Arunachaleswara temple, with the sacred mountain in the background
    
slide 5 of 7

The moment I thought of your name, you caught
and drew me to yourself.
Who can know the greatness of your grace
Arunachala?
—Ramana


Arunachala, my loving lord, place
your garland on my shoulders and
wear this my garland on your
own.
—Ramana


It was the morning of September 1, 1896, when Ramana reached his spiritual Father’s home, Arunachala. The command had been obeyed. The search had ended. Thereafter there was no parting ever. Heart brimming with love, Ramana went straightaway to the Arunachaleswara temple.

The Lord was waiting to receive his son, born to proclaim his glory and power, to proclaim the direct path for Self-knowledge. Ramana could go into the sanctum sanctorum unhindered. “Father, I have come,” Ramana said. More words were superfluous. Thanks to the overflowing grace of Arunachala the schoolboy became the enlightened jnani Ramana at Madurai. This had happened on July 17, 1896. Now the physical separation too ended. It could not be otherwise as his task as a universal guru was to be performed from this one place.
