With its lofty ideal of "Ore Thai and Ore Kulam" "only one Mother and one Race" it is admitting into its innermost chamber - garbha griha - all the devotees, regardless of their affiliations to caste, colour, creed, religion, region, age, sex, language etc. A novelty, no where practiced, though preached always. This synthesis of divergent faiths makes this Sidhakshetra a microcosm of the religious life of India. 

Every festival of major religions of our sacred land are performed in the Garbha Griha-Karuvarai. In accordance with the provisions made, Christians, Jains, Buddhists can enter the sanctum and offer prayers in the pattern they are accustomed to. Besides, there are no hereditary priests to harass or brow-beat the devotees, by mumbling something, only to extract abnormal sums by way of fees to conducting prayer services. Anyone can offer archana, abhishekam etc. by himself, guided by some experienced devotees, whose duration lasts for 24 hours.
