  • Wide stone path to the cave starts behind the Ramana Ashram, there is a pointer, it is difficult to make a mistake. Climb fairly flat, so it can be overcome by people of different age. On Mount Arunachala need to go barefoot, so better leave early to go back not later than 12:00. In his first visit, I couldn't bring myself to leave on time, came out way back in 3:00 pm, Sun raskalilo stone path, so had to go perebezhkami, from shadow to shadow. The cave is open to the public from 8-30 till 5:00 pm. Meditation in this place the deepest. Tranquility, bliss and a strong reluctance to leave. If we could, then I'm not gone from this place a couple of days. From this cave offers stunning views of the city. Meditation in this place have had the strongest impact on me. Rethinking himself, his life, and from the mountain, I came back a different person.
