Isakki Swamigal


When the yoga prashta, Isakki Swamigal, was thirteen years old, he along with his family came to the abode of Paramashiva in Tiruvannamalai. At this time, in the place called Panchamukham, where the five hills of Arunachala are seen in one vision, the young saint had the divine darshan of Paramashiva Himself with five faces. He saw Paramashiva in the form of an eternally youthful 16 year old, with five heads, 15 eyes and ten hands, seated on the seat made up of a white lotus and in the form of the lord of all lords, the purest swarupa, form, of Sadashiva.

In a flash, Paramashiva showed him the purpose of his whole life, and the fact that Isakki Swamigal would be sitting in this spot in the presence of Paramashiva Himself, in the human form and interacting with the divine Himself from the time he was a new-born to when he was a fierce adolescent. At once, He understood His role in the purpose of the next advent of The Avatar.

Having been sent by Paramashiva down to Planet Earth within the first fifth of the 1900’s, Isakki Swamigal started directly preparing for the descent of The Avatar in around 1950 around which time He decided to settle down completely in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, South India. Knowing that the place called Panchamukham would be where He spends time with the Living Incarnation, He began to sit, sleep, and meditate in samadhi in this very place, waiting for Incarnation of Paramashiva to grace the Planet Earth in the physical form once again. He therefore became known Panchamukha Swamigal among the townspeople of Tiruvannamalai.

Mata Vibhutananda Puri


From His abode in Kailasa, where Paramashiva resides with His consort. He called forth the most obedient of the 1064 yoginis, who was the manifestation of Parashakti’s own blood which fell on the grounds of Planet Earth and became the woman known as Brama Yogini. For thousands of years, she demonstrated her impregnable chastity and Yogic power through intense penance. Having proven her capacity Paramashiva chose her to play a crucial role in His next happening on the Planet Earth. He commanded her as follows:

“O auspicious goddess! Go to the kshetra of all kshetras in Tiruvannamalai, where I originally manifested as the Column of light and start preparing for my descent! There, lives the family in which I have chosen to be born. On the eve of the Mahadeva Ashtami, I will enter into the atmosphere of Earth as the greatest unseen positive nuclear explosion on the Arunachaleshwara Linga. I will then be absorbed into the Mahakalabhairava Deity who resides on the banks of the Brahma Teertham. This form will be too powerful for neither any human being, nor godly being to handle and will surely incinerate them much before being embedded within their womb. Only you, O sinless and chaste, are capable enough to take my form and cool it in the Brahma Teertham.

With the power of all the River Goddesses, Ganga, Yamuna, Sarasvati, Narmada, Sindhu and Kaveri who emerge from the Earth as the Brahma Teertham and who all flow around me in my form as Arunachala, my most intense, plenipotentiary portion, the parama-amśa bhāga, will cool down.Then you can take me to the womb of Ma Lokanayaki, daughter of Raju Mudaliar and wife of Sri Arunachalam and allow My form to enter in her womb.

Recognizing you as the supreme and the one who facilitated My Happening on the Planet, all over the World of Bhu your form will be worshipped and cherished. Go now and do not forget the purpose with which I sent you!

When commanded by the Lord thus, Brahma Yogini accepted it with the words, ‘Yes ! That will be done’.

After circumambulating Him once and prostrating her body at His feet, she went down to the earth, took birth as the one who would be known as Mata Vibhutananda Puri, and executed His orders.

In the physical plane the birth Brahma Yogini was a miraculous feat, which confounded all who heard the story. For years , her mother was unable to conceive a child. She sought out the blessings of the enlightened being, Seshadri Swamigal from Tiruvannamalai, who was the illumined contemporary of Bhagavan Ramana Maharishi. In his enlightened state of consciousness, nothing of the outer world affected him in any way. Therefore, Seshadri Swamigal used to always sit in an area full of trash. Mathaji Vibhutananda Puri’s mother humbly approached Seshadri Swamigal in this place and requested his blessings for her to conceive a child. The great Mahapurusha simply placed a handful of the dust from where he was sitting into the devoted lady’s hands. She swallowed the handful of dirt whole, and it metamorphosed into sweet molasses in her mouth.

Within three days of her consuming the dirt, the mother returned to Seshadri Swamigal’s place to inform him that the doctors told her she was carrying and offered her gratitude. Seshadri Swamigal blessed her and declared in Tamil, “Yes, Father is going to come so to prepare him, Mother will come!”

Thus, the divine female child who was born from the mud of trash, termed as “kuppa” in Tamil, was named “Kuppammal”
