அருவமும் உருவும் ஆகி அனாதியாய்ப் பலவா யொன்றாய்ப்
பிரமமாய் நின்ற சோதிப் பிழம்பதோர் மேனி யாகக்
கருணைகூர் முகங்கள் ஆறும் கரங்கள்பன் னிரண்டும் கொண்டே
ஒருதிரு முருகன் வந்தாங்கு உதித்தனன் உலகம்

Next to the icon of the standing Ganesha on the wall is the figure of a person seated beneath a banyan tree with one leg crossed and the right hand of the lower arm showing a sign called the ‘chin mudra’. This icon is called Thedchanaamoorthy. Moorthy means God and Thedchanaa means South, referring to the God facing the South, a particular form of Lord Siva as a Guru, in fact as The Guru of all Gurus! The silent message imparted by his ‘chin mudra’ is that if one discards the three basic impurities ( malams) – Ego, excessive Desires and Illusion out of ignorance, in him/her, one’s individual soul ( represented by the fore finger) will unite with Absolute Divinity ( represented by the thumb), thus forming a ring.
