1) Those who have one-pointed devotion towards God,like the magnetic needle [of a ship’s compass] which always stands facing towards the north, will never be perplexed and go astray in the ocean of attachment of this world.

2) If one fixes one’s mind firmly on that pure Supreme Reality which pervades all activities, one will not be affected by any number of activities that are done.

Sadhu Om: Just as the cinema screen, which is the base pervading all the pictures, is not burnt by a picture of fire or drenched by a picture of a flood, so Self, the Supreme Reality which is the base pervading all activities, is not affected by any number of activities.Therefore, since the one who attends to Self remains as Self itself,he is not affected by any number of activities he may appear to be doing.

3) Among all the rice grains, only those which move here and there will be crushed by the hand-mill, while those which do not move away from the foot of the axle will not be crushed.

Michael James: Likewise, among all the people in the world, only those who stray into worldly desires, leaving the thought of the Feet of God, will be ruined by maya, while those who do not leave His Feet will not be so ruined.

Guru Vachaka Kovai is the biggest collection of Bhagavan’s spoken teachings that was thoroughly checked and revised by him during his lifetime. As such it has a unique place in the Ramana literature.
