Giri-Pradakshina or Girivalam

    Om SathGuru Sri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae

Giri-Pradakshina or Girivalam

While I abide on earth as Arunachala, all Devas and Munis circumambulate ME. At every step that one takes on the path round Me all sins committed in one’s past lives are expiated.

Merit acquired by bathing in all the Tirthas, by performing all the sacrifices, by studying all the scriptures and by following all the Dharmas can be easily acquired by merely circumambulating Sonachala (Annamalai or Arunachala or Arunadhri).

I MYSELF abide here always in the form of Siddha, worshipped by Devas. Arunadhri is really a Column of Effulgence.”

Meditating on this Great Linga one should circumambulate it slowly; one will not born again and will certainly become externally one with Sonachala. One should walk carefully, slowly and noiselessly. While circumambulating one should meditate on Shiva.

Thousands of invisible Manus, Devatas, SiddhaPurushas and others accompany a Bhaktha (Devotee) (in subtle form (Sookshma Sareera) who circumambulate in this manner.

The Hill Is Incomprehensible, being beyond speech and thought!

The body of one who performs anga-pradakshina around this Hill becomes divine and immune to injury. All Devas circumambulate ME (Shiva or Arunachala or Annamalai) every day. Those, suffering from physical and mental ailments, and the weak and emaciated ones would be cured, as they circumambulate ME!

Lord Shiva and Parvathi Circumambulate Arunadri!

Even I (Shiva as Arunachala), circumambulate Arunadri, the divinely Effulgent Linga, and MY own form, in the company of Devas and Rishis at the time of sacred Uttarayana (the winter solstice). I do so for the welfare of the world.

Moreover, Goddess Gowri has come here to do penance.

SHE will become pure by circumambulating ME. Afterwards SHE will gain One-Half of MY Body. SHE will perform severe penance and circumambulate Me at the time of Pradosa (thirteenth day of the waxing moon) and on the day of the Kritika Star in the month of Karthika (Nov-Dec).

The Goddess in the form of Apithakuchambal shall then merge in ME.

The day on which the Holy season of Uttarayana commences is an auspicious day for ME. Hence let them adore ME on that day and attain the goal of their lives.
