Explanation for darshans

Hi following a query regarding the darshan of AdiAnta Prabhu, I am uploading the photo of the Arunachala Hill with the angle showing the clear shapes of Vinayaka to the left and Hanuman to the right.

The Arunachala Vinayaka darshans are darshans of the Hill with the Great Northern Spur. This equates the shape to the 'Elephant' and hence qualifies as a Ganesha Darshan. Other more abstract Ganesha darshans in Arunachala are plenty and will be elaborated in the coming posts. One such previously elaborated darshan is the Karpaga Vinayaka darshan of Arunachala. Kindly refer to archives for that post.

Here is AdiAnta Prabhu.

Here is Vinayaka

and this is Hanuman.

Arunachala Vinayaka

Aum Shri Ganeshaya Namah

"Praise to Lord Ganesha". This is the mantra of prayer, love and adoration. It is chanted to get Ganesha's blessings for the positive starting of a project, work or simply to offer him the praise.

Aum Gan Ganapatye Namah

This is Lord Ganesha's mula ("root") mantra .It is also known as his ''beej'' Mantra. This mantra is used for Yoga Sadhana in which we pray to Lord Ganesha and merge ourself with the supreme knowledge and peace. This is a mantra from Ganapati Upanishad. One can always use it before starting any new venture so that success comes without any hassle.

Aum Vakratundaya Hum

This is a powerful mantra from Ganesha Purana. When things are not in your favour, or when the minds of the people turn negative, depressed or discouraged, the attention of Ganesha may be drawn by this mantra to straighten their ways. The HUM symbolizes "Delay no more, my Lord, in straightening the paths of the crooked-minded ones." This mantra is used many a times in the Ganesha Purana to reduce the violence of cruel demons. In addition, this mantra could also be used for healing any spinal problem, such as curvature of the spine or curved limbs. Dedicate 1,008 repetitions of this holy word to straighten and heal such deficiencies.

Aum Kshipra Prasadaya Namah

Kshipra means immediate. If some danger or negative energy is coming your way and you don't know how to get rid of that danger, with true devotion, practice this mantra for quick blessing and purification of one's aura.
Aum Shrim Hrim Klim Glaum Gam Ganapataye vara varada sarva janamme vashamanaya svaha
There are several beej (seed) mantras in this mantra. Among other things, it says, "Shower Your blessings, O Lord. I offer my ego as an oblation."

Aum Sumukhaya Namah

This mantra has a lot of meaning, in simple terms, it means you will be always very beautiful in soul, in spirit, in face, everything. By meditating on this mantra, very pleasing manners and a beauty comes on you. Along with that comes peace, which constantly works in your eyes; and the words you speak are all filled with that power of love.

Aum Ekadantaya Namah

Ekadanta refers to one tusk in the elephant face, which means God broke the duality and made you to have a complete one-pointed mind. Whoever has that oneness of mind and single-minded devotion will achieve everything.

Aum Kapilaya Namah

Kapila (red) means that you are able to give colour therapy. You are able to create colours around yourself and around others, soak them in that colour and heal them. As per the mantra you create, so will you create the colors. Another meaning is "wish cow," the "cow of plenty." It means that whatever you wish, that comes true. There is a wish-cow inside you. Whatever you wish, especially for curing others, comes true instantly.

Aum Gajakarnikaya Namah

The ears of Ganesha, the elephant - god, are constant fanning, which means people can talk a lot, but you are not receiving inside anything other than what is important. It also means that you can sit anywhere and tune this celestial tube (the body) with seven channels (chakras) and all 72,000 nadis, to any loka and be able to hear ancestors, angels, the voice of God or the voice of prophets. That kind of inner ear you will develop through this mantra.

Aum Lambodaraya Namah

This means you feel that you are this universe. It means that all the celestial bodies are within you. Like an entire tree is in the seed, the whole universe is in the sound of creation, which is Aum, and that Aum consciousness in you makes you feel that you are the universe. Therefore, if you say, realizing the oneness with the universe, "shanti to the world" every day, then the grace of God will come and there will be world peace, universal peace. It is the universe within Aum and Aum within you.

Aum Vikataya Namah

This means realizing this world as a dream or a drama. When you are in that high consciousness, this whole world looks like a dream. All of us have taken a role. We have to play our role in life as wife or husband or children or citizens, all consistent with the role we have taken. When an actor bitten by a sponge cobra that is brought on the stage falls, the entire audience cries; but that boy who has fallen knows it was not a real cobra and he is not dead. Life is a drama --definitely life in this material world, this physical world of ego, is a drama. But inside, like the boy on the stage who is quite happy knowing that he didn't die by the bite of the sponge cobra, like that, the truth never dies in us; it is immortal. So everything else you consider as drama. That consciousness comes to you by knowing this mantra.

Aum Vighna Nashanaya Namah

This mantra invokes the Lord Ganesha to remove every hindrance in your life and in your works. By constant meditation on this mantra, all obstacles and blocked energy in your physical and cosmological bodies are released.
Aum Vinayakaya Namah
Vinayaka is the name of Ganesha in the golden age. So by realizing this mantra, your life will have a golden age. In your office, in your work, you'll be the boss. Vinayaka means something under control. Vinayaka means the Lord of resolving problems.

Aum Ganadhyakshaya Namah

This mantra is very important. Suppose you have a group, a country, neighbours, or any kind of group therapy, group healing or a whole country requiring healing, then you have to bring that entire group to your mind's arena and say this mantra. A group healing takes place by this mantra.
Aum Bhalachandraya Namah
In Sanskrit, bhala means the forehead center. Chandra means the crescent moon. Bhalachandra means that chakra from where the nectar drips. That is the secret of all healing. It is to feel yourself as Shiva, identifying yourself with the Truth and feeling constantly that you are carrying the crescent moon, the symbol of growth and nectar of peace.

Adianta Prabhu Darshan of Arunachala!!!

Half Ganesha and half Hanuman Darshan

At Madya Kailas temple Adyar Madras

The idol is an amalgam of Sri Vigneshwara and Sri Anjaneya on the lines of Ardhanareeswara ( Siva and Parvati) and Sri Sankaranarayana (combination of Siva and Narayana).

The word Aadiyantha stands for 'begining to end' (Aadi - begining & Antha - end). There is a Tamil saying 'Begin with Ganesa and end up with Anjaneya'. Many people visit the temple to get blessing of the 'Twins' against the influence of Navagrahas. The importance of the idol is that Sri Vigneswara and Sri Anjaneya are the only two deities who are totally free from any influence over them whatsoever by the Navagrahas. It is believed that, the devotees can and do influence the Navagrahas themselves proportionate to the devoutness with which the devotees address themselves to Sri Aadiyanta Prabhu!


This darshan of Arunachala carries in it the great Ganesha on the right and the powerful Hanuman on the left. A view or darshan of this aspect of Arunachala bestows us with negation of evil influences and ill effects of planets.

It gives us the grace of the All Knowing Auspicious Vigneshwara and also the power of the Lord of Self Enquiry Hanuman.

This is one of the rarest darshans of Arunachala.

This is an original darshan not discussed anywhere previously.

Five Narsimha Darshans in Arunachala!

Arunachala Hill is the repository of all deities.

It is Shiva as well as Vishnu. It is Shakthi, Vinayaka, Murugan and also representative of billions of deities imagined and unknown.

In this post I want to showcase the five powerful darshans of Lord Narasimha which are seen in the Hill. These darshans are original inspirations an are not borrowed from any source.

The five Narasimhas are associated with another powerful hill called Yadagiri Gutta in Andhra Pradesh.

"In Tretayugam, there lived a sage by the name of Yadarishi, son of the great sage Rishyasrunga and Santa Devi who did penance inside a cave with the blessings of Anjaneya (Hanuman) on this hill between Bhongir (Bhuvanagiri) and Raigiri (Now in Nalgonda district of Andhra Pradesh, India). Pleased with his deep devotion, Lord Narasimha, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu appeared before him in five different forms as Jwala, Yogananda, Gandabherunda, Ugra and Lakshminarasimha. They later manifested themselves into finely sculpted forms that later came to be worshiped as Pancha Narasimha Kshetram."


The First is the Jwala Narasimha. The Fire Narasimha.

This is a difficult darshan to elaborate as Aruna Hill to is volcanic in origin hence the entire Hill qualifies as a darshan of Jwala Narasimha.

There is a powerful temple in Ahobilam dedicated to Jwala Narasimha.

Jwala Narasimha

The second is the Yoga Narasimha. The Narasimha who delights in Yoga.

There is a very famous temple dedicated to Yoga Narasimha in Melkhote, Karnataka

Yoga Narasimha

The south face of the Hill is representative of Yoga and hence a darshan of the Hill's south face is equivalent to Yoga Narasimha.

The Ugra Narasimha is eloborated in the post of the Five faced Hanuman.

This is the angry Narasimha darshan.

Next is the powerful Gandabherunda Narasimha...a mythological bird representing Vishnu's incarnation with two heads of a bird.

The last is the most calm Narasimha...Laxmi Narasimha....this darshan also qualifies as Narasimha Prahalad darshan with the Great Northern Spur representing Prahlad and Goddess Laxmi alternatively.

High Resolution scans of the Hill in the Pacific

Following my post about my discovery of the antipode of Arunachala deep in the Pacific Ocean, this post illustrates the Mountain in question.

It seems to have five peaks with tw valleys and a huge ridge.

The Talest peak appears to be the second one from the West and girivallam appears to be about 60 km.

The place where this Hill is located...the terrain resembles a sitting lion!!!!

I am absolutely certain that this Hill which represents the Goddess has the same power as Arunachala and is a spiritual power centre.

on to the scans!!! for the first time ever in history!

The Hill from the East.

The Hill ( second peak) from the fifth peak. The valley to the west is the larger one among the two valleys.

The Hill in its entirety with the two valleys.

Northwest face.


The red dots represent the girivallam appears to be long...about 60 km and resembles Mt Kailash Parikrama.

The place where the Hill is located resembles a seated lion indicating that the Hill is a power centre of the Goddess.
