This book covers a vast panorama of over four thousand years from the Rigvedic seers to Ramana Mahrshi. Arunachala, a seemingly insentient hill, and the golden hued Ramana are the embodiment of the fire of knowledge. The purpose of this book is to rekindle in every human heart this smoldering fire now douched by ignorance.In one sense this book is really many books rolled into one, at least five or six of them. Arunachala, the beauty of hill itself, its caves, the journey to the summit, Arunachalewara temple, the festivals, the power of Arunachala to draw to itself all the seekers of truth. It is also the radiance of Ramana. The places hallowed by Ramana's presence, and also the 20th century saints, Mahan Seshadri Swami, Azhagammal are all covered.The book also is visible feast with 200 illustrations. Each picture is different, yet has a special compelling fascination.Arunachala and Ramana are brought close to each home so that one can live in the redeeming and liberating thought of Arunachala Ramana.
