ULLadu Narpadu - 147

Muruganar continues in his Padamalai:-

Verse 1606:  The feeling of living in the body and the world is
what destroys the life of firm Swarupam, the Being-Consciousness.

Verse 690: Taking the body to be 'I' is the error that murders Brahman, that which is merged with you as Atma Swarupam.

Verse 691:  Know the deceitful ego, a consummate impersonator,
as a villainous murderer whose profession is death.

{Though Brahman is essentially indestructible, Bhagavan often
spoke of devotees who "killed" or "murdered" Brahman by not
being aware of it.}

Verse 1014:  Only the ego, the delusion that spreads by identifying
with the insentient upadhi [the body], is bondage.

Verse 2459:  That which should be clearly known is the Self, mere consciousness.  That which should be destroyed is attachment to the body.

Verse 2264: The delusive life of [living in] the body and the world is the product of the 'I' sense that cherishes the body, which is just but a corpse.

Talks No. 383:-

Question:  Is there no dehatma buddhi [I am the body idea] for
the Jnani?  If, for instance, Sri Bhagavan be bitten by an insect,
is there no sensation?

Bhagavan:  There is a sensation and there is also the dehatma buddhi.  The latter is common to both Jnani and ajnani, with the
difference, that ajnani thinks dehaiva Atma [only the body is myself], whereas the Jnani knows all is of Self [Atma mayam sarvam], or all this is Brahman [sarvam khalivdam Brahman].
If there be pain, let it be.  It is also part of the Self.  The Self
is Poorna (perfect).

(Bhagavan Ramana also says this in Verse 7 of Sri Arunachala
Nava Mana Maalai.)

Verse 615:  The same confusion of the mind takes the perception
of the five senses to be real.  This results in an agitation of the
mind that struggles with desires for them.

Verse 2761:  Unless the belief "I am the body" is completely         
destroyed, true knowledge of the one Self is not possible.

Verse 2297:  The disappearance of the I am the body notion,
the wrong understanding that causes infatuation, is the experience of the Atma Swarupam.

Verse 1221:  In the state wherein the ego, the I am the body delusion, has ceased, both yoga and bhoga [enjoyment], without
becoming two merge together as one.

Muruganar adds as comments to Verse 62 of Guru Vachaka Kovai,
as under:

This verse explains the little known fact that Sahaja state is
experienced even in external peceptions.  For him who truly
knows sense perceptions to be his own Self, the world is not an
obstacle.  He experiences and enjoys his own Self in all perceptions and rejoices identically both internally and externally, without
even a trace of the thought of bondage.

(Bhagavan Ramana gives the same idea in Sri Arunachala Pancharatnam, Verse 5.)

Verse 1042:  If you attain perfect mastery of internal renunication, external renunciation will have no importance. 

(Bhagavan Ramana explains this in Talks No. 404 through
King Sikhidvaja and Chudala's story.)

Arunachala Siva.
