Glory be to the Divine Feet of Lord Sesha,

who exudes and enlivens the Divine Subtle fragrances

to those circumambulating the Holy Hill!

ARUNACHALA – the AMBROSIA!

(Aromas and Fragrances experienced by Sesha Bhakthas during GiriPradakshina of the Holy Arunadri)

…As we continued, our spiritual experience was blessed by the Divine Gods! Fragrances of karpooram (camphor), agarbatthi (incense), ghee, flowers, vibhuthi(sacred ash) and chandanam (sandalwood), began to emanate from the Holy Hill! They continued to linger, every few minutes. We also felt the fragrance of a Homam being performed!”

-Vaishnavi, Chennai

…It was around 4.30 near Suddananda Ashram where we got the aroma of Vadai.(a receipe made of urad dhal ). Guruji explained it was naivedyam performed during Muhurtha kala (3 am to 6am) by Gods and Rishis in subtle inside  the Hill!!  Soon we were lucky to get fragrance of Lavender at around  5.15 a.m,  at Varuna Lingam.”

– Shri. Sivaraman, Mumbai.

…We were treated to the Full blessings of Lord Shiva in His Astral form through additional fragrances appearing in sequence as if it were to take place as part of The Celestial Offerings to The Lord. We had long whiffs of Rose Flowers, Lavender Flowers, Champaka (Shenbhagam) and Tulasi.  The Aromas were followed up with the fragrance of Homam to the Lord with dried Cow Dung  (Varali ) and Ghee.The Lord wanted us to witness the complete Pooja in its unique form by giving us the Camphor Offering for a very long spell….

…All Poojas  have their Finale with Theerthams and Prasadams being partaken of by the True Devotees.  We were all treated to the Theertha Prasad consisting of Pancha Kavyam.  This was followed by the Aroma of Sarkarai Pongal complete with the flavor of cows ghee and all the condiments and spices . All of us were instantly transported to a blissful state, where nothing needed to be seen; but had to be experienced in the company of our Pujya Guruji Sathguru Sri Rajalinga Swamigal.  We all had our senses in their places; but it was The Guru and Master – who had tuned the Senses to receive the Lords Gift during the Girivalam (Circumumbulation)”

– Shri. Rajagopal, Mumbai.

…We were ready and started the walk. It’s a very unforgettable experience in my life time. Three more devotees joined us. Jasmine fragrance gave us the start. All along Shri Guruji shared the spiritual information about the Malai. He also showed us the spots where our Great Mahan asked our Guruji to sit and medidate. We walked …walked …many people took lead over us. Second fragrance was flowers…

We came across Shri Ramana Maharishi’s palam. Our Guruji told us about Shri Ramana’s life and he used to sit on the “palam” during his Girivalam. Third fragrance….smoke coming from  a “havan”. Guruji said, Devas are doing “havan” Fourth fragrance….I immediately said, it’s ;pongal. Then came icecream flavor…and so many many.”

– Shri. Sundararajan, New Delhi

…Soon after, we resumed our Girivalam, and Lord Arunachala Sesha Shiva, blessed us with different fragrances – that of wild flowers, Lavender, camphor, and the fragrance of the Holy smoke of the Maha Homam.”

– Shri. Santosh
