Today is Lucy Ma's liberation day.  She merged in Bhagavan's feet, on this day.
When she was ill, her daughter came to serve the mother and she remained in
Sri Ramanasramam, from that day, even though her mother passed away.

Arunachala Siva.

Ardra Darsanam-2117:

Today is Ardhra Darsam, being Margazhi, Tiruvdirai star day.

It is observed in all Nataraja Shrines. It is mainly observed in Chidabaram
Nataraja Temple, and all Nataraja temples.

In the Asramam, there is Nataraja Statue in Mother's Temple and it is observed
there too, right in the early morning at about 4.30 am.  We observed that
programme once  during our visit to Asramam.

***

மார்கழியில் வரும் திருவாதிரை நட்சத்திர நாள், ஒரு புண்ணிய தினம் என்றும், அன்றைய தினம் ஆருத்ரா என்றும் அழைக்கப்படுகிறது.

அன்றைய தினத்தில், எல்லா சிவ ஆலயங்களிலும் சிறப்பு அபிஷேக ஆராதனைகள் நடைபெறும். முக்கியமாக முதல் நாள் இரவு சிவ ஆலயங்களிலும் விடிய விடிய பூஜைகள் நடத்தப்பட்டு, அதனைத்தொடர்ந்து, அதிகாலையில் எல்லா சிவ ஆலயங்களிலும் நடராஜ பெருமானுக்கு 18 வகையான சிறப்பு அபிஷேகங்கள் நடத்தப்பட்டுச் சிறப்பு பூஜைகள் நடைபெறும்.

ஆடல்வல்லானாகிய நடராஜப்பெருமானுக்கு ஒரு ஆண்டில் ஆறுமுறை அபிஷேகம் செய்யவேண்டும் என்று ஆகமவிதிகள் கூறுகின்றன. மூன்றுமுறை திதியிலும், மூன்றுமுறை நட்சத்திர நாளிலும் அபிஷேகங்கள் நடக்கின்றன. இதில் மார்கழி திருவாதிரையே மிகச்சிறப்பானது என்று கூறப்படுகிறது.

Arunachala Siva.

Today i.e 12 Jan 2017 is the Birthday of Swami Vivekananda and sharing a quote from him :"Our first duty is not to hate ourselves, because to advance we must have faith in ourselves first and then in God. Those who have no faith in themselves can never have faith in God."- Swami Vivekananda .

Do you believe in that Infinite, good Providence working in and through you?
If you believe that this Omnipresent One is present in every atom, is through and through, Ota-Prota,
 as the Sanskrit word goes, penetrating your body, mind and soul, how can you lose heart?


We are the sons of Light and children of God.
Glory unto the Lord, we will succeed.
The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature.
Have faith in yourselves!

Swami Vivekananda

When the "spirit" of sadhana is lacking,the "routine" of sadhana is like a corpse.You may be a very busy sadhaka, but you may be lacking the "spirit" of sadhana. Draw a distinction between the "spirit" of sadhana from the "routine" of it. Whatever be the number of times you may roll the beads,if the spirit of it is lacking,you will gain nothing.- Swami Krishnananda, Divine Life Society

Saint Tayumanavar - ONE THOUGHT.  (1/9):


To be thinking not any thought
Is transcendental meditation they say.
That is the state of grace.
Grace comes from meditation.
It is the state of absence of self-consciousness.

The state of Grace kindles Bliss.
The nature of Bliss is Bliss itself.
Beyond it is nothing.
Only those who have attained that Bliss
Have become birth-less.

All the rest is known
As wife, children, relations
And other tainted attachments.
In a word,
They are but expressions of desire.

Arunachala Siva.

God's name destroys sin - Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa

NEIGHBOUR: Sir, we are sinners. What will happen to us?
MASTER Ramakrishna Paramahamsa : All the sins of the body flyaway if one chants the name of God and sings His glories. The birds of sin dwell in the tree of the body. Singing the name of God is like clapping your hands. As, at a clap of the hands, the birds in the tree flyaway, so do our sins disappear at the chanting of God's name and glories.
Again, you find that the water of a reservoir dug in a meadow is evaporated by the heat of the sun. Likewise, the water of the reservoir of sin is dried up by the singing of the name and glories of God.
You must practise it every day. The other day, at the circus, I saw a horse running at top speed, with an Englishwoman standing on one foot on its back. How much she must have practised to acquire that skill!
Weep at least once to see God.
These, then, are the two means: practice and passionate attachment to God, that is to say, restlessness of the soul to see Him.
However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them? - Buddha
