« on: August 28, 2008, 06:22:32 PM »
Dear Friends,
           Have any of you got a chance to look at this link ? It includes some of the most renowned modern day saints:
The following are some of the greats:
Swami Suddhananda
Nannagaru
Sri Ganeshan
Swami Dayananda Sarswathi
Sri Ramesh Balsaker

And they are discussing about Sri Ramana maharshi. Please dont miss Swami suddhananda's description --- thats the most exceptional.

Love!
Silence

Dear all,
          All learned people(Pundits)are not awakened ones.If one is awakened he will have the capacity to confer self-knowledge to others.
          Majority of the learned people have no mental peace for themselves and how can they help others in attaining mental peace.

DEAR SIR,

WHAT YOU SAID IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT.

FIRST AND FOREMOST IS SELF CONTENTMENT.

LIKE RAMANA MAHARSHI HE IS TOTALLY PURE AND IMMACULATE.
SELF CONTENDED.
NEVER ASKED ANYBODY FOR ANYTHING.
BEYOND ALL DOUBTS.

HE NEVER PREACHED ANYTHING;  AS HE IS EVER AS HIMSELF REMAINED IN SELF BEYOND BODY.
HE IS TOTALLY PRACTICAL.

HE IS TEACHING IN SILENCE AS HE IS FOREVER. SILENCE IS THE UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE. SILENCE IS A UNINTERRUPTED SPEACH IN ALL LANGUAGES AT ALL TIMES. SO SILENCE IS THE SUPREME TEACHING AND IT IS GODS LANGUAGE BEYOND DOUBT.

THOSE WHO HAVE HIS GRACE CAN FEEL IT EVEN NOW AND EVEN FOREVER; ONLY THING IS THAT ONE HAS TO ELEVATE HIMSELF TO THAT LEVEL IN SPIRITUALITY.

HE IS IMPARTIAL; KING OF POORS AND BEGGER TO THE LEARNED ONES WITHOUT PRACTISE AND TO TO THE ARROGANT RICHES.

HE IS EVER ALIVE AS BEFORE. HE IS EVERY WHERE. NO TIME FOR HIM.

THE ONE WON HIMSELF IS THE WINNER OF ALL. HE IS PERFECT EXAMPLE.

HIS WHOLE LIFE IS EXAMPLARY TO THIS WORLD. TOTALLY PRACTICAL.

NO WORDS TO EXPRESS ABOUT HIM. THE SUITABLE THING TO EXPRESS IS HIS OWN WAY OF SILENCE ALONE.

SIVA SIVA

Dear sankar,
                Your observations on Bhagawan are raional,devotional  and useful to all.Bhagawan devoted all his time in the practical aspect of
self-enquiry by making unadulterated power of the self(saktipath)available to devotees 24hours a day for 54yrs.He helped the devotees to get posited in the self through his power of silence rather than mere teaching.Even now he is doing the same.His sea of consciousness is very much available,
we have to utilise the opportunity sincerely without getting lost in learning sastras in the name of spiritual practice.

Dear Raju,  All self realized people like Bhagavan Ramana, are knowledgeable, because the Self confers all the knowledge.
"I lisped in numbers, because numbers came to me!" -
Alexander Pope.  But all book-learned people are not self
realized, because, Self is beyond books.  As Bhagavan said
in Who am I?, "at one stage on one has to unlearn all that
is learnt."

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai,
                  What i wrote is not to contradict the persons you have mentioned as realised.I wrote the need to discriminate pundits from saints.

Dear skrudai,  A jnani's true state can be understood in two ways:
one, if you are also a jnani.  the second, if you get an immense
peace, the peace that passeth understanding in his presence.  The
second experience, all Bhagavan's devotees had had.

A pundit is known through your astonishment of his knowledge
but without getting any peace, from him.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear srkudai, yes that man may get peace, but that is not peace
that passeth understanding, that is, indescribable, permanent.

Arunachala Siva.
