45. I am liberated from 'is not' and 'is'.  I am without negative sound 'na'.  I am of the form of all
consciousness.  I am Existence Consciousness Bliss.

46. I am of the form that is.  I am myself. I am of the form of universal mind.  I am without universe.

47.  I am of the form of all kinds.  I am not devoid of the nature of existence.  I am without the triad
of time.  I am without lust and such qualities.

48.  I am bereft of body and its possessor. I revel as one without qualities. I have no liberation.
I am liberated.  I am ever without liberation (to be yet achieved).

49.  I am without reality and unreality.  I am ever the real alone.  I am without any place to go.
I am without movement and such.

50.  I am ever of the nature of remembrance.  I am peaceful.  I am amiable.  Thus, my own experience
has been described. This chapter is great indeed.  Whoever hears this even once becomes oneself
Brahman.

51.  I propitiate the Lord who has arisen to exterminate, the world born out of the mundane egg with
his glorious arms rivaling the elephantine trunk;  who is holding the skull of Brahma; who has the
Mount Meru, the bearer of the worlds, for bow and the eagle mounted Maha Vishnu for arrow.

52.  Those with stainless minds realize Thee as their Being by worshipping Thee O Lord, -- who art
the consort of Goddess Girija, who art of the form of transcendental light, who art beyond form
and of the form of the cosmos.

The chapter 7 is concluded.  It is a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha entitled 'Description of
one's Self'.

495.  When, by taking hold of the consciousness-element of the soul, the Quest is made of the Self,
the root of that soul, that Self, who is free from all defects shines alone;  there the soul does not survive.

496.  Hence this Quest is named the Great Yoga, there is no other Yoga, equal to this, or greater.
All the Yogas are included in, and may be used to auxiliaries  to this one, as may be found suitable.

497.  This Yoga, the Quest of the source of the soul, is itself all the Yogas; it is the yoga of Action,
the Yoga of Devotion, the Yoga of Restraining the mind and also the Yoga of Right Awareness.

498.  Since the Quest has the form of a Question, it is not to be practiced as a mode of meditation.
By this question, the mind dives into the Heart, which it does not do by any series of meditations.

499.  Some practice continuous meditation on the Truth of one's own self, after listening to and than
the Quest of the Self taught by Bhagavan Sri Ramana.

500.  In the Chhandogya Upanishad the identity of the Supreme Being and the Real Self is taught
by the sentence, 'Thou art That'.  This identity is confirmed by distinguishing between the literal
and the intended meanings of the terms used.

501.  Sri Ramana says that, 'without an inquiry as the intended meaning of the term 'That',  in the
sentence, one should make a Quest of the Truth of the Real Self, who is indicated by the term 'Thou'.

502.  By this Quest the Aspirant obtains the Direct Experience of the Real Self in the Transcendental
State (beyond the three states of the Ignorance). For him that has thus succeeded in this Quest,
there is no need for the continuous Meditation nor the prolonged Reflection (mentioned before).

Verse 416:


மருங்குளநற் பதிகள்பல
    பணிந்துமா நதிக்கரைபோய்க்
குரங்காடு துறையணைந்து
    குழகனார் குரைகழல்கள்
பெருங்காத லால்பணிந்து
    பேணியஇன் னிசைபெருக
அருங்கலைநூல் திருப்பதிகம்
    அருள்செய்து பரவினார்.


From there he visited the many nearby shrines
And adored thither; he marched on the bank
Of the Kaveri, reached Kurangkaaduthurai,
Adored the ankleted feet of the beauteous Lord
In great love and hymned a divine decade of music
Packed with the wisdom of the rare scriptures.


Arunachala Siva.

Hailing the Lord, he sang a decade in splendorous Tamizh;
He sojourned there and hymned many more divine decades;
He adored every day the feet of the Lord who wears
On His matted hair the white crescent and the serpent;
In abounding love he worshipped the Lord
With the divinely puissant devotees and abode there.

Verse 414:


அடியவர்கள் எதிர்கொள்ள
    எழுந்தருளி அங்கணைந்து

He entered into the temple welcomed by its servitors,
Adored the shrine of the Lord, the Ens that is
Supreme and Infinite, completed the sacred round,
Came before the Lord, prostrated on the floor
Many a time and rose up with tear-filled eyes.

He sang the lofty and divine decade that began thus;
"The skull indeed is His
(begging) bowl?"
Great joy, rare to be borne, welled up in him;
He then sang a sweet and fitting decade in which
He asked thus: "Is this, Idaimaruthoor, the shrine
Of the Lord who rules me?" Then he moved in.

Verse 412:


மாநாகம் அருச்சித்த
    மலர்க்கமலத் தாள்வணங்கி
நாணாளும் பரவுவார்
    பிணிதீர்க்கும் நலம்போற்றிப்
பானாறும் மணிவாயர்
    பரமர்திரு விடைமருதில்
பூநாறும் புனற்பொன்னித்
    தடங்கரைபோய்ப் புகுகின்றார்.




He adored the feet of the Lord hailed
By Aadi Sesha, the divine serpent, in his Pooja;
The godly child praised His glory of doing away
With the ills of those who adore Him daily; then
He whose beauteous lips are ever-fragrant
With the Milk , proceeded on the vast bank of the Kaveri
From whose water wafted the scent of flowers,
And came to the Supreme One's Tiruvidaimaruthoor.

The great Tiru Jnaanasambandhar adored
The Lord of Tirunaakeccharam who is verily
A peerless Mountain of ruddy gold,
The brow-eyed Lord who wears the hide
Of the dark tusker, and hailed Him
In a divine decade of splendorous Tamizh,
Rich in rare wisdom.

He hymned in a tuneful and divine decade
The Lord who is the very pupil of the eye,
The nectar of Kudanthaikkaaronam,
The Lord who burnt the triple hostile cities
And who is the inner meaning of the four Vedas.
He visited the other shrines too,
With innumerable devotees and moved onward.

பூமருவும் கங்கைமுதல்

தூமருவு மலர்க்கையால்

He adored with his flower-hands the temple where
During Mahamakam all the great and holy rivers
Right from the flower-laden Ganga, thither arrive
For their purificatory bath; he circumambulated
The shrine and bowed at the feet of the Lord
Who oped His third eye and caused Kaama to perish;
His eyes feasted on the Lord?s feet.   

Arunachala Siva.

He reached the shrine and adored the Celestial One
In the holy Keezhkkottam in heart-felt joy;
Then with the devotees he moved out; holy Brahmins
Encircled him and chanted his praise;
With them all, he reached Tirukkaaronam
Girt with gardens of sweet-smelling flowers.

திருஞான சம்பந்தர்

உருகாநின் றுளமகிழக்

Tiru Jnaanasambandhar, as he neared Tirukkudamookku
In melting love and joy that welled up from within,
Hailed the Lord in harmonious and musical numbers thus:
"Our Lord is He who is happily enthroned in Kudamookku."

In the ancient days, a formal Brahma Jnana Guru was considered essential.  Rama chose
Vasishta to obtain this Brahma Jnana.  In case of Arjuna, the BG was said primarily to
do away with anatma jnana and to enable him to go all out for war since all bodies perish
one day.  Arjuna himself forgot this teaching later and one evening, he asks Krishna to tell
all that once again.  Krishna smiled and said, You did not forget it. It is within your Heart.
And it will come back to your help at the appropriate time.  Krishna left the world and Arjuna
became nervous and helpless.  At that time, he remembered Krishna's words.  In BG, it is said,
that one should go to a self realized Jnani to obtain Brahma Jnana.  I also do not know the
exact verse.  I shall post it soon.  The story of Arjuna asking for Brahma Jnana, years later than
war comes in Mukti Skanda the last chapter of Srimad Bhagavatam.

No books can give us self knowledge as a Jnana Guru's silent gazing does. 

This incidentally gives some answers on Sakshu Diksha. 

Many saint poets used to address Siva as Eye.  It is nothing but
seeking Siva's gaze.  Muruganar has sung a decad titled Tiru KaN
Nokkam, in Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai, describing Bhagavan's
powerful eyes.  The eyes of the Guru looks at your eyes and then
enters the mind to cleanse it up.  The gaze is a long cleaning duster,
like we use in our homes, but more powerful and potent.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10.10:



பாட வேண்டும்நான் போற்றி நின்னையே
    பாடி நைந்துநைந் துருகி நெக்குநெக்
காட வேண்டும்நான் போற்றி அம்பலத்
    தாடு நின்கழற் போது நாயினேன்
கூட வேண்டும்நான் போற்றி இப்புழுக்
    கூடு நீக்கெனைப் போற்றி பொய்யெலாம்
வீடவேண்டும்நான் போற்றி வீடுதந்
    தருளு போற்றிநின் மெய்யர் மெய்யனே.


Sing I should; praise be ! Singing of You and getting softened and more softened,
I should melt and melt and dance ecstatically;
praise be !
I, the cur, should join Your flower-feet when,
In the Ambalam, they dance; praise be ! Deign to do away with this,
my worm-ridden body, Praise be ! I must give up totally all falsehood;
Praise be ! O True One unto Your true ones Be pleased to grant me deliverance !
