The Karma of one's current life (Prarabdha ?) - can it be destroyed by the Grace of God?

Is every little event in one's life the result of Karma?
For instance: I am sitting at a table with a ball pen next to me.
When that ball pen should roll off the table and fall on the flow now, would that be Karma or just coincidence?

For example, a person who had to die at a young age, he
dies at such a young age, and his wife suffers without any help,
as a widow, and mostly in poverty.
But was it not the Karma of the wife to become widow at this age?

Is Karma a strict personal thing, or do families share Karma?


Dear Anil,

Yes. Sakti nipada was given to Sri Bhagavan in Madurai by goddess Meenkashi. The divine power that descended on Him did wonders
in due course of time. The goddess made Him to achieve self realization from 'death experience' in just 20 minutes and also directed Him to Tiruvannamalai.

Arunachala Siva.
Please, where can I find this episode of Sri Bhagavan's life?
Is it in an authobiography?


Dear Mr. Subramanian,

Thank you very much for answering my questions.
May I ask: Is the Sankrit name "Apitakuchambaal" different in meaning then the Tamil name?


At Thiruvannamalai Lord Shiva's name is Annamalaiyaar, but Devi's name is Unnamulaiamman.
Why the changing of vocals "a" to "u" in Mother's name?
What exactly is the meaning of these names?

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Family & moksha
« on: May 20, 2011, 03:17:47 AM »
When someone attains moksha, has this an effect on the fate of that persons family members?
Because I think the Devi Gita says when a person attains moksha his mother must never be reborn.

What did Bhagavan say about this?
Because I have read that Ishta-Devata can only help to acquire kama, artha and dharma but not moksha.
On the other hand there are people like Swami Papa Ramdas who attained moksha by the simple practise of japa with the name of their Ishta-Devata.
So I am confused.

General Discussion / Kamagiri - Devi's hill

I don't know if you are aware that in Assam there is a hill named Neelachala Parvat or Kamagiri, home of Kamakhya Devi.
Here is the info site from TempleNet.
So Devi also has taken on the form of a hill...  :)

When someone is unable to go to Arunachala physically, can that person perform mental Pradakshina?

Dear Mr. Subramanian,

Thank you very much for the names you gave.
3. I remember one from Bengal. I do not know her name readily.
Could this be Sri Anandamayi Ma?


General Discussion / Was Annamalaiyar temple a Jain temple?
« on: May 11, 2011, 02:46:29 PM »
From Wikipedia:
As per archaeologist and confirmed history ,this Arunachaleshwara temple was originally converted from Dravidian Samanar religion, who are micro minority in South India now. Around 8000 Samanar saints were killed in one day when this temple as well as many Samanar temples were forcibly converted to Brahmin temples. There is no historicity in Brahminical claims. However it makes no difference who controls the temple and the main deity who is renamed after Shiva originally from Arugar ( Adinath- Dravidian god) , Such temples which were originally part of non-vedic dravidian heritage,which includes other famous temples like Nagaraj temple in Nagercoil,Kamakshi temple in Kanchipuram, Varadarperumal in Kanchipuram, Tirupati Balaji at Thirumala hills. History of Hinduism started in Tamilnadu only after 5 th C A.D.
Please, is this true?
