Giver of Knowledge - LAKSHMI HAYAGRIEVER
Lord Hayagriever is Goddess Lakshmi's guru. He finds a place in this pantheon because knowledge can overcome illness.
Swamigal wanted the idol to be made of an extremely soft sandstone, as this was the dictate of the nadi. Unable to source the stone, Swamigal was worried. A long-lost friend visited him by chance. His brother happened to be a granite agent, and he had the stone delivered the very next day. It was the first time that the raw material came to the temple before going to the sculptor.
Sri Vedanta Desikar is believed to be an incarnation of Lord Hayagrieva himself. Lord Lakshmi Narasimhar is the guru of Sri Vedanta Desikar.
The LIFCO family (Mr. Sharma) are disciples of Sri Muralidhara Swamigal. When they came to invite him to the founder's centenary celebration they asked what they could offer Swamigal on the occasion. They undertook the cost of sculpting the idol, books and stationery to be given away as blessings.
The LIFCO family is an integral part of the Danvantri family and an ardent devotee of Lord Hayagriever.
