Chellappaswami, Yogaswami’s guru, spent much of his life sleeping outside the Nallur temple at the Theravadi, or the “chariot shed.” This chariot shed has been renovated and beautified. We bring you today pictures from there as well as from Chellappaswami’s mahasamadhi shrine where his ashes are interred.
Chellappaa Swamigal Nilaivaalayam
Above his shrine are inscribed the four Mahavakyam, great sayings of Chellappaswami
Oru Pollaappumillai -- There is no evil
Eppavoh Mudeentha Kaariyam -- It was all determined long ago.
Naamariyohm -- We Know Not
Muluthum Unmai -- All is Truth

AUMSIVAYA…Loads of thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures! I am greatly touched by these photos. I was not aware that a shrine of our Chellapaswami still exist. I am so happy that the shrine is still taken care of. Please do share with us more about the shrine and its activities at this sacred place.AUM.
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
