Homage to a Saint.

Tamilnadu blessed with great Saints and Savants indeed is great!
Dharmapuram Aadheenam  a Saivite mutt or  based in the town of Mayiladuthurai,kodumudi magudeswara temple.Twenty seven Shiva temples under the control of the adheenam.
Vaitheeswaran Koil, near sirkazhi is considered as  main temple maintained
Twenty sixth Gurumaha sannithanam passed away in fourth December this year.

The Adheenam is involved in publishing Saivite literature, specifically Thevaram
And Tiruvasakam and its translations.literary scholarship. Adheenam along with Thiruvaduthurai Adheenam and Thiruppanandal Adheenam were founded during
The sixteenth century to spread the ideology of Saiva Sidhanta.

Here is a poetic tribute in Tamil by Pulavar  Ramamoorthy of Santha Vasantham, Chennai:

தருமையரு   ளாதீனத்   தலைவர்   என்னும்
     தனிச்சிறப்பால்  சைவத்தை   ஆண்ட வேந்தர்
ஒருமையுடன்  திருவருளை  உலகத்   தார்க்கே
      உரையாலும்  செயலாலும்  வழங்கி  வாழ்ந்தார்,
குருமுதல்வர்   எனநமக்கே  ஆசி   நல்கி
      குவலயத்தில்  சைவநெறிக்  கொடியை  ஏற்றித்
திருநெறிய   தமிழ்வளர்த்த  சீர்வ   ளர்சீர்
        தேசிகரின்  திருவடியே  சிந்திப்  போமே!
In English
By the fact of his being the head of Dharmapura Adhinam
         He ruled over the SAIVITE branch of Hinduism
God’s greatness  to the people of the faith with focus
        He his actions and words graced the faithful and lived.
As chief Guru He blessed us gracefully
       Hoisted the flag of tenets of Saivism
And developed the divinity of Tamil language
     Let us worship His divine feet and receive His grace!

  1. A nice tribute to Dharmapuram Aadheenam!

    A saivite saint in the service of Tamil language!

    One among the spiritualists, true to their propagated doctrines, setting an example as to how a spiritual master should be!
