Sri Arunachala Venba - 3

Sri Sadhu Om continues....

14. This little separative "I-thought" (ego) assumes myriad
roles one after another as its mask and shelter, thus perpetuating
samsara.  Arunachala is the compassionate Lord who isolates ego
from its myriad false identities and finally extinguishes it without
residue, leaving only the Self that ever shines without a veil in the
Heart.

16. At the tender age of a mere sixteen years, Maharshi Ramana
attained the purest supreme Knowledge as His own real nature
and thus became the embodiment of absolute bliss, revelling ever
as Siva-Consciousness.  Surely, the divinely austere life of Sri
Ramana is suffused with Arunachala.

17. To those seekers who surrender to Arunachala as the ultimate
refuge, in sheer despair with the thought: "I am such a wretched
jiva whose lot is to suffer unendingly; is there any hope at all for me?", Arunachala bestows the happiness of such freedom that is
far superior to all heavenly pleasures by revealing to them  the
Supreme Self Knowledge.  Arunachala is indeed the Jnana-Kalpataru (the famed wish fulfilling celestial tree).

18. Arunachala wears the hymn-garlands strung by the famous
Saivite saints viz., Tirunavukkarasar, Jnana Sambandhar,
Sundaramoorthy and Manikkvachagar in the divine outpourings
of Tevaram and Tiruvachakam.  In recent times, Arunachala shines
with added lustre by wearing one more of such divine garland in
the form of  "The Bridal Garland of Letters" [Akshara Mana Malai]
that poured forth from the divinely sweet countenance of Sri
Ramana.

19. Great saints practising intense devotion to Lord Siva in different births and thereby attaining the siddhi of composing heart melting
hymns in countless variety and offering those hymn-garlands to
Arunachala, and thus stay clinging to his lotus feet, which are
litered with such glorious garlands.
