ULLadu Narpadu - 132
« on: May 25, 2010, 11:44:02 AM »

Muruganar continues in his Padamalai about the message of
Verse 22 of ULLadu Narpadu:

Verse 2894: It is impossible for the attribute-free Self to abide
except in the hearts of those in whom the mind, which takes the
forms of three gunas, is dead.

Verse 2579:  He who has renounced the fraudulent mind, has renounced the three gunas.  He has emerged into true vision, after
completely ripping up the cataract of delusion.

Verse 2577:  He who has not seen and embraced the infinite expanse of mauna, will be snared by the threefold gunas and
suffer in the degraded world.

Verse 1073: Only he who has destroyed the guna-mind that wells
up, burying the Swarupa, is a gunatita [the one who has transcended the three gunas].

Verse 2335: The magnificent nature of the life that has transcended
the mind is not disturbed in any way whatsoever, by any of the gunas.

Verse 2375:  Unless the mind is destroyed, it is not possible to attain the fortune of clarity, the life of living in God's grace.

Verse 1292: The means for realizing one's true nature as the Self
is to kill the base mind known as "I".

Talks No. 99 says:

Bhagavan:  Atman is realized with the mruta manas [dead mind],
that is, the mind devoid of thoughts and turned inwards.  Then the
mind sees its own Source, and becomes that [the Self].  It is not
as the subject perceiving an object.

Verse 2148: Know that the one direct path [Vichara] that eliminates
the despicable 'pramada' (forgetfulness of the Self) is to destroy
the mind.

Verse 1759:  Unless the force that activates thought is driven deeply
within and destroyed, it is impossible to enjoy one's own experience of Jnana.

From Crumbs from the Table:-

Bhagavan:  By inquiry, you will drive the thought force deeper,
till it reaches its Source and merges therein.  It is then that you will have the response from within and find that you rest there, destroying all thoughts, once and for all.

Verse 458:  So long as you do not kill the harmful and illusory
association, the prostituting mind, there will be neither bliss nor
good conduct.

Verse 704:  Only when the mind dies through discriminating inquiry,
will it come to shine by itself as Sivoham, 'I am Siva.'

Verse 705. There are no effective means other than vichara to chase out the ego from within you and kill it.

Verse 504:  Only if you enquire and realize the Self in the Heart,
will the bond  that is the obsession for the false, be destroyed.

Talks No. 195:

Question:  How to destroy the mind?

Bhagavan:  Seek the mind. On being sought, it will disappear.

Question:  I do not understand.

Bhagavan:  The mind is only a bundle of thoughts.  The throughs
arise because there is the thinker.  The thinker is the ego.  The ego,
if sought, will vanish automatically.  The ego and the mind are the
same.  The ego is the root-thought from which all other thoughts

Question:  How to sedek the mind?

Bhagavan:  Dive within.  You are now aware that the mind rises
up from within.  So sink within and seek.

Verse 582:  True life will only be attained if you destroy the degraded mind, which shamelessly dotes upon the fleshy body,
by not showing any affection towards it.

Verse 455:  The mind that has died in the experience of Sivam,
which is true Jnana, surpeme consciousness, will of itself shine
as the Supreme Being.

Verse 1164:  That exquisitely subtle mind, which, in dying, has transcended all form, will come to shine as your own Self.
