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.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
