One of the rare paintings of Swami Ramalingam kept at his shrine in Karunkuli, near Vadalur. It was in this shrine-room that the ever compassionate Swami had poured water instead of oil to miraculously burn the mud-lamp. Some of the devotees believe that this may be his original physical form. It could be that for a period of time during his earthly life, the Swami had kept a a moustache.

A western, Sanmarga disciple of Swami Ramalingam, is seen here lovingly distributing the holy sacred ash to the Sanmarga devotees at the Siddhi Valagam Temple shrine. Vallalar’s path of Samarasa Suddha Sanmargam(Path of Supramental Truth Consciousness and Vast Grace-Light), the highest evolutionary spiritual path because of its science of deathlessness, has been attracting the people from all walks of life. Now the time has come for the path of Suddha Sanmargam- the path which abolishes the disease, death and mortality- to spread all the four corners of the world.
To begin with, Auro-Ma-Ramalingam Trust has placed a symbolic and prayful aspiration at the lotus feet of Vallalar on this most sacred day i.e. 25-01-2008 that a ‘Satya Gnana Sabai’ or ‘Temple of Arut Perum Jyothi,’ exactly along the architectural lines and similar to the ‘Satya Gnana Sabai’ in Vadalur, should be established and constructed in U.S.A.,
