Verses of Ramana Maharshi
« on: February 14, 2010, 04:18:52 PM »
Enquiring within "Who is the Seer?" I saw the seer disappearing and
That alone which stands for ever.
No thought arose to say "I saw".
How then could the thought arise to say "I did not see?"
Who has the power to explain all this n words,
when even You (as Dakshinamurthy) conveyed this of yore in silence only?
And in order to reveal in silence, You state transcendent, now You stand here,
a Hill resplendent soaring to the sky.

(Arunachala Ashtakam Verse 2)
॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.
~ Vasishta

Dear Nagaraj,

Yes. This is the state of non dual consciousness.  The same
feeling, Bhagavan Ramana has expressed in Sri Arunachala
Pancharatnam, Verse 5.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear I,

Yes, I went about reading Arunachala Pancharatna, it conveys the same essence and it goes like this:

He who, with Heart to you surrendered,
Beholds for ever you alone,
Sees all things as forms of you
And loves and serves them as none other
Than the Self, O Aruna Hill,
Triumphs because he is immersed
In you whose being is pure bliss.

Salutations to Sri Ramana
॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥

The Self that is Awareness, that alone is true. The
knowledge which is various is ignorance. And even
ignorance, which is false, cannot exist apart from the Self.
False are the many jewels, for apart from gold, which alone
is true, they cannot exist.

(Ulladu Naarpadu, Verse 13)
॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.

When scriptures speak of ‘seeing the Self’ and ‘seeing God’,
what is the truth they mean? How to see the Self? As the
Self is one without a second, it is impossible to see it. How
to see God? To see Him is to be consumed by Him.

(Ulladu Naarpadu 21)
॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.
~ Vasishta
