Bhagavan Ramana and Mounam - 5
« on: April 22, 2009, 12:02:42 PM »
Great masters like Buddha took refuge in silence, when confronted
with questions of academic curiosity, concerning the ultimate "concepts" like God that transcend empirical experience.  When
Pontius Pilate demand,  "What is Truth?", Jesus replied in sublime

Bhagavan Ramana said Mounam is Iswara Swarupam, itself and
Mouna Diksha [initiation through silence] is the most powerful
form of teaching, transmitting immediate benefit to ripe and ready
disciples.  Mounam is therefore, unique by being the goal (lakshya)
and the pointer [lakshana] at the same time, demonstrating the Biblical saying, " I am the Way, I am the Goal".  Thus in Hindu mythology, Adi Guru, Lord Dakshinamurti expounded the highest
Truth in Mounam to the mind-born sonce of Brahma, conferring
spontaneous enlightenment with felicity.

Bhagavan Ramana sat in supreme silence as the human embodiment of the celestial Mouna Guru, Arunagiri Yogi under the banyan tree,
and dispelled the doubts of genuine seekers.  Verily does He shine
as the Pole Star of spirituality that continues to guide a groping
humanity caught in an ever-deepening existential crisis.  Blessed
indeed are the meek, who heed His liberating wisdom, emanating
from His eloquence, ever-living Mounam!
