The South Kailash Bhakthi Movement - To Velliangiri Mountains

The Velliangiri Mountains, a part of the Nilgiri’s Biosphere, are situated at the western border of Coimbatore district, Known as the “Kailash of the South”, these mountains are held and revered on par with the spiritually most powerful place on the planet – Mount Kailash, the legendary abode of Shiva. On the top of the Velliangiri Mountains, Shiva is worshipped as Swayambu, one who is self-created, and in this form, he graces the devotees. In the past, many siddhas, seers and sages have practiced severe austerities and attained self-realization on these Mountains.

To be able to receive the grace and blessings of Shiva as the Lord of Velliangiri, it is very important to maintain certain austerities with devotion and commitment for a duration of 42 days, considered as mandala, and then take up the pilgrimage to the top of the Velliangiri Mountains.

Going on this sacred trek in the time between 14th January and 15th june is particularly conductive. In preparation, it will be beneficial to perform a 42 day mandala of austerities such as eating once a day, taking bath in the morning and evening, applying vibhuti (sacred ash), wearing saffron robes and panchamukhi rudraksh, chanting the shiva mantra for 20 minutes twice a day and worshipping Shiva.

The additional practice of seeing, worshipping and bowing down to all life forms - trees, plants, birds, animals and human beings as Shiva will become a very powerful process by itself. The same austerities can be taken up by women. They can conclude their 42 day penance by cooking and serving annadhanam for other devotees.

By going through these austerities and having darshan of Lord Shiva of the Velliangiri Mountains, one can attain prosperity and spiritual growth.

The South Kailash Bhakthi Movement invites one and all to support this venture by helping to create basic amenities for the devotees and offer the possibility for everyone to benefit from this powerful space and live a life of ultimate wellbeing.
