« on: July 05, 2008, 11:33:17 AM »
Prasna-Uttara Ratna Malika is again a small book, comprising of 67
slokas.  The verses are in the form of two simple questions and two
simple answers, in each verse.  The book details the do's and don'ts for the seeker and the ultimate realization.

Verse 45 :-  "What is the source of all happiness?  The merits of one's
good actions.  What causes misery?  One's sins.  By what will one be
endowed with Lordliness?  By the devoted worship of Siva."

Verse  53:- "What is the most difficult thing for a man to do?  To keep
the mind always under control."

Verse 54:- "What is the most adorable being?  The Power of Pure

Verse 58:- "Who is the Lord of Maya?  The Supreme Being.  What is the
greatest magic?  The ever changing universe.  What resembles a dream
experience?   The activities of the waking life!  What is the true being?
It is Brahman, the Supreme Being."

Arunachala Siva.
