Dear Kskat

Happy that you had a refreshing trip to Thiruvanamalai .
Is the  "Ozhivil Odukkam " book by Muguvai Kannan Murugan Adimai ? How much is it priced?

Om Peace

Dear Sir,

In all hurry,  unfortunately I dont know answer to both the  questions,  obviously your obvious questions from someone who has bought a book

I will check.

This Ozhivil Odukkam term came in some Bhagavan book i think Living by words --  David Godman.  Bhagavan advised this book to Annamalai Swami I believe.

This book has so much power --  something I am getting intuitively --  all one's vasanas gets destroyed in a varying degree by reading the verses alone without analyzig too much.

Need to read that book.

I will get details tomorrow on book author and prize

Subramanian Sir -- please throw more light on various authors if they exist on this book.

Dear Kskat

I need the details as a friend of mine is going to Thiruvanamlai next week and I wanted to get the book from me from Sri Ramana Ashram and hence wanted to know the concered author's books is available and its price so that I can give that money to my friend .
No hurry would be happy to get the news by tomorrow .
By the way are the Ashram Diaries available for sale ?

Om Peace

Very correct. As long as names and forms are there for me, I need name and form to feel attached to. I can deceive myself saying I am not this and that - but the reality is different. Hence, I have Bhagawan's picture right on my table, on my laptop etc. Else I would not have. I dont want to deceive myself saying it is all Maya unless it naturally comes to me. If I deceive myself - I wont progress.

Very well said !

You can also have this youtube video darshan/pradakshina around Bhagwan Samadhi and watch it when ever you feel like to be in touch with Bhagwan .I have posted it also separately in another thread

Pradakshina Around Bhagavan Ramana's Samadhi

A devotee has contributed this video of a walk around Sri Bhagavan's samadhi.

For those who cant visit Ramana Ashram , watching this short video clip with vedic chanting in background  will help create the connection with Bhagwan Ramana and make you feel that you have also done a pradakshina around his samadhi .

Om Peace

The claim that they can not find even a little time for god, is unacceptable. It is true that in cities, people do leave early for work and return home late. But I ask them, ‘ How is it that you do find time for the newspaper, radio and television? Can you not spare a little of this time to Ishwara? Your attitude only shows that there is a lack of devotion. Shed this attitude and develop devotion." He who has no devotion, tries to find excuses for his own lapses.

Deep devotion to God must be developed and we must set aside at least a little time everyday for his worship. - Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamigal

Its going to take longer than 1 week may be.
This write up I started almost the day you suggested it.
so its going to take time for sure.

no need to lock this. comments are welcome :) -- and its good to have everything at one place.
Sure Tushnim
Absolutely no pressure . You must be very relaxed when you do this . All the best .Om Peace .


Good that you started with this project .Keep it up but as I said go slowly but steadily as this is a text that has lot of depth .So ideal will be to keep 1 verse per week , if u can do more than that it is OK but realistically speaking best is to have one per week .If you want you can lock it to avoid distractions and use another thread for discussions on the same .

Om Peace

Subramanian Ji,

This is very very true and it has happened many times in my case. Just few days back I was thinking of Arunachala and missing it a lot, but was helpless coz in my new job I am not allowed to take long leave for the first 3 months. Today it is confirmed that I am getting off from 25-28th and I am so lucky that the full moon is falling these days. I am so excited about this and my desire is fulfilled even without wishing it.

Thank you so much sir for the detailed responce of my question and my gratitude also goes for others who have responded.

Many thanks!

Om Arunaachaleshwaraaya Namaha!


Wish you a wonderful time at Arunachala .
By the way yesterday I read an incident from Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa's life that if the desire to go to any spiritual place is very real ,then God will manifest an opportunity for the same from unknown quarters but this desire should be very  deep and not just a simple wish .

Om Peace

Infinite are the ways of God's play,
Subramania Bharati says this in a different way  எத்தனை கோடியின்பம் வைத்தாய் -எங்கள்
     இறைவா!    இறைவா!    இறைவா!        i.e How many billions of pleasures have you made
Oh God, Oh God, Oh God

Yes. Nochur Ji talks about Yazhpanam Yogaswami.

Yazhpanam Yogaswami also visited Bhagwan Ramana
In 1940, Yogaswami went to India on pilgrimage to Banaras and Chidambaram. His letter from Banaras states, "After wanderings far in an earnest quest, I came to Kasi and saw the Lord of the Universe - within myself. The herb that you seek is under your feet."
One day he visited Sri Ramana Maharshi at his Arunachalam Ashram. The two simply sat all afternoon, facing each other in eloquent silence. Not a word was spoken. Back in Jaffna he explained, "We said all that had to be said.

A good guru and an available disciple

When the disciple is available the Guru comes along .Lord Krishna was always available for Arjuna but till Arjuna surrendered himself to Lord Krishna seeking his help he did not start his Gita Upadesh .

As even Satsangha is an exceptional boon... greatness of satsangha is also indescribable.
Yes true even this forum is a sort of Cyber satsangha for us  :)

Ramana used to say that if one is told "You are not the body" ... they may not understand now, but when time is appropriate that will take effect.

Yes I remember Bhagwan Ramana always giving his "direct path" pointer to everyone who came to him including children , ordinary masses etc and all the ripe and mature souls who came to him got that wisdom very easily .For the unripe or people with excess baggage his pointers were difficult to be understood .

I feel the Serenity Prayer sums it up very well

"God give me the courage to change things , that need to be changed and ought to be changed .
of mind to accept things that cannot be changed
and Wisdom to know the difference "
Om Peace

Dear atmavichar,
      :) One need not read books to get wisdom. One may have a guru, one may have some family member conveying wisdom or one may have read a couple of verses on a notice board somewhere and those lines might have caught attention because , perhaps, the time was ripe.

But Vedanta sravanam is the only systematic thing one can do to when it "Clicks" ... is not easy to say.
If one has done some Sravanam, when the moment is ripe one remembers the right understanding.

Sure Tushnim

We are blessed in our Country to have a formal method of conveying this wisdom plus also the informal method of bringing Ishwara in all our day to day actions and learning to accept everything as the will of God .
Om Peace
