Tiruvannamalai at the holy Mountain Arunachala
We will meet in our hotel in Chennai, from where we will travel to Tiruvannamalai in an A/C bus. A stopover at a beautiful temple is planned so that we will arrive late in the evening. 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.
This wonderful video offers a nice impression, by this webcam you get a snapshop of the Arunachala.
The Shivaratri Festival will be the highlight of this journey. This night is one of the most powerful energy nights throughout the year. As the holy mountain Arunachala in Tiruvannamalai carries Shiva energy itself, this place is one of the most powerful places in India to celebrate Shivatri. We will celebrate this night in a very special way: With fire rituals, visits of many temples, the great Shiva temple in particular. Get a wonderful impression here.

On our travels, it is important to follow the energy, so that changes in schedule are possible at any time. Bharati is connected with extraordinary people and places in India. If she is traveling with her groups, it is possible that vibrations are so strong that the group changes its plans spontaneously and might might even skip lunch.
If we accept these processes, we often go through quite surprising and divine providences. Please be open and flexible, if you want to be part of this journey. The Divine always acts beyond the mind - on level of the soul and the heart.
