Hail,Hail Ramana Sadguru,Royal Ramana Sadguru!
« on: August 16, 2010, 09:17:18 AM »
   Om Cinmudrine Namah

 "That, which is called Brahman, the supreme reality,cannot be imparted to others by words. It can only be taught
  by Mouna,unqualified silence. Though Bhagwan graciously wrote explanatory texts and spoke to all who were
  sincere in their enquiries , it was the silent, powerful presence of Sri Bhagwan that was His supreme teaching".

                                                                                                  Mountain Path,July-October, 2006 

 From 'Forty Verses In Adoration Of Sri Ramana' by Sri Ganpati Muni

 Verse I8

 "Now, when righteousness has been destroyed,when the three worlds are in turmoil of evil, when
 people vainly bandy about knowledge in terms of words, and when the very existence of the Supreme Lord, the
 Father, is in vacillation and doubt, who else but you could be the refuge of good people,
 O Peacock borne, in the mask of man!"

 Verse 32,

 "Striking at the 'I-thought' of these human beasts, you cook them and hand them over to the Supreme Siva
  as food".

 Verse 34,

 "Plunging again and again into the ocean of births and deaths, at long last, thoroughly fatigued , we,
  thy devotees, have, now taken shelter under the haven of the pair of thy lotus feet.
  O Ramana, Our Lord merciful, the abode of all auspiciousness, protect us with thy sidelong glances, moist with
  Compassion".


 Thank You.

                                                                                                                 Anil

 From Spiritual Instruction, Ch.-2 (Abhyasa)

 Devotee:      Can this Path of Enquiry be followed by all aspirants?
 Sri Bhagwan: This is suitable only for ripe souls. The rest should follow different methods according to the state of
                    their minds.
 Devotee:       What are the other methods?
 Sri Bhagwan:  They are Stuti, Japa, Dhyana, Yoga, Jnana, etc.

  However In the Later Period :-

 From Talk 322

 A cultured lady, daughter of a well-known solicitor of Madras asked: What should one do in order to remain free 
 from thoughts as advised by you? Is it only the enquiry "Who am I?"
 Sri Bhagwan : Only to remain still. Do it and see.
 D.               : It is impossible.
 Sri Bhagwan  : Exactly. For the same reason the enquiry "Who am I ?" is advised.

  Thus in later period,Sri Bhagwan gives sanction and enjoins to practice Self-enquiry to whoever approached Him
  sincerely. In the ancient time, Self-enqury of traditional or pure Jnana marga was taught by the Guru in
  hermitage and followed by sanyasins (hermits) in silent meditation in secluded places like forests etc.

 Sri Bhagwan, knowing that this ancient path of Self-enquiry is not appropriate for the present dark and
  materialistic age,carved out the Path Of Vichara,a new path, adapted  to the needs of the present age.
 Only to those who could not take up Self-enquiry straight away that He advised Surrender and other methods
  most suited to him. But He gave sadhana of Vichara to almost all sincere devotees to be followed everywhere
 with a fixed time of meditation every day and constantly remembering rest of the day even while working.

 Sri Bhagwan has Himself emphasised  that any sadhana as well as mantras can be efficacious only when they are
 enjoined by the Guru.

 But then how it can be understood that Sri Bhagwan openly explained and endorsed  Vichara in general and
 exhorted His Devotees to practice it.

 The Explanation:-

 Lord Arunachala Himself assumed the role of the Sadguru of the Dark Age on the Earth.He is the Authority
 and He gave Vichara the Sanction and made It accessible to all whoever turned to Him in this spiritually dark
 age.

 And we all find It today potent and available through His Grace. 

 Thank you.

                                                                                     Anil

  Hearing of the Guru's Words and intellectual understanding of His Teaching is the first step
  and of great and vital importance when one wishes deeply to pursue  and tread a spiritual
  path and sadhana for Self Realisation.But after wards, no amount of intellectual deliberation
  and poetic and prosaic elaboration and exultation can lead us any where except in a dark
  bottomless pit.Moreover, we had been doing exactly that before we came to
  Bhagwan Sri Ramana.

  But now that we have come to Him by His Grace, and are all of us even experiencing It,
  why waste the Opportunity that comes to one only after auspicious actions of many past births
  fructify.

 Unwavering Faith in the Guru and His Teaching, Contemplating always deeply on His Words
 and Sayings,and steadfast adherence and practice of Self-enquiry as taught by Him
 alone can take us from the darkness to the Light and from ignorance and knowledge
 to that which is beyond both knowledge and ignorance and which is "I am".
