34.  UyiruNNip Pathu - Decade on Siva who swallows the mind:


O Lord-Owner, if my hoary and cruel malady of karma assails me, You do not save me;
so if I, the one of evil karma, toil hard, can I gain salvation at all?
O Consort of Uma ! Be pleased to redeem and rule me.
If I err, should You not forgive me?
When I call You aloud thus: ``Is this proper, O One in whose matted locks crest the crescent rests!
`` O God, should You leave Your servitor, not blessed?

Arunachala Siva.

33.  Kuzhaitha Pathu -  Decade on Melting.



குழைத்தாற் பண்டைக் கொடுவினைநோய்
    காவாய் உடையாய் கொடுவினையேன்
உழைத்தால் உறுதி யுண்டோதான்
    உமையாள் கணவா எனைஆள்வாய்
பிழைத்தாற் பொறுக்க வேண்டாவோ
    பிறைசேர் சடையாய் முறையோஎன்
றழைத்தால் அருளா தொழிவதே
    அம்மா னேஉன் னடியேற்கே. (1)

Even animals and plants can have liberation.  What is necessary is only a vasana-free mind. 
It is with vasanas that we get into all problems in life.  There is an interesting anecdote
about Cow Lakshmi's case.  When Bhagavan Ramana was with Mother Azhagamma, keeping one
hand on her chest and another on her head, and caused subsidence of all vasanas.  He lifed His
hands only after mind and prana merged in Heart.  In Cow Lakshmi's case, Bhagavan Ramana did
not stay with her, till her last breath. When someone asked why that difference, Bhagavan Ramana
replied:  Why should I?  She had no vasanas left, even before her last breath.  Hence there was no
need to stay till end.

There is one story in Arunachala Puranam.  There was one cactus-bush on the Hill.  It was waiting for deliverance.  When Uma came to the Hill, for doing penance to get half the form of Annamalai, she
accidentally trampled on the cactus bush.  The bush caught fire and got destroyed, with one huge
flame rising about in the sky and reaching the Hill, to convey its deliverance to Uma!

Arunachala Siva.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana says:

In the waking state, all my five senses are operating.  I see, smell, taste, hear and touch with my
sense organs.  The mind, body and senses are all active.

Suppose I go to sleep.  I am not getting deep sleep.  There is a dream.  In the dream, I see
Arunachala Hill, I smell fragrant flowers of the hillside, I taste nice Asramam food, I hear someone
explaining Sad Darsanam, I touch the books in the bookshop. In the dream, I am doing all these,
without my body and senses being there.  This is done by my mind.  This mind, which sees etc.,
without body and sense organs, is called Mind or Jiva or Suksuhuma
Sarira and SUBTLE BODY.

In the deep sleep, the mind is also not there.  But there is the Witness.  This only makes me tell my
wife that I had a good sleep the previous night.  This is Karana Sarira or Causal Body.

Arunachala Siva.

In the world's philosophy, the greatest blunder was committed by Dascretes who said:
I think, therefore I am!

Nothing can be farther from truth than this.  One does not become Real, just because he is thinking.
One is Real and therefore he thinks.  Even this thinking is not necessary to realize the Real, the Self.
There are plants and animals , which do not think as we do, but they are Real.  They know their reality
within.  They can not tell it outside, that is all.

Arunachala Siva.

32. Prarthanaip Pathu - A decade of prayer:

கலந்து நின்னடியா ரோடன்று
    வாளா களித்தி ருந்தேன்
புலர்ந்து போன காலங்கள்
    புகுந்து நின்ற திடர்பின்னாள்
உலர்ந்து போனேன் உடையானே
    உலவா இன்பச் சுடர்காண்பான்
அலந்து போனேன் அருள்செய்யாய்
    ஆர்வங் கூர அடியேற்கே .(1)

That day when I was redeemed by You I merely mingled with Your servitors,
experiencing empty joy. Then time rolled on.  In the succeeding days,
troubles barged in and took hold of me.
O my Owner, I wilted;
I languished for the vision of Your sweet and unfading Light.
So bless me that my love for You abounds evermore.

Arunachala Siva,

Unless I see the Way of Sleeping and Not-sleeping,
I will not have attained anything really fruitful,
O Green Parrot!

Of being born again and again
And will I seize hold of my Lord
Re-entering not this world again?

And stand before Lord
As a picture immobile,
Will He think of me?
