The Holy Silence and the ego
« on: May 10, 2009, 06:57:22 PM »
There were some posts on ego/dislikes etc., Muruganar says
in Sri Guru Ramana Prasadam:

Versse 198:-

My natural duty, as I perceive, is to dwell without thought upon
those feet that abide in Holy Silence, flooding my consciousness
with bliss.  This is the state of liberation, the holy silence in which
the ego that thrives on the mind's confusion is rendered powerless
and disappears completely.

Verse 204:-

He caused a flower of light to unfold in the state of pure consciousness, so that the disastrous error of a body-mind ego
faded.  That radiance grew ever brighter with my love until I
realized the flawless knowledge of the Self manifesting as the
unbroken awareness I, I, within my heart.

Verse 213:-

Drawn by his magentic charm I have sought shelter at the lotus
feet of Sri Ramana whose teaching is eternal, so that the murky
twilight of the illusory world, created by the trickery of the senses,
has faded in the clear light of dawn like turmeric left out in the sun.*

(*  Turmeric loses its colour when exposed to sunlight, and becomes

Arunachala Siva.
