How to get rid of Vasanas etc., ? - 6

Padamalai verses of Murugnar say like this:

Verse 2442:

Only the annihilation of mind that results from the destruction of
Vasanas is proper, unceasing worship of Siva-Padam.

Verse 1785:

The worship of divine forms will completely destroy the ego, the I am the body conceit.

Sri Ramana Gita, Chapter 16, verses 5,6,and 7 say:

Bhagavan:  When the devotee, regarding himself as a separate,
limited individual of poor understanding, and desirous of deliverence
from suffering, takes the omnipresent supreme reality to be some deity, and worships it, even then he attains in the end That (alone.).
O best of men, one who attributes names and forms to the deity through those very names and forms, transcends all name and form.

Guru Vachaka Kovai, Verse 659 says:

Those people who lack consciousness of being, the natural light,
( I am), and who consequently come, through ignorance, under
the spell of karma and suffer, will have their delusion ended and reach the Self, the Supreme Reality, through meditation on a divine
form that is dear to them.

and others.)

Dear Dr. Raju,

Yes. Bhagavan Ramana sings in Arunachala Padigam:  "I am no doubt near the lotus.  But I am like a frog, always near the lotus.  Please make me a honey bee, so that I can taste the honey in you.
If I leave my body and die, without tasting the honey, the blame
is yours."  In other words, make me fit to taste the bliss of the Self.

Arunachala Siva.
