Changing from a Negative Mental Attitude
With all my situations in life, I was left wondering, “why me always”. Without any expectations that this negative attitude should change, I joined the course. My approach towards life has changed, this course has helped me to understand life better and shed light on Universal energy. Particularly helped me to stay centred and retain inner peace to manage stress. I am now able to focus on things and my concentrating ability has improved. My emotional and physical well-being has improved, gaining a positive approach in all my situations.
I thank Nalini Amma for introducing me to this course and L.L.S. Manigandan Ayya for his thought-provoking explanations in this beautiful life journey called “Meiyiyal Payanam”.

My Journey since my 7th Grade
It’s been 6 years of journey with our guruji L.L.S Manigandan Ayya. I joined the children’s class, when I was in my 7th standard, which was fun and very interactive. Gives me immense pleasure to share my journey with him these years. During the children’s class I was able to find out the talents in me and learn new skills which defines our character. Guruji’s class has always been a stress buster for me. Being in his class, I have been able to discover myself.
Which part of the “Life” puzzle will I fit into?
Before mediation, life and everything involved in it seemed like a puzzle, with all the clues scattered everywhere, I was really confused as to what or where do I fit in, which problem should I solve first. Life was confused, stressful and chaotic. In 2019, one of my friends introduced me to L.L.S Manigandan Ayya, I wasn’t expecting that he will be my master/guru who I will look upon. Later, as I was attending classes, I couldn’t believe that such a person could exist, Ayya thought me unique techniques and introduced me to meditation. This was the beginning to a lifetime of wonder and amazing experiences under his guidance as well as his successors. Things changed dramatically after this, it was like I was distancing away from the problem and looking at it from neutral point of view. Life looks sorted as mind becomes calm and you feel at peace. Meditation has become a practical way to experience states of new beginning and an inner evolution that is intangible. Not merely something to believe in but to realize. After some days, I could realize the change in me and my approach to life was positive. I felt I was attracting positive vibes and was feeling happy. Meditation become part of my daily practice. But more than anything, it was the guidance of the master himself, who took me under his wing and was able to transmit all states I dreamt about and far more. Through these years, I have experienced internal changes that reflect externally too. Most of all the experience is really the presence left which cannot be compared to anything.
My Ghathi (Higher Yogic Technique) Experience
When I got my Ghathi I did not know its magnanimity. In the early stages when I started practising Ghathi , there was no mind or body suffering. Even when the body was working hard, my mind was always at peace. And when I am in Ghathi – a river flows. I experience the stone inside a flowing river. The stone inside the river simply watches the flow of the water on the top. I experience the same. I see my life’s happening in the same way.

Pradeepa, M.Sc Psychology, Erode
I am Pradeepa from Erode, Tamil Nadu. I am studying M.Sc psychology. I am attending the atman class for 1 year. I had no idea of the class initially, but still I continued to attend. In this class our Guru L.L.S.Manikandan Ayya takes both theory and meditation with some basic exercises. Ayya makes sure that everyone in the class understands clearly about what he had thought for us. By doing meditation and exercise there are a lot of changes in my thinking and my body attained weight loss. Last month Ayya introduced a practice called “Thradakam” which is to be practiced before 6am in the morning. I done this practice at 5 am. I am enjoying the meditation. I feel good and I will sleep at 12 in the night but now-a-days I go to bed at 10pm. I used to have non-veg but past 6 months my intake of non-veg is very less. I had very hyper tension but after this practice my anger level has come down. When I say that I haven’t done the practice regularly, Ayya don’t say anything but encourages me to do better. I really want to thank Meena ma. She only asked me to join the class. She also encourages me to do regularly.

Guru means Sathiyam (Truth). Guru is within everyone’s self and we never realize this truth due to our ignorance. We need a constant support of an enlightened soul (Guru) to instruct us to realize this truth and transform one’s self as a guru.
The Guru is the Creator, Preserver, Transformer and he is a supreme being and who in the form of unbroken glory pervades the universe of the moving and non-moving beings. Guru restores the sight of the individuals, who dwell in the darkness of ignorance. Guru revealed the Highest State which pervades all that is fixed or moving, all that exist whether animate or inanimate.
Guru helps us to realize the Supreme consciousness that pervades the entire universe and all that moves and stays therein. The guru is the intelligence, the Eternal, and the serene, transcending space, untouched by defilement and transcending the subtle aspects of sound.
Guru is established in Knowledge and Power, who is adorned with the garland of wisdom and who grants both worldly prosperity and liberation.
The guru will be giving the sacred knowledge of the Self, burns up the bonds of the accumulated karma of many births. The guru is the world-teacher, and Guru help to realize that my Self is the same Self that is in all beings.
I am Jegadeesh who is working as Director marketing in Bangaldesh, Thank you for your guidance. I appreciate your help providing a good community. You have motivated me to be a better person. I will continue to follow your teaching, hope to achieve the same level of peace and enlightenment that you have.you inspired me to trust myself and always said that yoga is a lifelong process, not merely a physical excess, and as a result , I gained the motivation to keep going.I really appreciate your guidance and support.
My journey with our Guru – Ayya, has been an awesome experience. When I joined our weekly classes, my expectations were to have a peaceful life and be happy. As the classes have progressed, I felt that being happy and peaceful in life is nothing compared to what I have got to experience with Ayya’s guidance. In one of our classes Ayya talked about ‘Life – primary particle’ – that life is in each and every single thing and there is no such thing as a ‘Lifeless’ thing in the existence. That made me think and see everything differently. Until that time, I was looking at a tree, a table, and people differently, now everything and everyone are the same. End of that class I thought ‘this is it, there is nothing else to know’. Thankfully I was wrong, with Ayya’s guidance we explored about the universal
energy, solar system, karma, harmony, nature, ego, and meditation on the five elements and the solar system and much more. Now I sit in every class and eagerly wait for more secrets to be revealed about anything and everything and nothing with our Ayya. We are slowly exploring and experiencing how to live our lives harmoniously along with nature, connected with everything and everyone and one day become and be everything as our class name ‘Vishwarupam’.

1.Self realization is the core of our birth.
2.Self–the mirror of both inner and outer world
3. The mirror is… selfless service which breaks the ‘ I’ in me.
4. The Oracle (sayings) of the Guru and Guru thyself evolve us to the highest state of nothingness.
5. Nothingness is a divine feeling that is beyond words.
6. Nothingness is a state of aloneness, — a wholesome bliss.

Since 20 years back, my desire for spirituality was increasing. I was in search of a right Guru to follow his principles. During that time, I found him in a spiritual class. In that class he put forth several good spiritual questions to us. We had answered whatever we knew. From our answers, he raised even more many deep questions to us. He then cleared all our doubts through his teachings. From the renderence of his speech and knowledge, I realised him to be my Guru. At that point, I strongly believed and felt fortunate to have him lead me for the rest of my spiritual journey. From his thoughts and philosophies, I could see several Yogis and Siddhas in him. I felt that True Wisdom could be enlightened on us only through him. The man, who inherited himself with Love, Simplicity and Warmth is none other than our Gnana Guru, Sri.LLS.Manigandan Ayya.
XEI bow to him.

When I newly joined Meditation classes I was aggressive and short tempered. In case someone scolds me i used to take that seriously and start weeping. After attending Meditation classes I started observing so many changes in my way of thinking. If someone scolds me now without my mistake i am keeping myself calm and trying to bring the situation under control. Un necessary thoughts has been reduced and started thinking broad. Trying to be peaceful all the time. I am a Non Tamilan. I am thanking heartfully to the each and every member of KARPAGADARU Trust for helping me to understand the classes. Thank you so much ManikantanAyya for your blessing. Manikandan Ayya..???. He is such a well disciplined knowledge able person. I have never seen such a person in my life.

Perspective on life has changed completely
Ever since I have joined this class and begun my journey with Guru LLSM, my perspective on life has changed completely.
I used to struggle with negative thoughts and deal with anxiety all the time but I feel very blessed and positive now. My mindset has changed and I have started looking at things differently and beginning to see a silver lining in every cloud. Also, my gratitude towards life has grown immensely, which is helping me build confidence, stronger relationships and stay connected with nature.
Not only my mental and spiritual senses are heightened by the grace of Guru LLSM, but I have been learning so much about this universe, the reason for our existence and the laws of nature via this course. I personally feel every class with Guru LLSM as equal to reading a new book.
And I truly believe this course is a turning point in my life.
I am eternally grateful to Guru LLSM for taking me as his shishya (student) and Ms.Renukadevi for introducing me to this course.
