Sri Arunachala Pancharatnam - 28
« on: September 27, 2009, 12:17:34 PM »
Bhagavan Ramana has wonderfully displayed this non dual
state or Cosmic Consciousness on many occasions in His life.

1. We have seen how He explained to His Mother Azhagamma,
that all the labourers who had come to Skandasramam for food,
are in fact, Arunachala Swarupam, and they should be fed first
without Mother showing any 'madi' (brahminical purity) of her
eating the food first and giving the remaining food to others.

2.  Similarly in the present Asramam, on a Mahadeepam eve,
He told the attendants (who had moved the railings away,
to prevent the dirty village people coming near Bhagavan's
sofa) to move the sofa too to be close to the railings so that
He could see the villagers, who are Arunachala Swarupam!

Once some devotee asked Bhagavan Ramana whether Srimad
Bhagavad Gita was told for the sake of Arjuna, Bhagavan Ramana
replied:  It has been told for the sake of You!

In advitic state, who is Arjuna, who are you?  All are same
for that great Teacher, Krishna.

Again, once when G. V. Subbaramaiah told Bhagavan Ramana,
about the excellence of Shakespeare's poetry, Bhagavan Ramana
told GVS: It is your poetry!

All are for me.  Everything is for me.  When I totally surrender
to Godhead, everything is mine and mine only!

In advaitic state of Cosmic Consciouness, where is the other?

Saint Manikkavachagar sings in Kovil Tirupadigam, Decad on the

You have given You to me!
I have given me to You!
Sankara, who is the wiser of the two?
I got endless Bliss from You!
What is that You got from this poor me!
You are living in my Heart, O Siva of Tiruperundurai!
O Iswara, You have taken the abode in me,
What recompense can I pay to You?

This is the state where God becomes poorer by taking away
my ego in exchange for His Sat-Chit-Ananda.  In fact, God
does not know how to do business!

After this total surrender, and my seeing every object and every
person as me, there is nothing more to be achieved.  After
self realization, where is puja, meditation, japa and karma?
But till such time, one should deal with the world, treating
every object and every person as he only. Because, we cannot
get out of this world, till god decides about our departure from
the body!

Arunachala Siva.
