Bhagavan's Aruna Vijayam - 2009 - 11
« on: September 05, 2009, 02:07:29 PM »
Sri Arunachala Padigam, the love song on Arunachala, continues....

7. If ether, air, fire, water, earth, all living beings and material
objects, are nothing but You and You alone.  O Pure One, all-
embracing light, how can I stand separate and aloof from You?
Since You shine within the Heart, one vast Expanse without another,
how can I stand out as the one distinct from You?  Come into the
open, O Arunachala, and plant your lotus feet on this fellow's head!

8.  Destroying in me all thought of making a living in the world, You
have turned me into a worthless wastrel.  If You leave me in this
stage, I can only be miserable and unhappy.  Death would be better
than this knd of life.  Supreme Being embodied in Aruna Hill and showing in the world as the cure for madness, (delusion), grant
me, mad and worthless, the Sovereign medicine of clinging to your feet!

9.  O Lord Supreme, I am the first among those who lack the supreme wisdom to clasp Your feet in freedom from attachment.  Ordain
that my burden should no more be mine, but Yours, for what can
be a burden for You, the all-sustainer?  Lord Supreme, I have had
enough of carrying this world upon my head, parted from you.
Arunachala, think no more of keeping me away from Your feet!

10.  Something new I have discovered!  This soul-attracting Hill-magnet stifle the movements of any one that thinks of it but once, turns his face towards itself, pulls him in, makes him non-moving like Itself, and feeds upon his sould thus ripened sweet.  Understand this wonder and save Yourselves, O Souls!  Such is the mighty Aruna Hill, the life-destroyer shining in the Heart.

11.  How many are there who like me have been destroyed for regarding this Hill as the Supreme Being!  O men who, disgusted with this life of endless misery, seek some means of giving up the body, there is on earth, a medicine rare, which kills without killing anyone, who but thinks of it once.  Know that this rare medicine is the mighty Aruna Hill, this and nothing else.

Thus, Sri Arunachala Padigam is full of bhakti bhava.  Sri Arunachala Ashtakam is pure Jnana bhava. 

Arunachala Siva.
