Rama Gita
« on: July 24, 2008, 12:01:31 PM »
Rama Gita is a chapter in Adhyatma Ramayana, which embodies
advaita principles, as a dilalogue between Rama and Lakshmana.
While Jnana Vashishta is a dialogue between Sage Vasishta and
Rama, this one is what Rama preached to Lakshmana.  This is of
62 verses and this has been translated by a monk of Ramakrishna
Order, in 1908.  A sample,

Verse 16:- "Knowledge and action being very contrary in result,
cannot be together; the wise should therefore entirely renounce
action and always keeping aloof from the objects of senses, should
contemplate on the Self."

Verse 20:- Avidya once annhilated by secondless and pure theology,
will not be born again.  If Aviday will not appear again, how can the
understanding 'I do this' appear?  The independent knowledge
therefore does not want any help, and is singly adopted to procure
perfection."

Verse 32:- " The three fold state of the intellect of three qualities,
caused by dream etc., also seem to be in the Self.  But as they ae
opposed to one another, consequently they are simply false
representation in the Supreme, which is Absolute-Knowledge-Bliss,
and All Pervading."
