Tayumanavar Songs
« on: December 09, 2008, 11:11:31 AM »
We shall continue to see certain other verses in Sukavari, the Ocean
of Bliss, of Tayumanavar, the compositon which Bhagavan Ramana
liked very much.

Verse 9 reads as under:

The different religions  which have different ideas and concepts,
Will not speak the same thing, and there will be quarrel.
The sages who are ascetics, will not speak anything to others,
The learned yogis due to Nirivikalpa Samadhi, will not speak.
O my Primordial Guru! with three eyes! I shall take only what you
             have spoke to me!
The One who has neither going nor coming, what can you speak
              with words, excepting in Silence?
The Yogis on attainment will speak with doubts the various methods
               of yoga,
Hence I decide to stay without any company, without speech,
But if you activate the maya of my mind, how can I attain bliss?
O the Nirguna, the Primordial God,  the great Effulgence!
O the ocean of Bliss, please grace me in Silence with no-mind!
