Three Forms of Arunachala
« on: February 16, 2009, 10:53:57 AM »
On 8th May 1938, in a suit by Arunachaleswara Temple against the
Government, regarding the ownership of the Hill, Bhagavan Ramana was cited as a witness!  He was examined by a Commission. In the course of the examination, Bhagavan Ramana said that Siva always remain in three forms: 1. As a Parabrahmam, Effulgence.  2. As Linga, here as the Arunachala Hill, and 3) as a Siddha.  Brahma rupa, Linga rupa, and Siddha rupa.

On another occasion, Bhagavan Ramana said that there were there mad caps in Tiruvannamalai.  1. Seshadri Swami.  He will run around in all places in the town, behaving in erratic manner.  2. Bhagavan Ramana, mostly silent, gazing at the vacant, gazing at the Hill, with
very little talkin and wearing a codpiece.  3. Aruanachala Siva, the greatest madcap, wearing unmattha flowers, skull garlands and moon and totally naked.  Saint Poet Sundaramoorthy, sings: "O the madcap, wearing a crescent moon, the Lord of the universe and full of Grace...."
