Title: Chetharai pol thiri
Post by: ramanaduli on October 09, 2008, 04:06:34 AM
Dear Subrahmaniyan ji

I think you are very good in tamil. you  may be knowing. I read we should be like a dead body in this world, This is possible to Janai. I read so many sages who took jiva samadhi. Whereas Bhagavan even though he lost his body consiousness He lived like us 
eating laughing and talking like an ordinary person. It is His Karuna  He lived like an ordinery man

Dear Ramanaduli,
                      The state of Bhagawan is called "Beyond enlightenment".Enlightenment is Moksha bhranthi,self is not newly acquired thing so
people like Bhagawan dont feel anything special about it and they lead a life of commoner.They do not feel holier than other people.

Dear Ramanaduli, As Dr. Raju said, Bhagavan was the moving
Brahman.  He was the Brahman who came as sugar candy,
for others to taste.  Chetharai pol tiri, means live like a dead
man and move around the world.   We are all doing that when
we are asleep.  Once we get up in the morning, we starting thinking
of so many things.  Today is Vijaya dasami, I should complete the
pooja and then read a few books like Annamalai Swami - Final talks,
etc., etc., All this happens because of the ego.  An ego less person
can live and move around like a dead man.  Without doership and
yet doing a lot of things in life.  They also say in Tamil, live like
a shadow.  The shadow of a man does not feel joy or sorrow,
pain or pleasure, but still it moves about with the man.

Arunachala Siva.
