Can everyone chant "Arunachala Shiva, Arunachala Shiva" without initiation?

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

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.

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.

What are Bhagavans teachings about Om?
What is the correct way to use Om in meditation?

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.

Does someone here know Aum Amma?

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

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.
