My Guru (continues)

16. At first He appeared separate from me as my mother and father, as the God who bestows grace and eventually as the utterly impartial teacher of true Jnana.  Enabling me to experience bliss, He has now become one with me, as my own non dual Self-nature, that which is entitled to one's love, which confers only goodness.

17.  My God Ramana reigned over me, shining clearly within me as the Self, the formless truth of consciousness, and externally as the Guru who bestows grace-consciousness. As I am firmly established in His feet, there is no delusion for me.

18.  He is the Brahmin (Brahman knower), the embodiment of immaculate grace that is the intrinsic nature of the transcendental Swarupa.  As a consequence of Him abiding in my heart without ever leaving it, the sense of 'I' and 'mine' that are the ego delusion, has been destroyed. In  His state of being the Guru, none can equal or better Him.

19. It is not possible for me to describe even slightly the greatness of the Guru who totally destroyed my mental bewilderment. If I attempt to have thoughts, my mind will ecstatically glorify His nature in the abode of Mauna, that which is the source of the thought that attempted to praise Him.

20.  Because Sivam, ever untouched by name and form, itself took me as its target by becoming the form of the Guru, I have flourishing in my heart a life of resting in the divine feet of silence, that state of distinction in which there is nothing to dwell upon.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:

கொந்தணவும் பொழில்புடைசூழ் கொச்சைமேவு குலவேந்தன்
செந்தமிழின் சம்பந்தன் சிறைவண்புனல்சூழ் திருநல்லூர்ப்
பந்தணவு மெல்விரலாள் பங்கன்றன்னைப் பயில்பாடல்
சிந்தனையா லுரைசெய்வார் சிவலோகஞ்சேர்ந் திருப்பாரே.

Sambandhan, an authority on chaste Tamizh, and the great chief in Kochai surrounded on all sides by gardens where there are bunches of flowers. Those who recite with meditation the verses on Siva, who has a lady who holds in her fingers a ball, as his half, in Tiru Nallūr surrounded by plenty of water which has dams on it, will stay permanently in the world of Siva.

Padigam on Tiru Nallur completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:


பொல்லாத சமணரொடு புறங்கூறுஞ் சாக்கியரொன்
றல்லாதா ரறவுரைவிட் டடியார்கள் போற்றோவா
நல்லார்க ளந்தணர்கள் நாளுமேத்துந் திருநல்லூர்
மல்லார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

You felt happy in dwelling in the most elegant temple in Tiru Nallūr when the good-natured Brahmins praise you everyday and other devotees who have turned a deaf ear to the religious instructions of the Buddhists, who always slander together with the wicked Jains who are not worthy of regard, praise you without ceasing.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 9:


போதின்மே லயன்றிருமால் போற்றியும்மைக் காணாது
நாதனே யிவனென்று நயந்தேத்த மகிழ்ந்தளித்தீர்
தீதிலா அந்தணர்கள் தீமூன்றோம்புந் திருநல்லூர்
மாதரா ளவளோடு மன்னுகோயில் மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

You granted your grace with joy when Brahma who is on a lotus flower, and Vishnu, could not see you and praised with piety `He is the master!` You felt happy in staying permanently in the temple along with the lady, at Tiru Nallūr where the Brahmins who do not commit sinful acts maintain the three fires. [The three fires are spoken in Puṟam also].

Arunachala Siva.

ஊன்றோயும் வெண்மழுவு மனலுமேந்தி யுமைகாண

Chapter 34:

1. Ribhu: Listen to the knowledge of Brahman, the wondrous, the most hard to attain, a single hearing of which is enough to bestow the supreme liberation.

2. Truly, truly, the world does not exist and so not do thought, understanding and the like.  The knowledge of Brahman alone is by itself, ever, eternally brimming with bliss;

3. blissful, inexhaustible, peaceful, uniform and painless. The world of mind does not exist. Neither is there activity in reality.

4.  The concept of the world is non existent, nor is there any form in the least to be seen.  Thought and its activity are of the form of unreality.  The world is verily naught.

5. All is thus indeed unreal. Unreal also are the time and Isvara.  The world is a concept, likened to the fear of a son of a barren woman.

6.  The world appears in front of me like the peak of a castle built in air. The world would exist if one could quench one's thirst from a mirage.

7. This world is like the instance in which a man is killed by the peak of a hill and not an arrow.  If the imaginary castle is true, so would be the world always true.

8.  Like the blue color of the sky reflecting in the ocean the world seems to become real. The world is indeed true, if the silver in the pearl oyster could become a real ornament.

9. The recurrent world becomes evident just like the man dying from fear of a rope,
mistaking it to be a serpent, or even as an arrow of flowers quench a raging fire.

10.  The world exists if cooking were possible using the green trunk of banana plant as fuel.  The eternally blissful Brahman is ever by itself alone.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

My Guru:

10. I remained befuddled, imagining I had compulsory duties to perform. My Guru then freed me completely from this sense of obligation through the experience of firm Jnana,
the state of oneness that is free from the bewilderment of the ego which brings into being the idea of mandatory duties. He transformed me into the supreme which, by its very nature, soars as the empyrean of grace.

11. My Guru who lives for ever, abiding gloriously in the heart as consciousness, devoid of overpowering sleep, gently smiled within Himself, thinking of my foolish ignorance that makes me sing the waking up song for Him.  (Refer to the Tiruvachakam song of Tirup Palli Ezhucchi.)

12.  My Guru shines as the embodiment of Mauna, the infinite expanse of grace.  To make me see myself as Himself in the time it takes to blink an eye, He demonstrated clearly in my heart, in the form of the pure expanse, the Jnana Swarupa that exists as the treasure trove of Grace.

13. My Guru who possesses the virtue of generosity effectively exercised His dominion
over me by bestowing on me the blessed state of living in perpetual bliss.  I now live as an inebriated, lazy man, my mind swelling with bliss, just like a bee that has drunk the honey of grace at His feet, I merely eat and play, with absolutely no anxieties in my heart.

14. How wonderful it is that the very mind which was accustomed to moving in the way of bondage has now been made to shine with liberation as its own nature. What
other evidence is needed that Ramana, the king of Gurus, is a magician?

15. Guru Ramana, the Lord, wells up and surges as the rapturous supreme bliss in the hearts of those true devotees in whom love abounds.  He, the supreme reality who sustains this world, remaining as its unmoving prop, will not allow those who have placed their trust in Him, to suffer and wither away.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

The Guru:

1.  Only the Self, the real Lord who exists and shines in the heart as 'I,I', is the Guru.

2.  The appropriate Guru for you is the one whom you feel your mind has been effortlessly and totally captivated by.  He is indeed the Jnana Guru who bestows being
consciousness and who shines as the form of God himself in this world.

3.  Only when the devotee is fully mature does the Lord Parameswara, through his grace, bestow true Jnana in abundance. The Guru, on the other hand, brings the devotee's mind to complete maturity through his power, and then bestows true Jnana
by charging it with Sakti Pada. (Sakti Pada is both the power and process by which the Guru liberates the devotee.). 

4.  Only those Gurus who, like the sun, radiate penetrating rays of grace are Jnana Gurus. Lord Siva manifested as Guru Ramana. He is consciousness the supreme, who with His glance puts an end to the delusion of fear inducing concepts.

5. Lord Arunachaleswara, who stands as the grace bestowing supreme, assumed the form of the Brahman knowing Guru.  His only wish is to transform the life of devotees
into a life of nothing but bliss that possesses the surging light of Jnana devoid of ignorance.

6. The Jiva has taken on the form of the body, forgetting its real nature,  the Self, which is the light of consciousness, the limitless sky-like expanse. The preeminent
function of the Sad Guru who is the Self. one's true nature, is to clearly convince the Jiva of its real nature by dispelling the delusion of 'I' and 'mine' in the body, the possessions, and so on.

7.  The peerless light of true Jnana will well up and surge forth in a heart that has taken as its exclusive target the grace of the Guru. In the Self experience in which nothing but consciousness exists, the fear inducing mental anxieties that cause distress will leave for good, and the bliss associated with an intense serenity of mind will arise, filling up the heart.

8. The trustworthy Guru Ramana, the fire of Jnana, possesses a perfect and ripe wisdom that is full of light of Mauna. He steals as His tribute only the ego mind, the delusion, which is the 'I am this body of flesh' stain.

9.  Other than the grace bestowing Guru, who is both father and mother, who else on this earth exists as the close and permanent relative who is capable of bestowing the eminent being consciousness that confers true benefit on the Jiva, not only in this birth, but in all births?
