"YOU" in Arunachala Pancharatnam
« on: July 22, 2009, 12:28:00 PM »
Devaraja Mudaliar writes in his entry of 18th April 1946, of
Day by Day with Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi.

One Nanavati of Bombay asked Bhagavan:  "In the fifth stanza
of Sri Arunachala Pancharatnam, reference is made to seeing,
"Your form in everything.  What is this form referred to?"

The stanza reads:

Unnidathil oppuvitha uLLathal eppozhudhum
UnnaikaNdu ellamum un uruvai - anniaym il
Anbu seyum annon Arunachala velgum
Inbu uruvai unnil azhnthe.

Bhagavan Rmana said:  "This stanza says that one should completely
surrender one's mind, turn inwards and see 'You' the Self within
and then see the Self in 'You' in everything.  It is only after seeing
the Self within that one will be able to see the Self in everything."

The world, the jiva and gods are all imaginations.  The world is
called Mithya unreal or seemingly real.  But on self realization
through total surrender, one sees within the Self.  For him,
the world, the other jivas appear as the Self.  Sarvam Brahma-mayam.

Arunachala Siva.
