swamikal. Elaborate arrangements have been made Panmana Ashram. Swami
Nirmalananda Giri, NSS General Secretary P.K.Narayana Pannicker, Swami
Prajnananda Theerthapadar and others will attend the Maha Samadhi Samellan at
Panmana Ashram.

Swamikal was a great guru and realised soul like ancient rishes,
belived to be an incarnation of Lord Siva. Being a highly enlightened soul,
Swamiji had not only introduced a number of persons through out Kerala and
outside to spirituality but also protected and strengthened Sanathan Dharma and
ancient Indian Culture. He initiated number of spiritual seekers through out
Kerala and outside to various methods of spiritual practices.

 Swamiji was also a social reformer
and worked hard to free the society from blind beliefs and useless rituals.
Swamiji made through studies in the spiritual field with an emphasis to Vedas
and also in history, language and literature, philology and linguistics and in
various other subjects. 

 Chattambi Swamikal was a Saint more aptly described as an Avadoodha
lived in between 1853-1924, was a scholar with a multi-talented personality and
his divine powers were famous in all around the state of Kerala.

 When the Saint went to ‘ Maha samadhi’
[gave-up the mortal body], the body was buried in the conventional religious
system of ‘Samadhi’ and the ‘Samadhistanam’ became a temple with an Asramam for
service and spiritual practises

The book written by swamikal ‘Christhumatha Chedhanam’ exposed Christianity
at a time Missionaries were involved in rampant conversion in Kerala. This book
was instrumental in stopping the conversions to a great extend in Kerala and
still considered to be first of the kind literature which challenged the
foundations of Christianity in India.
