Pearls of Wisdom given through Nome -1
« on: April 16, 2009, 12:45:11 PM »
Mr. Nome known to Bhagavan Ramana's devotees, as the co-author
of Sri Ribhu Gita in English.  This book is a verse to verse translation
of the Tamil work of Ulaganatha Swamigal and has been published
by Society for Abidance in Truth, SAT, Santa Cruz, California.  This book is also sold by Sri Ramansramam in India.  There is one long
article by Nome, titled Timelss Presence,  in the Centenary of the Advent Souvenir, 1996.  There are a lot of pearls of wisdom, that are given through him, by Bhagavan Ramana.  I shall give some of them in these posts.   

*

Silence. Absolute Silence.  Eternal Silence.  This is Sri Bhagavan's
Presence.  Unfettered by time or space, His Presence transcends
the illusory boundaries of life and death.  Making itself known, it
destroys delusion and bondage and bring liberation, from all imagination, form all that is unreal.  Sri Bhagavan's Presence, is
the Presence of Siva Himself, the Reality of Brahman itself.

*

The effect of His perpetual Silence is impossible to measure as the
Silence itself is beyond all mental conception.  His every word, glance,
and motion is permeated in this Silence, yet the Silence itself is indefinable, ungraspable, in terms of body, speech, and mind.  In this
Silence, delusion evaporates and illusion vanishes.

*

His Grace is unbounded.  It operates in countless ways incomprehensible to the mind.  Its scope, touching and illuminating
so many lives in so many ways, whether recognized for what it is,
or invisible to the ideas of the perceiver, causes one to stand in
thought-free awe for a timeless moment before prostrating, without
hesitation, in full blissful namaskaram.  His Grace knows no impediment, because of its omnipotence and its omnipresence.
His Grace, which is identical to His Presence, is ineffable in its
blissfulness, inconceivable in its vastness, unfathomable in its
depth, immeasurable in its compassion, illimitable in its power, indisputable in its Truth, and unalterable in its eternity.

*

By Grace alone is Liberation from the imagined bondage attained.
By Grace alone is there Realization of the true Self.  By Grace alone
does meditation occur and the profound enquiry, "Who am I?" succeeed in awakening one  from the dream of an ego with its illusory world-appearance.  By Grace alone devotion arises in the heart.
By Grace alone is there freedom, happiness and peace.
