  Temple History:

People derive divine experience both internally and externally.  He never expected Kanchi seer would mention him as such one noble soul.  When he went to Kanchi, Periaval asked His people to call him saying “the gentleman near that pillar is an elightened soul, please call him here”. 


Yogi Ramsurathkumar was born on December 1, in the year 1918 to Ram Dutt Kunvar and Srimathi Kusum Devi in Nardara a village on the banks of Ganga.  The name means ‘Love to Ram’.  While an infant, he threw a rope on a sparrow which died unable to bear the weight of he rope.  The incident terribly pained the little boy Ramsurathkumar.  He began to think of life and death and came to Kasi seeking an answer.  He then met Sri Ramana Maharshi in Tiruvannamalai and Sri Aravindar in Puducherry and went to Pappa Ramdas Swami in Kerala, who taught him “Ohm Sri Ram, Jairam, Jai Jai Ram.”


Chanting this mantra continuously, He felt as if he was born again.  He finally settled at Tiruvannamalai.  Visited many holy places.   He simply identified himself as a beggar only.  As he was carrying a coconut shell and a palm fan, he came to be known as Visiri Samiyar, an ascetic with a palm fan.


He spent his days in Tiruvannamalai Girivalam path, railway stations and streets for 18 years.  Later, as desired by his devotees, he built this ashram.  A three time Annadhanam is still maintained in the ashram.  A reception hall in pyramid shape, the Shivalinga and the marble statue speak volumes of his glory.


“As you turn back when called by name, so turns back the Lord if you call your Dad, and will fulfill your wishes” was his teaching to the believers.  He said that no special prayers were necessary if one truly calls Him.  Yogi Ramsurathkumar shed His mortal coil in the Tamil month Masi (February-March) on a Dwadsi day in the new moon fortnight. There is a marble idol of Yogi Ramsurathkumar in the Veda Patasala made in Italy just before his end.
