ULLadu Narpadu - 5
« on: April 02, 2010, 08:40:50 AM »
ULLadu or ULLa PoruL or Satyam is the only thing that is.  All
meditations on gods like Siva, Devi, Rama and Krishna and others
are only meditation on the ULLa Porul within.  Srimad Bhagavatam
which speaks of Narayana and Krishna's life and exploits, starts as-

Satyam Param dheemahi.
Satyam Param dheemahi.

Srimad Bhagavatam also ends as Satyam Param dheemahi...

The true "I" or Satyam or Atma or Anubhuti is beautifully described
by Muruganar in his Sri Guru Ramana Prasadam.   Robert Butler
has translated some of these verses as under:

The Nature of the Supreme Self:

628.  That which manifests
        as day and night,
        as waking and sleep,
        as the Witness that perceives these things
        Is the true "I" that shines as Pure Consciousness.

630.  That which dwells within all that is,
        that through which awareness itself becomes aware
        that which exists in each thing, as its individual nature,
        Is the true "I" that shines as Pure Consciousness.

632.  That which manifests
        as grace and reality, tapas and Sivam
        as spiritual practice and attainment,
        Is the true "I" that shines as Pure Consciousness.

633.  That which manifests
        as chakra and akshara, as mantra and tantra*
        as bhavanas and as the chakras' presiding Deity.
        Is the true "I" that shines as Pure Consciousness.

        (*All upasana is only an aid to realization)

634.  That which manifests in the senses' subtlety
        as the supreme consciousness within the Heart,
        that which is the Source of both bondage and liberation,
        Is the true "I" that shines as Pure Consciousness.   
           
636.  That which is the transcendental state of union
        with the all-pervading supreme,
        that shines within the Heart as that which is,
        in which there is no saying "I am this" or "I am that"
        Is the true "I" that shines as Pure Consciousness.

637.  That reality, our very nature,
        the infinite continuum, all pervading,
        yet free of any objective awareness of 'this' or 'that',
        in which there is nohting that is not itself,
        Is the true "I" that shines as Pure Consciousness.

638.   Since it embraces all things without differentiation
         the nature of the Self - the sweet nectar of Brahman -
         is the all-pervading total fulness of the absolute
         Praise to the true "I" that excels as Pure Consciousness.
