Most of us are familiar with Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swami of Thiruvananthapuram. A:diKe:sava Swami of Thiruvattu:r and Sri Anantha Padmanabha Swami are both reclining deities giving a blessed view of Lord in a majestic posture visible through three separate doors
one with a view to the thirumukham, the pleasant face
second with a view to the central thirume:ni
the third one with a view to the sri pa:damulu, the divine feet.
Each of the 108 divya de:sas instilled in Ramanujacharya the fundamental truths of life and inspired the acharya to share the wisdom compassionately with everyone.
Statue of Equality will soon showcase to the world the ultimate power and potency of Vedic wisdom that prescribes righteous practices for a happy and peaceful world.
Here’s a glance at the construction progress of 108 centers of inspiration, the divya de:sams:
98% of the 108 divya de:sa temples is complete
Flooring work is in progress using a chisel to shape the tiles so as to resemble traditional temples
High-quality carved doors made of teak are being fixed
Purusha Silas, premium stones used to make the deities have been procured from Kanchipuram
A 30-member sculptor team hailing from Mahabalipuram, Kanchipuram, Allagadda, Thirupathi, and Bhubaneswar reached Statue of Equality premises to complete the sculpting of the main deities
We appreciate the tremendous interest shown by lakhs of people in the making of Statue of Equality that will stand as the pride of human race for as long as the Sun and the Moon shine on the face of the Earth.

How is this important to me or the society?
Imagine a house filled with family members whose conduct is directionless. They are on their own doing what they think is right. However, there is one elderly person who knows that such behavior is harmful. Is it important for the family to listen to the elderly person?
Vedic wisdom from a bonafide Acharya is the direction that we all need today. Thus, this inspiration center is important to everyone who wishes the well-being of themselves, society, nature, and every single species on the earth.
