Dear Sankar, Once you confirm your trip, please tell me two days
before the travel and I can give you certain finer tips to observe
in Tiruvannamalai.

Dear DRPVSSN RAJU,  Your post on sankalpa and vikalpa are
quite useful for all the member of the Forum.  Again I am going
back to Who am I?  Bhagavan said:  "After preventing all thoughts
(which are volition and doubt), keep one thought:  Who amI?".
It is like the stick that is used to stir the funeral pyre.  After the
corpse is fully burnt, that stick is also thrown to the fire and gets
burnt finally.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai,  Regonition of Awareness in other great
scholars is itself a step towards recognition of the Awareness,
the Self within. The only caution is " Beware of dupes".

Dear DRPVSSN Raju, You are correct.  The Self awareness and
thoughts do not co exist.  Because they are like the rope and the
serpent.  When one sees the serpent, the rope is not seen and
vice versa.

Dear non duel,  Thanks for your information on V. Ganesan's
book BE THE SELF.  I did not remember to mention it.  It is
a small but excellent book on Bhagavan.  There is one more
book called THE MOMENTS REMEMBERED, about the nicest
moments of some devotees with Bhagavan.

Dear srkudai,  All those people are living in Tiruvannamalai,
either inside the Ashram or outside in the town.  You can
write to them c/o Sri Ramanasramam, Tiruvannamalai - 606 603.
They will reply if they feel like.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai,  Sukhabodhananda, has written so many books
in Tamil and English on mind control, without his mind having
been controlled!  You have to pay to listen to his address! Sri
Sri Ravishankar has founded the Art of Living Course, with
the aim of teaching correct living.  He has not mentioned
anything about self enquiry.  It is he who has now gone to
Kashmir to solve Hindu-Muslim unrest on account of Amarnath
Shrine land allotment.   Dayananda Saraswati is an exponent
of Bhagavad Gita, like his guru Chinmayananda, who in the
past had said that Bhagavad Gita tells everything and Nirad Chaudhry
blasted him saying that Bhagavad Gita is not telling everything.  See
Nirad Babu's book on Hinduism.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, you are right.  Bhakti - devotion
leads to Atma Bhakti or Self -Surrender, and it
culminates in enquriy and self realization.  Bhagavan
used to say:  Bhakti is Jnana Matha.  Devotion is the
mother of Wisdom.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, all the aids are useful and they
have become plenty nowadays.  But there are several
precautions to be taken.  a) Firstly these are quick
fixes but there is no quickfix for self realization. b)
Many of them are bogus, like small paperbacks that
are there to teach the art of management.  c) All
these books or atleast most of them are written by
people who are not self realized and it is like a blind
leading a blind.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Dive deeply...
« on: August 14, 2008, 10:45:45 AM »
Dear DRPSSVN Raju,  Diving deeply is taking the "I thought"
to the Heart, the Self.  Diving is pushing inward.

Dear Kannan05, There is no freedom no bondage, no
independence, no dependence, if one could shed
all thoughts that bind people.

Dear Sankar, Remaining in Spirituality is just Being.

Dear nonduel,  I am happy to read your posts.  The forced
silence, I had, was to read some books like GVK and Padamalai.
I did not say that Michael contradicted Bhagavan.  I only
said that he was rephrasing and paraphrasing Bhagavan's
teachings, which have been done many others.  Who can
add or deduct anything from what Bhagavan Ramana had
said.  Incidentally, are you still eager to have a living Guru?
The living Gurus are going to Kashmir to solve problems!
But Bhagavan did not move out of Tiruvannamalai, because
He was solving problems with His Heart.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, this is what Bhagavan has said in
Who am I?  When He said, think "I-I-I", it is not
mechanical repetition, but a 'bhavana' or conviction
or an attitude.  It is not mouthing of the word but
the deeper meditative contemplation.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, Thoughts are the hindrance that
gives rise to objective universe, the personal gods and
I am the body feeling.
