Great Saints of India have always been the source of Compassion to her people. They taught the world that recognition of others’ sufferings, compassion towards fellow human beings to save them from such suffering and the resultant acts of charity is the gateway to any spiritual aspirant irrespective of his religion, caste, creed or even his social affiliation.

These Saints are truly avatars of Lord Muruga and they appear in the world almost every century.

Our Gurunathar

We people of this century have been blessed with our Gurunathar His Holiness Arumuga Aranga Mahaa Desiga Swamigal, Avatar of Lord Muruga with His holy intention of ending Kali-yuga (Period of evil activities) and establishing Ascetics Yuga to save the devotees and virtuous people of the world from the clutches of Kali Yuga. Born in a simple and respectable family in 1936, our Guru worshipped Lord Muruga, Agathiar and other immortal saints to realize the true spirituality and remained celibate. Pursuing Siddha worship and propagating the same among His followers, His penance has been unparalleled.

His Avatar as a normal human is so subtle and fine that it is so difficult for a common man to recognize His godly nature and activities. If only a devotee with the belief of His being a saintly Avatar, surrenders to Him seeking welfare and enlightenment, our Guru’s true nature is learned.

Our Guru has been on just one meal a day for over 40 years of His penance. That too saltless. Many a days He has lived only on fruits. But it is a wonder that He has traveled widely to meet and preach to His devotees and followers the true meaning of meditation, meditating to Siddhas and Saints. There are no rituals practiced in Ongarakudil, Lord Muruga’s Seventh abode. All He did to allow His followers to realize the strength of His penance was the organization’s truthful service to the society. That comprises of drinking water supply to Thuraiyur town continuously for 8 years, feeding the poor for over 200 Million people since 1988 continuing till date, noncommercial spiritual activities yet showcasing to the world a straightforward achievement of service to the community. Such selfless service must be unthinkable even for the governments. But for the strength of Guru’s penance, blessings of Siddhas, Sages, and saints this would not have been possible.

தானமும் தவமும் தான் செய்வாராகில்
வானவர் நாடு வழி திறந்திடுமே

Meaning that if one indulges in almsgiving to the needy and poor and practices penance of worshipping immortal saints, to him or her the Land of Devas or heaven will open out. Services to the humanity as guided by such immortal saints paves the way for the upliftment of one’s social and spiritual life as it is true service to God.

Saint Ramalinga Swamigal, popularly known as Vallalar of the 19th century preaches Jeeva Karunyam or Empathy. He lists the benefits of feeding the fellow human beings:

  • It gets rid of one’s sins carried from his or her innumerable previous births
  • It cures his or her long illness
  • It blesses the practicing family with a happy and peaceful life
  • It prevents suffering and agony due to childlessness, marriage related issues
  • It saves the country from natural disasters whose citizens practice almsgiving, feeding the poor as the way of life.
  • Above all, it gives the wisdom to live a noble life without compromising on its values.

The list is long and elaborate in His compassionate Compilation of Holy Book titled Jeeva Karunya Ozhukkam.

He further says that mere rituals carried out in pursuit of spiritual upliftment will be utterly useless without the advent of Compassionate act of feeding the poor.


Unflinching belief in Siddha worship, meditating to them every day Feeding the poor- Guru has been advocating that one should feed at least two people every month. Being vegetarian and a non-slayer of animals in the name of God or otherwise.


To establish the Kingdom of Lord Muruga. To deliver just and compassionate rule to the world where caste, creed, religion will have no role. It shall be a spiritual politics that aims only for the welfare of the people. No means of greed, violence, fanaticism or selfish politics shall be tolerated.
