A MESSAGE FOR GURU POORNIMA DAY SENT FROM SRI V GANESAN
« on: July 15, 2011, 11:07:31 PM »
Today, is the sacred "Guru Poornima Day" -- Full Moon dedicated
to the "Guru" Principle ! Let us offer our prayers, by laying down
our 'heads' at the Holy Feet of the Guru which are implanted in the
Heart
of every one of us ! May the Guru lead us towards himself -- the
Eternal Peace !

Each one of us, serious , following the sacred foot-prints
of Guru Ramana, should, on this holy day, remind to ourselves what
our Guru spontaneously uttered, after his Awakening to the Radiant Sun
of the Heart, within the Temple of Mother Meenakshi :

"The soul had given up its hold on the body when it renounced the
'I-am-the-body' idea and it was seeking some fresh anchorage ; hence
the frequent visits to the temple and the outpouring of the soul in
tears. This was God's play with the soul. I would stand before
Ishwara -- the Controller of the Universe and of the destinies of
all, the Omniscient and Omnipresent, and sometimes pray for the
descent of His Grace upon me so that my devotion might increase and
become perpetual like that of the sixty-three Saints. More often I
would not pray at all but silently allow the deep within to flow on
and into the deep beyond." -- Sri Bhagavan.

This "inner process" is surely the indicator as how we should also
lead and live our spiritual life. There are no 'short cuts' in this
Path of Wisdom.
"The whole course is to be suffered through", guided Sri Bhagavan when
Arthur Osborne complained that there is suffering in the process of
progress in the Path of Self-Enquiry !

Let us be courageous !

Look at, of how assertively Sri Bhagavan asssures us :

"Guru's Grace is always there. You imagine it is something somewhere
high in the sky, far away and has to descend. It is really inside
you, in your Heart, and the moment you effect subsidence or merger of
the mind into its Source -- the Heart,
the Grace rushes forth -- sprouting as from a spring -- from within
you."

May Sri Bhagavan bless you with good health !

With lots of Love and Regards,

Affectionately Yours,
Ganesan.

Dear prasanth,

I did not read Sri V. Ganesan's message for the Guru Poornima Day.
But I remembered that it was on 15th July.  What, we Ramana devotees
can do, but to pray and intently seek His Grace, without our ego, coming
in between.

Sri Ramanarpanamastu.
