To cultivate Tejas(fire) within for Transformation, Clarity and Wisdom the trinity of healing – A blessing from Arunachala
The element of fire, called Tejas in Sanskrit, is the third of the five great elements (pancha mahabhutas). It comes third because it evolves from ether and air, containing the essence of these elements within it.
Sri Bhagavan called Arunachala the spiritual heart of the world and stayed there as the embodiment of this great light. Arunachala resides in the basking glory of the Agni Lingam (Fire element) of thiruvannamalai. It is this great vortex of energy which exudes the Fire element borne out of the embers of nature and expounding its heat in the physical aspect in the form of a linga, housed in the sanctum of one of the oldest temples of Shiva.
Aruna, which means red, bright like fire, does not signify mere fire that gives off heat. Rather, it means Jnanagni, the Fire of Wisdom, which is neither hot or cold. Achala signifies hill. Thus Arunachala means a Hill of wisdom .
Mount Arunachala sits like a feminine presence, the 12 lingas around remaining rooted in steadying the force to hold the nurturing feminine energy in its true harmony, not to compete but to know the quality of this great union in its true essence.
Sri Bhagavan’s deep insight into Arunachala and the Purnanas stipulate this profound message…. “As the moon derives its light from the sun, so other holy places shall derive their sanctity from Arunachala. This is the only place where I have taken this form for the benefit of those who wish to worship me and obtain illumination. Arunachala is OM itself. I will appear on the summit of this hill every year at Kartigai in the form of a peace-giving beacon”.
This refers not only to the sanctity of Arunachala itself but also to the pre-eminence of the doctrine of Advaita and the path of Self-enquiry of which Arunachala is the center. One can understand this meaning in Sri Bhagavan’s saying, “in the end everyone must come to Arunachala”.
Sri Bhagavan’s wisdom brought “I AM” as the ultimate meditation after 12 years of totally absorbing himself with this great mountain, which is the unity.
Thus it creates clarity and creativity without the nuances of clutter. This expanse of the “I AM” brings a certain sensitivity to life, opening the being to the beauty of the radiance which heals the soul and allows the planet to saturate us in unconditional love. To breathe it, to open the cells to it, to navigate all aspects of the mind, body and spirit. IT IS WITHIN TO RADIATE, this humble abode, lit by the fire of this abundant life energy.
