Vaasthu Nivarthi Peedam

Why is there a vaasthu benediction here? The complex came up at intervals, as intuition and divine messages came forth to Swamigal. The physical construct of the peedam therefore does not comply entirely with the vaasthu laws.

The first physician - Lord DANVANTRI

(Dhyaana Mandapam for all irrespective of caste and creed) Lord Danvantri is considered the 12th avatar of Maha Vishnu. This is the main healing energy in the peedam.

Even the statue has been sculpted to resemble Lord Danvantri.                                 Read More
