“O my leader, praised and worshiped by all leaders! Even today, my mind, my stabilizing wisdom and myself are having our duties performed in terms of sympathy for fellow-beings. What shall I do? My life is none other than this sympathy. The one is not clearly distinct from the other at all. If this stabilizing sympathy goes off how can I live? My life itself will go off with it. This is clear to your Divine comprehension.”- Thiruarutpa

According to Path of Suddha Sanmarga, the prime aspects of human life should be love connected with charity and spritual practice leading to achievement of pure knowledge. Both of these aspects were embodied by Vallalar into two buildings in small South Indian town Vadalur.

The first building is called Sathya Dharmasalai. The food has been served there daily to the hungry and needy people since its opening in 1867. This service is still running with voluntary donations of the devotees upto these days. It thus serves a meaningful purpose and at the same time inspires the devotees to start similar activities at their places.

Swami established this Sathya Dharmasalai for the feeding of the poor and the hungry inviting the people to express to their fellow-beings and creatures compassion which is the Grace of one’s soul for meriting the Greater Grace of the Divine for their realization.

The second building is Gnana Sabai – Hall of Wisdom. This building symbolizes the human body and it is an inspiration and signpost for those who want to practically follow the Path of Suddha Sanmarga.

While the first building,Sathya Dharmasalai represents the fulfillment of bodily needs, then Gnana Sabai symbolizes the fulfillment of spiritual needs of a man. Both buildings together refer to the both aspects of a human being, physical and spiritual and to their mutual relations.

At the inaugural function of Sathya Dharmasalai the Swami got out his venerable and impressive treatise on compassion towards all living beings – Jeevakarunya Ozhukkam.

Our Swami protrayed the four purusharthas or essential aims in the path of Suddha Sanmarga in Dharmasalai for making the people to aware about it. The four purusharthas or essential aims are:

There are four disciplines for achieving them. They are the disciplines of senses and body, mind and its faculties, and the disciplines of the jeeva and of anma, the spirit.

(A) The discipline of senses are of two kinds namely of the Jnanendriya, the senses of knowledge and of Karmendriya, the senses of action (i.e., relating to body). These can be mentioned thus:

(B) The discipline of mind and its faculties

(C) The discipline of jeeva (psychic discipline)

To treat and deal with all men and women as one’s own equal self or selves, irrespective of differences in caste, religion. philosophy, stage of life or ashrama, traditional heredity and nobility of family, adherence to scriptures, nationality and low or high social status etc.

(D) The discipline of anma (the spirit)

This is to become integrally the infinite and universal All-existence, because the Divine Himself dwells within all living beings from ant to elephant (and man) as the subtle Master and as the supreme Lord, making jeevatma, soul and self of our being, as its field of play of knowledge (Tiru Sabhai). By following the disciplines thus, one can realise the said rare goals (purusharthas); unity will naturally result where there is the identy of knowledge.
