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.
