Every January on the day of Mattu Pongal, Siddha Rajakumar Guruji donates sugarcane to villagers near Perambalur and to the tribal people who live in hills as well as elephants in South India.
Along with that, Rajakumar Guruji’s Maha Siddhargal Trust distributes blankets, sarees, children’s garments, school supplies, siddha medicinal oil (Sanjeevi oil), tooth powder, and herbal paste to thousands of tribal people who live in hills near Pollachi.
The secret behind visiting these sacred hills is that two of the great siddhas – Vilayatu Siddha and Vimala Siddha – have attained Jeeva Samadhi (a state of existence in which they have no physical form) in these hills.
Siddha Rajkumr says, “The significance of feeding sugarcane to an elephant is that if you feed an elephant its favorite treat-sugar cane with lots of love-at 12 noon on a Friday, it will remember you the next day at noon. If you feed the elephant for the next three days, it will remember you next year on that date. If you do not come that year to feed the elephant, it will pray to God asking him to send you with sugar cane.”
This is started with lighting the sacred fire atop the hills in the evening at 7 pm. Fireworks follow it. At the temple at the base of the hills Go (cow) worship, Gaja (elephant) worship, and Asva (horse) worship are performed. After that, ablution for the idol of Siddha Kagapujanda and the sacred fire ritual to invoke the grace of the siddhas take place four times between 6 pm and 5 am. Throughout the night and the next day, monks and all the devotees are given grand meals. The monks and the needy elderly people are given robes, too.

Karthigai Deepam (Festival of Lights)
On this day, a large beacon is lit atop Brahmarishi Hill, made of a 210-meter wick and 210 kilos of ghee. This is followed by fireworks. The Mahasiddhargal Trust feeds nearly 5000 people who visit the hill on this day. The members of the Trust also provide beverages. People who offer groceries and ingredients for the mass feeding receive boundless grace that wipes out their unsolved problems, bad karma, debts, and the obstacles they are currently facing in their profession. They are blessed with peace, prosperity, and eternal bliss.
