mountain (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

Mount Batu is situated at 20 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur. It is the seat of worship of Deity Kartikeya. Inside the mountain is a huge cave which will be able to house a 15 storey building. There are more than 200 steps leading to the cave. At the starting point of the stairscase, on the right is the mausoleum of a Saint named Saint Maunguru. Formerly no one knew about this Saint. Some years ago, a devotee from Malaysia happened to visit Tamilnadu for reading of his own nadi horoscope. In that reading, Sage Agasti has said, ‘There is a mausoleum of a Saint called Maunguru at the foothills of Mount Batu in Malaysia. Search for it and install a Shivalinga there. Pay homage to the mausoleum of that Saint. The devotee followed his advice. Only people who know about this Saint come here to pay homage.

Saint Swami Jagannath who took Samadhi at Tapa in Malaysia

1B. Jagannath Swami a Saint from Tapa (Malaysia)

In 1881 a Saint named Jagannath from Puri in Bharat came to Tapa, a forested region in Malaysia. He took samadhi when still embodied, in 1959. He belonged to the Nath sect and performed severe austerities. Jagannath Swami was born in 1812 and lived for 147 years. For a period of 78 years in Malaysia he was called the ‘insane renunciant’. Many local Hindus from Malayasia were his devotees. It is said that in the year 1942, He helped Subhashchandra Bose’s ‘Azad Hind Sena’ through the subtle. Jagannath Swami had predicted that ‘Two people who will continue his Guru hierarchy would come to his mausoleum. One of them would be from Bharat and the other from America. Chitramuttu Adiglar from Tamilnadu, Bharat, who visited the mausoleum in 1920 was a great disciple of his. Later Swami Chitramuttu preached as per principles advocated by Guru Jagannath Swami. After that a yogi from Hawaii in United States, ‘Shivay Subramanya’ became his disciple. He has built a huge ashram cum temple in ‘Kuvay’ at Hawaii island. Now Swami Shivay Subramanya is propagating the Shaiva concepts and running a universal periodical called Hinduism Today. At present both renovation and extension of the mausoleum of Jagannath Swami is being done by the ‘Malaysia Hindu Sangam’ with the help of Hindus from Malaysia.

The mausoleum of a Saint from Cheng village

1C. A great renunciant Saint from Sannasimalai (Malakka, Malaysia)

Malaysia was formerly known as Malakka. In those days the Sultan fromthat area, ‘Raja Parmeshwara’ who was in search of a new capital for his kingdom reached village Malakka village. When seated beneath the amalka tree (amla), a weird incident occurred. A deer like small animal was fighting with his hunting dogs. Observing this the king thought of starting a new capital here. As this decision was taken beneath the amalka tree, the new capital was named Malakka. Later his reign was known as Malakka Sultanshahi. Hung Tua was the army commander of Sultan Mansur Shah in the 15 th century. In those days in Malakka the king was called Parmeshwara and the commander was called Lakshmana. The Guru of Hung Tua was a great Saint. The locals would call him Adiputra. It is believed that that great Saint was from Andhra Pradesh in Bharat. This Saint had taught his disciple Hung Tua several war tactics and mantras. Hung Tua became famous for his valour and honesty and today is considered the ‘national hero’ of Malaysia. However, the one who moulded him was a great renunciant, his Guru. The Saint’s mausoleum exists 9 kilometres away from Malakka city in a village called Cheng. Now there is a temple of Deities Shiva, Parvati, Kartikeya and Ganesh at this place.
