Significance of the Beacon (Bhagavan):

“Getting rid of the “I am the body” idea, turning the mind inward, and merging it in the Heart to realize the real, non-dual Light of the Self (to realize the Self as non-dual Being and the Light of all), is the real significance of seeing (darshan of) the beacon on Annamalai, the center of the universe.”

~The Collected Works of Ramana Maharshi

Significance of Arunachala: (Muruganar)

“The appearance of Annamalai in front of Brahma and Vishnu and their utter distress at not being able to know it symbolizes the Heart Center (the Self), which shines of itself, while the intellect and the ego are nonplussed seeking it.”
