Chaturagiri: The Abode of Siddhas


chaturagiri-12

It was past mid-day when I reached the small temple dedicated to the guardian deity of the hills. He is Karuppusamy sporting a long moustache, his stretched right hand holding a sword and body decked with ornaments. The journey was tiring and I had trekked over five hours from the base camp. A half an hour climb lay ahead to the top of the hill.

My Initiation Into Spirituality


Spirituality

Soon after my birth an astrologer had a look at my birth chart and announced that this boy would become a sannyasi. This statement did not go well with both my parents and grandparents who would have none of that, and sent the astrologer on his way. Although the astrologer did leave, he challenged that if what he had predicted did not happen, he would give up astrology for all time.

My Strange Experience in Thiruvannamalai


Thiruvannamalai

At a small shop on the way we got some biscuits and placed them before the dog. It sniffed the biscuits a little and moved away without eating them. Odd I thought. But maybe biscuits were not its thing. At any rate I was not wasting more money on the dog. It was Pradosham that day and we ourselves were planning on not eating through the day till evening.

Glimpse of the Moon on Karthika Pournami


Pournami

Every full moon day, I recollect my experiences at Tiruvannamalai. Today 17th November 2013 was no exception. Today is Karthika Pournami/Deepam. A day I wished to be at the Lord’s feet. I am almost 5,000 km apart. How I wished to get the darshan of Lord Arunachaleshwara on this special day and perform the Holy girivalam. It was a fasting day. I stepped out of the apartment to see that the roads were wet and all the vehicles were soiled. It had rained. I looked up to the sky and it was covered with ashen clouds,The otherwise fiery Sun God was today hidden behind the clouds. Might be the prayers of the imams. The flower beds and green patches of grass were looking brighter, may be because the layer of dust was washed out.

My Initiation into Spirituality – Part 2


Spirituality

At this time, I was absolutely drunk with love for God. The only thing that mattered to me was God and I was willing to give up anything to reach him. Although in my young mind, God was a great desire, I really did not know what it was that I was searching for, but the vague feeling of separation was acutely present.
