Arunachala Glory

I myself am Arunachala

Verses celebrating the Power of Arunachala

‘Let human beings become blessed and satisfied by bowing down to this linga. I shall assume an effulgent form and stay here under the name Arunachala for the sake of (men’s) achievement of siddhi on the surface of the earth.’ (Chapter 4, v.36-37 Skanda Mahapurana)

“Visvarupa! God in the form of Sonachala! Effulgent one! Linga in the form of a hill! Remover of all sins! Obeisance to Thee. Thy glory could not be realised even by Brahma and Vishnu as Thou art truly fiery. But Thou hast cooled down for the welfare of the world.” (The Goddess worships Arunachala before merging in it)

Neither by me nor by Visnu can the greatness of this mountain be accounted in words even in the course of hundreds of crores of years.( Lord Brahma)

"The supreme knowledge (Self-knowledge), the import of Vedanta, which cannot be attained without great difficulty, can easily be attained by anyone who sees the form of this Hill from wherever It is visible or who even thinks of It by mind from afar." (Arunachala Mahatmyam)

"Arunachala is truly the holy place. Of all holy places It is the most sacred! Know that It is the heart of the world. It is truly Siva Himself! It is His heart-abode, a secret kshetra. In that place the Lord ever abides the Hill of light named Arunachala."( Bhagwan Ramana)
