Dear Nagaraj,

The Tamizh poem from Manikkavachagar says:

With the dark eyes of the women, all my five senses are moving here and there like a tree close on the waters of a river,
(the river floods make the tree's roots get damaged due to floods). You have to save me. O Lord of Tiruvarur, O the One staying
in Uttarakosa Mangai, the concorporate of Uma with gold studded blouse around her breasts, O save me and make me grow
fit for your Abode!

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Nagaraj,

Nice poem. Muruga is called six faced Siva. Arunagiri Nathar calls him as Siva only in many of his songs. Kripananda Variyar used
to say: There is no God so quick in conferring benefits in kali yuga as dried jinger is the cure for many ailments.

Arunachala Siva.

when we discern that the ones that cause any form of hurt to us, are just an instrument in the hands of God, so as to enable us to endure our prArabdha karmA, then all differences cease, good and bad are alike, love and hate are alike. The knot is broken. No hurt feelings will emanate from within anymore. Compassion fills the heart for the ones that are causing any form of hurt.

Food for contemplation:

It is said, what we are, is because of our past karmA! Tracing back, how did the first karmA originate? :)

All this is just lIlA!

Wherever we go, the nature is the same, and we tend to forget it.

I muse for myself, it is wise only to talk about Ramana and his teachings alone here!

Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.

Oh God,
I don't like your separation, but
your grace is so great that you
show yourself in separation as well
bewilderment nut head are Thou!

I don't like pain of separation, but
your grace is so great that you
make even pain of separation,
sweetness nectar unparalleled
bewilderment nut head are Thou!

Dear Nagaraj,

See this Manikkavachagar' verse in Anandamamalai, tiruvachakam, 50.5: 

தாயாய் முலையைத் தருவானே தாரா தொழிந்தாற் சவலையாய்
நாயேன் கழிந்து போவேனோ நம்பி யினித்தான் நல்குதியே
தாயே யென்றுன் தாளடைந்தேன் தயாநீ என்பால் இல்லையே
நாயேன் அடிமை உடனாக ஆண்டாய் நான்தான் வேண்டாவோ. 647

Arunachala Siva.

There are two types of people:

Those who come into a room and say, "Well, here I am!", and

those who say, "Ah, there you are".
