WALKING WITH OUR GURU (GIRI PRADAKSHINA OR CIRCUMUMBULATION)

SUNDARA RAJAN SUBRAMANIAN (New Delhi)
04.04.2010. 20.53pm.

It was a wonderful experience on Wed, April 1st, early morning Girivalam.

It was your presence that instilled confidence to complete the 14 kms.

Before April 1st, (past weeks) I had the experience of reciting in my dreams for a long time. This was going on till we left on 31st. On the 31st March we met you and discussed life with you. Then you said, we will leave at 3:15am next day morning.

Once I also had the doubt “will i be able to complete 14 km?” Then I said, when Guruji walking by side, will be able to complete the track. I set the alarm to 2..15 am so that we get ready by an hour. Suddenly, 2 am I felt “wetness, drops” on my neck, heard, “get up it’s 2 am.” Maybe, was I “sweating on my neck?”

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.

Guruji showed us the peaks. How they fall back, (from different angles, while we walked) one-after-other and finally become ONE. It’s total “happiness” till the end.

Exactly at the end  of 7th km, my wife could not continue. We slowed down.  All along we visited all the Shiv lingas till the end of the trip. I persuaded my wife to come along slowly and it’s Mahan’ grace we all completed the girivalam. It took us nearly 6 hours. Once completed, I told Guruji, we will come back to walk again and to visit the places  where Ramana Maharishi medidated. I left Thiruvannamalai “half-heartedly” as one has  to move on to other commitments.
