Title: Maharshi's Gospel and Talks - 34
Post by: Subramanian.R on June 25, 2009, 12:08:41 PM
Talk No. 561 describes the conversation between a devotee
and Bhagavan Ramana on Swarupa and Arupa.

Devotee:  What is Swarupa [form] and Arupa [formless]
of the mind?

Bhagavan:  When you wake up from sleep, a light appears,
that is the light of the Self passing through Mahat Tattva.
It is called Cosmic Consciouness.  [only this morning, I
read silentgreen's post on Cosmic Consciousness!].  That
is Arupa.  The light falls on the ego and is reflected therefrom.
Then the body and the world are seen.  This mind is Swarupa.
The objects appear in the light of this reflected consciousness.
This light is called Jyoti.

Arunachala Siva.
