ULLadu Narpadu (Sad Darsanam)
« on: March 23, 2010, 10:53:57 AM »
ULLadu Narpadu (Sad Darsanam) Verses 23 to 29 describe the Sadhanam or the ways
and means of self enquiry and preliminary investigations for it.  First, about deep
sleep state, then the form and formelssness, then about ego, and the source of ego,
how to find the non existent ego and finally about self enquiry without uttering through
lips.

The Verse 30 says about Sadhyam, the goal.

And the verse 31 about the state of realization. 

The Verse 32 speaks about Mahavakyam, Tatvam asi.  This Verse 32 is the hrudaya
sthanam, the Heart Centre, of the work.

That which connects the body/mind  and the Self is the chit-jada kranthi, the knot.

Bhagavan wiling, I propose to write individually about these ten verses soon.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear paul,

Thank you.  It will not be merely English translation, but some anecdotes here and there.
But I shall follow Tamil version, since I am more at home with this.

Arunachala Siva.
