Arunachala / Re: Arunachala and Mukti
« on: July 06, 2011, 12:14:21 AM »
Can everyone chant "Arunachala Shiva, Arunachala Shiva" without initiation?

212
For doing japa with 'I': is it better to use Sanskrit or one's own native language?

213
What is 'I' in Sanskrit, aham?
Can this not lead to more egoism?

Dear Jyoti,

What you have written is for maintaining good health
and to follow some yogic practices.  Good health, ok.
But yogic practices are in no way concerned with
Self realization, says Sri Bhagavan.



Arunachala Siva.


I have not posted this article, prasanth_ramana_maharshi has done.  ;)

Arunachala / Re: Parvati Hill

Here is a photo of that hill.

I found it here.

This view of Arunachala shows the main peak and the two peaks of Parvathi hill forming the face and the lotus of Sarawsthi and the Great Northern Spur represents the Peacock.

On the richardarunachala site I found an article about the creation of a path to Parvati hill.

Quote
As you can see, this will open up much more of the area near Parvati Hill, and allow access to the Hill itself. We think this will be much appreciated by those who love Arunachala, and use the Inner Path as a way to imbibe the peace of Arunachala.

Arunachala was created when Shiva manifested himself as giantic Lingam.
But what is the origin of Parvati Hill?

In Bengali tradition Lakshmi and Sarasvati are daughters of Durga-Parvati.
But I think those goddesses are not born normal eighter, at least Lakshmi appeares during churning of the ocean of milk.

Is there any legend about why Vishnu and Lakshmi have no children?
Curious: Shiva and Parvati are a rather unorthodox couple, they live in Himalayas, play dice and Shiva loves bhang which Parvati prepares for him. In contrast Vishnu and Lakshmi are much more "orderly". Yet, Shiva/Parvati are parents, Vishnu/Lakshmi not.

What is the legend behind this name?
Devi is mother to Ganesha & Skanda, so why call her one whose breast have never been suckled?

223
Thank you for the link.
I was aware of this site, but it is run by Westerners and I want to learn about Devi from Shakta disciples from India.

I found a map of the girivalam path here, with all the Lingas.
Where does the path start, which Lingam comes first?

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Karma
« on: June 11, 2011, 06:23:37 PM »
"Sri Ramana Mahrshi: Individuals have to suffer their Karmas but Iswara manages to make the best of their Karmas for his purpose. God manipulates the fruits of Karma but he does not add or take away from it. The subconscious of man is a warehouse of good and bad Karma. Iswara chooses from this warehouse what he sees will best suit the spiritual evolution at the time of each man, whether pleasant or painful." found here

When I read the news, I cannot help but thinking that Ishvara somethimes gives people too much to handle.
How can beeing tortured & raped suit the spiritual evolution of a child?
And there are many cases were children have to suffer such terrible things, just loock on web, it is unbelievable.  :'(
