The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Discussion thread

Chanting of Arunachala Shiva by Smt.Sulochana Natarajan, cd name Ramana Mantra and Smt.Saindavi , cd name Arule Ramana is very good.

An Old Telugu man with a long beard, an iron pot and chopper for cutting wood made his abode in the Draupadi temple.  He would beg some food in the town, boil something or other in his  iron pot on a small fire of wood cut with his chopper and eat it during the day.  For hours together he could be seen standing and looking at Bhagavan.  He would spend the night in the temple, which was dilapidated and abandoned and surrounded by jungle.   Once the writer of this piece found him standing all alone in front of the temple and gazing at  Arunachala."I sleep here", he said when the writer asked him what he was doing in the forsaken temple. "What, sleeping here all alone ,   Are you not afraid,"  Exclaimed Chalam.   The old man seemed indignant.  Afraid of what, Bhagavan throws  his light upon me.   All through the night I am surrounded by a blue raidance.  As long as his light is with me, how can I be afraid,"   The incident made Chalam deepply humble.  Bhagavan's love and light was given in full measure to a poor old beggar, while those  who pride themselves on being his chosen disciples are left  high and dry because they have thelsemves to attend to.

Boundless Ocean of Grace

Once somebody brought Bhagavan a wounded dove.  Bhagavan held it in his hands for some time and then asked the devotees gathered in the hall. "Who will take good care of this bird until it is quite well,  No offer came.  Some time back the Maharani of Baroda had presented a white peacock to the Asramam and everybody was eager to take charge of it.  Bhagavan looked around and started talking to the dove, "What a pity you are not a peacock.  You are a mere dove, a useless little thing; not a costly brid presented by a Maharani.  Who wants you?  Who will care for you?"   The dove was kept in the Asramam  in a clumsy cage, became well and flew away.  But the lesson of universal compassion remained.

A man was telling Bhagavan that he learnt one type of yoga under one master, some other type under a different master and so on.  The dinner bell started ringing."Now learn the yoga of eating under this master", said Bhagavan and took the man to have his dinner.(from Boundless Ocean of Grace).

In the year 2003, I got frustrated and worst time in my life , due to my boss(professor) and also my housebuiling loan was blocked.
at France.I just prayed to Sri Ramana Photo in my purse . Since Jan.2004 All the problems get neutralised by Sri Bagavan  Ramana Maharishi. When  I was residing in Pondicherry, I used to go to Thiruannamalai and do girivalam . Now also every 2 or 3 years i go to Ramana Ashramam and sit there.Skanda ashramam , Virupaksha kugai and Gugai Namashivaiyar temple  i Visit and sit there . I chant always Arunachala Shiva , Arunachala Shiva, Arunachala with Bagavan visage in my mind. I get sometimes inner peace and keep silent .  Regarding Self Enquiry I ask Who am I ? and myself reply in my mind I am the body, afterwards I ask question  Who asks this question, it is me and then my mind begins wanders here and there .
I hear Ilaiya Raja's Guru Ramana Geetham, Rajavin Ramana Malai,  and Arule Ramana (Arunachala Aksharamanamalai by Unni Krishnan Superb song)  and chanting of Arunachala Shiva by Selvi Saindavi .
