The World as manifestation of Brahman
« on: October 13, 2009, 12:29:13 PM »
Tiruvannamalai represents Fire, among the 5 elements of nature.
The Hill is very old, about 3 billion years, older than Himalayas
and other mountains.  This Hill came up, as soon as the world
was formed.  The Hill, Bhagavan Ramana says in the axis of the
whole world.  There is a counter-axis somewhere in Peru in
South America.  This was told by Bhagavan Ramana.  Recently,
this counter-axis hill called Mount Paachu has been discovered.
There the aborigines pray to a Goddess called, Pachama, reminding
us of Pachiamman Kovil of Tiruvannamalai!

There are five elements and there are five Siva temples representing each element.  Chidambaram, is Space.  Kalahasti,
is Air, Kanchipuram is Earth, Tirvanaika, near Tiruchirapalli is
Water, apart from T'malai which represents Fire. Then the
Sun and the Moon are represented by Konark Sun Temple and
Somnath Temple, in Orissa and Uttar Pradesh.  Like this Jiva
is also a Sivam.  Thus the count is eight, ashta murtam, as mentioned in Verse 9 of Sri D.S.

All these represent as Siva swarupam.  Poet Kalidas says in
Kumara Sambhavam:  "Siva did agni-sacrfice before marrying
Parvati. He prayed to Agni.  Siva is only praying to Him!"

The same concept is also said when we say:  Sarvam Vishnu
Mayam Jagat.  All are Vishnu in this world.

Actually Sri Dakshinamurty Stotram is only an Ashtakam, eight
versed poem.  This Verse 9 and Verse 10 are called Palasruti,
the benedictions for the seekers of the Self.
