On the occasion of the 25th year silver jubilee , the Gnanalayam temple was renamed as Agathiyar Kovil - Gnanalayam. Along with this, a panchaloka statue of Sri Agathiyar Maharishi in the form of "Sri Gnana Skanda Agatheeswarar" was installed at the temple. All those who seek to connect with the energies of Sri Agathiyar are invited to come meditate at the temple to feel his presence.

The Wisdom temple (Gnanalayam) at Pondicherry, India is a place where Divine Celestial beings have descended to provide Soul Liberation due to the change in Yuga (Aeons) and collect the seeds of the soul atoms for the Golden Age. The divine beings provide scientific details about the Soul atom (space molecule) in the Human mid-brain, paving way for a far deeper understanding of the metaphysical secrets of human life which have never before been revealed in such clear and concise manner.

The Wisdom Temple, established by the Sadhguru Sri Parimala Devi and now under the guidance of Gnanaguru Dr. Balaji Raju, was constructed in the year 1997 and inaugurated on 18th January 1998. In October 2008, the Ever Burning Lamp (AnayaaDeepam) was ignited at the temple.

One of the most extraordinary happening in this Kali Yuga, a Light bridge was created by the Sadhguru Sri Parimala Devi at the Wisdom Temple (Gnanalayam) to connect Easan (God particle) at the centre of the almighty Sun with the core of Mother Earth. The Wisdom Temple is filled and powered by innumerable higher divine beings who descended through this Light Bridge to dwell in the Ever Burning Lamp. These divine beings include the Saptha Rishis, Lord Murugar & his army of Divine Beings, Goddess energies & Sakthis, countless divine ascended masters, cosmic beings & siddhars from all faiths including Sri Mahavatar Babaji, Sri Shirdi Sai Baba, and Lord Parasurama. In November 2022, Lord Shiva in the form of VanaIshwar descended into the Ever Burning Lamp at the temple to spread the energies of Love & Compassion to the entire world and complete the Kali yuga & establish Satya yuga.

It has always been the endeavour of our Sadhguru to save all the souls from the inevitable destruction that happens at the end of every chaturyuga by liberating them from the unceasing cycle of life and death. This is done through various sacred initiations and the process of Soul Liberation. Those who obtain initiation (deeksha) from Gnanalayam are assured to be liberated from further births in this Kali yuga by Sage Sri Agathiyar Maharishi. This is done by merging the individual Light Bridges of the initiated souls with the Light Bridge of Gnanaguru Dr. Balaji Raju by the Higher Divine beings in the Temple.

Our Sadhguru Sri Parimala Devi, a divine incarnation of the Adi Shakthi, is also the manifestation of Goddess Sri Renuka Devi. As per Sage Agathiyar Maharishi, towards the end of every Kali yuga, an ascended goddess will be assigned with the task to redeem mankind from destruction. In these end times of Kali yuga, Goddess Renuka Devi has been bestowed with this divine work. Having been ordained with the task of liberating a minimum of 18 circles of human souls, our Sadhguru merged with Eswara on 14th September 2020 after liberating 9 circles of souls. Though her physical form is no more with us, she continues to provide guidance as a divine light being to continue her mission to liberate more circles and redeem mankind through Gnanaguru Dr. Balaji Raju

Hailed as an incarnation of Lord Murugar by Sage Sri Agathiyar Maharishi, our Gnanaguru Dr. Balaji Raju now has been given the mighty task of helping humans step into the Golden Age through the path of divine wisdom and universal love by anchoring the energies of Lord Shiva on Earth. Bestowed with the soul energies and power of Lord Shiva, Gnanaguru Dr. Balaji Raju has been carrying forward the mission of Guru Amma by providing initiations (deeksha). Interested souls are welcome to seek our Guru’s blessing and the grace of Lord Shiva himself to attain Soul Liberation by receiving the Shiva Deeksha. Initiations will be available to the public, both at the temple in Pondicherry and at other places/online (as per divine guidance that will be received) from January 2023.

Over the last few years, the Saptha Rishis, Siddhars and Lord Murugar have been communicating with our Gnanaguru Dr. Balaji Raju every day through thought manifestation. The messages channelled by them have been published in the form of books, notable amongst them are the four vedic scriptures given by Lord Murugar. Some of these texts have also been translated into English as instructed by Lord Murugar. Please visit the Books section in this website for more details. The short messages that we received from the Divine beings have also been published as PDF documents under the Resources section. Some of the messages channelled from the Divine beings are available in our YouTube Channel as well.

During her life, our Guru Amma also strived to cure mankind of the various harmful diseases of the Kali yuga. For the same, she enlisted the help of the Siddhar KalangiNathar and Siddhar Bogar to provide rare herbal remedies for various diseases and ailments. Soon, under the guidance of Gnanaguru Dr. Balaji Raju, these sacred herbal medicines will be made available to the world.

Mother Earth is presently renovating herself which is the reason for the diseases and calamities striking the planet today. We are at the end of Kali yuga and Lord Murugar and Sage Agathiyar Maharishi have warned that if human beings do not liberate their souls, they will perish. Liberation is the only solution to free ourselves from the clutches of maya, karma and ego. We cordially invite everyone to get connected to Gnanalayam irrespective of their religion, caste or country to receive the blessings from Gnanaguru Dr. Balaji Raju and understand the true purpose of Life.
