ULLadu Narpadu - 131
« on: May 24, 2010, 03:59:37 PM »

Talks No. 26 reads as under:

Question:  How shall we discover the nature of he mind i.e.
its ultimate cause, or the noumenon of which it is a manifestation?

Bhagavan:  Arranging thoughts in the order of value, the "I" thought
is the all-important thought.  Personality-idea or thought is also the root or the stem of all other thoughts, since each idea or thought arises only as someone's thought, and is not known to exist independently of the ego.  The ego therefore exhibits thought-activity.  The second and third persons do not appear except to the
first person.  Therefore, they arise only after the first person appears, so all the three persons seem to rise and sink together.
Trace, then, the ultimate cause or "I" or personality.

Verse 2906: For those who do not realize their real nature as the
unchanging supreme reality, the whirling [of their minds] will not be stilled.

Verse 1472:  Do not use your mind to inquire in the heart about
anything other than your own real nature.

Verse 1953:  If mind-consciousness subsides into the source from which it arose, the experience of being, absolute perfection, will unite with you, here and now.

Verse 716:  A mature mind that has managed to establish firmly in the extremely subtle state of pure being will not get enmeshed
in the tangle of the world.

Verse 1644:  When mind exists holding onto the reality alone,
which is consciousness, one's own nature, this constitutes true life.           

Verse 1458:  The delusion-filled mind has caused samsara to merge
with you.  It will cease when the mind is completely destroyed.

Verse 2329:  Upon the destruction of the mind, the appearance of the world that adheres to you in the state of harmful delusion will
stand illustrious as pure consciousness.

Verse 1189: Even the gods in the heaven cannot stir those deeply
peaceful ones who shine, having killed their minds.

Talks No. 195 reads as under:

Bhagavan:  It is the mind that birth and death, pleasure and pain,
in short, the ego and the world exist.  If the mind is destroyed
all these are destroyed too.  Note that it should be annihilated,
not just made latent.  For the mind, is dormant in sleep.  It does
not know anything.  Still, on waking up, you are as you were before.
There is no end of grief.  But if the mind be destroyed, the grief
will have no background and will disappear along with mind.

Verse 1287:  The mind that has died in pure consciousness, mere being, will surge forth, resurrecting itself as Bhuma, [all pervasive reality].

Verse 3003:  Only when everything shines as consciousness alone can the mind impurity be said to have perished.

Verse 1190:  True Jnana, the experience of Sivam, that rises in a dead mind, will, extending to the very heavens, leap and surpass everything. 

Arunachala Siva.
