Verse  7:


காரு லாவிய வார்குழ லாள்கயற்
கண்ணி னாள்புயற் காலொளி மின்னிடை
வாரு லாவிய மென்முலை யாள்மலை மாதுடனாய்
நீரு லாவிய சென்னி யன்மன்னி
நிகரும் நாமமுந் நான்கு நிகழ்பதி
போரு லாவெயில் சூழ்பொழிற் பூந்தராய் போற்றுதுமே.


The lady with long tresses of hair like the sable cloud and eyes like carp fish, joining with a daughter of the mountain, who has soft breasts on which is worn a bodice, a waist as slender as the bright lightning emitted by clouds. The city which has twelve names which are in the proper order, where the Lord on whose head the water of the Ganga, is always moving, resides permanently. We will worship that Pūntarāi which has parks and surrounded by a wall of enclosure in which engines of warfare are always on the move.

General Discussion / Re: Two Lovers, One Beloved - Margaret Laulor:

Her response was to cut herself off from others, lest they should distract her, and intensify her prayer. It is an echo of Teresa's warning that souls become paralyzed when we are too caught up in the worldly affairs.

Both traditions believed in purgation through purifying the soul of sin which has roots in selfish desires.  Sufis held the belief that asceticism need be practiced only in the beginning stages, however we are told that Rabi'a continued it to the end of her life, thereby coming closer to the fulfillment of the ideal of Christian sainthood.  The Sufi practices of asceticism and pietism at this time were a reaction to an environment of luxury and worldly enjoyments, and legal formalities in Islam. Rabi'a is among the first Sufis to exalt the path of divine love at a time when the mystical path mostly followed self denial.

Chapter 37:

1. Ribhu: Nidagha!  Listen to the mysterious and the most wondrous secret that I am going to tell you.  Just by hearing even one verse, you shall attain instant liberation.

2.  This, what is seen as the supreme Brahman, appears so due to mind. All being only Consciousness, nothing in the least exists whatsoever.

3.  'This' verily does not exist.  Even the one nearby does not exist.  Evan an atom, be it one, is naught, is naught.  There is no doubt of this.

4. This transaction wherever it be, the news wherever it be, any form of bondage, any account of bondage, any activity of bondage or the highest,

5.  any true act, any truth, the certitude 'I am Brahman', sorrow, pleasure, or teaching, practice and the determination of attainment,

6. anything such as the Self, the supreme Self, or the individual Self, -- none of these exists separately. I am the body. I am the form. I am knowledgeable and wise,

7. I am of the form of effect and cause and the activities of the internal senses; not even one exists, not just one - contemplate thus.

Sri Ramana Maharshi has become the breath of our life, and without Him, we cannot exist.  He is our philosophical deity.  Meditation occurs spontaneously in the vicinity of
His Samadhi. A serene feeling always exists within the premises of the Asramam.  He condenses all thoughts, liquidates them and silences the mind.  He becomes the discoverer of the 'I' in us.  There are thousands of masters in the world who are giving diksha and upadesa.  Sri Ramana never thought Himself as a master or as one who gives diksha and upadesa to devotees, but directed His devotees towards the path of self realization just by His presence and divine silence.

There is a saying, 'The presence and divinity of a Sharana is best experienced and witnessed after death.'  Guru Ramana left His mortal coil in 1950 and is presence is even more alive and more intensely felt now.  He who did not care for food, clothing, and shelter. He who just a loin cloth, begged alms and burnt Himself in the scorching sun without awareness of the external body, now affectionately and caringly provides us with cool rooms and delicious food, and envelops us with the blanket of self knowledge. Guru Ramana is the supreme example of a real Guru.

Sri Vidyaranya comments that both the travelers believed they saw a gem at a distance lying unclaimed in the forest and undertook the same pursuit which however, ended with opposite results. For the first person, 'his so called knowledge' fortunately proved to be right while the 'same knowledge' proved fruitless for the other.

In both cases, the 'knowledge of gem' was erroneous to begin with, as neither of them saw the actual gem itself but merely mistook the emanating light as the gem. (This is a typical case of 'erroneous superimposition' discussed by Sri Sankara in Adhyasa Bhashya, his celebrated introduction to the Brahma Sutras. Snake-rope, silver-nectar, and ghost-post are popular examples of adhyasa.).  It was not a case of firm knowledge but only an optimistic suspicion, which was believed to be true initially.  But for the first one, pursuit of the 'erroneous perception' (bhrama pratyaksha) ended happily with a precious possession.  This then is a typical instance of a 'leading error' (Samvadi bhrama) because it did indeed 'lead' to the desired goal by a fortuitous coincidence.

It is this positive result that converts the 'initial premise' or 'erroneous knowledge' into 'true knowledge' (pramaa).  For the other one, the 'initial wrong knowledge' ended as
'final wrong knowledge' and so it was a case of 'misleading error' (Visamvadi bhrama).
The result, whether success or failure, then turns out to be ultimate arbiter of the 'soundness of the knowledge' while on the path.  The former is also called a 'beneficial'
or 'productive' error and the latter a 'deluding' or 'unfructifying' error.

நாறு பூம்பொழில் நண்ணிய காழியுள் நான்ம றைவல்ல ஞானசம் பந்தன்
ஊறும் இன்தமி ழால்உயர்ந் தார்உறை தில்லைதன்னுள்
ஏறு தொல்புகழ் ஏந்துசிற் றம்பலத் தீச னைஇசை யாற்சொன்ன பத்திவை

Jnana Sambandhan, who is well versed in all the four Vēdas and was born in Sirkazhi, which has pleasing gardens spreading fragrance. These ten verses which were composed in sweet Tamizh with music about the Lord in the exalted Chitrambalam, which has ever increasing ancient fame and which is situated in Tillai, where eminent people reside. Those who are capable of reciting them will join with the resident of the celestial world after leaving this world.  (Notes: Contrary to the distinguishing features of Sambandhar`s Tēvāram, the two things are omitted, 1. Ravanan has not been mentioned in the 8th verse, 2.  Brahman and Vishnu searching the feet and head of the Lord is not mentioned in the 9th verse.)

Padigam on Koil (Chidambaram) completed.

Jains who wander naked, (This refers to Digambara jains;), naked Jains, the followers of Buddha who wear a robe soaked in the yellow ochre of Marutam bark; Do not take the words of these people as truth. They are incapable of removing the sorrow of the world. In the Chitrambalam,  which is praised and worshipped by the learned people.
to do obeisance with both hands devotedly to the red feet wearing anklets, those who reached Thillai are capable of enjoying the fruits of being born as a human being in this world.

One who has adorned yourself with abundant well-blossomed chest-garlands made of Koṉṟai flower, Indian Laburnam one who has on the long matted locks the crescent moon, the Chief! In the beautiful Thillai where riches are abundant and which are streets where beautiful temple cars are dragged, in the Chitrambalam, which is beautiful by the goodness of ceaseless worship conducted with pomp. You resided with desire with your beauty. We shall praise your famous feet.
