BhuvanabhUpatir bhagavatah krte |

bhavasi pAchako yamavatAm pate ||

O, the Head of the Ascetics, for the sake of the Lord, the sovereign of the worlds, thou hast become the cook.

As the Avatar, as God incarnate on earth, he undertakes the work of the Creator and helps (by cooking) the evolution.

Arunachala Siva.

narapasUn imAn ahami tAdayam   |

parasivasudanam vi9tanuse pachan  ||


Striking the 'I' thought, of these human beasts, you cook them and hand them over to the Supreme Siva as food.

The Supreme Siva cooks everything in the cauldron of the cosmos.  He is the energy of evolution.  Time, the Transformer,
Mahakala.  He destroys in order to create.  His cosmic actions work out the gradual unfoldment of divine possibilities in man.
On his behalf, Sri Ramana undertakes to help the process of evolution.  He lashes out at the 'I' thought of the people who
are no better than beasts, helps in their enlightenment, transformation and evolution and makes them ripe for divine
consumption.  The Avatar, the descent of God, is intended to quicken the process of the Divine's work on earth.

(Manikkavachagar calls Siva as uyir uNNi, one who swallows the ego)

Arunachala Siva.

timirAni na kevalam vachobhih
karunApAngavilokitais' cha nrnAm   |

hrdaye prasaranti mardayantam
bhagavantam ramanam gurum namAmi  ||

I bow down to Bhagavan Ramana, the Master who destroyed the darkness spreading in the hearts of men,
not solely by His words but also with His sidelong glances of compassion.

Usually words are used for communication. But His sidelong glances laden with compassion without any accompanying
words are more than enough to dispel delusion.  His direct gaze is very powerful, of course, His katAksha is full of mercy,
soothing and healing all.

Plunging again and again into the ocean of births and deaths, at long last, thoroughly fatigued, we thy devotees, have,
now taken shelter under the haven of the pair of thy lotus feet. O Ramana, our Lord merciful, the abode of all auspiciousness,
protect us with thy sidelong glances , moist with compassion.

In the ocean of samsara, births and deaths follow successively.  Plunge  after plunge takes place without any rest or
respite.  Finally the struggling soul, after a lot of experiences, thoroughly exhausted, has arrived at thy feet, its haven.
The Maharshi full of compassion with merciful glances and leads it to happiness.

Arunachala Siva.

If the mother does not suckle the child, alas, where will it go?  If the herdsman gets angry, how is the protection of the
herd possible?  If thou, O Master do not dispel the doubts of those who gather at thy feet, how can they, mortified by a
hundred misapprehensions, be able to go beyond the worldly life"?

The Maharshi is like a mother to all the devotees.  He cannot neglect them.  He has to cherish and nourish them with the milk
of Knowledge.  Lord Siva is Pasupati, the Lord of the beings.  The beings are known as pasus, as they see only pasyati and not
perceive.  But Pasupati has to bind the pasus with his pasa, cord of love.

Maharshi is the master of all who retort to His feet. He has to clear their misgivings and help them ford the miseries of the
worldly life.

In thy transparent smile, fraternizing with the moon, there is fullness of peace.  In thy steady wide eyes of peerless
lustre, there is fullness of force.  In the lotus of the heart, whose lustre flows outside as well, constant is the poise.
O Ramana, my Lord, who else steeped in silence, can be equal to thee in this world?

The moon is born from the ocean of nectar and his rays pour nectar, sudhAkara.  The smile of the Maharshi also arises
from His immortal state clear, cool, transparent and shining.  The gaze is steady and wide with the fullness of force.
There is always poise in the heart and its influence and light spreads outside, all around.

devi sakti riyam drs'oh sritajana-
  dhvaAnta kasyAdhAyini

devi sri riyam ambujAksha mahishi
vaktre sahasracchade           |

devi brahmavadhUr iyam vijayate
  vyAhAra-gUdhA parA

visvacharya mahanubhAva ramana
 tvam stautu kah prAkrtah                ||

In thine eyes is present Goddess Durga, accomplishing the destruction of the ignorance of the people who resort to thee.
In thy face, resembling a thousand petaled lotus, is present Goddess Lakshmi, the queen of the lotus eyed Vishnu.  This
Goddess Sarasvati, the consort of Brahma, holds her sway as parA, the secret hidden in speech.  Master of the Universe,
O, the Illustrious One, Ramana, how can an ordinary man extol thee?

The three great goddesses Durga, Lakshmi, and Sarasvati act through Bhagavan.  Durga destroys all evil forces, puts
an end to the miseries and dispels the darkness and ignorance.  She takes her station in the eyes of Sri Bhagavan and
acts through His penetrating gaze.  Lakshmi has her play in His face.  As the face resembles a full blown lotus, full of
ethereal beauty and charm, the consort of Vishnu has taken her permanent abode there. She spreads concord, harmony,
beauty, and charm all around.

The speech is divided into four states - parA, pasyanti, madhyamA and vaikhari.  Before a word is spoken, it has to be
articulated . Even before articulation, it is found as the seed of conception.  It is in the subtle form of silence.  It is known
as parA.  The next stage is pasyanti, the word is seen in inner vision.  All the Vedic Riks are from pasyanti vAk.  The mantra
is seen by the inner eye and carved out of the heart of the Rishis - hrdA yat tasthAn mantrAn.  The intermediate state when
the vision is translated into speech is madhyamA.  The spoken, articulated word is vaikhari.  In the case of the Maharshi
Sarasvati manifests as parA vAk, the unmanifest seed of sound, the secret womb of silence.

Though in this great moment, when the play of the Force has started, O Ramana, my God, I happen to be far away from
thy feet, even so, my Lord, I am not sad in  my mind, as I believe in thy foremost Force far reaching like the brilliant light
of the Sun.

The Sun is shining in the high heavans, Even so the earth receives its rays.  Once the Maharshi has accepted the devotee
wherever he might be, the Grace acts. Distance is of no consequences.

Muni was in Sirsi when he wrote these and hence he feels he is far away from Tiruvannamalai.

Arunachala Siva.

tad bhAgadheyam asamAnam anekamauni-
 vAsArijitam ksitibhrtah khalu lohitasya   |

angIchkAra bhagavAn ramano maharshir
  anyesu satsu yadimam bahusu sthalesu  ||

When there are so many other places, the fact that Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi accepted this place is verily
the good fortune, unparalleled, the Red Mountain had earned by the residence of many silent sages.

The Red Mountain is a great hallowed place.  So many silent sages have chosen it for their residence to carry out
their austerities. On this account, the Hill had earned a lot of merit, punya.  This punya has borne fruit as the great
Maharshi Himself accepted the place for His residence.

jnAnam nirastakuhanam madhuram cha vrattam
nRnAm nidarsanam ayam ramano maharshih      ||

His peace is very much plentiful, force supreme, dispassion most wonderful, compassion intense, knowledge devoid of
pretense and conduct sweet and nice.  This great seer Ramana is an example to mankind.

The Maharshi has all these godly qualities demonstrating to the world that it is possible for a man to have them.  He is an
example for men to emulate.

Upasnharaslokam:  Concluding verse:

nArasimhir ganapatir vAsishto ramanam gurum |

chatvArimsanmitaih padyaih skandAmsam stutavAn rishim   ||

Ganapati, of Vasishta clan, son of Narasimha, thus adored in forty verses the Master, the Seer Ramana, a portion of
Skanda descended on earth.
