General Discussion / Re: Bhagavan, Now and to Come
« on: December 21, 2015, 01:41:15 PM »
Bhagavan time and again said that the Guru and the Self are the same. Because we think we have
a body we identify the Guru with a body. The Guru takes a form accessible to the sincere sadhaka
to draw him on her into the Heart. If we truly believe that Bhagavan is the Guru, then we should
approach Him, until we truly knows for ourselves, that He is our Self.  By taking Bhagavan as our
real nature the sense of duality is removed. Through effort and grace we become one.

This is why our approach to Bhagavan is important.  If we see Him just as a man, albeit wise old
man, we miss the point.  If by some nebulous conception we see Him as beyond us, we face a chasm
we cannot hope to broach and in that case, Bhagavan may as well be a distant abstraction for all the
good it will do us.  We need to form an intimate bond with Bhagavan.  In essence we create Bhagavan
in our consciousness.

If we constantly watch a TV screen or computer screen too long, our eyes will tire out fast and over the
period of time, the vision will begin to reduce requiring spectacles.  Many spend late hours before the TV
or a computer screen and to go sleep only after 1 O' clock, which is very unhealthy practice. Or they
may go to parties, clubs, or movies and sleep late which is again unhealthy. If we are sleeping at
irregular times, it will affect the quality of sleep. Some would feel that they have not had enough sleep
even though they would have slept for 8 to 9 hours.

The quality of sleep directly affects the quality of your waking life, including your mental sharpness,
productivity, emotional balance, creativity, physical vitality, and even your weight.  Just as exercise
and nutritious food are essential for good health, and happiness, so is sleep.
No other activity delivers so many benefits with so little effort.

Verse 5:

மாலறியா நான்முகனுங் காணா மலையினைநாம்
    போலறிவோம் என்றுள்ள பொக்கங்க ளேபேசும்
பாலூறு தேன்வாய்ப் படிறீ கடைதிறவாய்
    ஞாலமே விண்ணே பிறவே அறிவரியான்
கோலமும் நம்மைஆட் கொண்டருளிக் கோதாட்டுஞ்
    சீலமும் பாடிச் சிவனே சிவனேயென்
றோலம் இடினும் உணராய் உணராய்காண்
    ஏலக் குழலி பரிசேலோ ரெம்பாவாய். 

``We know of Annamalai unknown to Vishnu and un-beheld By Brahma,
the Four-faced.
`` Thus you -- The deceptious one in whose mouth,
milk and honey flow--,
Articulate falsehoods in which you are well versed.
Come and unbar the doors of your threshold.
the earth,
the heaven and the dwellers Of other planets,
admiring His beauty -- rare to be Comprehended --,
sing of His great qualities By which He enslaves us,
rids us of our flaws And rules us in grace.
Thus they hail Him And chant:
``Siva !
O Siva !
`` Though they cry hoarse,
You whose tresses are perfumed,
do not feel it,
do not feel it.
Such is your plight,
Empaavaai !

Then why are these three distinct terms applied to such an indivisible and unitary entity?

As Akasa is all pervading it is not subject to the limitation of space.  But (according to Indian
cosmology) Space originates and dissolves, so it is subject to time.  Hence to avoid over inclusion
(Ativyapti) in description, time is specified along with Space.  Time is not limited by Space.  Nor
is it limited by time, as an entity cannot be limited by itself.  But it is limited by matter.  A substance
present in one period of time may not be present in  another period. To avoid this over inclusion
Atman  is said to be not limited  by matter also.  Atman alone is characterized by non limitation
by Space, Time and Matter.  Hence the specification of the three characteristics.

Today is Vaikunta Ekadasi.  This Ekadasi is considered to be the most important one.

I have no right to write about it.  I am eating as usual because of my diabetic problem.

My wife fasts the whole day.

I request Atmavichar to write  about Vaikunta Ekadasi.

Dear ramanaduli,

I am not aware correctly.  There is one temple on the way from to the Temple.  It is a small
temple of Siva and they call it as one built by  him.

Verse 30:

என்று கூற இறைஞ்சி இயம்புவார்
வென்ற பேரொளி யார்செய் விழுத்தவம்
நன்று கேட்க விரும்பு நசையினோம்
இன்றெ மக்குரை செய்தருள் என்றலும்.

Hearing this they worshipfully beseeched him;
?Great is our desire to hear of the gloried tapas
Of him who blazes forth in triumphal lustre great!
May you, in grace, be pleased to narrate it.?

You, Our Lord, never adore aught but the lotus-feet
Of Sambhu; what may this be??
Thus questioned, he said: ?Nambi Arooran
Hath enshrined in his bosom the great Lord;
He is verily worthy of our adoration.?

Verse 28:

கைகள் கூப்பித் தொழுதெழுந் தத்திசை
மெய்யில் ஆனந்த வாரி விரவிடச்
செய்ய நீள்சடை மாமுனி செல்வுழி
ஐயம் நீங்க வினவுவோ ரந்தணர்.

As the great Saint of matted hair -- long and ruddy --,
Folding his hands in adoration rose up and walked
Toward the direction whence gushed forth the great light,
All athrill, as if immersed in a sea of joy,
The holy ones, to have their doubt resolved,
Implored him thus:

Arunachala Siva.

அந்தி வான்மதி சூடிய அண்ணல்தாள்

Thereupon the Saint invoked in thought the feet
Of the Lord -- the wearer of the crepuscular crescent --,
And said: ?By the grace of our Father,
He who incarnated in the South as the Lord of Navaloor
-- Gloried Van-Tondan --, doth now return.?

Verse  26:

அங்கண் ஓரொளி ஆயிர ஞாயிறு
பொங்கு பேரொளி போன்றுமுன் தோன்றிடத்
துங்க மாதவர் சூழ்ந்திருந் தாரெலாம்
இங்கி தென்கொல் அதிசயம் என்றலும்.

Before them all, gushed forth a growing light
With the great brilliance of a thousand suns;
The great tapaswins pure and others
Who sat encircling the Saint
Marveling said: ?What wonder is this!?

Verse 25:

அத்தர் தந்த அருட்பாற் கடலுண்டு
சித்தம் ஆர்ந்து தெவிட்டி வளர்ந்தவன்
பத்த ராய முனிவர்பல் லாயிரர்
சுத்த யோகிகள் சூழ இருந்துழி.

The Saint, of yore, was fed by the Ocean of Milk
By the grace of Lord Siva, the Father;
He grew solely sustained by the milk of Siva?s grace;
Myriads of holy Saints and Suddha yogis sat encircling him.

This saint placed his feet on the crown
Of Yadhava, the king of Dwaraka;
Peerless is his service to Siva, the Lord of Bhootas,
And it known neither beginning nor end.

For ever meditates in blissful ecstasy
On Siva whose nature none can know.

The Lord holds an antelope in His (left) hand
And a mazhu in His (right) hand.
His matted hair where courses Ganga, is decked
With the young crescent
And a chaplet of (Konrai) flowers.
By reason of His enthronement here,
The presence of measureless glory
And the flourishing of the sheer purity of truth?s lusture,
Of Anapayan of Triumphant parasol white --
The fearless King that wields a righteous Sceptre.

Arunachala Siva.
