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!
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
