Life at the feet of Arunachala
I am feeling grateful to have this space to share my love for Arunachala and Bhagawan. Like so many who have been touched by his grace, I too was graced to come to Tiruvannamalai in the year 2012. In the beginning, I had no idea why I had come to this place. It took me six years to come out from the head and start living in my heart-space.
Bhagawan first spoke to me in 2013 when I was going through a turmoil. I still remember sitting in the big hall, eyes closed, tears flowing, heart asking ‘What is all this?’. And he clearly answered.
But my resistance to accepting the reality plunged me into deep angst and only through surrender I could experience the grace of Bhagawan, Arunachala.
Over the last nine years, I have had so many magical moments and Bhagawan is my Father, Arunachala my home. The artwork or sketches I am sharing with you and many more that are happening, are spontaneous expressions that have come up in an ashram in the silent hall, or during talks by V.Ganeshan and Shri Nochur Swami. I see them as the process of opening up my heart and dialogues within, by the grace of Bhagawan.
It is truly a blessing to be in the presence of Arunachala, Bhagawan and be able to live here in Tiruvannamalai.
Thank you, feeling grateful.

Dear Nikita, your words resonate with me so much. It’s so true how Bhagwan takes care of us. I had the similar experience to share from my first visit and then the visits after. My Amma introduced me and told me that only when Bhagwan calls you can go to meet him. Today I get the meaning of her these words. You are blessed. And we too to be connected with you. Your sketches are awesome and so pure. And very authentic.
