Welcome to Poondi Swamiyar Temple
As per Sasthras, Brahmasthithi is the topmost and final stage in spirituality. According to Sri Adhi Shankara, a Brahmavarishtan (Avathoothar) would either be like a child or mentally affected or haunted. It is rare to have all the features described in Sasthras. That too, it is rarest to be like Poondi Mahan, who was hailed as 'Samrat'.
Once Kanchi Maha Periyavar Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi Swamigal, who was worshipped by thousands as God in human form, said, "we are like bulbs. But Poondi Swami is like transmitter. These bulbs will not glow unless that transmitter is switched on." The Kanchi Sankaracharya would become happy if anyone speak about Poondi Swami or tell Him that they met Him. "Let us pray for the blessings of Poondi Swami," He said once.
He (Poondi Swami) is the topmost", said Sri Gnanananda Swami, when He was askeed about Poondi Swami. Likewise, Sri Sankarananda Swami, Sri Poornananda swami (Salem), Sri Padha Swami (Brindavanam), Sri Kirupananda Variyar and others had the darshan of Poondi Swami.
