When it comes to temple architecture in South Bharath (India), the Vima:na Go:pura (structure over inner sanctum) is a beautiful key element. At the upcoming ‘Statue of Equality’, we will see 108 beautiful Vi:mana Go:pura:s signifying the Deity of each of those 108 temples using the intricate architectural skill of our artisans.

Out of the 108 Vima:na Go:pura:s, 12 of them are complete. Another 4 are more than 80% complete and 1 has started.

The 12 temples are:

    • Thiruvallikeni
    • Thiruneermalai
    • Thirukkadigai
    • Thiruvayothi
    • Sree Naimisaranyam
    • Thiruvadamadurai
    • Thiruvaipadi
    • Thirukkurungudi
    • Thirucheeravaramangai
    • Thiruvaigundam
    • Thiruppullani
    • Thirumeyyam

We also want to share with you detailed update on the construction progress of the of the 108 Divya Desams (i.e. excluding the vima:na go:purams). Use the colour coded index to know the progress status of the Divya De:sam.

Ramanujacharya had shared immense knowledge about the true nature of a soul (ourselves), the nature, and the core cause of our existence in these bodies. We say, ‘thank you’ to someone who helped us by loaning money at the time of a need, or sharing information that is crucial for our task, or anything small or big.

For someone who shared the knowledge of ‘who we are’ and ‘what our ultimate purpose is’, what can we offer as a ‘thank you’? We can only lead life accordingly and spread his word. He spent his entire lifetime living righteously driven by ultimate knowledge of the self! If we follow his lead, it will not only benefit the human kind, but the entire nature will blossom back with right spirit.

This is exactly what Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji is working for: Spreading righteous living driven by true knowledge of the self! The 108 centres of inspiration (the Divya De:sams) convey this knowledge. Ramanujacharya inspires us with the kindest and the most submissive heart. Let the wisdom he shared spread through this project and benefit the entire humanity and nature! Such acharya is a treasure to preserve in the hearts of everyone!
