Arunachala Venba - 2
« on: December 20, 2009, 12:24:32 PM »
A few further verses of Arunachala Venba of Sri Sadhu Om, as
translated by Sadhu Tanmaya Chaitanya, are further given below:-

Verse 4:-  The holy mountains of Meru, Mandhara Giri, the sky-high
Kailas of the Himalayas, the Vindhyachala etc., are glorified as the
dwelling place of Lord Siva.  However, unlike the above abodes of
Siva, Arunachala Hill is unique and most glorious as It is the very
form of Siva.

Verse 7:-  If a spiritual aspirant (a tapasvi, sadhu) yearns to become a sthithaprajna (that is, a jnani of steadfast intellect) by dissociating from the dreadful temptation of the sense objects,
worse than poison, then this Arunachala Kshetra is the most
conducive place of residence for such a tapasvi (as staying near
the Hill, going round the Hill, as pradakshina etc., are powerful
modes of satsangh, association with the Satvastu.

Verse 12:-  Having composed the Arunachala Aksharamana Malai,
and offered it to the bridegroom Arunachala in celebrations of their wedding and then by virtue of merging into Him, Bhagavan Sri
Ramana became my loving mother and Arunachala my father.
Thus for my eyes, this Arunachala Hill ever shines as Lord Siva
with His consort Mother Unnamulai.

Verse 15:-  This separative I-thought, limiting itself to a finite
mortal body suffers endless misery through sheer alienation from
the all-pervasive Lord.  Arunachala absorbs this divisive ego unto
Itself and eliminates once for all the entirely false notion "I am
separate from the Lord."  Achieving such a wondrous seamless
fusion, Arunachala alone remains as the nondual Self, in pure
Kaivalya Sththi.

Verse 18:-  Arunachala wears the hymn-garlands strung by the
famed Saivite saints viz., Tiru Navukkarasar, Tiru Jnana Sambandar, Sri Sundaramoorthy and Manikkavachagar, in the divine outpourings of Tevaram and Tiruvachakam.  In recent times, Arunachala shines
with added lustre by wearing one such divine garland in the form
of Sri Arunachala Akshara Manamalai, that poured forth from the divine sweet countenance of Bhagavan Ramana.

Verse 20:- Many seekers crying in anguish "O Lord! I am crushed
in suffering by my lot of Prarabdha Karma.  I am unaboe to endure them any longer.  Please protect me!", take refuge in the proximity of Arunachala.  Arunachala enters the hearts of such sincere seekers and roots out all types of karmic misery without any vestige and bestows liberation.  Thus Arunachala indeed is the ultimate refuge surpassing all.

Arunachala Siva.
