Tanjore Big Temple - Part 1

Siddhar Karuwooraar who built the Thanjavur Big Temple

Of all the Temples of Indhu Religion, the Thanjavur Big Temple alone has the longest historical background in this Indian sub-continent. This temple was built as a great revolutionary temple in architecture, temple science as well as Divine field. Particularly, this temple was built as one of the two novel temples in the fourth Yugam of Kaliyan Yugam in order to compensate for the losses and damages that happened to the Indhu Religion which is the Siddha Philosophy given by Pathinensiddhars in Tamil. Of the two temples that were built using a revolutionary and newer divine technology, one was Karur Pasupatheesuvarar Temple and the other one was this Thanjavur Big temple.

Note:- There has been a written theory in scriptures that whenever there happens a downfall for Indhu Religion, Temple towers could be built immediately above the sanctum sanctorum to receive the celestial cosmic powers and protect the Indhu Religion as a whole.

According to this theoretical information, His Holiness the 10th Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathi (1st century BCE) began to construct the Pasupatheesuvarar Temple on the banks of the Amaravathi River in Karur in Tamilnadu. He did this in order to compensate for the damages happened to the Indhu Religion due to the North Aryans' interference and the destruction happened to the Lunar Dynasty Pandiya Kingdom of Indhu Religion. This Pasupatheesuvarar Temple happened to be a small temple.

But during the period of His Holiness the 11th Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathi (8th century CE), the Indhu Religion had got damaged to a greater extent. In order to recover the Indhu Religion and bring back the Tamils' Kingdom as Divine Kingdom, His Holiness formed the Kingdom of Solar Dynasty with Thanjavur as its capital. For that purpose there was an immediate necessity to build a very big temple having the tower above the sanctum sanctorum. His Holiness the 11th Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathi took up this great task and completed it successfully.

The first temple got constructed between 72 BCE and 47 BCE in a slow and steady pace using all types of Divine Arts and a variety of scriptures by His Holiness the 10th Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathi Siddhar Amaraavathiyaatrangarai Karuwooraar. After Him, Naayanmaars, Aazhwaars, Pathiyaars, Sathiyaars, Sithiyaars, Muthiyaars, 48 types of Siddhars, Pathinensiddhars, ... took birth successively in Tamilnadu to protect the Indhu Religion.

The core Pathinensiddhars gave this earth the Divine Tamil Language and the Indhu Religion that could breath life into all the lifeless objects. They only arranged to protect Tamil Language, Indhu Religion and Tamils in all the Four Yugams by way of 48 Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis who would emanate one after the other through the Four Yugams.

The Tamil language, Indhu Religion and Tamils lost their status and values only in the fourth Yugam namely Kaliyan Yugam. To recover them from this downfall, the 10th Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathi took birth in the first century BCE.

There was a need for only 9 Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis in all the first three Yugams comprising of 17,28.000 years + 12,90,000 years + 8,64,000 years = 38,82,000 years. So, in the long period of thirty-eight lakhs and eighty-two thousand years only 9 Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis emanated. In the fourth Yugam of Kaliyan yugam spanning to 4,32,000 years thirty-nine (39) Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis would emanate. Because, in the Kaliyan Yugam only the Divine Tamil Language, Indhu Religion and the Tamils would face a lot of difficulties, complications and damages. That is why the Divine Testament has been ordered to make 39 Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis emanate in this Kaliyan Yugam alone.

According to this Divine plan one could infer that in the Kaliyan Yugam alone a lot of unresolvable complications, difficulties, damages ... would take place repeatedly in plenty. These could not be solved by anyone other than the Divinators. That is why the Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis, who emanate time and again, rejuvenate all the temples around the country depending on the necessity. (Here temple is a common word that denotes 48 types of worshipping places according to the Temple Science maintained by the Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis.)

In order to make Divinators take birth in all the human races in this world; the Pathinensiddhars have made arrangements in all the languages of the world to have prayer verses that have the power of giving the divine energy; They also have arranged to construct places of worship that act as springs of divine energy in all the countries of this world. Through these arrangments, 48 types of divinators would take birth in all the linguistic races of this world. Yet the birth of a divinator in a particular race depends on the maturity levels attained by that race, country and its language. That is why, the Tamil language, the Siddha Philosophy alias the True Indhuism and the Tamil land are producing 48 types of divinators continually depending on the needs.

The Tamil language is the mother tongue of the Pathinensiddhars who rule all the celestial space; The Siddha Philosophy alias the True Indhuism happens to be the native religion of the Pathinensiddhars themselves. The Tamil land is chosen as their native country by the Pathinensiddhars themselves. Thus the 108 types of Thiruppathis, 243 types of Sathi Peedams and 1008 types of Seevalayams have been created by Pathinensiddhars as the executive offices of this great, rare Divine Services Plan.

Therefore Pathinensiddhars can alone inspect, repair, rejuvenate and remove the compications created by evil magicians to these executive offices namely the 48 types of worshipping places.

Thus, even though the Pathinensiddhars who emanate from time to time perform these repair services; only when Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis come to the earth, all the complications, damages and destructions that happened to these 48 types of places of worship would be completely eradicated. In addition to these, the sub offices of these 48 types of places of worship - namely the 48 types of Vettaveli Karuvarais, 48 types of Karuvarais and 48 types of Vazhipaattu nilaya Karuvarais would also be taken care of in terms of strengthening their divine sources by the Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis.

In fact, the Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis would take up this work of rejuvenating the temples as their primary duty.

These Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathis have to work in order to remove all the ills and evils in the materialistic world as well as the Divine world. For this sole purpose, each Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathi constructs a very powerful new temple that could support His services by rendering a steady source of divine power. This new temple would also be built based on the Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathi's learnings, experiences and achievements. The Thanjavur Big Temple was one such a powerful temple built by His Holiness the 11th Pathinensiddhar Peedaathipathi, Gurumahaa Sannidhaanam, Sitthar Kaaviriyaatrangarai Karuwooraar.

It is basically a Sathi Ilinga Temple. His Holiness also formed another temple at Kangai Konda Cholapuram but left it in a thatched hut form. It is basically a Sivalinga temple. In addition to these two temples, His Holiness constructed a lot of Ilinga temples in many names at many places in the country. His Holiness also trained Divinators having 48 types of divine degrees in order to make the public use these temples for ever.

His Holiness also trained many people selecting only those who have interest in public welfare. He trained them to become Siddharadiyaan, Siddharadiyaal, Siddharadiyaar. Through these disciples His Holiness conducted the five types of fire worships to form new Divine Service Centres, Schools of Wisdom and Meditation Centres to provide divinity as a practically usable one to the public.

This great Divine Services Plan is the one that has been protecting the divine nature of the Tamil Race, the Divine Tamil and the very divinely Indhu Religion. This Divine Services Plan is the one that has been protecting the shape, life and actions of the Indhu Religion.

If only the Divine Services Plan was not in place, the entire Tamil race would have been destroyed; the Tamil language itself would not be in existence now; the temples of Indhu Religion would not have been visible there now. But the Divine Services Plan has been protecting all those pertaining to the Tamils true Indhuism.

Editors' note: From December 2019 till February 2020 there were a lot of discussions about the Consecration ceremony of Thanjavur Big Temple. Particularly about the language to be used during the ceremony was the much debated item. This post will definitely clarify the basic doubts in that controversy for those who analyze the situation in an unbiased manner.
