TAPAS MOUNTAIN (ARUNACHALA)– SACRED MOUNTAIN OF AWAKENING!
Arunachala – Sacred Mountain
Arunachala, in Thiruvannamalai is the most ancient spiritual center of South India with this sacred mountain called by the sages, the mountain of fire. Over the last thousands of years, multitude of seekers attained enlightenment and to this day, there are many enlightened Beings living in the caves and huts around this sacred mountain. It is said that who ever prayed deeply for the vision of God is granted that fortunate sight here as the sacred mountain reveals Itself as God.
|Nandhi was summoned above this sacred mountain by his guru, Ayya, who meditates in His cave. Nandhi prayed that he would be granted the divine vision of seeing God. Later in the evening, after descending the sacred mountain, while Nandhi was meditating at the front of the mountain along with three others, the Mountain transformed into a glowing divine glory beyond any words of beauty, magnificence, splendor, enchantment words can hope to express!
Since that day, this propelling energy behind Nandhi’s vision seeks to constantly recreate that extreme splendor, magnificence and beauty he was blessed to witness. This painting of Thiruvannamalai is a feeble attempt to capture such an immense experience of the two eyes that the third eye when aware is the witness as pure bliss!
