It is impossible to say anything appropriate about the spiritual experiences awaiting you on this journey because most of the experiences of the soul cannot be expressed in words. They are special gifts that move our inner self and lead us back to our real being.
Tiruvannamalai at the holy Mountain Arunachala – a magical place
Our journey begins in Bangalore, from where we will travel to Tiruvannamalai together. The small town of Tiruvannamalai is situated at the foot of the holy mountain Arunachala, which is considered a manifestation of Lord Shiva. Sri Ramana Maharshi, a worldwide known master who is one of the most known wise people and representatives of the Advaita-Vedanta of the 20th century, has lived here until 1950. Ramana Maharshi taught self-examination by the question “Who am I”.
From the Shri Ramana Ashram a path leads up on the Arunachala where the two hermitages are situated in which the master spent many years. In town, we find the well-known Arunachaleshwara temple where Shiva – in form of the element fire – is worshipped.
