Home away from home is swAmy’s home, right in the middle of welcoming wilderness, a blazing budding forest. Swamy is constructing a Singara vadivelan temple, initially summoned to construct a temple for Senthil gurunAthan erected over the remains of a buried temple in a place where siddhars still live, near HAPP trichy. Swamy plans to build a bhogar style Murugan statue. This abhisheka teertha is what I want to savour having so many medicinal herbs’ essence. Swamy has a book on Muruganandham adikalar written by thiru Tamilanandham.
Swamy told about Muruganantham adikalar who was apparently EVR periyar’s friend, an atheist to start with. “Solayam…Saalaiyam pAraiyAm…,” he sang songs about educational institutions in Mandaiyur in 1947; Bharathidasan University, Anna University and now IIM trichy, made this prophesy true. Eldest son of an affluent family; due to divine play, developed leprosy and was quarantined in the forest outskirts. His mother fed him every day, while his wife watched. A passing siddhar assured the mother, as she lamented her son’s state. Upon her request, the siddhar went to see Muruganandham adikalar, who accepted siddhar’s thiruneer that day, despite being an atheist. Within days, one dramatic night, he came out of forest and in spite of leprosy eating his fingers, climbed temple’s steep walls and sat in deep mediation.
His mother was aghast the next day on finding her son missing while going to give him food. She searched the only two wells inside the village and didn’t find him there. She relaxed only after the pujari found him inside locked temples. Almost like Les Miserables scene of divine inspiration making man scale great heights amidst no ropes or no fingers to clasp the ropes. Muruganandham adikalar said, he just saw a green vine holding on to which he got inside the temple. And just to pacify onlookers who laughed at an atheist singing divine songs, he turn water into milk and performed many other miracles and spent his days singing praises of Lord Muruga.
This Singara vadivelan temple near HAPP is truly amazing with spinal cord affected folks walking again, apamrutyu jatak living full life, sick getting healed reviving as a medical miracle.
