Dear Vladmir,

Thank for your photograph from webacam.  I think this was on the
evening of 23rd Dec.  If you could re-project the photographs of
11th Dec to 21st Dec., the period for which the light was burning
on the Hills, we would be equally grateful too.  I saw it  on 20th
and 21st evening upto 9 PM, with my eyes, at Tiruvannamalai.
It was a mind-stopping experience!

Arunachala Siva.

Thank you - however, the webcam service arunachala-live.com is the creation of two long-time USA visitor/residents to Tiruvannamalai, I only maintain their website for them.

The archive of images is overwritten automatically every minute throughout the day, so only today's images are available from the archive - totally 1412 per day.

I have uploaded 80 new, very clear photographs of Arunachala taken this year with a high-resolution digital camera - more to follow. You can see them at:

I've had this photo as background on my computer screen for a month or so -- a couple of things struck me the other day, one is a chorus from a song written years ago:
Quote
"I'd be high on some green mountain, high above the raging sea,
I'd be blest by salt sea breezes -- Speckled Bird, sing for me!"
The other is that the halo above the green mountain is looks much like a most spectacular display of the elusive and rarely seen, "green glimpse".  However, the green glimpse is seen only for a brief moment (less than a second) during the sunset or -rise -- did I understand correctly that this was seen in connection with a moonrise and for a longer period, on consecutive nights?

There's a glory in the morning because the earth turns 'round, and a promise in the evening, when the sun goes down.

Dear eranilkumar,

Bhagavan Ramana has composed a verse on the significance of
the darshan of the Beacon Light on Arunachala.  It runs like this:

Getting rid of the "I am the body" idea and merging the mind
into the Heart to realize the Self as non dual being and the Light
of all is the real significance of darshan of the beacon of light on
Annamalai, the centre of the universe.

(Tr. Arthur Osbrone)

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Anil,


Bhagavan Ramana used to call Arunachala as the Self, the Sun of
suns, Ocean of Mercy etc., In Sri Arunachala Padigam, Verse 1,
Bhagavan Ramana says:

....Can a lotus bloom unless it sees the Sun?  And you are the Sun of
suns. Your grace abounding swells and as a river overflows, O Love,
whose form is mighty Aruna Hill!

Incidentally, I am not sure how many of you are you watching
the webcam of Graham Boyd at frequent intervals on a day.
I see it atleast twice or more on a day.  The web cam photographs
have not been coming since Thursday, 12.27 PM., perhaps due to
weather conditions or some problems with the camera.

Arunachala Siva.

Thank you, Sir, for the exhilarative post.The two verses of Bhagwan Shri Ramana on Shri Arunachala,which were quoted
by you in above post, has filled me with joys.

Dear Anil,

I guess you are from Sri Lanka and perhaps may know Tamizh.

When you happen to visit Asramam at Tiruvannamalai, you may
buy a copy of either English or Tamizh version of Sri Arunachala
Stuti Panchakam, which contains 5 songs of Bhagavan Ramana,
written very early in His life in T'malai.

There are several metaphors to Arunachala:

It is a Red Ruby.
It is an ocean of mercy.
It is a grace of waterfall.
It is the purport of Tat vam Asi, Thou art That.
It is primordial Effulgence which Vishnu and Brahma could not fathom.
It is the Self
It is the cave where Arunagiri Siddha lives and the cave contains
 all the treasures of this universe.
It is the only place where the this world, which is a bondage,
  will not touch you.
It is the Heart, heart of Siva.
It is the magnet which attracts you and  kills your ego.
It is the medicine in the form of a Hill.
If it reflects in your Heart, and if it happens, like the photographic plate, nothing else will be registered in you.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Loving Subramaniam ji,
                        Pranam,
                          I am sorry but I am not from Sri Lanka but verily an Indian and I come from Patna ,Bihar.
                          Being a Hindi speaking person, my English is not good ,you see.

                          Sir, I have read almost all original works of Shri Bhagwan.I shall visit Sri Ramanasramam
                          on Nov 19.this year.His Holiness Sri Ramanasramam has kindly granted permission to visit
                           Shri Bhagwan's Shrine during Deepam Ceremony and stay for five days.Thank you for
                            the above post.
   

                                                                                                         Anil

Dear Anil,

Please make it positively to Asramam during deepam.  Not many
get opportunity to visit due to rush of devotees.  Watch the Light
on the Hill.  It will be a sight annually for which the gods will be
waiting.  The Light will burn for about 9 to 10 days.  You can see
from the Asramam and if you get a vantage accommodation [guest
house] of the Asramam, you can also see it late night.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Anil,


Today is the Guru Poornima Day.  It is the full moon day, in the
month of Kataka [Aashada in South India], when one remembers
the Guru and pay special respects to Him, and seek His grace more
abundantly.  Guru Vachaka Kovai Verse 281 says:

With his twin eyes the Guru will instantaneously kill, without killing
the one who came into existence without actually existing  {i.e.the ego} in such that 'that which is not' [mind] vanishes as 'that which is not' leaving that which exists as the transcendental light shining
as "that which is"  {the Self}   



Arunachala Siva.
