ULLadu Narpadu - 111
« on: May 20, 2010, 05:06:43 PM »

Muruganar continues in his Padamalai:

Verse 987:  What is to come to you, will automatically come. What
is not, will not come.  [Therefore], remain in your blissful nature state.

Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi, Talk NO. 426 also covers this point:

Question:  Has the man any free will or is everything in his life
pre-destined and pre-ordained?

Bhagavan:  Free will holds the field in association with individuality.
As long as the individuality lasts, there is free will.  All the sastras
are based on this fact, and they advise directing the free will in
the right channel. 

Find out to whom free will or destiny matters.  Abide in it.  Then these two are transcended.  This is the only purpose of discussing
these questions.  To whom do these questions arise?  Find out and
be at peace.

Verse 921:  The steadfast Jnani will completely consume, without
any fear, the prarabdha, that began with the present body.

Verse 922:  In the blissful experience of Jnana, the Self, those
prarabdha experiences will not cling to the "I".

Guru Vachaka Kovai, Verse 698, comments of Muruganar say:

"Prarabdha, which like a whirlwind, relentlessly agitates and spins
the mind, that has shrunk through dehatma buddhi, cannot even
slightly stir the adjuncts-free mind that shines as the extremely
clear space of Pure Consciousness, when the ego-impurity is destroyed by self enquiry.

Further comments of Muruganar:  Since a mind shining as the Infinite Expanse of Consciousness is perfect, there is no agitation.

{For a Jnani who is a limitless ocean of Sat-Chit-Ananda, the world
and its activities are like the waves at it shore. [Ashottaram,
Invocatory Verse] }

Verse 2070:  Nothing happens except that which is divinely ordained.  Consequently, it is pointless for people, who want the world to be different, to experience anxiety and to be debilitated
by distress.

Guru Vachaka Kovai, Verse 1191, Comments of Muruganar say:
No one can do anything that is opposed to the ordinance of the
Supreme Lord who possesses unlimited power and who can do anything.  Therefore, to end the anxiety of the deceptive mind,
which engenders an evil discontent, the proper course is to remain
under the spell of supreme consciousness, which arises from meditating on the divine feet, with the mischief of the ego completely subdued.


Coming to Michael James, he has no special comments about the
ULLadu Narpadu, Verse 19.  Guru Vachaka Kovai, apart from what
is interleaved here, does not have any other specific poems on the
content of the Verse 19, of ULLadu Narpadu.  We shall see only
what Lakshmana Sarma says in Sri Ramana Paravidoyopanishad,
and then close the comments on Verse 19:

Arunachala Siva.
