a.m., after bath, go daily to SURAT MOSQUE in RANGOON
(MIYANMAR). He after completing the JAMAT PRAYER by
standing in the first row regularly was noticed daily
by a elderly wise man. He was very old and well-versed

On an occasion of MILADUL NABI day, both met for the
first time. Both went on talking, had a sip of tea at
the CALCUTTA HOTEL in Rangoon (Myanmar), his (master)
paid off. Both continued to meet often at a particular
place. His master entertained him as a guest and he had
paid for the meals in advance. On ascertain from the
hotel proprietor came to know that he was a DIAMOND

Both of them walked conversing to old race course
near Rangoon Puthukkan Road. After conversation among
them master asked “DO YOU WANT IT TO BE LET
KNOWN?” regarding YOGAS. And in the same night
(7.1.1938) at 11.11 p.m. Ganavallal Paranjothi Mahan
received the UPADESHA from that ELDERLY MAN in the Race

size of a half coconut. He passed BLOOD IN URINE and
his body became emaciated, pale and anemic and his
health considerable deteriorated. All this will serve
as a warning to all the readers not the follow suit.
THE GREAT GURU
Before he was initiating i.e., while he was in
Rangoon town on some business on 08.07.1938 early
morning, a big man looking at Gnanavallal Paranjothi
Mahan, “YOU LOOK LIKE A GURU”. As a result,
he gained more of courage and entertained the firm idea
that he should impart the Upadesha of Gnana to those
who are thirsting for it. When he was in Burman, he
gave the Upadesha to some.
RETURNED TO INDIA
In September 1939, he came to India and underwent
many difficulties. Engaged a separate house on a rent
of Rs.7/- in Madurai. There some disciples conducted
the SABHAI, in the name of PARIPOORNA PARANJOTHIIN UYAR
GNANA SAHBAI. It was registered with the Government on
18./5.1942 under the Societies Act.
He came to Chennai on 23.08.1943 and created the
SABHAI on 31.10.1943. In as much as he considered very
important to the whole world and as this was fit to be
upheld by the whole world, a plot was purchased in
Chennai on 29.07.1946 and changed the name Sabhai as
SANCTUARY”. This changes were done when
he conducted “ALL MEIUNARVALARS CONFERENCE”
in the TIRUVALANJULI Shabai by way of adopting a
“RESOLUTION” in 02.05.1965 which was
unanimaously accepted by the disciples as explained
PARANJOTHI : The power that has
been discovered out of super Knowledge
UYAAR GANANA SABHAI : The Sabhai
thar has been discovered out of super knowledge
As correct instruction to be followed in common in
all countries are imparted in the matter of FOOD,
SLEEP, CLOTHING, WORK, CULTIVATION, GOVERNMENT, SCIENCE
and BLISSFUL STATE so that people of the world
according to their ability may live in peace the first
name was changed as “UNIVERSAL PEACE
In the ancient city of MADURAI in INDIA, in 1939 he
distributed a small pamphlet declared therein that all
persons, including GNANIS (yogis with super knowledge)
can come at once and receive the Upadesha
“KUNDALINI” to attain
“SELF-BLISS”. Seeing that pamphlet, the
YOGIS in MADURAI and nearby places, people who were
practising different kinds of Upadeshas, big people,
Vedantis, Educationists and people proficient in debate
met him. All sorts of questions and doubts were cleared
with correct answers without any hesitation by GPM.
They were fully satisfied and whole-heartedly took the
“DIKSHA” (Upadesha or Initiation) from him.
Among them, those who were thirsty after knowledge,
those who were following some gurus and those who were
practicing YOGAS took diksha from him and with a
greatful head did the Mahan all the service needed.
The Preliminary Trouble of the work that he
have taken up and its Reasons:
As he went to BURMA in 1919 at his young age and his
MOTHER TONGUE was “URUDU”. He felt to say
to others but in due course he used to write, read and
speak TAMIL. As such he was not able to read and write
Tamil frequently and had not gone through the books of
religion to understand the procedures, though he had
belief in all the religious of the world. In due
course, people began to understand him.
Due to political persons raising in political
persons/Government and old religious proofs,
investigations in PHILOSOPHY are made to public through
Government, the PHILOSOPHY of “KUNDALINI
YOGA” are slowly followed by people.
In reality this “KUNDALINI YOGA” is
higher but it is not spreading rapidly among the people
as TRUTH is made FALSE and FALSE is made TRUTH. Those
who approached him and raise several QUESTIONS. He used
to give suitable answers to them with HAPPINESS. So it
happened to him to increased research. As such he
realized the interior motives of the people.
PLEASURE IN POVERTY
He relinquished all his work, his relations,
WROTE A RELEASE BOND TO HIS RELIGIOUS PEOPLE,
in 1938 and lived in poverty with his wife, his grand
children. He lived in MADURAI in a CORNER, spending 2
ANNAS (0.12 paise) or 2 ½ ANNAS (0.15 PAISE) for his
family for livelihood daily and increase his activities
in good functioning of SABHAI.
He appreciated his wife’s
attitude/behaviour by cooperating with him. In
due course his disciples assisted him in cooperating
with him. Once he suffered for one square meal a day
has faded away due to his disciples gave
respect/affection/help. Therefore he said that he will
never forger them for their ATTITUDES/RESPECT/HELP.
This will never FADE and he declared that it will SHINE
Those who have served them and those who serve them
are many. Of these, two disciples are worth mentioning.
One is Sri ARAVAMUTHAM in Madras who
on 30.9.1943 got initiation became a GURU and
propagates his UPADESHAS. The second one is Sri.C.R. KOTHANDARAMAN, B.A., who got
initiation on 14.5.1944 and worked as General
Secretary. Both these have taken upon themselves till
their LIFE all responsibilities from the day of which
they joined the SABHAI.
Like them, there are many disciples men and women in
other countries too. As His great penance in
“KUNDALINI YOGA”. after all other practices
left him – the GREAT Ganavallal Paranjothi Mahan.
was able to writ in the BOOK “I-GOD”
(available in the Universal Peace Sanctuary, No.7/4,

after “HIS OWN WONDERFUL SIGHT”, by
crossing the, in His HIGHER KNOWLEDGE, IN HIM, HE SAW,
