Sri Chaitanyananda (Aiya), the Temple founder and Peetadhipati, explains that the Temple is a “Sakti Pradhana Sivalayam” dedicated to the Divine Mother Rajarajeswari.
Sri Ganapati, Sri Rajarajeswari and Lord Shiva reside here.
The influence of the Saiva tradition can be seen in the many beautiful murtis of Ardhanariswara, Siva Nataraja with Sivakami, and the Nayanmar saints, the regular performance of Pradosha Puja, and the celebration of the major Saiva festivals. The Sri Vidya tradition is expressed in the centrality of Sri Rajarajeswari, the use of Lalita Sahasranama and Khadgamala Stotras, the performance of Sri Chakra Puja or Homam on Purnima days, and the celebration of Navaratri Brahmotsavam.
The Sri Vidya is a Temple where the liberating knowledge of Divine Mother and Lord Siva flows freely towards all, and all are invited to receive divine blessings, to learn about Sri Vidya and Saiva Siddhantam, and to travel on the path that leads to the ocean of divine consciousness, love and bliss that is our beloved Rajarajeswari Amma.
