4. David Godman used to say: Mahaperiyava was the champion of Dharma and Sri Bhagavan was a champion of Jnana Vichara.

This sums up the essence of these 2 great Saints . Both of them had their respective paths and stayed true to that path till the end .

Subramanyam Sir

Thanks for the inputs .I have read about it and it is good to refresh it again .
Do you have any information about the Author "Vaiyai R. Subramanian" i.e did he compose it himself or is it a collection of his Guru's sayings etc ? What lineage does he belong to - saivam , advaitam or was he a devotee of Saint Ramalinga Swamigal as in the end he concluded with "Arutperum Jyothu Thani Perum Karunai Thunai" and this is used only by Saint Ramalinga Swamy and his devotees .
Would be very happy if you  have more info about this author and work .

Arunachala / Arunachala Ashtotra by Sri Laxmana Swamy

I recently  found in the following site :
in the Pooja Kalpamu section
Ashtottara on the holy mountain Arunachala as composed by Sri Lakshmana Swamy , a Living Jnani in Arunachala .
It is also available as free PDF download .
I do not know whether anyone has composed any other Ashtottra of Arunachala Hill ( not the Arunachala deity at the Temple ) .
I will be using this for my own personal chanting during my parayana  of Bhagawan Ramana's Akshara Mana Malai to invoke the grace of Holy Hill Arunachala .

Thank you Subramaniam Sir

I will do my best to share my Sadhana and my experience in my own spiritual journey so far when ever time and situation permits .
Om Peace .

After a long gap only last week I got hold of this book "Ellam Ondre" in Tamil and English , published by Ramana Ashram from my old book rack and have decided to read it as part of my daily sadhana .

I am Krishna , a Yoga Teacher from Chennai ,India , trained in the Sivananda System of Classical Hatha Yoga  through Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres , founder Swami Vishnu devananda , who is no more alive in body but wrote 2 best sellers : Complete Illustrated Book of Yoga and Meditation and Mantras .
The Sivananda System of Yoga is a yoga of synthesis of Karma , Bhakthi , Raja , Hatha , Jnana Yoga and I had a taste of all of it but now spending time in solitude except for teaching Yoga to very specific students on a 1-1 basis and rest of the time doing my own sadhana .
I have been associated with the teachings of Bhagawan Ramana right from 1999 and have visited Arunachala , done Giri Valam and visited and stayed at  Ramana Ashram many times and have read lot of books related to Bhagawan Ramana.
My last visit to Arunachala was in Dec 2009 with my brother ( from USA ) and my mother and after that I have not visited Arunachala and do not have any serious intention to visit Again as I am very contended spending time in solitude and enjoy listening to Bhagawan Ramana's Tamil Chants : Akshara Mana Malai , Ulladhu Naarpadu etc at home itself .
I have been benefited by reading the works of Many great Saints and Masters and my favorites are :
Swami Sivananda's books , Bhagwan Ramana's teachings  and experience of devotees with him  , Kanci Paramacharya's Deivathin Kural ,Sringeri Acharya's teaching and dialogues , All books by Osho , J.Krishnamurti , Classical Advaita with Interpretations by Swami Dayananda , Swami Paramarthananda , Swami Omkarananda  etc .
Note : I am not an expert on the teachings of Bhagawan Ramana or in fact of any other Saint /Teacher and love reading any good works by any great saint / spiritual teacher  for my own self enrichment .
I have joined this forum to share my thoughts and experience plus also to understand other's experience and insights .I am not a very active person in forums as I prefer more solitude but would do love to share what best I can and enrich the content of this forum  whenever time permits.I do not want to get in to any debates in to the merits or demerits of a particular Guru , Particular Sadhana , Particular school of thought as I believe that just leads to un-necessary fights and loss of mental peace .My primary Sadhana is Yoga Sadhana but at other times I like to read works by Other great saints and contemplate those teachings in silence . I consider  my association with this forum is also an extension of my sadhana .
All the best . Om Peace .
