The experience of 'I am'
« on: March 20, 2009, 06:33:29 PM »
Kavi Yogi Shuddhananda Bharati

What he taught me on that day
sustained me for twenty-five years:

The egoless ‘I am’ is realisation. The experience of ‘I am’ is
peace. The meaning of ‘I’ is ‘God’. The outgoing mind is
bondage, the in-going mind is freedom. The heartward mind
brings bliss. The restless worldly mind brings bondage and
misery. The triads of knower, known and knowledge are
one. You go to a cinema. Observe the projector light. If the
projector light fails the whole show stops. Be Self-centered
and finish your work in silence and come out. The world is
nothing but the objectified mind.

Nagaraj
॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.
~ Vasishta

Listening to words directly from a holy man is very effective.
It is a communication from a heart to a heart and produce deep effect.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

Swami Chinmayananda has told after meeting Bhagavan Ramana,

" I Balakrishna Menon*, had learnt all that I have to learn from
Bhagavan Ramana in the few hours that I had spent with Him,
and all that I had learnt in Uttarakasi later, were nothing new."

* Swami Chinmayananda later.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai,

Kavi Yogi Suddhanada Bharati is a great Tamil scholar and a Rajayoga
adept.  He was also a freedom fighter and was running a magazine called Bharata Sakti in around 1920s and 1930s.  He came to have
a darshan of Bhagavan Ramana.  One meeting was sufficient and he left politics and started self enquiry along with his Rajayoga.  His photograph is available in Arunachala's Ramana, Boundless Ocean
of Grace, either in volume 4 or 5. He has written a Tamil biography of
Bhagavan Ramana titled Sri Ramana Vijayam.  This is a biography upto say 1940s and the later chapters were written by Viswanatha Swami, I am not sure.  A reprint is now available in Sri Ramanasramam. 

Many Tamil devotees had come to Bhagavan after reading this book.

Arunachala Siva.
