Alaveddy’s Subramuniya Temple

Today we received six photos from Sri Lanka, and the good news that the temple is finished. Installation of the Sivalingam is scheduled for March 27 and will be presided over by none other than Sri Prasanna Kurukkal from Nallur Temple, who will conduct the Kumbhabhishekam rites. Thondunatha tell us they are now at work on infrastructure, plumbing, electrical, storage facilities, etc. For those who are new to the area, Alaveddy is where Gurudeva stayed as a young man, in the home of Kandiah Chettiar (on this very property, the house has been removed), It was Chettiar who introduced Gurudeva to Yogaswami in 1949. Thondunatha ended his note saying, "Everyone, especially the people of Alaveddy, are so excited to see this beautiful unique shrine in their village."

Enjoy the photos of this meditation pavilion soon to be open to all, a place of solace and quietude to inspire the inward journey that Yogaswami spoke of so often.

    Very beautiful. Fitting reflection of Gurudeva’s connection there. Could we have the unfiltered images as well? The architecture seems slightly different to traditional Jaffna ones. The Nandi is Karnataka style (?).

    Siva Siva !!!
