What merit did Arunachala possess
« on: February 16, 2010, 10:15:52 AM »
Once there was a delay in Bhagavan returning form
the Hill. Devotees went in search of Him. Bhagavan
smilingly told them that the morning time was so
charming, that He felt like taking an extended walk on
the hill. He said He forgot Himself while on the hill, that
it was so much a home to Him. The scholar devotee
Ganapathi Muni composed forty Sanskrit slokas in praise
of Ramana. In one sloka he declares that Arunachala must
have acquired great spiritual merit for Bhagavan to come
to Him. He won this merit by giving refuge to the many
saints who came to Him. When a devotee pointed this to
Bhagavan He smilingly asked what merit did Arunachala
possess that those great saints came to Him.
