NEW DELHI, MAY 15. A commemorative postage stamp in honour of the founder of Omkara Ashram, Sadguru Om Maha Siddhar Swamigal, was released by R. Ganesan, Member (Operations) of the Postal Service Board, here today. Organised by the Parabrahma Sadguru Siddhar Swamigal Centenary Celebration Committee at Delhi Tamil Sangam here, the function marked the birth centenary celebrations of the Sadguru.

A master of the Upanishads, the Vedic scriptures and the Siddha philosophy, Sadguru emphasised the message of universal brotherhood, world peace and the essential unity of the paths to divine bliss. Born at Srinivasanallur in Tamil Nadu, Sadguru taught the importance of physical, mental and spiritual discipline to create a perfect world.

An acclaimed expert in Siddha medicine, Sadguru's healing touch alleviated the sufferings of millions of people. Several million disciples and followers of Siddhar Swamigal across the globe today testify the divine presence of the Sadguru in their lives.

On the occasion, Justice Doraiswamy Raju released two spiritual books written by the spiritual head of Omkara Ashram, Swamy Omkaranandaji, titled - "Ulaga Maha Siddhar Varugai" and "Jnanopadesam". The first copies of these books were presented to M.N. Krishnamani, the former president of the Supreme Court Bar Association and also former head of Delhi Tamil Sangam, and to S. Sundaresan, former Prasar Bharti member, respectively.
