KEY TO SELF REALISATION
« on: July 18, 2008, 04:58:37 AM »
I THINK IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW WITHOUT PURITY IN HEART.

ANY AMOUNT OF MEDITATION WITH SELFISH NATURE WILL NOT YIELD GODLINESS, CERTAINLY WE MAY BECOME LIKE RAVANESWARADU TO ATTAIN DEATH

SIVA SIVA ARUNACHALA SIVA

Dear Sankar, You are quite correct.  Removing all other thoughts,
Bhagavan says, will take you to the Heart, the Self.  Of course,
that is the most difficult one for anybody and Bhagavan's Grace
is necessary and essential.  Arunachala Siva.

I think  if we weep at bhagvan with sincre heart HE will make to float us and reach to the destination safely.

I FIND SURRENDER IS THE ONLY WAY OUT  AND BY HIS GRACE

Yet it is difficult since it requires lot of PATIENCE, PERSISTENCE AND TOLERACE.

Many times I fall down like a child learning to walk and Bhagvan comes to resque and sometimes he remains unobserved though he knows it. HE is so detached with lot of love. HE alone knows what HE is doing.

ATTACHMENT GIVES SUFFERING AND DETACHMENT GIVES FREEDOM.

Dear Sankar, yes genuine crying is one way to in our run-up to
the Self realization.  Bhagavan had chided mother Azhagamma, when
she had asked Akhilandamma to procure greens from the Hill.  Mother
Azahagamma cried.  Bhagavan said:  Cry Cry, it is good for you. 
Likewise, when I read several incidents in Bhagavan's life, I have
cried.  He told Annamalai Swami, the kitchen worker, one early morning,
to taste the chutney He has grinded.  Annamalai Swami hesitated saying
that he was not a brahmin (and non-brahmins should not take anything
before brahmins had eaten!) and that he had not by then brushed his
teeth.  Bhagavan said:  It does not matter, you may taste a little and
tell he how it is.  "Go for brushing the teeth afterwards.  Do not tell
anyone!" When Echammal brought her new born grandson, who had
become destitute, since his parents had died, and shed tears,  Bhagavan
also cried irresistably!  Bhagavan was like a mirror, refelecting the joys and sorrows of His devotees.  If one could cry reading such incidents, it is
a sure way to cleanse one's mind and ego.

Arunachala Siva.

While weeping at the feet in heart Grace is flowing
It shakes the body from head to toe
Abide in silence

Dear Sankar, genuine crying really helps.  Saint Manikkavachagar

Dear Subramaniyan ji

You mentioned when Bhagavan's mom cried showing the baby to Him Bhagavan also cried. Janani will cry when people cry and laught when people laugh. I read somewhere. What is the diference in janani's cry. I think inward they may be thinking that about our ignorance. Because they realised nothing is permanent so there is no point of crying. They must be thinking when this ignorant people will wake up. This compassion make them to cry. Is it?

Dear Ramanaduli,

When Bhagavan's mother, Azhagamma cried, when Bhagavan
chided her for asking greens from Akhilandamma, He did not
cry.  He made her to cry and understand the ignorance behind
such pettty desires in life.  Bhagavan cried when Echammal brought
her grandson, when her daughter had died, and cried uncontrollably.
It was not to indicate her ignorance.  He reallly cried.  Because
a Brahma Jnani is like a mirror, and He will mirror the feelings
of the person who is looking at a mirror!  Saint Manikkavachagar
said in Tiruvachakam, "Aanal, Azhudhal Unnaip Peralame!"
-- O Siva! But, would I not get you, if I cry...  Saint Arunagiri Natha says
in Seer Padha Vaguppu, The Poem on the beautiful feet of Muruga,
"Azhuthu Thozhuthu Urugumavar, Arai Koovi Aalvadhuvum...."
"O Muruga! You will come and rule, those who cry, pray and melt
at your feet!"

Arunachala Siva.
