Yogaswami's Pilgrimage to India

a. Three times Yogaswami took the ferry from Ceylon to India. From Kashi’s Siva temples in the North to Tiruvannamalai and Madras in the South, he explored holy Bharat. b. During a pilgrimage to India, Yogaswami visited Ramana Maharishi, the sage of Siva’s Mount Arunachala who had become renowned. Their meeting was remarkable in its simplicity; neither spoke a word—two knowers of the Unknowable in perfect communion.

Once a profound relationship is developed with Lord Muruga, then with the guru's permission and guidance, true yoga may commence. Otherwise, no matter how long one sits in meditation, no matter how hard one tries, it is just sitting, it is just trying.
