ULLadu Narpadu - 117
« on: May 22, 2010, 10:56:57 AM »

Sri Lakshamana Sarma continues in his work:-

Verse 241:  How can the seeing of a form of the Formless One
be a true vision?  And how can the vision as non-self, of Him that
is the Self, be a true vision? 

Verse 242:  All form is mental, and hence the form of the spectacle
is inside the spectator, it is the "Truth of the Seer", that should be
sought, since that is the Truth of the Supreme Being.

Verse 243:  "The man who, by the practice of devotion sees God
as someone other than himself, sees only a mental form" -- such
is utterance of the Most Holy One on this point.

Verse 244:  That which remains over the annihilation of he would-
be seer, by the quest of the Truth of the seer, is itself the Truth
of the Self and also the Truth of the Supreme Being.

Verse 245:  That state, in which the mind, called the soul, is swallowed up and has become One with Him, is itself both the True Vision of the Self and the right vision of God, so says the Holy
Guru, Bhagavan Ramana.

Verse 246:  Revelation prescribes that the aspirant should meditate on Him, as one's own Self.  The Revelation, styles as beasts, those who meditate on Him, as not the Self.

Verse 247:  Bhagavan Vasishta has said that he that worships
God as not-Self, turning away from the real god, who is the Self,
is like one that goes about seeking a precious stone, throwing away the gem named Kaustubha already in hand!  (Yoga Vasishtam)

Verse 251:  Also the Most Holy One has shown that, like the man
that pursues darkness, light in hand, the devotee, who meditates
on God as separate does not reach God, (so long as he has got this false notion).

(This is from Sri Arunachala Ashtakam, Verse 4)

Verse 252:  Since the better devotee approaches God as the Self,
knowing that the notion of difference due to the ego is false, therefore, for this aspirant for deliverance, the annihilation of the ego will be accomplished quickly.

Arunachala Siva.
