It is said ‘One’`Arunachaleswaraya namah” has the equal power of chanting to one crore” Om Nama Sivaya” Sri Arunachala (Lord Siva) is the Lord and Master of the universe. The universal spirit ever shining in a blissful glory, the Brahman beyond name and form of fire “jyotir lingam”. Burns all the sins of his creations. Arunachala hill in Tamilnadu is the concrete from of Sri Arunachala, the Universal Lord. It’s that form of God that even our ordinary.
