Atma Vidya Vilasa - 1
« on: April 21, 2009, 11:03:45 AM »
Atma Vidya Vilasa, is an advaitic work by Swami Sadasiva Brahmendra, in Sanskrit.  Sri V. Narayanan, has translated the
work in English/Tamil, and the book was published by Kamakoti
Kochasthanam, Chennai in 1951.  A few verses are given here.

I bow down to that first great Teacher [Sri Dakshinamoorthy], who
is immaculate, whose lotus hand is in the Chinmudra pose, who
bestows on His devotees all their desires and who is overflowing
with endless bliss.

*

He who was sleeping under the influence of Maya and who during
his sleep had dreams by the thousands, he is now awakened by the
words of his Guru and delights in the ocean of Bliss.

*

The good Sannyasin is unique, rejoicing at will in the utmost regions
of incomparable Bliss, with his heart's passions completely cooled
by its proximity to the surging waves of Grace flowing from his
good teacher (Guru).

*

The Sage rests quiet, visualizing the Atman that remains after he
has by his buddhi uncreated the five elements, inverting the
the order of their creation [evolution].

*

He sports like a child, plunged in the Ocean of Pure Bliss, and
delighted with the diverse actions of men, without any feeling
of 'You' and 'I'.

*

Though the sun be cool, though the moon scorch and the tongue
of fire leap downward, the Jivanmukta knows it to be the work
of Maya and does not wonder thereat.
