Guru Maheshwarar

Just as the Siddhas consider the Mandhira Paavai as their Mother, they consider the Shivalingam as their Guru and offer daily worship without fail. The small shrine in which the Arul Vaakku has been held since 1984, also houses a small Lingam. 

As per the revelation of the Divine Mother, the 18 Siddhas who have graciously taken abode at the Pallikkaranai Temple, worship this lingam every morning during Brahma Muhurtham (a period of one hour and 36 minutes before sun rise every day) and only then settle down into their yogic state of absorption.

This sacred Lingam, thus worshipped by the 18 Siddhas at the temple of Pallikkaranai is known as Guru Maheswarar.

As per the command of the Divine Mother, this was duly consecrated as a Vigraha as per traditional rites and the space that housed the LIngam effectively became a sanctum sanctorum. Thus, the Lingam is now also worshipped by the devotees.

Many devotees who have stayed back for the Velvi (Yaagam) at the temple on Pournami night have reported mystical visions of Siddhas seated in groups before Guru Maheswarar and engrossed in worship or circumambulating the temple with great devotion. Therefore, a lamp is lit behind this sanctum sanctorum on Pournami night, as a mark of respect to the Siddhas.

The Guru Maheswarar lingam holds special significance for aspirants who are keen to attain mastery in esoteric pursuits such as Siddha medicine, alchemy, astronomy, astrology, varma, dhyanam, yogam, etc. It’s believed that worshipping Guru Maheswarar helps such aspirants to automatically develop a keen inner intuition and deep knowledge of these subjects.

We welcome devotees to our temple to see and worship Guru Maheswarar, the Guru of the Siddhas and obtain His blessings.
