Tavatiru Balamurugan Adimai's own account (cont)

Sample of Rathinagiri Tavatiru Bala Murugan Adimai's handwriting

From that day onwards I have been observing maunam (silence) and doing my prayers. Now when visitors come to the temple, I am offering them food and hospitality. Now you can see the change in status of the temple. It is not I but the Lord or His Grace (that makes this possible).

Now Rathinagiri Bala Murugan Temple has become one of the famous and notable temples of South India. And it will become one among the Padai Veedus shortly.

In my life I feel happy about the Temple. What inspiration on that day 20th March 1968, has been fulfilled by HIM.

This granite temple cost Rs. 20 lakhs during 1977 to 1984 alone, and other works are now in progress. The cost of temple construction over the past 33 years has exceeded Rs 240 lakhs, and over 400 lakhs including the other buildings and projects.

The Kumbhabhishekam alone will cost Rs 25 lakhs to perform next year, plus 15 lakhs for pending work to be finished before then. Within six months, I have to mobilise 40 lakhs."
