193. It must be understood that reality is freedom from being contradicted and unreality is being
subject to extinction.  The Self alone is Real, because He never ceases to be;  the world is unreal
because it ceases to appear when there is the Awareness of the Self.

194.  The whole universe appears as a superimposition on the Real Self, the Substratum, which is
the Reality, and hence it is not like a man's horn.  But it is taught that it is not real in its own right.

195. This whole world appears divided into an endless variety of parts.  Our Holy Guru makes it clear
that all these parts also are unreal, when taken separately. 

196. It is the mind that knows the difference between the individual soul and God and other differences.
It is the nature of the mind to perceive differences. In the Mind-free state there are no differences.

197. Hence the totality of all these differences, experienced by the unwise consists only in the mind's
perception.  All the mind's perceptions have their root in the perception of the differences between
the self and the not-self.

198.  This is the persuasion 'I am this body'  which is the root cause of the tree of samsara and since
this persuasion is declared to be Ignorance, therefore all differences are the outcome of the Ignorance.

Verse 2:


மாலை பயிலும் தோரணங்கள்
   மருங்கு பயிலும் மணிமறுகு
வேலை பயிலும் புனல்பருகு
   மேகம் பயிலும் மாடங்கள்
சோலை பயிலும் குளிர்ந்தஇருள்
   சுரும்பு பயிலும் அரும்பூகம்
காலை பயிலும் வேதஒலி
   கழுநீர் பயிலும் செழுநீர்ச்செய்.


Beside the beauteous streets are festoons
Decked with dangling garlands;
Over the mansions float the clouds that have
Drunk deep from the ocean-stream;
The gardens are cool and dark with bowers;
The areca trees are buzzed over by bees;
It is the Vedas that resound there in the morn;
Its watery fields are thick with lotus-flowers.   

Arunachala Siva.

Nami Nandi Adigal Puranam:

Verse  1:


வையம் புரக்குந் தனிச்செங்கோல்
   வளவர் பொன்னித் திருநாட்டுச்
செய்ய கமலத் தடம்பணையும்
   செழுநீர்த் தடமும் புடையுடைத்தாய்ப்
பொய்தீர் வாய்மை அருமறைநூல்
   புரிந்த சீலப் புகழதனால்
எய்தும் பெருமை எண்திசையும்
   ஏறூர் ஏமப் பேறூரால்.


In the Kaveri land of the Chozhas who wield
The unique sceptre to guard the world,
Is Yema-p-peroor, rich in vast fields
Full of red-lotuses, and spacious tanks.
The glory of the righteous men that thither thrive
Ever adhering to the rare and true Vedas
Which do away with falsity,
Fills all the eight directions.   

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 38:


தருதொ ழில்திரு மறையவர்
   சாத்தமங் கையினில்
வருமு தற்பெருந் திருநீல
   நக்கர்தாள் வணங்கி
இருபி றப்புடை அந்தணர்
   ஏறுயர்த் தவர்பால்

   யார்தொழில் உரைப்பாம்.


Hailing the feet of Neelanakkar, the first
Among the Brahmins of Satthamangkai --
Celebrated for their performance of Vedic duties --,
We will now narrate the servirtorship
Of Naminandi -- a twice-born --,
Who gained conscious at-one-ment
With Him whose flag sports the Bull.   

(Tiru Neelanakkar Puranam completed.)

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 37:



பெருகு காதலில் பின்நெடு
   நாள்முறை பிறங்க
வருபெ ருந்தவ மறையவர்
   வாழிசீ காழி
ஒருவர் தந்திருக் கல்லியா
   ணத்தினில் உடனே
திரும ணத்திறஞ் சேவித்து
   நம்பர்தாள் சேர்ந்தார்.


Thus flourished the Brahmin of great tapas
In ever-Increasing love, for many days;
As he was present at the holy wedding
Of the peerless one of ever-prosperous Sirkazhi
And as he hailed it, he reached Siva?s feet

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  36:

சண்பை யாளியார் தாமெழுந்
   தருளும்எப் பதியும்
நண்பு மேம்பட நாளிடைச்
   செலவிட்டு நண்ணி
வண்பெ ரும்புக ழவருடன்
   பயின்றுவந் துறைந்தார்
திண்பெ ருந்தொண்ட ராகிய
   திருநீல நக்கர்.




To spend many days in growing friendship
He went to every shrine visited
By the lion of Sanbai; Tiruneelanakkar,
The mighty servitor, would sojourn
With the munificent and glorious child
And then repair to his town.   

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  35:


மேவு நாளில்அவ் வேதியர்
   முன்புபோல் விரும்புந்
தாவில் பூசனை முதற்செய்கை
   தலைத்தலை சிறப்பச்
சேவின் மேலவர் மைந்தராந்
   திருமறைச் சிறுவர்
பூவ டித்தலம் பொருந்திய
   உணர்வொடும் பயின்றார்.

The Brahmin lived performing flawless pooja
As before and as by the Vedas ordained, in great splendor;
He cultivated an ardent love for the feet
Of the Brahmin-child, the master of the sacred Vedas
And the son of Him whose mount is the Bull.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 34:


பிள்ளை யார்எழுந் தருளஅத்
   தொண்டர்தாம் பின்பு
தள்ளும் அன்புடன் கேண்மையும்
   தவிர்ப்பில எனினும்
வள்ள லார்திரு வருளினை
   வலியமாட் டாமை
உள்ளம் அங்குடன் போக்கிமீண்
   டொருவகை இருந்தார்.


When the Child ruled by God departed,
Though the servitor was impelled by love and friendship
To follow him, he would not transgress
The mandate of the divine patron.
He returned, plying his heart after him,
And somehow managed to abide in his place.   

Arunachala Siva.

பதிக நாண்மலர் கொண்டுதம்
   பிரான்கழல் பரவி

எதிர்தொ ழும்பதி களில்எழுந்
   தருளினார் என்றும்
புதிய செந்தமிழ்ப் பழமறை
   மொழிந்தபூ சுரனார்.

Decking the Lord with his fresh garlands of divine decades
He made his adoration;
He endowed Neelanakkar with his great friendship;
The divine child that sang the hoary Vedas
In ever-fresh Tamizh, then fared forth to other shrines.   

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  32:


கங்கு லிற்பள்ளி கொண்டபின்

   அயவந்தி அமர்ந்த
திங்கள் சூடியை நீலநக்

   கத்தொடை புனைந்தார்.



The Lord of Kauniyas after his stay there at night
Fared forth to hymn the praise of the Lord of Ayavanti
Upon whose crest rests the crescent;
He praised Neelanakkar in his divine decade
Surcharged with nectarean words of dulcet Tamizh.   

Arunachala Siva.

In the "Vetikai" where fire was for ever burning,
The red flame began to spiral up and twirl right,
Glowing more resplendent than ever in various ways.
Witnessing this, the wearer if the sacred thread
Felt immensely happy.
The Lord of Sakota-Yazh with his wife beside him
Slumbered in peace by the grace of the Lord.   

Arunachala Siva.

Sampurnamma:

Bhagavan Ramana's humor is itself quite harmless. His children were also making jokes like Him,
without harming anyone and at the same time revealing highest Truth.

Once one kitchen server, I think it is Sampurnamma, served Bhagavan Ramana with more of rice.
Bhagavan Ramana told her:  It is quite a large quantity.  Sampurnamma said:  "What is
large?  What is small?  It is all in the mind!"

Bhagavan laughed heartily and said:  "O, You are telling my teachings to me!"

Arunachala Siva,

Suri Nagamma:

Suri Nagamma's life is one great wonder.  Even for writing Letters from Sri Ramanasramam, she
had some opposition.  Sarvadhikari did not want her to write anything, after some time.
Bhagavan Ramana kept as usual mum.  But later Sarvadhikari  relented and today we have got 2
volumes of her letters which are simple (and not pedantic like those of Munagala and others)
but very revealing in regard to Bhagavan Ramana's teachings.

Devaraja Mudaliar used to make fun of Suri Nagamma calling her as Telugu Secretary of Bhagavan. 
Bhagavan Ramana used to refer any matters regarding Telugu poetry to her.  Like that, Muruganar
was His Tamizh Secretary, Kavyakanta was His Sanskrit Secretary and Devaraja Mudaliar himeself
was His English Secretary!

Arunachala Siva.

The two barbers:


Both Subbarayan and Natesan were great devotees of Bhagavan Ramana and they did their
work every full moon day. Once when Subbarayan had been quite old, he missed one or two
hairs on Bhagavan's head while tonsuring.  Sarvadhikari said:  You are not having good eye
sight. Why not you find someone else? Bhagavan Ramana said:  What if?  Even if one or two
hairs have been missed while shaving, it does not matter to me.  Why are you chiding him?

After this incident, I think, Subbarayan deputized his nephew for the work.

Arunachala Siva.

Today is the Liberation Day of Tiru Jnana Samandhar. He got married to a girl in Tiru Nallur.
After the wedding,  he wanted with his wife to go to the Siva Temple for prayer. The cooks, the drummers,
the pipers and the Siva devotees who had come to the wedding, Tiru Neela Kanta Yazhpanar, Tiru Neela
Nakka Naayanar and Muruga Nayanar followed suit.  They entered the temple and after prayer, all
merged as Light with Siva.

It happened on Vaikasi Moolam Day.


The temple is thereafter called Tiru Nallur Perumanam.

Arunachala Siva.
