As often as man errs in his ways and morals decay, God appears on earth in human form to set him right. The great sages who founded the Hindu religion, Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity, Mohammad who founded Islam and the Buddha as also the great religious teachers - the Nayanmars of Saiva Siddantha and the Alwars of Sri Vaishnava - were all considered God-incarnate. And so were Sri Adi Sankara, Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa and Sri Ramalinga Vallalar of recent memory. All these men of God set an example of good life that would emancipate the soul from bondage and effect its union with the Supreme Being.

Guru Sri Reddiapatti Swamigal who lived in human form between Sep' 1856 and Jan' 1923, stands out in sharp distinction from all these saints. Guru, also called as Andavar by HIS devotees, was not content with seeking salvation for his own soul. Andavar did penance and prayed to God for a way by which all of his fellow men would be able to reach the goal of union with God. Andavar sought for a method suited to all times, easy and simple to adopt by all, regardless of religion, nationality, age, gender and status in life. Andavar was blessed with Paripoorna Vinayakar's (Lord Ganesh) grace and his prayer was answered. And Andavar gave the world HIS great gift of "Arulsattam" or "The Divine Law".

The Arulsattam is simply a way of life and is the rich distilled essence of all the great religions of the world and the teachings of the religious teachers that had gone before HIM. People readily took to it at once and ever since thousands of men, women and children have been adopting it in their life in ever increasing numbers and have derived immense benefit not only spiritually but also materially. Arulsattam ensures a life of health, happiness and peace in this world, a life free of all ills, physical and mental, and at the same time seeks to put an end to the cycle of birth and death in this present birth itself once and for all, here and now.

This website was created by Andavar's devotees as an effort to spread the teachings of Andavar to mankind at large and to update Andavar's devotees who are spread across the world, with the latest news, important announcements and events connected to Andavar's spiritual way.
