punarvasu vaNNam - 11.06.2013
« on: June 11, 2013, 10:37:19 AM »

Today is the punarvasu star day of the Tamizh month of Vaikasi (Baisaki).  In this month, the punarvasu star comes for the
second time.  The earlier punarvasu day was during first week of Vaikasi. 

Today there will be special pujas for Sri Ramaneswara Mahalingam.   Sri Bhagavan was born in Margazhi (Dhanur) punarvasu
day.  Sri Rama was born in Chitra (Chaitra) punarvasu day.  Sri Bhagavan and Sri Rama are having same qualities and characteristics
says B.V. Narasimha Swami.  Sri Ramaneswara Mahalingam will be adorned with golden casket today.  punarvasu is a star with
a golden color. 

Sri Muruganar has sung songs titled punarvasu vaNNam in Sri Ramana Sanndihi Murai.  I shall however today give one verse
from Tiruk kaN nokkam, Eye gazing the Eye i.e looking at Sri Bhagavan's compassionate eyes. 

verse No. 1617 of Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai, tr. David Godman:

He is the Siddha
who performs the dance of supreme Jnana,
and bestows upon us the life of grace, saying:
'See, this great and vastly spacious world
is a mere trick of sight!'
thus rendering heaven, earth, and nether world
a prey to the supreme firmament of true Jnana !'
With Him who bears an eye upon his forehead,
with Venkata, let us play kaNNokkam !
