பொருளென வென்னைத்தன் பொற்கழல்
    காட்டிப் புகுந்தெனக்கிங்(கு)
அருளிய சீர்த்திரு ஞானசம்
    பந்த னருளிலர்போல்
வெருளின மானின்மென் நோக்கியை
    விட்டு விழுநிதியின்
திரளினை யாதரித் தால்நன்று
    சாலவென் சிந்தனைக்கே. (84)


Considering me even me, showing his auric Kazhal,
Entering my heart, holy Jnanasambandhan
Graced me. But O, heart, like his foe, leaving
The fawn out, you rent after the wealth heap.
This is no good to be after such usury on
Thus the hero counsels his heart.


Aruachala Siva.

வருந்துங் கொலாங்கழல், மண்மிசை
    யேகிடில் என்றுமென்றார்த்
திருந்தும் புகழ்ச்சண்பை ஞானசம்
    பந்தற்குச் சீர்மணிகள்
பொருந்துஞ் சிவிகை கொடுத்தனன்
    காண்;புண ரித்திகழ்நஞ்(சு)
அருந்தும் பிரான்நம் மரத்துறை
    மேய வரும்பொருளே. (83)


For if he walks upon the tough terrain,
It would irk his feet,  thinking thus, for the
King of Sanbai didn't Siva offer the gem - laid
Palanquin, that Siva lord who ate venom wild
Who graces in Aratturai as the rare
Ens entia giving ever especial gifts.

Arunachala Siva.

கண்ணார் திருநுத லோன்கோலக்
    காவில் கரநொடியால்
பண்ணார் தரப்பாடு சண்பையர்
    கோன்பாணி நொந்திடுமென்(று)
எண்ணா வெழுத்தஞ்சு மிட்டபொன்
    தாளங்க ளீயக்கண்டும்
மண்ணார் சிலர்சண்பை நாதனை
    யேத்தார் வருந்துவதே. (82)


In Tirukkolakkaa is forehead - eyed Siva is.
As Jnanasambandhar with his clapping hands
Hymned, to relieve the stressed palms, didn't
Siva offer golden cymbals inscribed with
the Panchakasara. This known, if one does
Not worship Sanbai Lord, is that not grievous miss?

Arunachala Siva.

வலையத் திணிதோள் மிசைமழ
    வேற்றி, மனைப்புறத்து
நிலையெத் தனைபொழு தோகண்ட(து)
    ஊரனை நீதிகெட்டார்
குலையக் கழுவின் குழுக்கண்ட
    வன்திகழ் கொச்சையன்ன
சிலையொத்த வாள்நுதல்! முன்போல்
    மலர்க திருக்கண்களே.(81)

Several times oft with braceleted shoulders,
And child upon it, she had to flee home
In the outer streets given up. For her eyes
To flower in joy O, Lord of Kaazhi, whose
Jnanasambandhar gallowed the Samanas group
Swerving from Dharmic path, do that to be done.

Arunachala Siva.

பாடிய செந்தமி ழாற்பழங்
    காசு பரிசில் பெற்ற
நீடிய சீர்த்திரு ஞானசம்
    பந்தன் நிறைபுகழான்
நாடிய பூந்திரு நாவுக் கரசோ
    டெழில்மிழலைக்
கூடிய கூட்டத்தி னாலுள
    தாய்த்திக் குவலயமே. (80)


his lone world famished turned happy
Solely by the devotees- throng in Tiruveezhi
Mizhalai where Jnanasambandhar with old
Bezant and famed pure holy Naavukkaresan
Joined to pray in Classic Tamizh to end
The famine grieving the masses.

The frisking bulged viral fish drink the uberous
Uddered buffalos that rain milk on fields .
As - pounds of Kocchaivayam. Its Lord Jnana -
Sambandhar, with gold plated gem laid bejeweled
Mien of Tamizh is the one fit to be sung; nor any
Even of he were to ride a royal elephant.

தனமே தருபுகழ்ச் சைவ

மனமே புகுந்த மடக்கொடி
    யே!மலர் மேலிருந்த
அனமே! யமிர்தக் குமுதச்செவ்
    வாயுங்க ளாயமென்னும்
இனமே பொலியவண் டாடெழிற்
    சோலையு ளெய்துகவே. (78)


O, young liana entering my heart like the grace
Of Jnanasambandhar the crest jewel of Saivism
Ever yielding opulence and fame. O, flower
Swan your maiden clan is ambrosial nenuphar
Ruddy mouths. Get into the grove of lustrous
Bees buzzing to get tightened in embrace. (78)

நல்கென் றடியி னிணைபணி
    யார்;சண்பை நம்பெருமான்
பல்கும் பெரும்புகழ் பாடகில்
    லார்சிலர் பாழ்க்கிறைத்திட்(டு)
ஒல்கு முடம்பின ராய்,வழி
    தேடிட் டிடறிமுட்டிப்
பில்கு மிடமறி யார்கெடு

Many do not submit to the feet - pair of Kaazhi Lord
Jnanasambandhar asking for boon. Unable to sing
His limitless fame, some are lost in chaos.
Sagging in health, seeking via finding not,
Tripped down, hurdled oft only to emerge
Knowing not the where-about to go spoiled as ghosts.

Arunachala Siva.

In the Kongu land is a hill namely Tirucchengodu.
With peaks flash - illumined. There snowy fall
Ailed to its finish. O, Lord, King and his tribe
And all that surround  exceeding there,
The great valiant worded Jnanasambandhar
Offered a word of finale, fragrant diffuse.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Our Bhagavan-Stories
« on: December 17, 2015, 06:19:18 AM »


Visions while in Arunachala:

 
Yes.  Bhagavan Ramana and several other yogis and jnanis
who had lived in Arunachala had such vision.  Ordinary
mortals cannot have such experiences.  But people have
strange experiences in Arunachala.  Once a Keralite, Sukumaran,
told me, that while in a room, he had a sudden call from Ramana
in the early morning around 2 am.,  [not in dreams] to go round the Hill immediately to have his problems solved.  He took his bath and went around the Hill immediately.

General Discussion / Bhagavan, Now and to Come
« on: December 16, 2015, 01:07:47 PM »
(Editorial of Mountain Path, July - Sept. 2015)

One of the challenges those of us who are devotees of Sri Ramana Maharshi will face in the years to come,
is the inevitable evolution of the accepted history of Bhagavan and the question of what is true and what is
patently false.  As the years pass through who were witness to Bhagavan's life during His physical sojourn
on this earth, are disappearing.  One day there will be no one with direct experience of what it was like to
be in Bhagavan's physical presence and therefore there will inevitably be no one with direct authority to
refute false impressions and stories, which inevitably circulate as people, for their own reasons, conjure
up images of Bhagavan by creatively reworking stories about Him according to their own bias or, however
well meaning, explain what Bhagavan really meant. 

In the previous  editorial we discussed Bhagavan's written words as the final authority.  In this editorial
we deliberate on Sri Ramana Mharshi the physical man and His spiritual legacy and what history
will make of it, for it will more than likely change and probably be misrepresented. The future will
alter it and appropriate what is convenient for its own purposes.  It will also give well meaning future,
commentators the chance to degrade the purity of the teaching and the person of Sri Ramana Maharshi,
not out of malice but because they do not any better and cannot see beyond their own limited
horizon.  The perception of Bhagavan will change with time according to the needs of the zeitgeist.
There is the danger that Bhagavan will become superhuman that it will make us feel it is impossible
to walk in His footsteps.

Arunachala Siva.

General Discussion / Re: The Alchemy of Sri Bhagavan:
« on: December 16, 2015, 12:48:40 PM »
Health-wise, of course, it has been a disaster.  I had a stroke of temporary paralysis and three heart
attacks, the last of which occurred in March 2014.  My recovery from the last, according to the doctors,
was nothing short of a miracle for a man my age,  (I will turn 84 shortly).  The miracle undoubtedly
was wrought by Sri Bhagavan.

This distressing medical history did not, surprisingly, affect me mentally.  It is the physical infirmity
that haunts most elderly people and renders them depressed. By Sri Bhagavan's grace, no such thing
happened in my case. 

One of my earlier afflictions was a loss of self esteem caused by my failure to make a mark in my career.
I realize now that it was entirely stupid of me to have set myself a rather difficult target. My competence,
apparently, did not match my ambition.  But I did not recognize this then.

General Discussion / Re: Laghu Vasudeva Mananam:
« on: December 16, 2015, 12:36:12 PM »
How can we prove that the bliss we get in sleep has three characteristics you mention, viz., permanence,
unlimited and unsurpassableness?


First, take the 'unlimitedness'  The joy we got from all external objects like food, fragrance, sexuality,etc.,
are limited by objects that give such joy.  When they are withdrawn, one feels deprivation.  Happiness
in deep sleep has no such limiting adjuncts, which on withdrawal, give a sense of deprivation. Happiness
alone is the the experience one gets in deep sleep. So that joy has no limitation or adjunct.

In deep sleep, we can experience the absence of any suffering.  We do not feel any indication of the
bliss.in that state.  So from the experience of deep sleep, how can we get any idea of indication of
bliss? Surely one cannot experience what is not present to be experienced.

One can remember or have memory only of what one has experienced.  This universal proposition
is true regard to our experience of deep sleep also.  For, when we wake up from sleep. So we say,
'I slept happily till now'.  We do not, on the other hand, say, 'I slept without any suffering.'  So the experience
that all get in deep sleep is one of the happiness.

வருவார் உருவின் வழிவழி
    வைத்த வனமருந்தும்
திருவார் இருந்த செழுநகரச்
    செவ்வித் திருவடிக்காள்
தருவான் தமிழா கரகரம்
    போற்சலம் வீசக்கண்டு
வெருவா வணங்கொண்டல்
    கள்மிண்டி வானத்து மின்னியவே. (75)



He comes in form. He shall serve the maiden
Of weal in the fertile urb below the skies
Down the days grieving, her holy feet. He is
The Tamizh - Form Jnana Sambandhan whose hands
Splash waters - fearing that not, emulating
Clouds neared and flashed their mercy.

Arunachala Siva.
