Shri Kumbalavalai Ganesha Temple

This is the original Deity that inspired Gurudeva's vision for the Pancha Mukha Ganapati in Mauritius.

The priest of the Shri Kumbalavalai Ganesha Temple and the priest of the Pasupateeswarar Sivan Koyil that is on the Subramuniya Ashram Land in Alaveddy are brothers! In His Book “Loving Ganesha,” Gurudeva said in Chapter 4: In Science and Beyond, “Once Lord Ganesha appeared to me as I was slumbering in a half-waking state close to the Kumbalavalai Ganesha Temple in Alaveddy, northern Sri Lanka, in the home of the Chettiar family that adopted me in 1948. He pointed out that the gardener had unnecessarily broken a branch off a tree while pruning, and that this small mishap had immediately affected the whole universe. When I was trying to buy the original building for the Sri Subramuniya Ashram in the village of Alaveddy, much opposition was offered from the owners, but finally we prevailed. Soon after, I had an early morning vision in which Ganesa was sitting on my knee as the baby elephant, Pillaiyar. With His soft face pressed against my cheek, He said, “We have accomplished the unaccomplishable.” This showed me that if you forge ahead for a good cause, even when all the forces of the universe align themselves against you, including society itself, you will succeed. It’s a little like a great elephant walking through the forest, clearing all barriers for those who follow. Such blessings come to those who follow Ganesha. Slowly the forces will clear, and all benefit from His grace.”
