Arunachala might be an extraordinary spiritual catalyst for some but just about everybody one speaks to (at Tiruvannamalai) is aware that there is something special about the place. That there is a quality of peace here that one doesn't feel anywhere else. But as well as that acknowledgement of peace who knows what else is going on deep within the consciousness? Martin Gray believes that,

'... power places exercise, among their various energetic functions, the ability to assist people in the awakening and stimulation of spiritual consciousness. They are places where a 'wake-up call' to deep spiritual and ecological awareness might most clearly be heard.'

The energy is immensely powerful but very subtle and continues permeating on deeper and deeper levels. It is not the electrifying energetic shakti one experiencing when meeting a powerful Saint; its more like falling into a bed of soft cotton wool. It hugs and it holds, but softly, non-invasively, gently. It contains and gathers up and feels like some gigantic spiritual girdle. All held in snugly!

That sounds much nicer than that strong WOW rush you get when you meet Saints. If I need excitement I'll rent myself a 'Lethal Weapon' movie. What I want is peace.

I totally agree with you. But lots of people love that WOW rush. And so many people fall in love with their Gurus - that energetic connection gets all mixed up with body identification and attachment. Its a whole lot easier and clearer and PEACEFUL to connect with Arunachala.

Absolutely - I agree completely! How peaceful and fulfilling not to have life complicated by a human embodiment of the Divine.

And also wonderful not to have life complicated by having to deal with other people that have attachment to the same human embodiment. Jealous, competition, back biting. Such a pretty sight!
