Eswara Gita - 2
« on: July 06, 2009, 01:31:11 PM »
Verse 41: 

Just as the total darkness is never in association with bright
sunshine, the Jnani never associates himself with the wordly
activities, even though he may be inside the world, eating,
drinking, attending nature calls and sleeping.  It is like
Parameswara being in Prapancha and Maya.

Verse 43:

There is no liberation for anyone, if he remains in ignorance
which is 'tamas'.  But even in such a person, the Self is always
within, but unknown and unattained.

Verse 44:

The sages who have realized the light of Paramasive, [the Self] always see him as total brightness, as Purna Prakasa Swarupa
without taint, without change, beyond happiness and misery,
eternal and with no dissolution.

Verse 45:

When one says, 'I am doing, I am the karta, I am happy or
I am miserable, I am ageing, I am diseased, I am dying'
he is not realized.  Only when he knows that it is his ego,
which is telling all these, he will make efforts to overcome this ego and and begin his Jnana Vichara.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai,

Eswara Gita is a wonderful work.  But I am reading the Tamil
poem /prose commentary version of Sri J. Jayaraman.  Original
from Kurma Puranam, with a possible English translation can
be more helpful.  I am finding it difficult to translate even the
Tamil prose.  Sri J. Jayaraman says, that Bhagavan Ramana's
Upadesa Saram is a brief exposition of what is told in Eswara
Gita, even though Bhagavan Ramana did not know anything
about Eswara Gita at that point of time!  All Brahma Jnanis
write the same thing about their experiences!  Only words
vary. 

Nochur Venkataraman said in Tiruvannamalai that Bhagavan
Ramana's ULLadu Narpadu, Sad Darsanam is again a brief
exposition of Srimad Bhagavatam rid of all its story contents!
Srimad Bhagavatam starts as: Satyam Param Vedam and ends
as Satyam Param deemahi.  There is only Truth and nothing
but Truth.  ULLadu, Truth is the only thing, and all else is Maya!

Arunachala Siva.
