Being Through
« on: January 28, 2010, 07:04:51 PM »
Being Through

Pure air even if it is contaminated with smoke knows that it is pure, since it "Be's through" the smoke.

Pure water even if it is contaminated with pollutants knows that it is pure, since it "Be's through" the pollutants.

Pure mind even if it gets contaminated with thoughts knows that it is pure, since it "Be's through" the thoughts.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

Diet
« Reply #1 on: February 01, 2010, 07:52:38 AM »
Diet of a worldly person:
Tasty dishes, deserts, drinks.

Diet of a spiritual person:
Scriptures, Hymns, Bhajans, Meditation.

A worldly person enjoys the taste and fills the stomach.
A spiritual person "unfills" the mind and enjoys the soul.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

Dear silentgreen,

There was one Siddha by name Kaduveli Siddhar.  He was staying
on a hill and was constantly in meditation, Brahma Dhyanam.  He
realized Brahman and continued to live as an ascetic on the hill.
The King asked the courtiers whether it is true that Kaduveli is
a Brahma Swarupam.  They all said Yes.  He wanted to 'disturb'
Kaduveli Siddhar.  He sent one of his courtesans.  She went and
asked Kaduveli to marry her.  Kaduveli agreed and married her.
She then wanted a baby.   Kaduveli slept with her and gave a baby.  One day, she left him back to the palace leaving the baby with him.  She told the king that Kaduveli is a fraud and he had married her
and also got a baby through her.  That evening, she was dancing on in the palace.  Kaduveli had to come there, because the baby was
crying for mother's milk.  He stood with the baby and was waiting for her to complete the dance.  Seeing Kaduveli and the baby, everyone
including the King roared with laughter.  Kaduveli then gave the baby and stood before the king.  The king asked:  Are you  Brahma Swarupam?  The Siddhar said:  Yes.  The king then asked him:
How come you are married, had conjugal bliss with my courtesan and also got a baby?  The Siddhar said:  Yes, I did all this.  Still I am
 Brahma Swarupam.  The king said:  Prove it.  The Siddhar said:
I am Brahmaswarupam and this is the Truth.  I am always the "Being
through." He then walked towards a wall and entered into the wall
and disappeared!

Bhagavan Ramana has told this story once or twice in the Hall.

Arunachala Siva.

Self Friend

No new friends came,
And old friends are gone,
Life-breath still sounds,
For self still stays on.

Sun rays and holes

Sun rays and holes

A curtain had many holes of various sizes through which sun rays streaked inside a room.
Aligning in the ray path of any of the holes gives a faint touch of the sun.
However only concentrating on the sizes of the holes, one may miss the sun rays.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

Happiness of self is absolute
« Reply #5 on: March 03, 2010, 02:50:32 PM »
Even if all the persons of the world become self-realized at the same time, they can all be happy at the same time. Their happiness does not depend on the pity generated by seeing sufferings, or in contrast with some unhappiness. Their happiness is absolute since it comes from the same self which is impersonal and of the nature of bliss.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

To write english, we need english alphabets,
To write sanskrit we need devanagari alphabets,
To write the language of the divine, we need the alphabets of the saints.

Spectacles enable us to see the outer world with more clarity.
Saints leave us their hearts for the world.
Wearing their hearts enable us to see the inner world with more clarity.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

One who needs a strict diet for fear of going astray is very much a wordly person.

One who prescribes do's and don'ts is a worldly person.

One who feels superior to others because of his spiritual diet is a worldly person.

One who abides in the Self is a religious person no matter what the diet.

Just my two paisa.
