Arunachala / Re: Arunachala and mother of Bhagavan
« on: October 08, 2011, 10:30:26 PM »



Dear Jyoti

One should stay in Arunachala or within thee yojanas [thirty kms] through out his life. Not only that. He should lead a spiritual
life. [this is not of course, mentioned in the poem]. And such a living with spiritual leanings shall confer moksha without deeksha
i.e without getting into sannyasa dharma, without  getting the touch of the Guru and also Diskha  name. But at the same time,
the unspoken element of spiritual pursuits must be there, to the extent of nullifying all vasanas.  This is the minimum qualification. The rest is taken care, by Arunachala.

Pazhani Swami had spiritual pursuits but still there were some hidden vasanas. So even Guru's touch could not do the required conferring of moksha.

One gentleman in the Asramam gave me an example to drive home this point. The puranas say that circumambulating a particular
tree, so many times per day, shall give the girl a baby. But if the girl is unmarried, and if she goes round and round the tree,
will she get a child? The qualification is that she must be married and should live with her husband and she must be childless and
she must yearn for a child. Then she can go round the tree to get the benefit.



Arunachala Siva.
       

         
So in order to obtain the grace of Lord Arunachala, certain requirements need to be fulfilled.
That is most disapointing, I thought the grace of Lord Arunachala were unconditional.

Dear Jyoti.

That person was not a monk but one Pazhani Swami who was doing all service to Sri Bhagavan in the early years. His guru
bhakti was tremendous. Sri Bhagavan wanted to confer moksha for him. So when he suffered from some terminal illness,
Sri Bhagavan sat near him and placed His hands on the head and chest. At the final moment, Sri Bhagavan thought that his
breath has gone to dwell in the Heart,  He took away His hands. But Pazhani Swami's vasanas were still there, and so he opened
his eyes for a second and the breath flew away through the eyes. Sri Bhagavan understood His mistake of taking  away His hands
a little early, and at the same time the vasanas of Pazhani Swami did not quell in full.  Even a single vasana will give a fresh birth.
That is why his prana flew away through the eyes.  Sri Bhagavan took special care in Mother's case and did not leave His hands till
her vasanas did completely die in the Heart and the prana also withdrew into the Heart. So she could attain moksha.

So in spite of a Guru's help, when vasanas are still there, as the destiny would have it, prana will fly away in the last moment
through any one of the orifices like nose, eyes, mouth, and ears. Guru's help will be 100% successful, only when vasanas are
totally dead.



Arunachala Siva.       
But Pazhani Swami lived near Arunachala, so why did he not get moksha vasanas or not?
It is said that whoever lives near Arunachala gets moksha.
When only getting rid of the last vasana liberates one, what is the significance of Arunachala?

Dear jyoti,

Arunachala = Sri Bhagavan.


But there was also a monk whom Bhagavan tried to give moksha but failed because he took his hand from his chest too early.
So when Bhagavan is Arunachala & Arunachala is Bhagavan - how could this happen?

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?

Dear Sreeswaroop,

I ment the Krishna I know from so many pictures, the cowherd with a flute.

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.

I know that Swami (Papa) Ramdas visited Bhagavan one.
Has Bhagavan ever met Anandamayi Ma?
I know she visited South India with some of her devotees.

Arunachala / Arunachala and mother of Bhagavan

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?"?
