Sayings from Bhagavan
« on: February 19, 2010, 08:59:31 AM »
These are few sayings as recorded by Sri. CV Subramaniya Aiyer in 1918

1. Turn the mind inward and rest in your own Self.

2. Mind is the cause of bondage.

3. Give up one thing after another and rest in peace.

4. What we get, we shall lose, so desire not.

5. There are two kinds of meditation. The first is to be practised by advanced aspirants — nirguna dhyana — where one seeks to know the Meditator himself. The second kind is to be practised by those less advanced — a some what round about course — saguna dhyana — where the meditator, meditation and the object of meditation get merged ultimately into one.

6. When I come to know that I was never born, I shall never die. Death is for one who is born. I was never born. I have no body and so I shall never die. I am everywhere; where am I to go and where am I to come?

7. When a man’s mind is dead, he will not die again.

8. Attain the sushupti (state of sleep) in the jagrat (waking) state, and you become a jnani.

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

Dear Nagaraj,

Excellent.  Saint Tayumanavar has sung:  Thoongamal thoongi sukam
peruvathu ekkalam?  When is the time, I shall sleep without sleeping
and attain the bliss (Sukam).

Arunachala Siva.
