Sri Guru Ramana Prasadam
« on: March 15, 2009, 11:36:15 AM »
Sri Guru Ramana Prasadam, is a collection of verses, by Muruganar.
This book came as Sri Ramana Anubhuti - Part I earlier.  The expanded
version has come out as publication of Sri Ramansramam, Tiruvannamalai, under the title Sri Guru Ramana Prasadam. Sri Robert Butler has translated this into English.  Earlier he had done the translation under the title Nondual Consciousness, Sri Ramana Anubhuti and the English version was published by Sri Ramana Maharshi Centre for Learning, Bangalore.  Now Sri Buter himself has re-written the translation and the book is titled as Sri Ramana Guru Prasadam.  This new book has been published by Sri Ramanasramam.

Some verses of Murugnar's book, have been furnished in Mountain
Path, Deepam, Jayanti, 2008 issue.

I give below Sri Robert Butler's translation of a few verses.

V.195: When I become united with the feet of the sadguru, my worldly ties were cut away through the practice of absorption in
his abiding Selfhood, with no longer any need to acquire empirical
knoweldge and the lofty knowledge of Sivam ripened within me
as the vast Supreme.

V.200:  As the clinging bondgs of false association fell away, I came
to dwell at Lord Siva's noble feet whose measure cannot be told.
Holding on with an unrelenting grip, neither grasping nor letting go,
I came to know the feet of my wise Master, that shine in my Heart.

V.204:  He caused a flower of light, to unfold in the state of pure
consciousness, so that the disastrous error of a body-bound ego faded.  That radiance grew ever brighter with my love until I realized the flawless knowledge of the Self manifesting as the unbroken awareness I-I, within my Heart.
