறை என்பது இன்றைய புனித ஜீவசமாதிகளுக்கு நிகரானதே! ஏனெனில் பல மதத்து மக்களும் அதை வணங்கினர், வணங்குகிறார்கள் என்பதே உண்மை.

Report about Poraiyar Center - Dr.M.Madeswaran, January 2016

I made a visit to Poraiyar UNI5 center on 8th and 9th of January 2016. It is very nice to see the center in new small hall roofed with asbestos. The center is also having toilet now. The center generally looked clean. There was distraction by these children to higher grades and vise versa as we have moved to this new building.

A memorable day in my life...
I have been invited to Andavar middle school. When I went there it was a great surpriase and shock for me to see students of grades 7 and 8 being ready with an exhibition which we has suggested long back. The topis was about health and kitchen.

Thiruvilayadal puranam - 20. Feeding sugar cane to stone elephant

20. Feeding Sugarcane to Stone Elephant

The Pandya who was ruling at the time came to know that a Siddhar had visited his kingdom and conducted a discourse. He was very surprised and eager to meet the enlightened one, use his powers.

So he sent his soldiers to escort the Siddhar. Will such an enlightened one oblige? Such people have neither fear nor desire and so he refused to visit the king in his palace.

What this means is that the mind clears only with intense practice, not by force. It also shows that pure minds do not seek worldly pleasures.

The next day was the first day of the Tamil month Thai, when the sun changes its direction. The people of Madurai celebrate Makara Sankranthi very beautifully. Sun symbolises awareness of the divine truth.

‘Ellam Valla Siddhar’ sits peacefully with his fingers in chin mudra in the sanctum sanctorum to the right of Durga’s sanctum sanctorum near the abhisheka teertham.

He bestowed Sakthi Foundation with 12A 80G status

It is customary for devotees to offer flower cones when their prayers are answered. Sakthi Foundation too offered the flowers when we got 80G certification honestly and without much cost when we prayed to the Siddhar.

There is also a copper idol of the Siddhar near the deity. His naughty smile is so attractive!

Thiruvilayadal puranam - 18. The Union of Clouds

18. The Union of Clouds

Though Varuna was upset about the state of affairs, Indra instigated him into thinking arrogantly that there was nothing to fear from mere humans who depended on the Gods for their very lives.

Where are prayers and penance?

This is the state we are in even today. We do not care for nature. In those days - why, even ten years ago - we would perform yagas and chant Varuna’s name if monsoons failed. But today, because there is no unity among people, all that is lost. People are content so long as their individual lives run smoothly. We think someone else will take responsibility.

When Muthuswami Deekshitar was passing by Sathanur, he was dejected to see the land struck by drought. He sang in Amrithavarshini raga and brought rains to the region. Today musicians can come together to sing. But where is the money in that?

Thiruvilayadal puranam - 17. The Seas Dry Up

17. The Seas Dry Up

Who is the seller of gems?

The Lord came to Madurai to sell high quality jewels. So long as everything in the universe is a manifestation of the One, the jeweller  too is that One. But only those traders who are honest, not greedy and conduct business transactions ethically, they are all Sadasivamurthys. We should understand that one such visited Madurai.

Who is Abhisheka Pandya?

The Lord gave the boy blue sapphire for his crown. This boy will rule Madurai well and be known as Abhisheka Pandyan. The word Abhisheka has two meanings – one is washing and the other is the crown. This name indicates that he was highly spiritually evolved.

Thiruvilayadal puranam - 16. Selling Rubies The Pandyan who lost his SAL energy

16. Selling Rubies The Pandyan who lost his SAL energy

Veerapandyan was an insignificant king. But he desired pleasures, especially the company of women. Indulging in sex lowers our SAL energy considerably. One of the reasons for our country’s poverty is the indulgence of kings and leaders in excessive sex. When we see the youth today propagating living in and free sex, the future of our country seems very dark indeed. Veerapandyan had many children through many women. Despite that he had no heirs from his chief queen. The king and the queen followed several rites to somehow get a child and finally succeeded. The crown goes missing Modern research shows that children born of illicit relationship do not have a healthy mind. When Veerapandyan died unexpectedly, his illegitimate children looted the treasury and went away to different kingdoms. He had been attacked and killed by a tiger in the jungle. In all this, the crown embellished by the nine gems was also lost. What is a crown? The crown worn on the head stands for awareness. Only those who think they and their people are the same are eligible to wear the crown. The Nine Precious Stones Each of the nine precious stones stands for a human quality. By wearing them, we can increase our life force to some extent, say the scriptures. But just wearing jewels engraved with these stones is of no use. The nine stones are: 1. Ruby 2. Pearl 3. Coral 4. Emerald 5. Yellow sapphire 6. Diamond 7. Blue sapphire 8. Hessonite 9. Cat’s eye The nine stones are available on earth. Earth represents the physical body. The nine stones have nine properties associated with the body. Deities in temples are decorated with the different precious stones because they have the ability to increase the life force. Every spiritually significant place be it Madurai, Srirangam, Srivilliputtur or Tirupathy bedecks the idols of the deities with jewels for this reason. The ritual of using specific jewels at specific times is also related to this. The diamond nose stud of Madurai Meenakshi, the snake diamond of Kanyakumari and the golden tower of Srirangam all have been used to rejuvenate the natural power of the earth. This was why Meenakshi and Uttara Kosa Mangai have been carved from emerald. The temple tower in Thiruvalangadu was decorated with gemstones, which is why it was called Rathanmbalam. The king would wear a crown with all nine stones so that his life force may increase. And now the crown of the Pandya dynasty was missing. More importantly, the precious stones had been stolen. Where to buy similar stones? Even if they had the money, they should be able to source it in the first place. What is the significance of losing the crown? It shows that the Pandyas had lost all the life force they had collected through spiritual practices. Indulging in sensual pleasures had negated all the spiritual energy they had built up. Now the king must realise and his awareness increase. Young Pandya Veerapandya’s five year old son through the chief queen had to be crowned the king and there was no crown for coronation. The minister, not knowing what to do, surrendered to god. When the highest knowledge is lost, only with divine guidance can it be retrieved. The Lord too came to Madurai as a seller of gems and explained to the royal family the significance of the gems. The young boy listened with heightened awareness and ruled with great after the coronation. He did not want to lose the gems, that is, the knowledge, again. This is the change of heart the gems achieved. Om Namah Sivaya!
