Deepa Darsana Tattvam
« on: November 23, 2009, 01:37:19 PM »
After writing a verse on Sri Arunachala Tattvam, Muruganar
requested Bhagavan Ramana to compose a verse on the significance
of the Seeing the Beacon Light on the Hill.  Bhagavan Ramana
composed the following verse:

Ittanuve nanam enum madhiyai neettap
Buddhi idayate porundi aha nokkal
adduvita mamei ahac chudar kangai bhu
Maddhi yenum anna malaic chudar kaan meyye.

Getting rid of the idea of treating this insentient body as "I",
the mind thus thinking given up and the mind turned inward into
the Heart merging firmly with inward perception, is to realize,
seated as the Heart Centre of the universe,  the real form
of effuglence within, the nondual pure Awareness - the one Sat
within.  Know as Truth is the witnessing of the beacon light on the crown of Arunachala.         

Arunachala Puranam, the Tamil epic mentions the fruits of
witnessing the Deepam as follows:

1. Those who behond the beacon light atop the Hill will live
long, freed of afflictions like hunger and disease.

2. Kings will ensure victory for their rightful wars.

3. The Tapasvins shall get their obstacles removed and attain

4. Those who witness and pray with devotion will gain liberation
for themselves and their ancestors and descendents covering
twenty one generations.

Once Bhagavan Ramana was asked why He was tirlessly looking
at the Hill, and He replied:  I am looking at the Atma within.

Suri Nagamma writes about Bhagavan Ramana bubbling with
joy and tearful eyes, when the beacon light is lighted on the
Maha Deepam, Kartikai Poornima (as per solar calendar) Day.

Arunachala Siva.
