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.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
