8. Sampradayam - The Method:

Verse 1:

உடல்பொருள் ஆவி உதகத்தால் கொண்டு
படர்வினைப் பற்றறப் பார்த்துக் கைவைத்து
நொடியின் அடிவைத்து நுண்ணுணர் வாங்கிக்
கடிய பிறப்பறக் காட்டினன் நந்தியே.  (1)


Lord appears as Siva Guru and gives initiation

My body, wealth and life,
He took from me as sacrificial offering,
Through ritual appropriate;
He directed his spiritual glance at me
And dispelled my Karma`s network to destruction;
And then He laid His hands on me
And planting His Feet on my head
In a trice imparted Spiritual Awareness
And thus my birth`s cycle He ended
He, the Nandi,
Through these acts of Diksha, successive.


Arunachala Siva.

7.  Siva Lingam:


Verse 1:


குரைக்கின்ற வாரிக் குவலயம் நீரும்
பரக்கின்ற காற்றும் பயில்கின்ற தீயும்
நிரைக்கின்ற வானிவை நீண்டகன் றானை
வரைத்து வலம்செயு மாறறி யேனே. (1)


Siva is Immanent and Transcendent

He pervades the roaring waters of the seas
He permeates the spreading winds and flaming fire
Thus is He immanent in all Nature
Yet I know Him not, adore Him not.

Arunachala Siva.

6.  Jnana Lingam:


Verse 1:


உருவும் அருவும் உருவோ டருவும்
மருவும் பரசிவன் மன்பல் லுயிர்க்கும்
குருவும் எனநிற்கும் கொள்கைய னாகும்
தருவென நல்கும் சதாசிவன் தானே. (1)

Lord is Bounteous

As Form, the Formless and Form-Formless
Thus is Parasiva in all life immanent;
As Guru, too, He stands;
Unto the Kalpaka tree He bounties bestows
He, the Sadasiva.

Arunachala Siva.

5. Atma Lingam:

Verse 1:


அகார முதலாய் அனைத்துமாய் நிற்கும்
உகார முதலாய் உயிர்ப்பெய்து நிற்கும்
அகார உகாரம் இரண்டும் அறியில்
அகார உகாரம் இலிங்கம தாமே. (1)

In the Beginning was Aum

Akaram (A) as beginning, all exist
Ukaram (U) as beginning, all life exists
If Akaram Ukaram are together known
Akaram Ukaram is but Linga divine.

Arunachala Siva.

4. Sadasiva Lingam:

Verse 1:


கூடிய பாதம் இரண்டும் படிமிசை
பாடிய கையிரண் டெட்டும் பரந்தெழும்
தேடும் முகம்ஐந்தும் செங்கயல் மூவைந்தும்
நாடும் சதாசிவ நல்லொளி முத்தே. (1)


Sadasiva form with Five Faces

His twin Feet are planted on earth below;
The ten hands, the holy in praise sing,
In directions all spread;
Five His Faces that are sought,
Five times three his eyes fiery;
Thus is Sadasiva that you seek
The Pearl that is lustrous, beyond, beyond compare.

Arunachala Siva.

3. Pinda Lingam -  The human form is Siva Linga:


Verse 1:


மானுடர் ஆக்கை வடிவு சிவலிங்கம்
மானுடர் ஆக்கை வடிவு சிதம்பரம்
மானுடர் ஆக்கை வடிவு சதாசிவம்
மானுடர் ஆக்கை வடிவு திருக்கூத்தே. (1)


Human form is Siva Linga

The Human Form is like Siva Lingam
The Human Form is like Chidambaram
The Human Form is like Sadasivam
The Human Form is like the Holy Dance, forsooth.

2.  Anda Lingam: Lingam as the universe manifest:

Verse 1:


இலிங்கம தாகுவ தியாரும் அறியார்
இலிங்கம தாகுவ தெண்டிசை யெல்லாம்
இலிங்கம தாகுவ தெண்ணெண் கலையும்
இலிங்கம தாக எடுத்த துலகே.  (1)




Linga or Sadasiva is World manifest

They know not what Linga is
Linga is directions eight
Linga is Kalas, eight times eight
It is as Linga the world emerged.

Arunachala Siva.

Tantra 7:

ARadharam - Six Adharas:


Verse 1:


நாலும் இருமூன்றும் ஈரைந்தும் ஈராறும்
கோலின்மேல் நின்ற குறிகள் பதினாறும்
மூலங்கண் டாங்கே முடிந்த முதல்இரண்டும்
காலங்கண் டான்அடி காணலும் ஆமே. (1)



The Six Adharas and their petals

Piercing the Chakras that are petaled
Four, Six, Ten and Twelve
And the Six and Ten still above;
Lo! Behold then the Twin petaled Center finale;
You have indeed beheld the Holy Feet of the Timeless One.

Arunachala Siva.

14. Pakvan - One who is a mature Siva devotee:


Verse 1:


தொழிலறி வாளர் சுருதிகண் ணாகப்
பழுதறி யாத பரம குருவை
வழியறி வார்நல் வழியறி வாளர்
அழிவறி வார்மற்றை யல்லா தாரே. (1)



They who find the Path

Scriptures to guide them,
The Disciples Fit
Find the blemish-less Guru;
They know their job and so find the Path;
The rest are to destruction destined.


Arunachala Siva.

13. Apakvan -  One who is not a mature Siva-devotee:


Verse 1:


குருட்டினை நீக்கும் குருவினைக் கொள்ளார்
குருட்டினை நீக்காக் குருவினைக் கொள்வார்
குருடுங் குருடும் குருட்டாட்டம் ஆடிக்
குருடுங் குருடும் குழிவிழு மாறே. (1)

Blind leading the Blind

They seek not the Guru that blindness cures
They seek the Guru that cures not blindness;
The blind and the blind in a blind dance shuffled
And the blind and the blind in a deep pit together fell.


Arunachala Siva.

12. Siva Vesham:

Verse 1:


அருளால் அரனுக் கடிமைய தாகிப்
பொருளாந் தனதுடற் பொற்பது நாடி
இருளான தின்றி இருஞ்செயல் அற்றோர்
தெருளாம் அடிமைச் சிவவேடத் தாரே. (1)

Liege-robe of Siva

By Hara`s Grace they become His liege-men;
Within the body mansion, they seek His golden throne;
Darkness dispelled, they know of deeds none, good and bad;
Thus they stand steadfast in the liege-robe of Siva.

Arunachala Siva.

11.  Jnana Vesham:

Verse 1:

ஞான மிலார் வேடம் பூண்டும் நரகத்தார்
ஞானமுள் ளோர்வேடம் இன்றெனில் நன்முத்தர்
ஞான முளதாக வேண்டுவார் நக்கன்போல்
ஞான முளவேடம் நண்ணிநிற் பாரே. (1)


Jnana is All; not robes

Sans Jnana, robe but leads to hell
Sans robe, Jnana yet leads to Mukti;
When they seek Jnana,
They shall seek Lord and pray,
Their hearts robed in Jnana way.

Arunachala Siva.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Our Bhagavan-Stories
« on: November 16, 2015, 08:30:02 AM »

There is a verse, benedictory.  Bhagavan Ramana is like what?  He is like a large deep ocean of
milk. All the worldly activities around Him are like little waves on the ocean's shore. "Aparasatchit sukavari......"  He is non-moving, deep delving, calm, wave-less ocean of milk.  Ocean of Sat
Chit Ananda.  Ananda is His nature.  Chit, Self Knowledge is His Power.  He is the One, Sat,
without the second.  The entire world, people running around with all sorts of egoistic problems, challenges, doubts, fears, unstable happiness, miseries, anger and hate --- are like waves.
Without bothering about the waves,  if one goes into the ocean, he can dive deep into that
Paramananda Sagara.

Arunachala Siva.

« on: November 16, 2015, 08:26:24 AM »


David Godman, in one of his talks with some Westerner has said that it is quite rare to witness
a person like Bhagavan Ramana who is both enlightened and saintly. 

I also agree with him.  There are only three in my view where both saintliness and enlightenment
were together.  One is Bhagavan Ramana and the other is Chandrasekhara Saraswati
of Kanchi Math, and Chandrasekhara Bharati.  All the three were extraordinary.

There are many people who were enlightened but not saintly, at least, in outward behavior.
Seshadri Swamigal and earlier Kaduveli Siddhar [about whom I wrote] were such types.

There are many who are saintly in their disposition but not self-enlightened.  There are numerous examples which I do not want to quote here.

Arunachala Siva.

On 28th January 1946, P.B. Ray, who has been staying in Tiruvannamalai for about a month now,
has finished his Bengali Life of Bhagavan.  He read the dedication, translated into English, before Bhagavan and said that he had heard about Bhagavan from somebody in Madras some years ago,
and soon after he began writing this Life and it has taken some four years to complete it.  Bhagavan
then said that long ago some Bengali had written a small life sketch of His in Bengali papers or
journals about Him. Ray said that he had written those two articles now mentioned by
Bhagavan Ramana.

Thereupon, Bhagavan searched for the other Bengali article and traced it and gave it to Ray for
perusal. It was a journal called AMRUT and published in 1934.  The author of the
article was Jagadeesananda Swami of the Ramakrishna Mission.  Ray perused it and said in the
evening that the article touched all points but somehow omitted to make any mention
about the experience of Bhagavan arising from the idea of death and resulting in His Self Realization
which happened in Madurai in 1896, before His coming to Tiruvannamalai.
