Mount Meru (Kailash) & Arunachala
« on: March 18, 2012, 06:43:49 PM »
When Mount Arunachala is the centre of the universe, why do the Puranas say it was Mount Meru?

Dear Jyoti,

Mount Meru is in Himalayas and is not in the center of earth. Mount Meru is where Siva lives.

Arunachala (the Hill) is Siva Himself. It is said to be the axis of the world.  The counter axis is in Peru and this was
discovered by an American Indian by name Ravi Iyer recently. This Hill is called Mount Machu Pachu, something to
remind us about Pachiamman Kovil in Tiruvannamalai.  The aborigines living there pray to one goddess named
Pachamma, again reminding us about Pachiamman.

Arunachala Siva.

Subramanian sir - I have also read somewhere in Sri Bhagawan's works where it also read that Mount meru is Siva's head, Varanasi is Lord's heart and Arunachala is where feet are. Am I right?
Salutations to Bhagawan

Dear sanjay_ganesh,

I have not read that statement. However, Sri Bhagavan has said Arunachala is AXIS OF THE EARTH. Mount Meru could be
the center of the earth. Axis and Center are different. The counter axis is found out recently in Peru, it is a Hill called Macchu
Paachu. One Ravi Iyer went on expedition and discovered it. It tallies with the degrees and minutes for a counter axis,
giving of course, the allowance that the earth is about 30 degrees slanting.

Arunachala Siva.

Center and axis are different things?
This is confusing, how can they be different?

Dear Jyoti,

Axis is the pole or a straight rod that goes the center of a sphere from one end to another. Like the nail in the children's top.

Arunachala Siva.
