Atma Vidya Vilasam - (2)
« on: September 03, 2008, 12:05:03 PM »
Sadasiva Brahmendra, the author, then prays to the Primal
Guru Sri Dakshinamoorthy and his guru in the world, Sri
Parama Sivendra in the opening verses.

Verse 1:- I salute Sri Dakshinamoorthy, who sits under a
banyan tree and with a cinmudra sign, denoting the union
of jiva and Brahman, and teaches the Brahma-Jnana through
Infinite Silence!  He dispels the ignorance of the seekers and
reveals Brahman, in his own form.

Verse 2:-  I meditate in my miind Sadguru Sivendra, who
annihilates the illusion brought about by the Buddhistic
cults, by his Advaita 'tejas' (light).  He is the boat to cross
the ocean of samsara, (wordly life), with all its miseries.

Verse 3:-  I salute Sivendra Guru, who possesses the same name
of Sadasiva.  It is through his tremendous power and message
flowing from his lips, I understood my identity with the all-
pervading Brahman.  With that Brahman within me , I am
having infinite peace, which has not been brought by reading
various scriptures.

to be contd....

Arunachala Siva.

Dear subramanian,
                        The name Dakshina Murty denotes spiritual heart.Dakshina=right.Amurty=formless.This is what Bhagawan told about the
spiritual heart,it's location and formlessness.Then is there any significance Dakshina murty sitting under a banyan tree and teaching in silence only?

Dear Raju,  Daksinamoorthy, Siva, is sitting under banyan tree,
which is called vada-ala-maram, in Tamil.  Here 'vada' means
uthra, the North.  He is the Spiritual North Pole, for all seekers,
His teaching is Silence.   And the sincere seekers understood his
silence and though that the Brahma tattva, the principle of Brahman.
Their doubts are cleared and they got a moksha-sadhanam, the
way to Liberation.  This is puranic meaning, though esoterically
he is formless.

Arunachala Siva.
