Next to Petrol bunk on the Madipakkam-Velachery Main road and alongside the Puzhuthivakkam lake, in Madipakkam, is the small and beautiful Dhyana mandapam of The Mother of Pondicherry. The fragrance of the various flowers, the silence of the environment and the enchanting smell of the incence in the mandapam add to the vibration one gets in the presence of the eyes of the Mother looking at you. Unlike the other meditation centres in the city, significantly here, a Samadhi is present like that of Pondicherry Ashram. A few minutes of meditation is enough for one to recharge himself.
Within the same complex, a Gayathri Devi temple is also present with two small shrines one for Manakula Vinayagar and the other for Gayathri Devi. The Vishnu, Mahalaxmi, Anjaneyar, Thakshinamoorthy and Navagraha Idols are also present in the same complex. The group prayers are being conducted every Tuesday and Saturday.

The founderGuruji Sri VT Krishnamoorthy, of this centre is a Retired Bank Manager of State Bank of India residing at Madipakkam, Chennai was blessed by “ Sri Aurobindo” and “ Sri Annai” of Pondicherry where their original samathi existing at “Sri Aurobindo Ashram”. He was blessed to establish a “DHIYANA MAIYAM” at Madipakkam. As a result he established this centre named it as “SRI ARAVINDAR ANNAI DHIYANA MAIYAM” on 15th August 2001. The first anniversary was celebrated in a grand scale with multi various activities and heading for the following years.
The founder is a full time devotee and is with the available funds at his hands through devotees and other sources of his own, is committed for doing all sorts of improvements at the centre day by day. We place here for your kind information, a few activities the centre is concentrating and doing its best by the blessing of “ SRI ANNAI”.
The Dhiyana Maiyam has been set up to provide a platform for Annai devotees, who aspire to enrich their spiritual knowledge, explore and to move their life towards peace, prosperity, harmony and realizing thy self within.
During 2005 the Dhiyana Maiyam moved into its own premises donated by one of the Devotee. The incident behind this change of place is quite surprising for anyone to know.
When the owner of the premises where the Dhiyana Maiyam was operating suddenly sold the place to someone and requested to vacate the place as soon as possible as the new owner do not want a spiritual entity within the premises in the fear that his privacy will get affected.
Founder was left with no other option to surrender to mother. To the surprise, one of the mother devotee who was regular visitor to the Dhiyana Maiyam came forward to offer the open terrace portion of her house to run the centre.
He moved to the new location. Since that place was not also very convenient to conduct meditation and pushpanjali. We moved the centre to the another location offered by another devotee. Likewise we have to shift the Dhiyana Maiyam from one place to another, as we do not have any permanent place to function. The founder was very much worried and started consecrating very deeply to Mother, his wish for a permanent place to function.
It was really stupendous that one day founder got news that the correspondence of a school, very familiar in our location wanted to see him. It was real surprise for him that why a correspondence of a school wanted to see him. Immediately he met him at his house. He told him that about 4000 Sq. Ft. vacant land (approved site) granted to his school by the Government on ninety nine year lease under a special scheme for the purpose of constructing an educational centre or temple/shrine or for any other social organization, i.e Old age home etc., was lying unutilized for a long time. One day Mother came in his wife’s dream and wanted them to donate this place for operating the Dhiyana Maiyam. He gave the property documents and wanted to undergo the required legal/statutory formalities.
Founder could not believe it for a moment and was speechless and came back to mother with mindfull of ecstasy and gratitude. He thanked the mother for her Benevolence, need not to say when we keep true faith with mother and surrender/consecrate our suggestions open heartedly to mother, we can realized, mother has hastening to solve our problems. Finally, the founder's request for a permanent place came to an end.
Together with the blessings of mother and perseverance he has recreated the Dhiyana Maiyam at the new location, No.1 Sharma Layout, Balaiah Garden, Madipakkam, Chennai-91. Sri Aravindar Annai Dhiyana Maiyam started functioning in the new premises since 2005.
Devotees started visiting the new location one by one and today there are more than two hundred and above devotees regularly visiting the centre. No membership fee or entry fees collected. Only Hundi is placed and whatever collections is received, the same is used for pushpanjali and other maintenance expenses.
Here in the centre hall we conduct daily meditation, weekly pushpanjali with group meditation (Every Saturday, Ist day of every month), weekly bajans on Tuesday, Savitri book reading, speeches by scholars, who are associated with spiritual/social activities.

On 5th November 2007, Dhiyana Maiyam formed a Trust with name of ‘SRI ARAVINDAR ANNAI DHIYANA MAIYAM TRUST” with the strength of seven members. Trustees appointed should have the knowledge about Sri Aravindar and Sri Annai and must be more involvement with the Dhiyana Maiyam and its activities.
As the number of the Devotee visiting the centre increasing day by day, we feel upgrading the centre from this level of Dhiyana Maiyam to Relic Centre, will surely pave the way for reinvigorate the yogic power of Sri Aravindar and invincible grace of Divine Mother to the devotees. We are taking steps with Ashram for converting the centre as relic centre.
Sri ManakkulaVinayakar and Sri Gayatri Devi temples were constructed within the Dhiyana Maiyam campus with the grace of Sri Mother. By the sides of these temples, Sri SrinivasaPerumal, Ashta Lakshmi, Sri Anjaneyar, Sri DakshinaMoorthy and Navagrahas were established.
