Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Bhagavatam and Tiruvachakam
« on: March 03, 2009, 10:36:16 AM »
Once in 1941, Bhagavan Ramana casually referrred to two verses
of Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Verse X.11 and V.16 and said that the
essence of these two verses have been combined into a single verse
of Bhagavatam, Aruneneva ..... etc., which means,

"As soon as the ignorance is destroyed, by knowledge, as darkness by dawn, the Self then manifests Itself like the Sun."

He further pointed out how the same idea is conveyed in a single
line of Manikkavachakar's  Tiruvachakam, which says:

"This day one me in Grace, Thou risest bright, a Sun bidding from out my mind the darkness flee..."

Tamil:  "InRu enakku aruLi, IruL kadinthu uLLathu ezhukinra
JnayiRe ponRu..."

                         (Kovil Tiurpadigam, Tiruvachakam, 22.7)
