Brahman and Para brahman
« on: October 20, 2008, 08:11:37 AM »
Dear sirs,

Vedas say...  SARVAM BRAHMA MAYAM.  All are brahmam but due to our avidhya we do not. When we realise ourselves we come to know we are all brahmam. ie. Self and God all same. Is not it. Then who is Para brahmam?

In the same way There are...... Guru
                                             parama guru
                                             parameshti guru
                                             paramartha guru
                                             parapara guru
Are these names belong to Dashina moorthy Bhagavan?
When we go to Navagraha pradhikna  we have another Guru Bagavan.

Above all Devi is called Guru Guha swaroopini.

Without any doubt Ramana Bhagavan having all these Gunas He lived like an ordinary human being on this Earth.
Booma Devi  must have felt so proud to have such a feet witch took Giri valam for many years.

Dear Ramanaduli,

Brahman is one without a second.  To call It, as Para Brahman,
is in our own eagerness to highlight Its position,  like calling
a Judge as Honourable or Most Honourable, or calling Siva,
as Parama Siva, or Vishnu as Maha Vishnu.

But regarding Gurus, there are said to be seven stages, according
to their knowledge.  This again, is from the standpoint of others.
These are Brahma Vid, Brahma Varishta, etc., These are called
Seven Jnana Bhoomis or Seven Grounds of Knowledge.

Arunachala Siva.
