Nada, Bindu and Kala
« on: February 06, 2009, 11:07:05 AM »
On 24th July 1935, Sri Raju Sastrigal, who chants Veda daily in
the Asramam, asked Bhagavan Ramana, about Nada, Bindu and Kala.

Bhagavan Ramana:  They are in Vedanta terminolgy, Prana, Mana
and Buddhi, the life-current, mind and intellect.  In the Tantras,
Nada is said to be the subtle sound with Tejas, the Light in it. This Light is said to be the body of Siva. When it develops and sound is submerged, it becomes Bindu.  To be full of light, Tejomaya, is the aim. Kala is part of the Bindu.

(In Saiva Siddhanta, Bindu is Siva and Nada is Sakti, Uma.  In
Sri Chakra, the triangles are Sakti and the central point is Siva.
It is merger of Sakti in Siva, Nada in Bindu.  There is one famous
Tirupugazh song, where Arunagiri Natha sings: Salutations to You,
who is both Nada and Bindu, Sakti and Siva.  Muruga is the combination of Sakti and Siva.  While Siva is Matter, Sakti is Enegry,
Muruga is the activated Sakti in Siva, who kills the evil forces.)
