Sri Balamurugan Adimai Swami of Ratnagiri temple, Vellore

Now-a-days the most frequent complaint is that there are no true saints and holy men. But the reality is that there are many. But they remain aloof and almost invisible to the modern men and media.

One such Swamiji is Sri Balamurugan Adimai Swami of  Ratnagiri Murugan temple in Vellore. He was the one who completely rebuilt the almost destroyed temple. More details can be found at www.ratnagiri.org

This swamiji observes complete silence since 1960s. He communicates to people with a slate and chalk. He is all the time clad in an half covered dhoti only and lives in the temple since 1960s. He is a great example of simplicity and devotion. Today the temple runs a hospital,school and performs several social service activities in that area.
