Tripura Rahasya and other ancient works / Re: Lalitha Sahasranamam
« on: October 03, 2011, 03:20:01 PM »

Dear Jyoti,

According to the DHYANA ROOPAM in Sahasra Namam, Sri Lalitha have four arms. We have no right to change it or do dhyana as per our wishes while chanting. Iswara thathwam starts with the number FOUR. Hence there will be minimum four arms for Iswaras, say, Ganapathy, Vishnu, Subramanian etc. The number TWO comes for Brahma Tatwam which is beyond Iswara Tatwam.
Dear Sreeswaroop,

I looked up tattvas and found this:
Quote
1) Siva tattva: Parashakti-Nada (Satchidananda, pure consciousness)
2) Shakti tattva: Parameshvara-Bindu(Nataraja, Personal God), energy, light and love
3) Sadashiva tattva: the power of revealment (Sadashiva)
4) Ishvara tattva: the power of concealment (Maheshvara)
5) Shuddhavidya tattva: dharma, pure knowing, the powers of
dissolution (Rudra), preservation (Vishnu) and creation (Brahma)
Is Brahma Tattva another name for Shakti Tattva?

When Sri Lalita Devi has 4 arms because she belongs to Ishvara Tattva, what does it mean when Sri Durga Devi has 8 or more arms?

Dear Jyoti,

Is there any difference?
Dear Sreeswaroop,

Yes, I think there is.
Who is I? feels more... I don't know how to describe... straightforward is not quite the right word but I have no better one.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Translation of "Nan yar?"
« on: October 03, 2011, 11:57:20 AM »
I I'm not wrong here (I don't speak any Tamil), Nan yar? means I - who?.
So would it not be better translated as Who is I? ?

Arunachala / Re: What would happen if Arunachala were destroyed?
« on: October 03, 2011, 07:22:21 AM »


Dear Jyoti,

Arunachala can never be destroyed.  The world will be destroyed
before that. It is the axis of the world.  The other axix is in Pacchu
Mountains near Peru.  Both the axes will get dissolved only after the
world is totally annihilated.



Arunachala Siva.
Dear Mr. Subramanian,

Is this the Huayna Picchu?

Is that why Krishna has 2 arms?

Unlike some other concepts of Devi, here, the form and bhava of Sri Lalitha  is  perceived as the purest one and as the embodiment of unimaginable beauty, innocence, compassion and karunyam.
Is there any form of Sri Lalita with 2 arms only?
I always like murtis better when they have 2 arms only, maybe because I'm from Europe.

Arunachala / Arunachala and mother of Bhagavan
« on: September 25, 2011, 05:36:30 AM »
When Arunachala grants moksha, why did Bhagavan have to stay with his mother while she was dying to give her moksha?

General topics / Re: Kali Yuga and Bhagavan's views on the same
« on: September 12, 2011, 06:10:37 PM »
I have a problem with the Yuga theory.

Kali Yuga is supposed to have begun when Krishna died.
That was around 3102 BCE - Bronze Age.

Before were Dvapara Yuga from 867 102 BCE to 3102 BCE and Treta Yuga from 2 163 102 BCE to 867 102 BCE - Stone Age.

But Satya Yuga would have been from 3 891 102 BCE to 2 163 102 BCE - and part of that period is pre-Stone Age.

How can that be?

Every day when I go to sleep I say to myself "Tomorrow I will start with self-enquiry" - and the next evening I do the same.
Because I have no idea how to put it into practise.
Can anybody give me a hint?

I would use a chair for sitting, I cannot sit on the flour.
So when I sit on my chair - what am I to think? "Who am I?"?
What am I to feal when I think "Who am I?"?

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Karma
« on: August 10, 2011, 08:41:01 PM »
I the grace of God bound to Karma or is it free?

Quote
Individuals have to suffer their Karmas but Iswara manages to make the best of their Karmas for his purpose. God manipulates the fruits of Karma but he does not add or take away from it.

Suppose a man is unemployed, prays to God for a job and finds one
Does this man get the job
- because of his Karma
- because of the gace of god
- because it was his Karma to get the grace of God       ?

When according to his Karma it is impossible for the man to find employment, is it not impossible for God to let the man find a job because "Ishvara does not add or take away from Karma"?
