Verse  7:


அசைந்தவன்காண் நடமாடிப் பாடல் பேணி
    அழல்வண்ணத் தில்அடியும் முடியுந் தேடப்
பசைந்தவன்காண் பேய்க்கணங்கள் பரவி யேத்தும்
    பான்மையன் காண் பரவிநினைந் தெழுவார் தம்பால்
கசிந்தவன்காண் கரியினுரி போர்த்தான் தான்காண்
    கடலில்விடம் உண்டமரர்க் கமுத மீய
இசைந்தவன்காண் எழிலாரும் பொழிலார் கச்சி
    ஏகம்பன் காண்அவன்என் எண்ணத் தானே.



He danced to the music in graceful movements.
He pities them that went in search of His feet when He stood a column of fire.
Such is His nature that the Ghost-throngs hail and adore Him.
For them who rise up thinking on Him He oozes out in love.
He mantled Himself in the tusker's hide.
He (alone) consented to eat the venom of the sea that Devas might get nectar.
He is Ekampan of Kacchi girt with beauteous groves.
behold Him enshrined in my thought!

Arunachala Siva.

Sri Sadhu Om:

When we attend to other things the awareness 'I Am' is mixed up with awareness of a body and other such adjuncts, so instead of shining just as 'I Am' it shines as 'I am this body', but when we try to attend only to our basic self-awareness , 'I Am', the adjuncts recede into the background and self-awareness begins to shine more clearly and prominently. The more keenly we attend to 'I Am', the more awareness of all other things fades away, until eventually we remain shining as 'I Am' alone.
Whenever we attend to anything other than 'I' we seem to be a body, but when we try to attend only to 'I' we begin to recognize that 'I' is actually something quite distinct from whatever body I seem to be.





Dear devotees, the above quote is a wonderful recapitulation, in short, of the Enquiry as taught by Sri Bhagwan.  Yes, practice is to attend only to the Pure Awareness 'I Am', which, sure, is not pure in the beginning of the practice, and is mixed up with the awareness of the body and other adjuncts. But one need not lose heart, and by the contrivance of the Enquiry "To whom? To me? Who Am I?", one must gradually progress to the shining of Awareness without body-consciousness and other adjuncts, until eventually one remains shining as 'I Am' alone, that is, until the recognition that 'I' is actually something quite distinct from anything whatever to which it attaches with dawns or happens, as Sri Sadhu Om beautifully said.
Pranam,

Verse  6:

அழித்தவன்காண் எயில்மூன்றும் அயில்வா யம்பால்
    ஐயாறும் இடைமருதும் ஆள்வான் தான்காண்
பழித்தவன்காண் அடையாரை அடைவார் தங்கள்
    பற்றவன்காண் புற்றரவ நாணி னான்காண்
சுழித்தவன்காண் முடிக்கங்கை அடியே போற்றுந்
    தூயமா முனிவர்க்காப் பார்மேல் நிற்க
இழித்தவன்காண் எழிலாரும் பொழிலார் கச்சி
    ஏகம்பன் காண் அவன்என் எண்ணத் தானே.


He is the One that smote the three towns with the dart tipped with fire.
He is the Ruler of Aiyaaru and Idaimarutu.
He likes not them that seek Him not.
He is the Prop of those that seek Him.
His now-strings is an adder of the ant-hill.
He contained the Ganga in His crest.
He caused it to descend For the sake of the pure and graceful Munis who hail His feet.
He is Ekampan of Kacchi girt with beauteous groves.
Behold Him,
the One enshrined in my thought!

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 4:


தாயவன்காண் உலகிற்குத் தன்னொப் பில்லாத்
    தத்துவன்காண் மலைமங்கை பங்கா என்பார்
வாயவன்காண் வரும்பிறவி நோய்தீர்ப் பான்காண்
    வானவர்க்குந் தானவர்க்கும் மண்ணு ளோர்க்கும்
சேயவன்காண் நினைவார்க்குச் சித்த மாரத்

ஏயவன்காண் எழிலாரும் பொழிலார் கச்சி
    ஏகம்பன் காண்அவன்என் எண்ணத்தானே.
He is the Mother.
Unto the world He is the Tattvam beyond compare.
He abides in the lips of those that chant Thus: "O Consort of the Mountain's Daughter!"  He will annul the cycle of transmigration.
He is far away from the Devas,
The Asuras and the earth-born.
He abides in the hearts of those who think on His divine feet in single-minded Devotion.
He is Ekampan of Kacchi girt with beauteous groves.
Behold Him,
the One enshrined in my thought!

Verse 3:

நீற்றவன்காண் நீராகித் தீயா னான்காண்
    நிறைமழுவுந் தமருகமும் எரியுங் கையில்
தோற்றவன்காண் தோற்றக் கேடில்லா தான்காண்
    துணையிலிகாண் துணையென்று தொழுவா ருள்ளம்
போற்றவன்காண் புகழ்கள்தமைப் படைத்தான் றான்காண்

ஏற்றவன்காண் எழிலாரும் பொழிலார் கச்சி
    ஏகம்பன் காண்அவன்என் எண்ணத் தானே.


He is the ash-bedaubed.
He became water as well as fire.
He holds in His hands the shapely Mazhu,
the Tudi and the fire,
He is birth-less and deathless though He manifests.
He has none as His help.
He fosters them who with all their heart hail Him as their unfailing help.
All glories abide in Him.
On His spreading matted hair,
He keeps the speckled snake and the flood of Ganga.
He is Ekampan of Kacchi girt with beauteous groves.
Behold Him,
the One enshrined in my thought!

Arunachala Siva.

He is the many lives.
He pervades everywhere.
He annuls the sins and karma of those that rise from slumber hailing Him.
He wears a chaplet of pure flowers.
He is the medicine who is Origin,
Sustenance and End.
He annuls the burdens of the worlds.
He abides,
never parting thence,
in the hearts of those whoever think of Him and hail Him with flowers.
He is Ekampan of Kacchi girt with beauteous groves.
Behold Him,
the One enshrined in my thought!

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Vichara
« Last post by Nishta on August 11, 2018, 06:50:45 AM »
M: We must conclude that this "I" is the permanent substance because everything else is in a state of flux. If you never forget this, this is liberation. (Living by the Words of Bhagavan, pg 236


*Have you noticed that the "I" that began sadhana is exactly the same "I" that you can sense right now. No amount of sadhana can ever change or improve that I-ness. Rather sadhana is only for ceasing to veil that "I" and for realising that that "I" sense is your fundamental and eternal nature.
 
 
M: When the "I" is kept up as the "I" only, it is the Self. (Maharshi's Gospel)

Dear Devotees,

I say with certainty that for one who has practiced Self-enquiry with love for the Divine (Self) and unwavering focus sooner than later understands progressively with more and more clarity that we ourselves have projected onto ourselves a false world of our own imagination, based on our own memories, ideas, concepts, fears and aspirations. Birth after birth these have become so deeply embedded that we now find ourselves imprisoned in the prison of our own making.
Self-enquiry breaks this pernicious spell by demolishing all our ideas, habits, concepts, desires and fears, revealing them to be unreal. Such is the greatness of the practice of abiding in the 'I', which alone is the real form of the Enquiry as taught by Sri Bhagwan


Pranam,
 Anil

Tiruk Kacchi Ekambam: (1)

Verse  1:

கூற்றுவன்காண் கூற்றுவனைக்குமைத்த கோன்காண்
    குவலயன்காண் குவலயத்தின் நீரா னான்காண்
காற்றவன்காண் கனலவன்காண் கலிக்கும் மின்காண்
    கனபவளச் செம்மேனி கலந்த வெள்ளை
நீற்றவன்காண் நிலாவூருஞ் சென்னி யான்காண்
    நிறையார்ந்த புனற்கங்கை நிமிர்ச டைமேல்
ஏற்றவன்காண் எழிலாரும் பொழிலார் கச்சி
    ஏகம்பன் காண் அவன்என் எண்ணத் தானே.

He is the God of dissolution.
He is the King who smote Death.
He is earth.
He became the water of the earth.
He is wind.
He is fire.
He is rumbling thunder and lightning.
His is the glorious,
coral-like ruddy body bedaubed with white ash.
On His crest floats the crescent moon.
On His long matted hair He sports the Ganga of abundant water.
He is Ekampan of Kacchi girt with beauteous groves.
Behold Him,
the One enshrined in my thought!

Arunachala Siva.
