Dear Raju, Very nice.  I also remember his menstruation, when
he was playing the role of Radha.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai,  Yes.  Sri RK suggested to act like noble souls,
gods etc.,  Even in normal worldly life, we see mediocre students
keeping the brilliant students as role models, following such
pracices like studying at regular hours, doing the homework
promptly etc., and impoving in their studies.  Many Western
devotees kept fellow seekers or Bhagavan as role models and
stopped eating meat.  Devaraja Mudaliar also adopted vegetarianism
like that.  Many ashramites got up in early mornings, which was
not their usual practice, by following Bhagavan and other Ashramites.

Sri RK, did that with intense bhavana.  It is said that he grew
a tail when he was meditating or acting like Hanuman.  During
his Islamic sadhana, he literally forgot Kali and other Hindu gods
and hated idol worship.  Intense conviction is essential.  Ribhu
Gita also says the same.  A worm inside the cocoon, intensely
meditated on the mother, and came out of the cocoon as a fly!
Saint Manikkavachagar says in Tiruvachakam:  "Natakathal
un-adiyar pol nadithu, veedahathe puguvan vizhaii hindren!"
"I am acting as your devotee and am eager to rush to Sivaloka!"

Arunachala Siva.   

Dear Raju, Yes.  The Jnani is like a shuttle in the weaving
machine.  The weaver is Brahman, and the Jnani moves here
and there, or stays put, as the the weaver, Brahman wants.
He has not thinking or action of his own.  This what Saint
Manikkavachagar says in Tiruvachakam, Decad of Surrender.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Raju,  Yes.  Bhagavan Sri Ramana, is the epitome of
Ajati.  Every characteristic that is mentioned in Advaita
Vedanta sciptures, can be seen in Bhagavan Ramana.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Raju, Yes. It cannot be touched or spoken about.  That
is why, Vedas try to reach It and come back failing.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Raju,  Daksinamoorthy, Siva, is sitting under banyan tree,
which is called vada-ala-maram, in Tamil.  Here 'vada' means
uthra, the North.  He is the Spiritual North Pole, for all seekers,
His teaching is Silence.   And the sincere seekers understood his
silence and though that the Brahma tattva, the principle of Brahman.
Their doubts are cleared and they got a moksha-sadhanam, the
way to Liberation.  This is puranic meaning, though esoterically
he is formless.

Arunachala Siva. 

Dear Raju, Well said.  Ganapati, is AUM, the primordial sound,
whose purport and meaning has been described by his younger
brother, Skanda to Siva.  Ganapati Muni calls himself as the elder
brother of Bhagavan Sri Ramana, in Ramana Gita.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 61:-  The ever lasting Bliss, which has no birth, death,
near and far, pervading all places, most fertile, the means
to cross the ocean of life, is Oneness, the Supreme, fearless
and devoid of all gunas.  This is the Truth, Reality and Brahman,
the one without a second.

Verse 62:-  Here, Sadasiva Brahmendra, has stated in sixtytwo
slokas, by the grace of his guru, the essence of Vedanta.

Verse 63:- Who ever recites this Atma Vidya Vilasam and contemplates
the purport, will merge with Brahama Jnana.  He will attain and
become Perfection and Liberation.

Verse 64:-  This book of Atma Vidya Vilasam is written by Sri
Sadasiva Brahmendra, addressing Brahman, who is none else
his guru, Parama Sivendra, Siva.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse 58:-  As long as the Jnani possesses his body, he lives
to experience of past 'vasanas' and when they are experienced
and annihilated, he will be detached from the bondage of mortal
body, and becomes the Immortal Bliss, Brahman, without
sadecha and videcha, that is good and bad 'vasanas'.

Verse 59:-  There is no other object other than Brahman.  He
is Supreme Bliss.  He is incomparable, imperishable, second
to none, Ananda.  Thus Truth is Knowledge, Bliss and Existence.
The pot is occupied by space and space is occupied in the pot,
and when the pot is broken, the space inside the pot and outside
the pot, becomes One.  Thus the whole universe, regardless of
objects, is pervded with Consciousness.

Verse 60:-  Brahman is most subtle.  The 'I' is nothing but
the perceiver, Brahman.  He pervades in all objects, including
trees.  All experiences, shapes or colours, ignorance or knowledge,
desire or hatred, anger or pleasure, all is Brahman.  He is the
same, in creation, sustenance or dissolution.

Verse 54:-  That which cannot be seen or described in words,
that Supreme State and Bliss and most effulgent on that Ancient,
that Brahman is endeared to a Jnani, all the time.  Having got
rid of the bondage, he wanders happily and freely.

Verse 55:-  The realized Jnani, becomes a torch bearer to
the society. He engrosses in Brahman and his mind will become
one with Atman, and enjoys the universe, without desires,
ambitions and without work.  He radiates brilliantly all the time.

Verse 56:-  The Jnani by virtue of the excellent benevolence of
his own preceptor, possessing firm knowledge of Oneness,
totally annihilaes all duality.  He deserts the body all the time,
and rules the earth with his radiance.  He is in the form of
Brahman, the Brahma Swaroopa.

Verse 57:-  The person who knows Brahman becomes Brahman,
the only Real and all the world is unreal.  The Jiva is also Brahman
and is nondual.

Verse 51:-  The Jnani in all matters behaves with balance.
He will not think of the past or will he think of the forthcoming
in future.  Even the present objects, he will not see with any
special intention.  He is unconcerned with past, present and
future.  Come what may, he looks at it with equanimity.

Bhagavan did not bother about the completion of the Maha
Kumbhabishekam, the conscrecation of Mother's Temple,
and when devotees expressed about inadequacy of money,
he remained quiet and told them not to seek any donation,
but accept only amounts that are forthcoming without asking.

Verse 52:-  The Jnani copntrolling all his senses and completely
giving up all material wants, and realizing that the all pervading
Brahman is himself, lives in perfect satisfaction and moves about
in this world.  He enjoys Bhumanda, that is all pervasiveness of
Brahman and enjoys eternal bliss.

Verse 53:-  The Jnani will not give up what has been obtained
him either good or bad.  He has no hatred and endearment.  He
is the Witness, in spite of his body, touching, smelling, tasting,
eating, hearing, walking, sleeping, dreaming, respiring, talking,
excreting , handling, eyelids batting and closing and all acts
done by the organs.  He is totally unconcerned and just enjoys
actions as a Non Entity.

Please read Atma Vidya Vilasam (43) as Atma Vidya Vilasam (13).

Verse 46:- The Jnani, wears Akasa, the Space, as his clothes,
he spreads the earth as his bed, keeps his hands as pillows,
embraces the damsel of saintlyhood and enjoys the divine
sleep of bliss happily with complete ecstacy.

Verse 47:- Vasanas, or latent tendencies of the previous birth
will haunt a normal person in the current birth. The Jnani has
no such'samskara' - 'must happenings in the present birth'.
He enjoys with his Pure Intellect, as a damsel, in the palatial
mansion of divine bliss.  He is in Brahman, like the ghee in the
butter, all pervading but without known by others.

Verse 48:- The Jnani cherishes with broadway of the renunciation
by lighting thousand lamps with his self effulgence.  Climbs
the upstairs called the Reality and enjoys the ecstasy of Liberation,
the damsel in the Brahmic state.

Verse 49:-  The Jnani devoid of pleasures, appetite, concern
for his body remains completely satisfied with illumination.
He is Sahaja Sthiti, immense Ananda, the Bliss, without any
bondage.  He is Brahma Ananda at all times.

Verse 50:-  The Brahma Jnani, with his discretion either rejects
or receives anything without intention.  As in unaffected by good
or bad that comes in its way, he never hates them.  Whatever
that has not come to him, he has no regret either.

Verse 43:-  The Jnani who has achieved the siddhi (the state)
gets the |Aparoksha Jnana, direct knowledge of Brahman within.
He will rest in Brahama pada, bereft of birth and death, and looks
at the universe as a terrifying one.  He behaves like a lunatic
smearing mud on his body and roams about in the forests all alone.
He is said to be in 'Unmani' state, the state in which he has
found the ruby in his Heart, wherefrom nectar is flowing.  He
always lives in that state, even if he moves about with people
of the world.

Verse 44:-   The self realized Jnani is a yoga siddha, that is,
he will not perceive anything with his eyes or ears and speaks
hardly any word and he is ever in Brahman and there are no
rituals for him.  He stands unaffected like a rock in a storm.

Verse 45:-  The Jnani is devoid of any caste, or clan and has
no possessions, distinction or difference .  He is a Brahma Vetta
and there is no difference between Brahman and Brahma Vetta.
He treats everyone like, even if they are learned priests, common
peasant, a cow or an elephant or a lowly dog.  He is from the
unknown source to which he has returned.   He is devoid of
time and space.  He is a kala-teeta, one who has transcended
the three times (past, present and future) and the space.

Verse 38:-  The person who has realized the Truth, always
enjoys Sat-Chit-Ananda.  The Jnani who has realized that
only truthful thought is Brahman, can go to any world, lokas,
as he pleases.  He is the King of the saint, even though he
sleeps on rocky structure and gets sound sleep.  He is ever
surrounded by cool breeze and river waters.

Verse 39:-  The Jnani transcends five sheaths, as the gross
is removed from the earth to show the inner plate.  He ever
stays in Brahman, even while food falls on his hand unasked.
He wanders in the streets of the town, as a dead log.

Verse 40:-  The Jnani looks at this entire universe, as a mistaken
snake (for a rope) and immerses himself with the rest as Brahman,
ever without doubt or fear.  He is ever in the Oneness of the
Almighty, and will not stretch his hands for begging food and
eats what comes to him, unmindful of when and how and from
whom it comes.

Verse 41:-  The Jnani is always in the Turiya state and is an
Yogroodha, one who excels in yoga. Brhama Jnani ever lives
in the state of Brahman, and so he does not have to remember
Brahman everytime.

Verse 42:-  The Jnani completely deserts all scriputural injunctions,
like one would desert a boat after crossing the river.  He has
to desert all sastras, rules of conduct, because nothing is required
after Brahma Jnana.  He is like a lamp, steadily burning in a
breezeless atmosphere.

Verse 33:-  When gold is absent, there are no gold ornaments.
When the earth is absent, there are no pots and jars. When
there is no ocean, there are no waves and foams.   So also,
in Brahma Jnani, there are not expressive objects outside.
The Jnani is alike a fattened elephant, deserted by all the
other animals in the jungle and moves about freely and climbs
the mountains at his will.

Verse 34:-  In Yoga, one is asked to concentrate on the tip
of one's nose, to arrest thoughts.  They are asked to show
'mudras' - hand posture, to the divine will.    They are further
asked to perform 'namaskaras' - prostrations, to show reverence
to gods.  The Jnani with his silence, as yoga, mudra and namaskara,
stay at the river bund, immersing in meditation and enjoys

Verse 35:-  The attachment to the worldly objects is called
'raga'.  Non attachment is 'viraga'.  In  a Jnani, his renunciation
is raga and abandonment is viraga.  He has no body consciousness,
not clad at all or clad in minimal clothes, will not speak to anyone
anything, fully devoid of thoughts and feelings, will not do any
duties excepting the minimal duties.  He takes any food that
is available to him, moves about freely and sleeps under a tree.

Verse 36:-  Keeping the mind internally absorbed in Brahman,
he remains in Peace of Jnana.  He has got unbrised feeling towards
friends and foes, and there is no harm to him, even if he lives
in deserted houses or wanders on the river banks abetting
long stretches of sand dunes or jungles.

Verse 37:-  The Jnani enjoys lying on the soft bed of soil and
enjoying the cool breeze as if fanned, ever in a peaceful state,
radiating like a full bloom moon.  He is Siva, the Purusha and
the Siddha.
