Description
Foreword To The First Edition

A work of this kind is not a record of facts and details. What this book records are the experiences of devotees, sages and saints who have felt Arunachala in the hill, Arunachala in the temple and Arunachala in Ramana. They live and breathe Arunachala. They speak of Arunachala as a mother would of her child or a lover of his beloved, not in measured terms, but in awed tones and with overwhelmed sensitivity The reader is invited to join as a spectator of this love affair.

The joy and delight the writers feel, the choking emotions they try to express here are sure to capture the heart of the reader making him long for these experiences.

The divine is beyond thought. Yet He allows Himself to he reflected in a sigh, a tear, a gasp, a look of wonder. This is what this book is. Long after the words are forgotten, the details erased from memory one can feel inwardly the sigh, the tear, the gasp, the look of wonder and say, “This is Arunachala, this is Ramana.”

 

Foreword To The Fourth Edition

In this revised and enlarged edition we have added a few chapters dealing with inscriptions (that are found in the temple of Arunachala). reproduced with the kind permission of Director, French Institute of Pondicherry, notes on shrines and other ancient sites found in Tiruvannamalai, a ‘list of saints who have visited Tiruvannamalai, rare herbs found on the slope of Mount Arunachala and a list of literary works singing the praise of Arunachala.

The previous editions dealt mainly with the puranic, Vedic and devotional aspects of Arunachala while this edition is made a more comprehensive one dealing with the history of Tiruvannamalai in detail and with other aspects so to bring out the glorious heritage of Tiruvannamalai.

Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
