verse from Ulladhu Naarpadhu, Anubandham
« on: February 17, 2010, 09:20:11 AM »
“The mere enquiry ‘To whom are these defect: karmas (actions), vibhakti (lack of devotion), viyoga (disunion) and ajnana (ignorance) ?’ is itself
karma, bhakti, yoga and jnana ! (How ?) When thus enquired, ‘I’ is (found to be) non-existent, (and hence) these defects are (also found to be)
ever non-existent. The truth is, (then revealed) that we ever remain as (the defectless) Self!”

Ulladhu Narpadhu – Anubandham’, verse 14

Salutations to Sri Ramana
॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.
~ Vasishta

The mind verily likes questions such as 'how?' and especially 'why?'.

The questions such as 'what?' and 'who?' are the killers of the mind.

Those questions takes one deeper into the matter and lets transcend the matter of any kind.

How and Why are the questions of Science.  They are still finding out
the God's particle or the Boson, in a large laboratory (with 10,000 astro-
physicists) and Stephen Hawking has already predicted that they can never
find out the God's particle, the first principle, from which the universe
was formed.  Atma Jnanis ask the questions Who and to whom? and they
have found out God himself, leave alone his first particle, which is a myth
and imagination of the mind when one wakes up in the morning.

Incidentally, this large laboratory, has got on its front poral a huge metal
icon of Nataraja, the dancing God of Hindus.  The scientists in that
laboratory which is near the French-Swiss border, pray to Nataraja every
morning for two minutes, before starting their work! Nataraja should
be laughing within himself at this prayer!

Arunachala Siva.
