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.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, I saw your excellent piece.  Only one
addition.  The spiritual heart is all pervsaive and is everywhere.
It is called the Self, Brahman or Atma.  The Heart Centre,
for enquiry lies on the right side of the chest and is different
from the blood pumping organ.  By enquiring into the Heart
Centre, one merges with the Heart.

Arunachala Siva.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: False "I"

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, the false I is the ego.  When the
ego is destroyed, the real I,  Bhagavan calls it 'Thaan'
in Tamil and is translated as "I-I" shines forth.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: What is self-enquiry
« on: August 13, 2008, 07:47:38 PM »
All thoughts are mental manifestations and are obstacles.
When thoughts are killed as they come out of the fortress,
at the end, there will not be anyone inside the fortress and
it will be ours.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, mental activity is necessary for the
practioners, the bhaktas who do the self enquiry.  The
mental activity is :  I am Brahman, bhavana or attitude.  Staying
in Brahman is after the self is realized.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear non duel,  I am happy with your post.  The Heart
and the Heart Centre are much talked about topics,
in David Godman's blog.  The Heart Centre is a location
for the 'sadhakas', the practisers and is localized on
the right side of the chest.  Heart is all pervasive.  Bhagavan
has said this in Ramana Gita (Hrudaya Guhara Madhye...)
and also in Ulladu Narpadu Anubandam.  I told David
that I need a Heart Centre and for that matter, all the
'sadhakas'.  Once one knows Heart, he will not be
interested in the Heart Centre.  Will the sugar
keep a sugar candy in its pocket?

Arunachala Siva.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Prior to.....

Dear jimrich, Prior to thoughts, there is Awareness.  But
prior to Awareness, there is nothing, since It is the First
Cause, the Causeless Cause.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju,  The magazines talk about  Jaggi
Vasudev, Nityananda Swami, Sri Sri Ravishankar and
others.  You can follow any of them.  But you are treading
in the unchartered waters.  Bhagavan is an ocean who
has been already treaded by many others, and who have
now become the ocean.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai,  Vaishnavaites do not have a separate concept
of Ganesa.  They have got a deity called Thumbikkai Azhwar,
who is the foremost devotee of Narayana, a devotee with
a trunk like elephant!  Do not laugh.  In Srirangam, Tamil
Nadu, you can see a sculpture of him!

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai,  Dr. Venkatasubramanian, is not me.  I am a
little worm in the vast ocean of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi.
All those people whom I mentioned in the post are realized
persons.  But you can verify only if you can.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai, there is a beautiful translation in English,
published by Sri Ramakrishna Math.  There is also
a Tamil translation by Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai.

Dear srkudai, if Krishna is different from Ganesa, Siva,
Uma and Skanda, then Krishna is not One without a
second.  If there is more than one, why not someone
else going for the second or third or fourth?  This is
where Philosophy was interpreted as religion and
then the whole lot of trouble started.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPVSSN Raju, you are correct.  Banishing all other
thoughts that take us outside is the most difficult thing
in life.

Arunachala Siva.
