"I have seen a wonder, (this) magnetic Hill which forcibly attracts the soul! Having suppressed the mischievous (mental) activities of the soul who has thought of It (even) once, having drawn (that soul) to face towards Itself, the One, and having made it motionless (achala) like Itself, It feeds upon that sweet (pure and ripened) soul. What (a wonder) this is! O souls! Be saved by thinking of this great Arunagiri, the destroyer of the soul (the ego) who shines in the heart!"
The only place on our Earth i wanted to visit was Arunachala Hill in Tiruvannamalai, south India. From the first time i heard her name Arunachala, i recognized i love Her. This dream came true on January, 2018.
To climb the Hill, which is for me the embodiment of Siva, is Siva Himself, was one of the greatest disappointments deeply felt. I remembered that scriptures are naming enlightenment as the greatest disappointment. This was one of them. In the most possibly beautiful way.
I had a dream, few years before, that Nitya - my teacher - will take me there, and she did. I don't know how to write about it, so i share some photos from our sacred, profound, auspicious time in Tiruvannamalai.
