Reweaving Shiva's Robes

A wonderful story (see link below) about the reweaving of Shiva's Robes, in this case the reforesting of the sacred mountain "Arunachala" in South India.

Arunachala is located adjacent to the town of Tiruvannamalai.

The Great Sage, Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi lived in a numerous places in and around Tiruvannamalai including on the slopes of Arunachala.

Adi Da Samraj had significant Blessing Regard for Ramana Maharshi. See below, from a talk given by Bubba Free John (Adi Da was referred to as Bubba Free John at this time) at Sri Ramanasramam, Tiruvannamalai, 1977:

BUBBA: Ramana Maharshi corroborated the end of formal spiritual practice, not through a communicated teaching, but through Siddhi, or literally active Divine Power, demonstrating through literal concrete processes the dimensions of the spiritual process. My contact with Maharshi was with a Siddha who was not embodied in any form, gross, subtle, or causal, There were no visions of him. There was direct, literal Communion, not with a personality, but with a literal spiritual or Divine influence that confirmed the Samadhi or terminal dimension of spiritual practice.

DEVOTEE: Bubba, about the corroboration you speak of is it that your Realization intensified? Or were there no obstructions to work through? How did you feel it?

BUBBA: Such an event is like meeting your twin brother. It was recognition, not through sight, but through the duplication of a process. In my communion with him, Maharshi demonstrated the process of his Siddhi. And Siddhi is always a process; it is not an object or a person. Secondarily it can be associated with a person, but still that person is realized as a process. It Is Communion or Satsang with such an individual. There was direct communication with Maharshi through the spiritual power of the Yoga of Amrita Nadi, which I was living and by which that Realization was corroborated and shown to be authentic.
