Swayam,
I warmly recommend the Album 'Ramana Amudam' featuring singing of akshara maNa mAlai, by smt Sulochana NatarAjan and other devotees.This group called RamanAnjali has sung most compositions on Sri Bhagavan by Great Devotees like MuruganAr,sri Sadhu OM,not to forget satyamangalam venkatrama Iyer.
I also recommend the excellent 'Ramana Geetam' by RamanAnjali group,songs of Sri sAdhu OM in Tamizh on Sri Bhagavan.
Ramana Amudam was one of the earliest albums that was issued as a Cassette in the  late seventies.It will be available as a CD,definitely at Sri Ramanasramam.

Namaskar.

Om Namo Bhagavate Sri Ramanaya

Dear Ravi

Thank you. Is it all in Tamil, then I will not understand a bit :-(.
Thats why I thought I will look out for just Arunachala Siva chant.

Om Namo Bhagavate Sri Ramanaya

The song was Ayye metha kadinam by Gopalakrishna Bharathi which I believe was sung by a visitor. Nochurji has talked about this in one of his discourses. As you have mentioned Sri Muruganar has said atma vidya is easy in the pallavi of the ayye athi sulabam atma vidai.

Lataji, thank you, yes, it was Gopalakrishna Bharati, and i guess. Thank you for this reminder. This is so nice. I was able to dig out the Gopalakrishna Bharati song as well:

(This song is the reply given by NandanAr to his landlord when the latter, recognizing the great devotion of NandanAr, asks him to teach the secret of attaining Godhead. It is extremely complex  and on my request  Sri Lakshman  Ragde  sent me its meaning. I tried to understand  it by reading what Sri Lakshman wrote and this is the result. I am also giving the meaning sent by sri Ragde  from rasikas.org below my translation. Millions of thanks to Sri Lakshman Ragde . May God bless him.)

Pallavi
Sire , it is very difficult, I am but your slave,
It is very difficult for me to explain
 
Anupallavi
The place which the unfailing lord of the golden temple lives,
Can be easily  understood by those humans  who are strong.
 
Charanam
1.The religious books say  that the fear of God of death,
Is not there ,  due the salutation with devotion  that Balakrishnan does,
To  the  most holy  teacher of Chidambaram,
Due to the fact  that  it is a great  temple  and he being a good receiver.
If one sees Him  by his inner eye of wisdom  through the arch surrounding the God,
By the path of primeval fire which surrounds it,
And worship Him and bow to Him , and leaves away the baser instincts,
Which are in  his Kundali,  which will shake him and also surround him like a cloud,
He would leave his  pride and dignity  and stand  firmly,
And he would become a captain of wisdom like a commander in chief.
 
2.Understand this , protect this truth , assimilate it within yourself , that is all that is sufficient,
All your doubts will then vanish  and by drinking the ebbing milk of understanding,
All your  body and mind  would get relaxed and you would stand like a golden doll,
You will start understanding everything , become wise  and be  a victor over everything.
 
3.Even if  you undergo great strain by yogic methods , it would go away ,
It Would not be available , would not allow you near it,
And whatever little that touches you  would make the mind blunt,
It would get exhausted  and  would disappear within you,
You would neither get it by recitation of Vedic chants,
Nor would you be able to get it through  Yanthras,
Not even by thanthric practices and in the end ,
All achievements  would be of no use ,
And it Would become your weakness  and  be a useless silence.
 
4.To those who stand outside crossing the three useless divisions of life,
This vision is not there  for he would dance , keep rhythm by beats ,
Audiences will gather and would  sing songs ,
There are no one who have seen this, and those have felt  have not revealed it,
And there all  crores of universes would have joined together.
Should this be told to you by one belonging to a debased caste.
Sir, the time is getting late, shall I go there.


(Translation - PR Ramachander)

Dear Nagaraj,

Nandanar was an outcaste. He was an agricultural laborer. The landlords do not give him leave for seeing Chidambaram.
So he says, O Lord! It is difficult to have darshan, very difficult.  Finally the landlord says: You plough, plant the saplings,
and channelize water tonight itself. Then you can go on leave. Siva helps him. In one night, not only the land was ploughed,
saplings were planted, water channelized, but the paddy has grown to full extent!  The landlord was astonished and he
became afraid of Nandanar's love for Nataraja. Leave was granted. He was virtually running to Chidambaram. In order to
make him happy, Nataraja, gave his darshan even in Tirupunkur, miles before Chidambaram!

Arunachala Siva.

Dear swayam.

Arunachala's Ramana - Boundless Ocean of Grace is a 8 volume book - containing the brief synopsis of Sri Bhagavan's works
and reminiscences of all the devotees. Sri Ramana Gita and other works are also included there.

Arunachala Siva.

Total guru bhakti was evident with Sri Bhagavan's many devotees of inner circle, Whether it is Kunju Swami, or Viswantha
Swami, Muruganar, Suri Nagamma, Smt, T.R. kanakammal, Arthur Osborne, Major Chadwick, Annamalai Swami ,S.S. Cohen- all had
total faith in Sri Bhagvan's teachings and concentrated on self inquiry. Only Kavya  kanta Ganapati Muni had scattered interest
in life and he went in for various things, like freedom movement, teaching mantras to Harijans etc.,

All the above had self realization at the end of their lives. This is evident from Moments Remembered of Sri Ganesan.     

Dear Sir,

You reminded me Smt. kanakammAl's aikyam (union) with Bhagavan in the samAshi hall!

Dear Nagaraj,

I and my wife witnessed this incident on 1.1.2010.
She was not all that well. She came just before Mangala Arti. The crowd parted and gave way for her. She prostrated
before Sri Bhagavan's Ramanseswara Mahalingam and she did not get up. What a fortune to get absorbed in Sri
Bhagavan on that day of Sri Bhagavan's Jayanti!


Arunachala Siva.
