Kaupina Panchakam by Sankara
« on: July 17, 2008, 05:06:32 PM »
Kaupina Panchakam, Five Verses on Loin-cloth, is a small
poem of Sankara, which aptly describes Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi.
A sample:-

Witnessing the changes of the mind and body
Naught but the Self within him beholding
Heedless of outer, of inner, of middle,
Blest indeed is the wearer of loin-cloth!

Chanting Brahman, the Word of redemption
Meditating only on " I am Brahman"
Living on alms and wandering freely
Blest indeed is the wearer of loin-cloth!

Arunachala Siva.

In this Adi Shankara describes the state of advanced devotees who have surrendered to the ultimate reality and living with witnessing consciousness without the noise
of the adjuncts.
