Is yes, I would be grateful for the link.

Under what conditions can animals attain rebirth as humans?
Is that like evolution: after aeons of birth in animal form they attain birth in human form?

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Animals and plants

Do animals and plants have souls?
Can animals be reborn as humans?
I ask because animals (and I think plants too) can suffer, but what can they do to reach moksha?

Cautionary advice / Re: Rape and Robbery at Arunachala

But Arunachala is also a refuge for people who practise Sadhana in solitute.
It is said that many saints lived in Arunachala's caves.
So what then about women seekers who want to practise in solitude?

I wonder when Arunachala is God - why does he allow such things to happen to women who walk around him?
There is the story how one man suffering from leprosy walked around Arunachala when suddely another man appeared and beat him with some neem tree branches, demanging the he left as he has no buisness here.
When the leper run away, he suddely realized that his sickness had gone.
So why does not, when a man tries to rape a woman on Arunachala path, Shiva come forward in his form as Bhairava and frighten them to different behaviour?

Arunachala / What would happen if Arunachala were destroyed?
« on: June 02, 2011, 09:10:07 AM »
In our times large parts of nature are destroyed.
What would happen if anytime in the future some crazy government decides to sell Arunachala mountain to a company that removes the mountain and uses the material gained to build something?
In China the government built a monstrous dam that destroyed three gorges, so we can see what human are capable of doing in the hope to gain monay.

Dear Jyoti,

The 5th peak is Nandi the bull or Chandikeswara, the Siva Jnani who
is also the guardian angel of Siva temples. When you go to a Siva temple, you come during pradakshina to Siva's right on the outer portal where some Jnani is in Sivadhayana.  You go and clap your hands gently. You are telling him that you are leaving the temple and you are not taking any of the properties of Siva. You should clap your hands gently for 4 times, lest his dhyana is not disturbed. You should not clap your hands vigorously as if he is deaf. No. 



Arunachala Siva.
So when there are 5 peaks and 5 devatas, who stands for what?
Shiva should be Being and Devi energy, what about the others?

Good answer.  :D
I have an interest in Tantra because I like the unconventional aproach.
At the same time I like Devi more than Shiva, which is why I am never quite sure if I should worship Arunachala.

What if one walks around Arunachala anti-clockwise?
I think Tantriks do it that way, is it harmful?

So one peak is Shiva, one peak is Devi, two peaks are Ganesh and Skanda.
What about the 5th peak?

I never saw Arunachala myself.
How many peaks does Arunachala have? I read about 4.

Karma phala is already fixed.
But God is able to destroy it completely.
It is not possible that God is almighty but at the same time there is something God cannot acomplish.

In very rare cases, Saiva Siddhantam
says that prarabdha karma can be thinned.
Why only in rare cases?
Has not God grace for everyone?

Scriptural writings however say, it [the prarbdha] is like an arrow already sent [i.e fixed before your birth] and the arrow may not differentiate between a tiger and a harmless cow. It will hit anything that comes in its path. 
But has not God - being almighty - the power to destroy Prarbdha Karma?
One cannot say "God is almighty" and at the same time "God has not the power to destroy a persons Prarbdha Karma".
