Supreme Devotion and Liiving in the service of God
« on: December 17, 2009, 04:35:04 PM »
Question:-

What is the end of devotion (Bhakti) and the path of
Siddhanta (i.e. Saiva Siddhanta)?

Bhagavan Ramana:

It is to learn the Truth that all one's actions peformed with
unselfish devotion, with the aid of the three purified instruments
of body, speech and mind), in the capacity of the servant of the
Lord, become the Lord's actions, and to stand forth free from
sense of "I" and "mine".  This is also the Truth of what Saiva
Siddhantins call Para Bhakti (Supreme Devotion) or living in the
service of God (Irai Pani Nittral in Tamil, as indicated by Muruganar).
