'...a potent transformational power is available at sacred sites. While that power will automatically touch anyone who comes into the locality of the sites, we can actually amplify the transformational power of the sites through our own consciously held intention.' [Martin Gray]

In other words we all experience Arunachala in different ways. Maybe that's the reason some people can live here all their lives and remain ostensibly unchanged, whereas others come for a few weeks and experience great transformation.

And what exactly is this 'intention'?

'In the universe there is an immeasurable, indescribable force which shamans call intent, and absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link.' [Carlos Castaneda]

So, if we come to Arunachala with a strong objective, the power of the Hill's transformational power will also be amplified and augmented.

In this respect pradakshina is prescribed as the best way of doing this. As it focuses the mind, helps one develop an intimate connection with the Hill, gives the benefit of breathing the Hill's aromatic and powerful herbs and combines in the actual activity every aspect of the mind-body organism.
