Whichever method one follows, that method is encouraged by the Sages.
For it leads to the goal like any other method.

If he does not think himself the doer
there is no action for him.

Know the present. Not knowing that,
why do you worry about other times?

Knowledge without practice accompanying it is
superior to practice without knowledge.

Practice with knowledge is superior to
knowledge without practice accompanying it.

action without desire - is superior to
knowledge with practice.

It is only due to the delusion which is caused by not learning the
Truth of Self that jivas are suffering. Therefore, always take to the
practice of Jnana the inward enquiry "Who am I that is suffering?"

மதிக்கொளி தமுதம் மதிக்கு ளொளிரு
மதியினை யுள்ளெ மடக்க்கிப் பதியிற்
பதித்திடுத லன்றிப் பதியை மதியான்
மதித்திடுத லெங்ஙன் மதியாய்


Madikkolli Damudam Madikku Llolliru
Madiyinnnai Yulllle Mattakkkip Padiyirr
Padittittuda Lannnrrip Padiyai Madiyaannn
Madittittuta Lengngannn Madiyaay

Except by turning the mind inwards (towards the feeling ‘I am’) and (thereby) sinking (it) in the Lord, who shines within that mind (as its substratum) giving light (the light of consciousness) to the mind, which sees everything (other than itself), how is it possible to know (or to meditate upon) the Lord by the mind? Consider thus.

Note: In this verse Sri Bhagavan clearly reveals the truth that the only means by which one can know God, who is the real Self and who shines within the mind as the pure consciousness ‘I am’, is to merge the mind in Him by turning it inwards through the enquiry ‘Who am I?’.


Without turning inwards and merging in the Lord His light that shines within the mind and lends it all its light, how can we know the Light of Lights with the borrowed light of the mind?

Dear Nagaraj,

Nice. Sri Bhagavan quotes from Bhagavad Gita VI-25: in Talks No.  378:

By slow approaches let him come
  to rest, with patient, rock poised Will;
His mind at home in Selfhood pure
  Let him create no thought at all.

Arunachala Siva.

Mere book knowledge about self-enquiry, even though learnt from clear scriptures, will be a picture-gourd drawn on a sheet of paper, which cannot be used for cooking. The supreme jnana will arise only out of true enquiry in the form of attention towards the reality that exists in the heart.

(Guru Vachaka Kovai, 531)

Dear Nagaraj,

Yes. 'Prayoham' i.e 'putting into practice' is the most important thing.

Arunachala Siva.

It is important for one who is established in his Self (atma nista) to see that he does not swerve in the least from this absorption.

By swerving from his true nature he may see before him bright effulgences, etc., or hear (unusual) sounds or regard as real the visions of gods appearing within or outside himself. He should not be deceived by these and forget himself.

Dear Nagaraj,

Yes. Not only in intense devotion but also in Yoga practices, all kinds of sound/taste experiences would come forth.
One should not be deceived by them. Saint Manikkavachagar says in one of his verses about this.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Nagaraj,

These are the verses that Manikkavachagar explains various sounds etc.,


சொல்லிய லாதெழு தூமணி யோசை சுவைதரு மாகாதே
துண்ணென என்னுளம் மன்னியசோதி தொடர்ந்தெழு மாகாதே
பல்லியல் பாயப் பரப்பற வந்த பராபர மாகாதே
பண்டறி யாதப ரானுப வங்கள் பரந்தெழு மாகாதே
வில்லியல் நன்னுத லார்மயல் இன்று விளைந்திடு மாகாதே
விண்ணவரும் அறியாத விழுப்பொருள் இப்பொரு ளாகாதே
எல்லையி லாதன எண்குண மானவை எய்திடு மாகாதே
இந்து சிகாமணி எங்களை ஆள எழுந்திரு ளப் பெறிலே. 641

சங்கு திரண்டு முரன்றெழும் ஓசை தழைப்பன ஆகாதே
சாதிவி டாதகுணங்கள் நம்மோடு சலித்திடு மாகாதே
அங்கிது நன்றிது நன்றெனு மாயை அடங்கிடு மாகாதே
ஆசைஎலாம் அடியாரடியோய் எனும் அத்தனை யாகாதே
செங்கயல் ஒண்கண்மடந்தையர் சிந்தை திளைப்பன ஆகாதே
சீரடியார்கள் சிவானுப வங்கள் தெரித்திடு மாகாதே
எங்கும் நிறைந்தமு தூறு பரஞ்சுடர் எய்துவ தாகாதே
ஈறறி யாமறை யோன் எனைஆள எழுந்தரு ளப் பெறிலே. 642

திருச்சிற்றம்பலம்


This comes under Tirupadai Atchi, the Rule of the Holy Army in Tiruvachakam.

Arunachala Siva.

Ahimsa (non violence) stands foremost in the code of discipline for the yogis.
