All sadhanas are for getting rid of the delusion
that you are the body.

Really True Sir!! Arunachala's reputation is such!!! what could be spoken on him. For Worldly people, He is a bad satsangam to have! :)

மொட்டை யடித்தெனை வெட்ட வெளியினி
Nட்டமா டினையென் னருணாசலா

How wonderful it is that you have shaved my head clean,
O Arunachala, and are now dancing a joyous dance in the
heart's vast empty space?

Arunachala who is merely standing like a inert stone, with radiating heat; his job is kabalanam, swallowing. Kabalita ghana Vishwaroopa Kiranaavalya, Whose spreading rays engulf all things

சகலமும் விழுங்கும் கதிரொளி இனமன
சலசம் அலர்த்திடு அருணாசலா

Sun whose bright rays envelop (Swallows*) the whole world,
O Arunchala, make my heart-lotus blossom

Swallowing seems more appropriate to me than evelop as used in translation.

He is a GREAT GOBBLER

Wonderful Hari, Thank you for the joy! wondering if there could be anything more मधुरम् "Madhuram" sweetness, delightful than "Rama"

How wonderful is just this name राम​ rāma for our tongue to twist and produce the sound

॥ राम ॥                                                    ॥ राम ॥                                                  ॥ राम ॥                                                  ॥ राम ॥                                             ॥ राम ॥                                                  ॥ राम ॥                                                  ॥ राम ॥                                                  ॥ राम ॥                                                  ॥ राम ॥                                                  ॥ राम ॥

... It does bring sort of heaviness, you just don't want to be separated from the physical company of Bhagavan, however much we may rationalise spiritually. This bondage with the Guru is "paavanam" purifying. These are the special feelings we as humans are capable of experiencing.

it is really shattering!!! The play of Mother is indeed inscrutable! What purpose, what necessity!!

Who are we...? some invisible dust in this brahmaandam!!

They must be really so strong in faith to survive after the demise of body Holy Guru.

It is inevitable!

God is the Inner Guide! He sees the longing of
our heart and the yearning of our soul.

Nothing whatsoever is achieved in spiritual life without yearning.
By constant living in the company of holy men, the soul becomes
restless for God. This yearning is like the state of mind of a man
who has someone ill in the family. His mind is in a state of
perpetual restlessness, thinking how the sick person may be cured.

"Cry to the Lord with an intensely yearning heart and you will
certainly see Him. People shed a whole jug of tears for wife and
children. They swim in tears for money. But who weeps for God?
Cry to Him with a real cry."

"But even behind the mother's love lies her hope that
the children will support her later on. But I love these youngsters because
I see in them Narayana Himself. These are not mere words.

Your doubts will soon disappear. Others, too,
have passed through such a state of mind.

To those who became his intimate disciples the Master was a friend, companion, and playmate. Even the chores
of religious discipline would be lightened in his presence. The devotees would be so inebriated with pure joy in
his company that they would have no time to ask themselves whether he was an Incarnation, a perfect soul,
or a yogi. His very presence was a great teaching; words were superfluous. In later years his disciples
remarked that while they were with him they would regard him as a comrade, but afterwards would tremble to
think of their frivolities in the presence of such a great person. They had convincing proof that the Master
could, by his mere wish, kindle in their hearts the love of God and give them His vision.

He accepted disciples with the full knowledge of
their past tendencies and future possibilities.
