Thiruvannamalai – The Moksha Puri

Thiruvannamalai the Land of Lord Shiva is revered as a place of Salvation people. No where on earth a whole Mountain or Hill or a Town is considered as God himself, Yes the Thiruvannamalai Hill is itself a Linga and living there is nothing but living next to God.

People from all around the world throng the town on the Full Moon day of every month to climb round the holy hill which is called Girivalam. Giri meaning Mountain and Valam meaning going around. This is nothing but going around Lord Shiva himself and praying to him directly for Moksha.

Moksha is a state of mind where every Human being surrenders himself to God washing away all his sins, and performing Girivalam at Thiruvannamalai is nothing but surrendering yourself to Lord Shiva himself washing away all your worldly sins on his feet.

Thiruvannamalai has many reasons to live, and that is why Sidhars and Sadhus still live on the foothills thinking of God and only God. If you don’t believe this pay a visit to Thiruvannamalai on any day to spot great saints there. If just being in Thiruvannamalai for one day a month gives you Moksha think about living your life there…? And that’s the reason why people rush to Thiruvannamalai to find a home to lead their life.

Living in Thiruvannamalai will give you positive vibes taking you near God every single breath and thus prevent you from even thinking wrong. The Land itself gives you a Positive Aura that surrounds your lifeline and gives you the Moksha that people of the outer world long for.
