Sri Guru Ramana Prasadam - 5
« on: April 25, 2009, 07:18:57 PM »
Verse 87:  The dark ignorance of the deluded mind, which is in fact
the aggressive ego that stands as the source of all evil, disappeared,
its form dissolving into the abundance of the supreme, the pure
Sadasiva, that shines alone.

Verse 91:  This very day, through the divine blessing of Jnana gained
through Mauna, I have come to know the one supreme reality, shining forth in the form of my own true Self, and the very instant that I realized that apart from my own Self, and the very instant that I realized that apart from my own Self, nothing whatsoever existed,
iccha sakti and the rest* came to an end.   

(* There are three desires of Maha Maya.  These are iccha sakti =
desire, kriya sakti = action, and jnana sakti = wisdom.  These
are identified as the three prongs of Lord Siva's trident.)

Verse 93:  When the light of his holy feet, that tranquil shore that is so hard reach, wondrously caused my heart to blossom, the ghostly
dance of the "I" with its wild antics subsided in the state of Mauna,
an existence whose glorious nature is impossible to describe.

Verse 100:  Through the glorious wisdom of his all-transcending nature that graciously granted me the attainment of final bliss,
free of all mental confusion, my heart attained fulfilment in the abiding state wherein all actions, whether of thought, word or
deed, are no more.

Verse 114:  As the peace of the experience of bliss-consciousness,
the grace of the Self, free of the delusive torment of the deformed
ghost of the ego, welled up and flooded over me like the holy lake,
Manasa-sarovara*, the liberation -- the supreme reality that dwells
within the heart -- was granted to me,  Such is the nature of grace.
(* Literally this means the sacred lake in Himalayas, (Tibet), as
well as the tutelary deity said to be Naga, serpent, adept, sage.
The lake also called Anavatapta, is a place of yearly pilgrimage
to Hindus because the Vedas are claimed to have been written
on in shores.)
