Revival of Tiruchengode Sarvajnapeetham

Revival of Tiruchengode Sarvajnapeetham


The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism named the first structure He built here as \”Ramakrishna Dhyanapeetham\”, commemorating Sri Ramakrishna Mission, which HE declared is the mother\’s lap for Hinduism. HE Himself had served in The Ramakrishna Mission in Chennai, Kanchipuram and Kolkata, as a pivotal volunteer and monastic member from 1995 – 1999 (from the age of 17 to 21, amidst periods of spiritual wandering inbetween). Besides the main temple and monastery structures, The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism inaugurated some of the other important pillars of KAILASA which are: the Gomandir – temple for protecting and worshipping the sacred cows – divine beings, an annalaya – food temple for serving 24 hours free satvic food to the citizens and visitors of Tiruchengode, a safe haven for running the Nithyananda Gurukul – the traditional education system of KAILASA, and paved the way for KAILASA to function from this region in its fullest glory over the years to follow.

The Sacred Kaveri River, the svayambhu Linga, the Kāśi Liṅga and the Bilva tree

The sacred Kaveri river

The sacred Kaveri river on whose banks the new territory is located is called the Ganga (river in North India) of the South. The sacred river Ganga, the lifeline of millions of people, originates in North India and is worshipped most fervently along its entire course. The river Ganga takes a U-turn against its own current at Kashi (also called Varanasi, the spiritual capital city of India), just to worship Kashi Vishwanatha – the Śiva Liṅga at the Kashi Vishwanath temple at that location. Similarly, the sacred Kaveri takes a U-turn against her own current exactly at this spot where this monastery is located.

The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism therefore installed a second Śiva Liṅga (other than the main moola Linga in the main sanctum) that carries the same energy as the Śiva Linga in the Kashi Vishwanath temple in Kashi (also called Varanasi). This monastery is therefore a heritage site equal to Varanasi (spiritual capital city of India) in its potential to liberate people. This second Śiva Linga here, consecrated by The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism carries the same energy to liberate people in this birth.

One day, The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism was seated in meditation on a rock inside the sacred river Kaveri, when He beheld a Vision (behind closed eyes) of a lady coming towards Him, garlanding Him and worshipping Him. The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism opened His eyes to find a flower garland around Him, and bilva leaves showered on His head. Bilva is the leaf that is sacred to Lord Paramaśiva (Primordial Hindu Divinity).

The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism took the bilva leaves and placed it on the ground in a certain location at the Aadheenam, from where grew this Bilva tree. This bilva tree stands today as a sacred spot in this heritage site for people to meditate and manifest what they want in life.
