Bhagavan Ramana has said:


All answers come from within, the answer is the inquirer.  The Guru outside pushes you in and the Guru
inside pulls you from within.

Verse 7:


அன்னே இவையுஞ் சிலவோ பலவமரர்
    உன்னற் கரியான் ஒருவன் இருஞ்சீரான்
சின்னங்கள் கேட்பச் சிவனென்றே வாய்திறப்பாய்
    தென்னாஎன் னாமுன்னம் தீசேர் மெழுகொப்பாய்
என்னானை என்னரையன் இன்னமுதென் றெல்லோமுஞ்
    சொன்னோங்கேள் வெவ்வேறாய் இன்னந் துயிலுதியோ
வன்னெஞ்சப் பேதையர்போல் வாளா கிடத்தியால்
    என்னே துயிலின் பரிசேலோ ரெம்பாவாய்.




O mother,
are these too a few of your traits?
He is the peerless One Impossible to know of by the many celestial;
He is The God of sublime greatness.
When divine instruments Blare His glory,
you would ope your lips and say:
``Siva,
Siva!
`` Even before the sound `Tennaa` is uttered,
you would Melt like wax in fire.
Now listening to our several praises Of Him as `my Chief,
my Monarch and my nectarean One` Will you still slumber on?
Like the addle-pated and hardened ones,
you lie abed in indolence.
What can We say of the greatness of such sleep,
Empaavaai !


Arunachala Siva.

While the body requires at least 8 hours of sleep daily, it also requires it at a particular time
when it will enable optimum performance for its maintenance activities.  Your sleep should follow
the natural rhythm for it be to beneficial.  Generally, sleeping between 10 pm and 6 am is good
for the body.  It is even better if you can sleep earlier, say 9 pm. and wake up at 5.am to the call
of the birds.  You cannot go to sleep at 2 am. and wake up at 10 am. and think that you are giving
the body adequate rest. It is said every hour of sleep before midnight is worth two hours after it.


There is an old saying that early to bed and early to rise makes one healthy, wealthy and wiser.
If we look at the nature, every creature generally goes to sleep early after sunset and wake up
early in the morning. We too have to emulate them,  It is not good to sleep after sunrise as  the sun
rays are not good for sleeping. Your sleep will be disturbed and you and you will have more dreams
if you sleep after sunrise. At night,your body produces melatonin, a harmone that makes you sleepy.
During the day, sunlight triggers the brain to inhibit melatonin production so you feel awake and alert.
Therefore, sleeping in the day time is not a healthy practice.

Arunachala Siva.

This part of the doubt is answered. How are we to know that the Atman is without Vastu
parichcheda (limitation by identical things?

As Atman is all pervading, it cannot have limitation by identical things.  Things are differentiated
by three kinds of limitations.  - Sajatiya (limitation by things of its own nature)  Vijatiya  (limitarions
of things different from  it).  Svagata (internal differences).

The difference of one tree from another tree is Sajatiya difference.  The difference between a tree
and other substances like stone, mud, etc., are Vijayita differences or the differences between objects.
When the differences with in tree itself, i.e.between its flowers, fruits, branches, trunk etc.,
are taken into account, we are referring to Svagata bheda or internal differences. As none of these
differences are possible regarding the Atman, we have to conclude that the Atman is without any
kind of differentiation.

Arunachala Siva.

?It is here in the South, our Lord ? Guru Nandi --,
Performed tapas, and came by ever-growing grace eternal;
The lord who sports the flood in His matted hair
And wields the fire in His hand,
Abides here in Aiyaru.

And adored Him on the banks of the river Kampai

In the great Ambalam, for ever, in the presence
Of our Mother, the divine liana of true tapas.
Which other direction can rival the South in its glory?

It flourishes as the treasure of those
Who adore the Lord with single-minded devotion.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Our Bhagavan-Stories
« on: December 23, 2015, 07:25:32 AM »



Prabhavati Devi got married not long ago.  It must have been a year back. For about two years
before her marriage, she was staying in the Asramam.  She was a girl from Maharashtra,good looking
and cultured.  She wanted to be a great bhakta like Saint Meerabhai and so used to sing
and dance and say that she would never marry, and she would don ochre robe. She behaved like a
naughty child before Bhagavan.  Bhagavan knew that her naughtiness would not leave her until
she got married.  As last, somehow, she did get married.  Immediately after the wedding,
the bride and the bridegroom came in the wedding attire to the Asramam, with their relatives and
offerings of fruits and flowers, and  bowed down before Bhagavan Ramana.

After a stay for two or three days, she came to Bhagavan one morning at 8'O clock with her
husband seeking Bhagavan's blessings before leaving to set up home in her husband's
place.  Squirrels were playing about Bhagavan's sofa and peacocks were wandering outside the Hall.
There were not many people.  It was calm and quiet in the Hall.  The young man bowed down to
Bhagavan with awe and respect, took leave of Him and stood waiting on the side of the doorway.
With downcast looks and bubbling shyness and tearful eyes,the child of the Asramam while waiting there for Bhagavan's permission, looked like Shakuntala trying to tear away from the Kanva Maharshi's Ashram.  Bhagavan nodded His head in token of approval and then she bowed down to Him. No
sooner had she crossed the threshold, Bhagavan remaked looking at Suri Nagamma, "It was only
yesterday, she had the chapter of Krishnavatar in Bhagavatam, copied out by Sundaresa Iyer."
I said with delight, "She will come with a child in her arms, when she comes here next year."

Meanwhile, she began to sing in a full throated song full of devotion and voice as sweet as a nightingale
while going round the Hall in Pradakshina.  Bhagavan Ramana was so evidently moved and like Kanva Maharshi himself, He said: "Do you hear the hymn from Mukundamala?"  My eyes
were filled with tears.

24th November 1945.)
