A verse from Mountain Path, January-March 2017:

Breathless: 

Ana Ramana:

The sense of me seems to rise
on each hill of breath.
The space between each inhale and out   
is pure peace.
Thoughts follow like blindfolded birds
once there is breathing.
They flitter and frolic wildly until feelings
arise, vast histories,
images of past and future,
but their wings are tied.
They can go nowhere
but down into the abyss if small i.
With practice, in time,
the breath slows to a whisper
and pure presence thrives
in radiance of joy, and the sweet peach
of silence.
Some call it I-I
but it feels nameless, timeless,
me a mere phantom
as the heart soars and glides in vast galaxies
silent yet singing - of Truth, of no one,
of pure, supreme Being.

***

Arunachala Siva,.

Today is the Liberation Day of Munagala Venkataramaiah.  He attained Bhagavan's
feet today.  I have written already about Munagala, who is the author of Talks.

Arunachala Siva.

21. Devoid of all bodies am I.   Bereft of all actions, am I.  I am the peaceful Self of all
mantras, beyond all the inner faculties.   

22.  I am devoid of all invocations.  I am the illuminator of all the gods. I am the Self devoid of all ablutions.  I am the one, the foremost and without a second.

23.  In the sacred center of the Self, in the sacred waters of the Self, in the mind overcome by the bliss of the Self, realizing that I am the Self alone, I repose and revel
in the Self.

24. The Self alone is the enjoyment for the Self, the contented Self, the happy Self.
The Self alone is the Self of the Self.  The Self alone am I, the supreme.

25.  I am the Self, I am the Self that I am.  I am the Self not of the world.  I am the Self of all. I am the perpetual Self. I am the eternal Self different from qualities. 

26.  Meditate thus regularly.  Meditate always thus for accomplishment. The goal is ever attained as simply awareness.  That is just certitude.  Even that certainty shall subside. Be happy by yourself.

27.  O Lord!  The innumerable Vedas with their diverse branches proclaim you alone,
the only one, variously as Vishnu, Indra, Brahma, Yama the god of Death, Agni the fire god, Vayu the god of air, the Lord of beings and the Lord of the hosts.

Thus conclude chapter 28 entitle 'The topic of the Self being without characteristics', in the sixth amsa called Sankara of Sri Rahasyam.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:


வயஞா னம்வல்லார் மருகற் பெருமான்

இயன்ஞா னசம்பந் தனபா டல்வல்லார்
வியன்ஞா லமெல்லாம் விளங்கும் புகழே.

Verse  2:


படியில் நீடும் பத்திமுதல்
    அன்பு நீரில் பணைத்தோங்கி
வடிவு நம்பி யாரூரர்
    செம்பொன் மேனி வனப்பாகக்
கடிய வெய்ய இருவினையின்
    களைகட் டெழுந்து கதிர்பரப்பி
முடிவி லாத சிவபோகம்
    முதிர்ந்து முறுகி விளைந்ததால்.   

In this world, enduring love and devotion and the like
Reared by the water of grace, grew aloft in their strength;
Their form was splendorous like that of Nampi Aaroorar--
All roseate and golden; the cruel and violent tares
Of the twofold Karma were weeded out; they rose in resplendence;
The mellowing grains yielded
Abundant and aeviternal Siva Bhoga.

Arunachala Siva.
