Thirujnanasambandar Puja with Paramahamsa Nithyananda

This Puja celebrates Jnana Paal, the Enlightening Milk of the Cosmic Mother. This is a unique offering from Madurai Aadheenam, whose patron saint is the child-incarnation Thiru Jnanasambandar. The unique tradition of ‘Jnana Paal’ is kept alive, and a living happening at the Madurai Aadheenam even today by the direct blessings of the Guru Mahasannidhanams, the pontiffs of the Aadheenam. The scriptures say that as a baby at the innocent age of just 3, Thiru Jnanasambandar was once nourished by the ‘milk of Enlightenment’ from the Cosmic Mother herself. On drinking the milk, this child became enlightened, receiving the ‘Jnana Paal’, the ‘cup of the ultimate Truth, spiritual knowledge’. The Existence, the nature poured Her essence into Him, and He ripened fully to the Super Consciousness. In commemoration of this most sacred event unmatched in the history of our great vedic heritage, and as a symbolic offering of wisdom to the people, Nithyanandeshwara Sadhashiva Devasthanam offered the ‘Jnaanapaal’ or ‘Enlightening Milk’ (consecrated milk) to all visitors, pilgrims, and devotees at Bengaluru Aadheenam. The milk was energized by the divine grace of Paramahamsa Nithyananda to sow the seed of enlightenment in the person drinking it.
