South is Best

Yogi Ramsuratkumar would often counsel serious spiritual sadhakas that it was more advantageous to reside on the South Side of Arunachala. On several different occasions when he was approached for blessings to purchase land on the North Side of Arunachala. He remarked; That is too far away. Stay south. And stay near the Ashram.

When it came time to build his own Ashram, several pieces of land were offered to him from which to select, but it was land almost directly south and within half a kilometre of the base of Arunachala that he selected.

The highest saints themselves advising people to live on the South side, shows how very important that is. Probably many people don’t know this, so it is great you are putting the info out there!
