Dear atmavichar100,

Perhaps the saint thought the Rg Veda covers all the four Vedas also. Normally, Sama Veda is sung in front of Siva.
Rg. also means the Vedic couplets, in a general sense.

Arunachala Siva.

Or can it be inside the Temple when the Abhishekam is done "Mostly Righ Vedic Suktas" are chanted ? Usually there is a feeling that Gods love listening "Saama Veda" and Lord Krishna also says that among Vedas "I am Saama Veda " and in Lalitha Sahasrnama there is this term "Saama Gaana Priya" for Ambal .

Or is the translation இருக்கொடு means Rik+ other vedas ?

:) I cant believe people went to Maharishi and asked questions like these - "What is the best thing to do for ensuring the future?", "The Heart is said to be on the right, on the left or in the center. With such differences of opinion how are we to meditate on Hridaya?"

How does these all matter - when all you have to do is to find who is asking and wanting answers to these? I can only compare Maharishi;s patience with one thing - NATURE herself, the great maha maya. How patiently he answers even such questions[/b]]How patiently he answers even such questions, just like mother nature (maha maya) acts. Of course, Maha Maya is nothing but Maharishee's shakthi.


It is very important to have a clear mind .Only a clear mind can understand what is right or wrong and perform right action .Even God or Gurus words are completely misunderstood if the mind is not clear .Hence a clear mind is very important for correct Sadhana - Mathru Sarada ( on her New Year 2012 Message )

On the one side, devotees are playing veena and yazh.
Some are chanting Rg Veda;
Some are chanting (Tamizh) stotras;
Some are waiting for You with garlands on their hands;
Some are simply praying with their folded hands;
Some are weeping;  some are losing their stance and are wriggling;
Some are keeping their hands above their heads and praying.
O Lord who resides in Tiruperundurai!
Please wake up and to take over us and grace us!

Subramaniam Sir
Any specific reason why only Rig Veda is mentioned ?

By our Arunachala's grace I have completed my journey. This was the first time I travelled by bus from Hyd to Tvnmlai.
The preparations were "full on" for the anniversary of our master and I was feeling very bad that I am going to miss the birthday bash but what to do thats how it goes. Thanked Arunachala & our master for giving me the oppurtunity to visit & left the home.
Vinod happy that you completed the journey . It would have been great had you stayed on for the Master's anniversary .Anyway the very fact you could visit Master Shrine and do Girivalam to Arunachala itself is a big blessing .

Om Peace

Thanks Nagaraj for sharing the same .I have already seen this pic couple of years back but always refreshing to see it again .
There is a saying when you read "Ramayana" , you need to spread a blank mat in front of you and read with the attitude that Hanumanji will come and listen to the same  sitting on the mat .
The beauty of Sanathana Dharma is that it has associated divinity to various living creatures - Cow - Lakshmi , Crow- Pitrus , Monkey - Hanuman , Elephant - Ganesha , Peacock - Lord Subramanya ,Garuda - Lord Vishnu , Dog- Bhairavar and so we always feel we are surrounded by these divinities if we look with that bhavam .
Om Peace

" all that is required is a willingness to let whatever is be "

Very true ... but that also is "Learnt", "Taught" :D

And then , what stops a person from "Let Whatever IS, BE" ?
even after reading this statement here ? ;)

Krishna says the same thing, but from the other end. He says, ”Do not run away from action. Do your duty but do not become the doer. Let go of the feeling that you are the doer. God is the doer.”


At the outset what Lao Tzu and Krishna says differ but if you look deeply , the essence of the message is the same "Let go of the feeling that you are the doer" .

Dear Friends,

Thank you for the kind offer and consideration of my situation, but I must decline.

The cost of this is actually very little these days and my family and friends already take care of everything.

However should the need arise then I will openly ask for help.

My deepest thanks and best wishes to you all.

Dear Graham

Om Peace

Why we should read the Bhagavat Geeta or other spiritual books even if we can't understand it -

An old farmer lived on a farm in the mountains with his young grandson. Each morning, Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading his Bhagavat Geeta.

His grandson wanted to be just like him and tried to imitate him in every way he could.

One day the grandson asked, "Grandpa! I try to read the Bhagawat Geeta just like you but I don't understand it, and what I do understand, I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Bhagawat Geeta do?"

The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and replied, "Take this coal basket down to the river and bring me back a basket of water."

The boy did as he was told, but all the water leaked out before he got back to the house.

The grandfather laughed and said, "You'll have to move a little faster next time," and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again. This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was impossible to carry water in a basket, and he went to get a bucket instead.

The old man said, "I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You're just not trying hard enough," and he went out the door to watch the boy try again.

At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got back to the house. The boy again dipped the basket into river and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty.

Out of breath, he said, "SEE.... it is useless!"

"So you think it is useless?" The old man said, "Look at the basket."

The boy looked at the basket and for the first time realized that the basket was different. It had been transformed from a dirty old coal basket and was now clean, inside and out.

"Son, that's what happens when you read the Bhagavat Geeta or any other other piritual books You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, you will be changed, inside and out. That is the work of Lord Krishna or other saints and Gods in our lives."
