Dear Child,


Definitely it is not Muruganar.  I am not sure about Mooppanar (Karupaiah Mooppanar, a Congress leader, who is no more).

Arunachala Siva.

Aiyo!  He was definitely not a politician  :D

He was a Shaivite saint from a few centuries ago.  These ashta lingas were already there when Bhagavan arrived in Tiruvannamalai.

Dear Child,

If you say he is a Saint, then it must only be one of the following:

Guhai Namasivayar

Guru Namasovayar.

Isanya Jnana Desikar.

Thuraimangalam Sivaprakasa Swamigal.

Arunachala Siva.

I am sorry. I don't remember the saint's name. All I remember is that he actually saw all these devas worshipping Arunachala at these spots, knew they were powerful spots on the Girivalam path and built temples for them. 

Fast forward to this century,  it was M......  someone who used his own money to take encroachers to court, get custody of these temple and renovate them.  In the end,  it cost him his health - diabetes, heart problems etc.

Dear All,

Concentration throughout the walking time of giri valam is no doubt difficult.  But with practice it comes about.  One can sit
for sometime in each Linga temple and recoup yourself so that concentration would be better.  I still have problems on this
matter.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Subramanian Ji & others,

To tackle this situation I try to sing songs of lord Shiva when ever there are distractions or look frequently towards the hill if it is visible & when ever there are trees obstructing the view of the hill, I just bend my head & look down by not getting distracted by others & start singing songs again.

Om Arunaachaleshwaraaya Namaha!
