Abstract: We make use of the variational properties of the geodesic distance function of a Riemannian manifold and the technique of the ``blowing-up'' ($ \sigma $-process) on a complex manifold to derive the nonexistence of compact complex analytic subvarieties in a simply connected, complete Hermitian manifold with nonpositive sectional curvature.
