Heart of World

In the Dravidian region of South India there is the place called Arunachala dearest to Siva. ARUNACHALA IS TO THIS WORLD WHAT THE HEART IS TO THE WHOLE BODY. It is everything for Shiva. For the benefit of the world, Shiva took the form of a mountain and settled himself as Arunachala. If other places are abodes of Shiva, Arunachala is the absolute form of Shiva himself.

[Extract Arunachala Puranam]
