To search for God ignoring YOU who stand as Being and shine as Awareness is like, looking, lamp in hand, for darkness.

In order to reveal Yourself at last as Being and Awareness, You dwell in various forms in all religions. If still there are
people who fail to see You whose Being is Awareness, they are no better than the blind who do not know the Sun.

O Mighty Hill Aruna, peerless Jewel, stand and shine, One without a second, the Self within my Heart.

Aruna of the Golden Fire.

Arunachala Siva.

Bhagavan Ramana Teachings:

In a village, there lived ten fools, who always stayed together. Once, they had to cross the river. After swimming over to the
other shore , they suddenly and seriously doubted whether anyone had been drowned in the river,. So, they decided to count
and convince themselves that all the ten were alive.  The leader of the fools asked the rest to stand in a row and asked
each one to shout the numbers, like 1,2,3.. When the last man shouted '9", a chill of fear gripped all of them, since they decided
the 'tenth' man was drowned.  Each of them came forward and counted the rest and found the number 'nine' alone was arrived
at! All of them started crying aloud, mourning for the loss of the 'tenth man'.

A wayfarer came, and seeing their plight, understood the real error of the counting man omitting himself! He asked them
all to stand in a line and adopted their own method of each one shouting the number. Now, the the tenth man shouted
'Ten'! All the fools rejoiced that the wayfarer was extraordinarily clever and so, could succeed in bring back the' lost' 'tenth
man alive!  The 'tenth' man was never lost, as such there was no question of bringing him back to life also! Forgetting to
count oneself who counted, was the only error!

The seeker after the Truth -- 'You' -- is thus, all important to make alive every teaching and every teacher. 

V. Ganesan.

Arunachala Siva.

Bhagavan Ramana Teachings:

The Teacher, the Teaching, and 'You' are, therefore, the true Spiritual Trinity.  The importance of the 'You' is not exaggerated
or over dramatized here.  It is not you the body, nor you the identified personality that is being referred to here as 'You'.
The alive principle as 'You', the 'Awareness' alone is pointed out.  Should you not come to know who actually this 'You' is,
apart from identifying yourself with your name and your form as a body?  How to know the 'You'?

Bhagavan Ramana gives you a unique method with which you can know who 'You' really are.

V. Ganesan.

Arunachala Siva.

You are the  final goal the whole world wants to gain.

You are the sight within the eye, yet, without eye, You see.

Who can see You but Yourself, O Arunachala?

Out of my house You enticed me, into the chamber of my heart, You entered, and then, little by little, You revealed the many
mansions of Your house, Your infinite freedom.

Let me, Your prey, surrender and be consumed by You, O Arunachala, and so have peace.

Aruna of the Golden Fire.

Arunachala Siva.

பகவான் ரமணரிடம் சென்ற சில அறிஞர்கள், ? உங்களால் கடவுளைக் காட்டமுடியுமா?? என்று கேட்டனர்.

?நீ யார்?? என்ற கேள்வியை ரமணர் கேட்டார். அதாவது நான் யார்? நான் என்பது என்ன? நான் என்றால் என்ன? என்று பல பொருள்களில் விரியும் கேள்விகளைக் கேட்டார். இதற்கும் கடவுளை அறிவதற்கும் என்ன தொடர்பு என்று ஒவ்வொருவரும் தலையைப் பிய்த்துக்கொள்ளாத குறையாக யோசித்துப் பார்த்தனர். ஒருவருக்கும் அதற்கான விடை புலப்படவில்லை.

ரமண மகரிஷியிடம் தங்களது குழப்பத்தை வெளிப்படுத்தினார்கள்.

ரமணர் புன்னகைத்தவாறே கேட்டார். ? உன்னையே யார் என்று தெரியாத உன்னால், கடவுள் பற்றி எப்படித் தெரிந்துகொள்ள முடியும்??

இப்படி நிறைய கேள்விகள் கேட்டார் ரமணர். கேள்விகள் அற்ற புள்ளியில் கடவுள் தெரிகிறார். அனைத்துக் கேள்விகளுக்கும் விடை கண்ட புள்ளியில் கடவுள் தெரிகிறார் என்பது இதன் பொருள் அல்ல.

அனைத்துக் கேள்விகளும் அற்ற புள்ளி என்பது, அனைத்துக் கேள்விகளும் நமது அறியாமையின் விளைவுதான் என்று உணரும் புள்ளி. மிக முக்கியமான புள்ளி அது. அந்தப் புள்ளியே இறைநிலை என்னும் பிரகாசமாக விரிகிறது.

Keywords: ரமண மகரிஷி, பகவான் ரமணர், கடவுள், கேள்வி பதில், மெய்ஞானம்

Bhagavan Ramana Teachings:

Having elaborately outlined the importance of the Teachings and the Teacher, I present here the Essence of Who am I?
teaching of Sri Ramana Maharshi, the Master of the millennium. Keeping in mind the logical and rational approach of the
readers, the presentation of the Teaching is couched in easily understandable terms, phrases and expressions.  Yet, since
the under current of the Teaching is purely spiritual, one has to delve deeply into it 'to experience' it, rather than merely
intellectually discern it or discuss.  As such the 'practice' is the only key to unlock this spiritual treasure trove of unalloyed
happiness and perennial Bliss, which Sri Ramana Maharshim affirms 'is the birthright' of each one of us!

'God and Guru are really one and identical. He that has earned the Grace of the Guru shall undoubtedly be saved and never
forsaken, just as the prey that has fallen into the jaws of a tiger will never be allowed to escape. Nevertheless, the disciple,
for his part, must unswervingly follow the path shown by the Master' says Bhagavan Ramana.

V. Ganesan.

Arunachala Siva.

Majestic like a mountain rises the splendor of he sin-destroying Guru who holds royal court in the devotee's heart of love.
Ineffable is this mounting bliss.
Those who have known it do not speak.
Those who speak of it has not known.

In the mere presence of the eternal Sun, the loadstone spits out fire, the lotus bud blossoms, the water lily closes, and all
creatures move or rest according to their nature.

A bird which soars in the sky can find no place of rest except the earth. So indeed all  must retrace their path; and when
the jive finds its way back to its source, it will sink and be merged with You, O Arunachala!

Aruna of the Golden Fire.

Bhagavan Ramana Teachings:

Man is of the Divine Essence only.  But he is now steeped in ignorance shutting himself off from the knowledge of this
Divine Essence in him. The Divine vocation in man is ineradicable. It may be covered up for a time but it must well forth
again.

Man's movements are generally directed only outwards since all his senses in his body are turned outwards and turned to
absorb things only from outside. Weaned away from externalities, directing his attention inward, he recognizes the Divine
Nature in him revealing itself in all splendor. Anyone thus turning within is bound to realize the eternal truth within.  No one
is excluded from this Divine Consciousness. Man turning his attention outward by the very act excludes himself from consciously
experiencing it, though every man even in his ignorance is not devoid of experiencing this Divine Consciousness in himself.
Whether he knows it or not every man is filled with with this Pure Consciousness, Pure Awareness. That which clouds such
Awareness from his conscious experience is his habit of clinging to externalities which is expressed in his discontent, frailities,
darkness and fear. Let him look within deeper and longer, and without fail he will notice this so called 'hidden and mysterious'
Self inhabiting his center, the source of his being.

V. Ganesan.

You pilgrims who, without discovering what is within, proceed from place to place, forever hovering bird-like, Siva supreme
is but Awareness centered in the Heart.

Though the silver thread of the Self awareness if often lost amidst the changing light and shadows, still the inner urge to realize
the Self remains and grows stronger and more insistent as grace and search go hand in hand.

All rivers flow towards and merge into the ocean. Likewise all creeds have for their common goal Self loss in Sivahood -
the still, deep ocean of Awareness Bliss.  Know that Arunachala has manifested here as this Holy Hill only for the purpose
of bestowing the supreme state of Sivahood that is enjoyed by the Jnani as the boundless bliss of Liberation.

Bhagavan Ramana Teachings:

Turning within from the externalities and paying full attention to this source, brings about a tremendous change in a man's
life, since for the first time, he recognizes that he is of this Divine Essence.

He understands the scriptural declaration: 'You are That' to mean 'You are yourself That Divine Essence.'  Pure Awareness,
the 'I AM ness in every man, is this Essence of God.

And What is Sivahood?

It is the one Eternal Being ever ours which shines as the plenitude of Bliss unbroken without a trace of false duality.

To enter into that Silence, to melt away in its unfathomable Bliss, is the aim of all who would partake of the hoilest of
sacraments.

Bhagavan Ramana Teachings:

This Reality that exists in every man is Consciousness or Awareness. No man say he does not know it.  By the very cat of his
denying knowledge of it, if he declares its presence!  The marks of the Reality are that it always exists and it is able to exist by
and in itself.  The Awareness in man exists always by and in itself.  Each man has therefore within his grasp this opening to
the Eternal Light within.  Once he has a glimpse of this experience of his True Being within, which glows totally and independently
not needing his efforts or support for its existence -- all his external activities need his effort for their fructification - he will realize
that he had passed into a wonderful state, not depending on his five senses.  This is an experience which he has never  had before.
An experience which was got without the aid of the five senses and that too within himself by himself is unique indeed. That day
of having this vision in oneself is the most starred day, for on that day he is one with Eternity.  Whoever engages in such inward
exploration is not a dreamer, 'he merely antedates today what the multitude of men will have perforce to do tomorrow.'Man
therefore is a spiritual being having this capacity to possess the Wisdom. He breathes this Truth every moment!  He thus
contains a Divine Infinitude within himself.  This infinite Awareness is experienced as a perennial feeling of unalloyed happiness
- the ananda - aspect of the Eternal Truth of Satchidananda.

V. Ganesan.

Arunachala Siva.

THIS Pure bright world of Siva is not a place to go to.  It is nowhere but in your heart.

Providing space fo that bright world and lighting up its marvels you alone are self luminous, perfect Being.

To know it, know yourself.

Siva is but Awareness, absolutely still, abiding in the Heart.
