Mahaswami Museum
It is much beyond a Museum. It is a unique temple for the Sage of Kanchi.
Mahaswami Museum has hundreds of rarest of the rare pictures, which have captured albeit briefly, of his times, his life, his devotion, his selfless service to the humanity, his simplicity, his rare vision and his teachings. He was an inspiration, an epitome of learning and wisdom with which he captured every heart – from the mightiest to the weakest.
Mahaswami’s missions on the values of life and vedic education have inspired us to create this museum. This is a temple of learning, which would inspire the young and old alike
There are rare pricelss items on display which were used by the Sage during his living times. The Pallakku which carried him to distant places, of the vessels used in daily puja, the Rudraksha Kreedam that adored his head on Pradosha Kalam, those books that were read by him and the gems of wisdom that come therefrom, of the Paduka Mandapam that has his old Paduka that he extensively used in Satara in Western Maharashtra, all are on display.
The Laksha rudraksha Lingam in the Mandapam is a huge Lingam adorned by one lakh rudraksha beads.The Museum also houses Bharat Ratna Dr. M. S. Subbulaksmi portrait gallery and a huge statue of the nightingale of India. The Vidya Mandir campus is possibly the only one of its kind that pays tribute to the Lord, the Guru and the Shishya. The Mahavidushi ‘MS Amma’ as she was popularly called was an ardent devotee of the Mahaswami of Kanchi.
