A Raw Prayer
« on: May 25, 2009, 01:04:43 PM »
O, Ramana, why don’t you call me to your place?
Have I not ground myself enough?
I am not able to hang around here!
IF you will you can pull me like a magnet
but you will not do,
you would say, I am there, be there!
But I can’t see you here completely
Can I not circumvent all this grinding,
If you will?
What can I do O Ramana, what can I do?
Everything is in your hands only
then what can I do?
What Karma to work out? What Prarabdha?
Take me back to where I came form, You
Who am I? Who am I? Who am I?
Rather me finding it out myself, O Ramana,
you can show me that in a moment and fix me
for you have told a Guru is a guide, Still
why do you leave me alone?


॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.

DEar Nagaraj

Sometimes I think, I do not have good guru to guide us. but If I stand even in front of Ramana He may think Oh God why I cannot have good deciple like Annamali swamy. I always think some thing is lacking in me only. In tamil there is one proverb, PATHIRAM ARINDHU PITCHAI IDU. If I go to ask Gyana pitchai in front of Bhagavan, He may be think twice because  there is no worthful Pathiram.
Anyway your prayer is very nice.

Dear Ramanaduli,

No such despair.  Nobody is worthless for Bhagavan Ramana.
Again He is the Living Guru, and do not go in search of a
guru in body.  Many such gurus are boguses.  Bhagavan Ramana
sings in Arunachala Akshara Mana Malai, Verse 19:

Please remove my mistakes/deficiencies, make my good in
all respects, and then rule me as your servant, O Arunachala!

He will take care.  Our job is to only be faithful to Him, regardless of our mistakes/deficiencies which we can overcome
by His grace in due course.  EN KADAN PANI SEYTHU KIDAPPATHE....sang Tiru Navukkarasar.

Arunachala Siva.
