By grace of Sai i wish to have darshan of Lord Arunachaleswarar in Thiruvannamalai .
Karthigai Deepam : The great Light of God on Holy hills :
The temple is known for its holy deepam ( jyothi ) which is lit over the mountain every year during the month of Karthigai.
Thiruvannamalai is situated in Tamilnadu and well connected by Bus from Chennai and other places in Tamilnadu.
The Holy mountain is so sacred that thousands of devotees come around the entire hill every month during pournami ( full moon day ). Its known as Giri valam
Since I have not been gifted so far to do a pilgrimage to Thiruvannamalai am not able to write many friends. I have heard there are
Saint Ramana Maharishi :
Ramana maharishi ashram and also ashram of sheshadri swamigal. The saint who served in Shirdi from 1954 to 1996 Sivanesan Swamiji was with Ramana maharishi for 3 years after which he went to Shirdi. Now there’s a samadhi of Sivanesan Swamiji 3 km from Shirdi temple.
Om Namah Shivaya
