Message from Srkudai
« on: April 21, 2012, 11:53:18 AM »
Dear friends,

Udai wanted to convey his message to you all here. I reproduce it as below -

Quote
Friends,
            :) All things, whether good or bad, will come to an end one day. So has it happened with my membership in the Ramana Maharshi Forum. It was a tough decision to make [Ego is not at all happy to do it], but I decided that I no more am a part of the group. I felt a few times that the ideas I was presenting were really disturbing the members. That was not supposed to be their intent. I was there to share some vision; I could see that the purpose was no more being met and hence withdrew from the forum.
 
Your friendship in the forum and all the wonderful learnings ... they will remain with me for the rest of my life. Some of the learnings will definitely guide me in moments of trails and turmoils in my life. I am glad I was with the group and now I leave the group with a sense of happiness.
 
Thanks a lot to you all for being with me and helping me in my spiritual journey.
Please convey this to all the forum members if possible.

I am sorry to read that. Sri Udai was (is) one of the most active and competent members in this forum, helping everyone. This forum will not be the same without him. But if it is his and Lord's Will so be it. I really believe he will return one day. From what I have read I suppose some of our responses to him has hurted his feelings. If some of my responses and questions has offended him in some way I ask him for forgiveness. I wish him all the best with all my heart.

we all joined this forum to shed our ego and it is really sad that for few this forum is no longer helping regarding this by our daily discussions.

Udai garu is one of the most intellectual devotee of bhagavan ramana and surely this forum lost one jewel.

I also hope he joins back again as the 3 gunas change in everyone.

Udai/friends,
All these interactions are 'incidental' only.I have found that all members here have utmost respect for each and all and certainly no one is disturbed.Differences in approach will always be there and these add to our learning
I always tell 'friends' that the only way to stay connected with one  another is to stay connected with self or god.All other interactions ,Relationships are incidental;they are here this moment and gone the next.
I am sure that whatever you have decided is well considered and you will be happy with that.I am sure that you will make your presence here when you feel like it.Who knows how long the rest of us are going to continue here anyway!
Udai,I have posted a movie on thAkur and swamiji in Ramana's thread on Bhajans,Documentary,etc thread.I am sure you will enjoy this movie.
I respect your views and I agree that a sincere and devoted study of scriptures is a great help.I also understand that there are other approaches equally valid and more suitable for the vast majority of seekers.
Friend,Wish you the very Best.
Namaskar.

Very true, Sri Ravi. We should bless even these moments when we are disturbed, hurted or even humiliated because this gives us opportunity to temper our ego. Unfortunately very often we are too weak to resist these feelings and we give us up to them. I have undergone moments like Sri Udai many times in my life and I know exactly how it feels but profound observation is needed to discard the real problem for all this. We must learn to swallow up whatever God gives us. It is very difficult but that's the way. Wise men takes whateven the Lord gives them. We should learn from them. Vayragya cannot be achieved when we accept only what is pleasant to the senses but to escape this what makes us feel bad. Yes, it's easy to say but very difficult to achieve.

Dear Sri Udai,

Ego is not happy to do it. Who is it then who is happy to do it? Certainly it is the ego. Besides, how did you reach the conclusion that ideas you presented here were disturbing the members of the forum ? Do you really think that the Revelation and Message contained in the Vedanta and other Scriptures would disturb us ? Are they inconsistent with Sri Bhagwan’s Teaching?
Dear Sri Udai, we are all in love with each other, for we all are devotees of Bhagwan Sri Ramana. Are we not? Only if you would have known how much I love you and respect your views and opinions ! What if I or for that matter any other member differ from you a bit in the approach to the Goal. Even this difference is in the mind only as you are well aware. Please come on, it is all part of the sadhana; please do not allow the emotion to take your best; therefore, for our sake, if not for yourself, kindly do not allow the ego to have its way. WE ALL ARE HIS CHILDREN ONLY.

Thank you,
  Anil

To Shri Srkudai,
We all have differing opinions on many aspects and in a forum our views may unintentionally hurt someone else or vice versa.
But we should take them in our stride.
The beauty of this forum is one bit of advice from someone  may drastically improve our Sadhana.
Regards,
Anand.

Dear all,

I had been to Tiruvanamalai for 4 days from 21st to this evening. I had already conveyed to udai shankar. in reply to his
email to me, on 20th that he (udai shankar) has to reconsider his decisions and start writing in Forum. After all, no body has
got self realized here and the egos are either small or big.  So differences in opinions are bound to occur. One should take it
without getting emotional.

Arunachala Siva.
