There is only One for Him, but people see two and three
« on: February 17, 2010, 11:34:22 AM »
Once Ra. Ganapati, a good spiritual writer in Tamil said V. Ganesan, that
for Bhagavan Ramana says that Chapter III, Verse 3 of Srimad Bhagavad
Gita refers only to Jnana, whereas all scholars had expressed that it speaks
about Bhakti Marga, the path of devotion.  When asked Bhagavan Ramana
said: I see only Jnana Jyoti and not bhakti.  Similarly for Sad Darsanam,
Kavyakanta had written the verses only from the point of view of a Saakta,
sakti worshipper, whereas Lakshmana Sarma had written them as
expressing Jnana marga only.  When someone (I think Balarama Reddy) asked about it, Bhagavan Ramana smiled and kept silent.  He sees only
One whereas people see it as two and three. 

There are interpretations for Tiruvachakam, from various scholars in
the light of Jnana, Siva Raja Yoga and Bhakti.  It gives room for such
variety.  But the saint poet wrote IT AS IT IS.

Arunachala Siva.
