Title: Atma Vidya Vilasam - (4)
Post by: Subramanian.R on September 03, 2008, 12:48:53 PM
Verse 7:-  The Jeeva, by virtue of the great benevolence bestowed
on him by his guru, the preceptor, and by his singular attention,
achieves intellectual excellence, and become great. With that
excellence, he sheds his illusion, that is body consciousness.
By practice, he distinguishes his real identity and its relationship with
his body.  He becomes the Sat-Chit-Ananda.  He is free from
sorrows and momentary happiness.  His mind is ever balanced,
tranquil and suddha, pure.  He becomes ever cheerful.  He
becomes the Peace.

Verse 8:-  When the grace of guru descends on the disciple,
that Jeeva ever immerses in the ocean of bliss  When his
mind has annihilated, the universe also is annihilated for him.
Having got rid of the blindness of illusion, he is able to 'see'
and he become 'the seer'.   Sucn awakened person becomes
a Brhama-Jnani.

Verse 9:-  Due to the intensity of the preceptor's benevolence,
and in his flow of grace, one will get traanquility and perfect
peace and enjoys immense bliss.  All the troubles have vanished
in this world for him.  Atman means Hrudayam., hrud + ayam,
so Atman resides in his Heart, whether he is in waking, dreaming
or sleeping state.

Verse 10:-  The great among the ascetics, with his guru's
grace, like the cosmic sun, looks at the entire universe, so
vivesected as the very image of Brahman, and conducts his
usual worldly duties, engrossed in Samadhi.
