Tiruvannamalai and other four sthalas of mukti.
« on: December 01, 2012, 05:54:22 PM »
Maharshi: Siva says, 'By my command,' Those who lives here need no initiation, diksha etc., but get mukti....Such is the command
of Siva.

Devotee: The purana also says that those who are born here are Siva's group of followers, such as ganas, spirits, disembodied beings
etc.,

Maharshi: So is said of other keshtras as well, eg. Tiruvarur, Chidambaram.

Devotee: How does it mere life or death here confer mukti? It is difficult to understand.

Maharshi: Darsanad Abhrasadasi jananant Kamalalaye, Kasyuntu maranam, muktih smaranad Arunachale.

'To see Chidamabaram, to be born in Tiruvarur, to die in Kasi, or merely to think of Arunachala is to be assured to liberation.

Jananaat Kamalalaye  means 'by being born in Kamalalayam. What is it? It is Heart.

Similarly, Abhrasadasi - Seat of Consciouness. Again, Kasi is the Light of realization. Remembering Arunachala completes the
verse. It must be understood in the same sense.

Arunachala Siva.

அருணாசலமென வகமே நினைப்பவ ரகத்தைவே ரறுப்பா யருணாசலா!
அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலா


(a) O Arunachala, you root out the ego of those who think of you at heart.
(b) O Arunachala, you root out the ego of those who think "Arunachala am I"

॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.

Dear Nagaraj,

Yes. When one considers I am Arunachala within (in my mind), then his ego is surely to disappear.

Arunachala Siva,
