Na Karamanaa.... - 5

Bhagavan Ramana further describes the details of the
Heart, from Yoga Vaisishtam, in Verses 22,23,24,25 & 26
of Sad Darsanam-Supplement.

Verse 22 of SD-Supplement:-

"One of these is worth acceptance, the other worth
rejection.  Listen how they differ.  The organ called
the heart placed somewhere in the chest of the physical
body is worth rejection.  The Heart which is of the form
of Pure Awareness is worth acceptance.  It is both within
and without -- it has no inside or out.

[The Heart, which is the Self is said to be on the right
side of the midchest, is only for sadhaks.  It is really
everywhere, both within and without, no inside or out,
after Sadhana.]

Verse 23 of SD-Supplement:-

"That indeed is the essential Heart and in it all world
abides.  It is the mirror in which all things are seen.
It is the Source of all wealth.  Hence Awareness may be
termed the Heart of all beings.  The heart is not a part of
the perishable body inert like a stone."

[See this in comparison to Arunachala Mahatmyam, Verses
1 and 3, as translated by Bhagavan Ramana.  He says Arunachala is the Heart, and it is the Heart of Siva.  It is
the Cave where Arunagiri Siddha stays and it is full of
the riches and enjoyments of the world. It is the Effulgent
Cave.  Bhagavan Ramana says further in Arunachala Pancharatnam, Verse 2:-  Oh Arunachala!  In Thee the
picture of the universe is formed, has its stay, and is
dissolved.  This is the sublime truth.  Thou art the inner
Self, who dancest in the Heart as "I".  "Heart" is Thy
name, Oh Lord!]

Verse 24 of the SD-Supplement:-

Therefore by the practice of merging the ego in the pure
Heart, which is all Awareness, the tendencies of the mind
as well as the breath will be subdued.

Verse 25 of SD-Supplement:-

By constantly meditating in the Heart, "That pure unconditioned Awareness that is Siva, That am I", remove all the attachment
of the ego.

Verse 26 of SD-Supplement:-

Having investigated the various states of being, and seizing
firmly by the mind hat State of Supreme Reality, play your
part, O hero, even in the world.  You have known the Truth
which is at the heart of all kinds of appearances.  Without
ever turning away from that Reality, play in the world, O hero, as if in love with it.
