Speciality of the Temple

The Annai Aadhi Parasakthi Temple has several unique aspects to it. They are listed here so that current and would-be devotees may get a sense of the sheer spiritual grandeur that they are fortunate to both witness and participate.

The Temple and its Deities

The dimensions of every Karuvarai (Sannidhi or Sanctum Sanctorum), the various mandapams and the meditation hall were revealed by the Divine Mother Annai Aadhi Parasakthi through Her Arul Vaakku and were constructed entirely in accordance with those directions.

All the Vigrahas at the temple, their features, their yantras and their Kalasabhishekams (dates of installation) have been done based on the specifications given by the Divine Mother through the Arul Vaakku. The moola (seed) mantras and mantras for various other prayers / poojas are being given by the Mother, on an “as and when required” basis.

The story behind Annai’s Vigraha

When work on the temple started in the early 1980s, the Chief sculptor Shri. Dakshinamoorthy initially refused to sculpt the statue of the Mother (Annai Aadhi Parasakthi) to be kept in the sanctum sanctorum. According to him, the specifications given by the Siddhas (as revealed by the Mother in Arul Vaakku), did not follow the ‘Silpa Sastra’ rules. The Siddhas then lit a piece of camphor and in its flame, the sculptor saw the actual ‘Murti .

It was only after this divine experience that Shri. Dakshinamoorthy agreed to sculpt the Vigraha of Annai Aadhi Parasakthi and started its construction.

The Sacred Chants (Potrigal) of the Temple

All the sacred chants or Potrigal in vogue at the temple (Vinayagar Potri, Navagraha Potri, Archanai Malargal, Sivasakthi Potrigal, Mandhirappaavai Potrigal, Thirumagal Potrigal, Sani Bhagawan Potrigal, 1008 Potri Mandhirangal, Sakthi Kavasam, Vendudhal Kooru, Parasakthi Kannigal) were received from the Divine voice of the Mother.

The power of these Potrigal is believed to be synonymous with the chants of the Naayanmars’ Thevaram and Alwars’ Dhivyaprabandham. One is blessed with the divine grace and all the prayers answered when these Potrigal are chanted at home, with purity and sincerity.

Worshipping at the temple

The temple serves as a divine destination for resolving shortcomings and problems of life by the grace of Divine Mother Annai Aadhiparasakthi, relief from evil elements and enemies by the grace of sacred Mandhirappaavai and Siddhargal, abundance in wealth by the grace of Goddess Mahalaskhmi and wisdom by the grace of Goddess Gnanadevi.

All devotees, irrespective of their caste, colour and creed, are permitted to do Abishekam of the Mother on all full moon days, subject to certain laid down (see Sakti Malai) conditions.

Before seeking the blessings of above-mentioned deities, the blessings of Lord Ganesh should be sought by lighting one ghee lamp who removes hindrances. The prayer procedures are explained in the forthcoming pages.

Speciality of the temple

The Chief sculptor Shri. Dakshinamoorthy refused to sculpt the statue of the Mother to be kept in the sanctum sanctorum, because the specifications given, by the siddhas, did not follow the ‘Silpa Sastra’ rules. The siddhas lit a piece of camphor and in its flame, the sculptor, saw the actual ‘Murti’ and only then he started its construction.

There are two statues in the sanctum; the bigger one adorned with ornaments representing the materialistic (boga) way of life; and the smaller one with closed eyes depicting the spiritual (yoga) way of life.

The Sanctum Sanctorum (Karuvarai in Tamil, main dwelling place of deity) dimensions of various halls (mandapam’s) including the meditation hall was constructed in accordance to the directions of the Divine voice of Mother Annai Aadhiparasakthi.

The idols, its features, placement of instruments in hands, yantras, the sanctum sanctorum and the consecration ceremony had also been done based on specifications given by the Divine Mother and done on the specified date.

The Mother’s temple has four siddhas sitting in four corners :

  • Thayumanavar, in the South East preaching Guru Bakti

  • Vallalar, in the Sout West preaching Samarasa Sanmarg

  • Pattinathar in the North West preaching Gnana marg

  • Pambatti Siddhar in the North East preaching Dhyana Yoga

Unlike all other temples, musical instruments are never played inside the temple premises. No bells are ever rung during poojas either. The temple always maintains a silent atmosphere which is conducive for meditation and prayer.

When we circumambulate these siddhas cast their looks on us and gradually change our lives and take us into their fold.

The rituals and mantras used are in the siddha tradition of worship and are extremely effective.

The moola (seed) mantras and mantras for various other prayers / poojas are being given by the Mother, on as and when required basis.

All the sacred chants or Manthras like (Vinayagar Potri, Navagraha Potri, Archanai Malargal, Sivasakthi potrigal, Mandhirappaavai Potrigal, Thirumagal Potrigal, Sanibhagawan Potrigal, 1008 Potri Mandhirangal, Sakthi Kavasam, Vendudhal Kuuru, Parasakthi Kannigal) were received from the Divine voice of Mother. When these devotional chants are chanted at home, with purity and sincerity, blessings of the divine power, synonymous to that of chantings like Nayanmar’s Devaram, Alwar’s Dhivyaprabandham can be achieved.

The uniqueness of the temple is the sacred Mandhirappaavai Mother – the prime deity of Siddha’s, with beeja yantra and is beauty appears with four hands and bless the devotees.

In our temple it is believed that the 18 Siddhas are in yogic state before the Mandhirappaavai Mother, meditating upon the Divine Mother. Hence, the prayers in the temple are conducted silently without loud noises of the traditional bells or other musical instruments.

The temple is run, for 12 months at a stretch, by one of the eighteen siddhas, in turn.

The audit reports are verified by the Mandira Pavai once a quarter. Unbeleivable? But, it is true. The modus operandi is secret.

All devotees, irrespective of their caste, colour and creed, are permitted to do Abishekam of the Mother on all full moon days, subject to certain laid down (see Sakti Malai) conditions.

To redress the grievances of devotees visiting the temple, various yagnas (Known as Velvigal in Tamil) are preformed. The rules, sacred chants and procedures for performing these yagnas, which were originally translated into Tamil by Korakkar Siddhar, has been adopted and modified and given to us by the Divine Mother accordingly to suit modern times. As we follow the procedures as stipulated by the Divine Mother along with due faith and sincerity, all your ambitions will be fulfilled.

The temple serves as a one stop destination for resolving shortcomings and problems of life by the grace of Divine Mother Annai Aadhiparasakthi, relief from evil elements and enemies by the grace of sacred Mandhirappaavai Mother and Siddhargal, abundance in wealth by the grace of Goddess Mahalaskhmi and wisdom by the grace of Goddess Gnanadevi.

The Temple Personnel do not go around with printed receipts doing door to door canvassing. They ask Her and She provides them.

Before seeking the blessings of above mentioned deities, the blessings of Lord Ganesh should be sought by lighting 1 ghee lamp to avoid hindrances. The prayer procedures are explained in the forthcoming pages.
