  1. Ram,

    Thanks for giving a chance to read about Vallalar on Wiki today. The wiki link is (for the English readers of this photoblog).

    “Ramalinga Adigal’s disappearance on January 30, 1874

    Ramalingar raised the flag of Brotherhood on his one room residence Siddhi Vilakam[16] in Mettukuppam on October 22. He gave his last and most famous lecture, entreating his audience to undertake a spiritual quest and look into the “nature of the powers that lie beyond us and move us,” and asking them to meditate on the lighted lamp from his room, which he placed outside.

    Adigal on January 30, 1874, entered the room and locked himself and told his followers not to open it. He said that even if they did open it they would find nothing. His seclusion spurred many rumors, and the Government finally forced the doors open in May. The room was empty, with no clues. The Madras District Gazetteer published by the South Arcot District in 1906 records his disappearance”
