Atma Vidya Vilasam - (5)
« on: September 03, 2008, 01:04:04 PM »
verse 11:- All the five elements are said to have originated
one from another, but one is not above the other in their
cause.  Only the power of Brahman has created all these.
They are also not different from Brahman because Brahman
and his power are one and the same.  Contemplating at all
times, in his way, the yogi enjoys incessant nirvikalpa samadhi.
It is from the desire of Brahman, that all these creations have
originated.  But again his desires are not different from him.

Verse 12:-  The whole universe appears like a dream. Whatever
be its composition, nothing stands in the realization of the Self.
He, (the Jnani) moves about freely in all his acts, with this
understanding undeterred.  He has no fixed dislikes and likes
and he harbours no ambitions. He never considers any other
Jiva, as his enemy. He is above pride and pleasure, and he
never enjoys any fleeting joys.  He is unconcerned amidst
wealth and comforts.   He lives as renouncer amidst all material
enjoyments and acquisitions.  He develops no feelings amidst
all difficulties and adversities.   He is ever peaceful in the midst
of foes.  Even in insults, he is unaffected, and he has only
forgiveness, even for those who have insulted him.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana is the epitome of all that is elaborated
in the above verse.

to be contd....

Arunachala Siva.
