Thank you for sharing the girivalam video. A must for all devotees to Tiruvannamalai. It is believed that Lord Arunachala instantly pardons one’s sins upon completion of the girivalam. I thoroughly enjoyed the girivalam too in 2008!
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
