punarvasu vaNNam - 28.09.2013
« on: September 28, 2013, 09:46:57 AM »

Today is the punarvasu star day of the month of purattaasi month (Kanya month in Sanskrit).  Sri Bhagavan was born on
a punarvasu star day in the month of Margazhi month (Dhanur month in Sanskrit).  The Asramam authorities celebrate
every month the punarvasu day to mark Sri Bhagavan's memory.  On this day, special pujas are done with a golden casket
adorning the Ramaneswara Maha Lingam.

Sri Muruganar has written a decad titled punarvasu vaNNam the valor and glory of punarvasu star, which is a gold colored
star.

Two verses from Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai of Muruganar in this connection:

Ulaham kaNda Pathu - decad on viewing the world.

412.  The wretch's mind that once stood like
         A granite stone without a spark
         Of love for any being, Ramana
         Transformed into pure gold.  And now,
         Lo, it beholds the world as all
         Awareness, the one Sole Awareness
         Of the Self.     

417.  Insane, deluded by the senses
         And darting outward to the world's
         Vast wilderness, I never turned
         And looked within.  Yet, Venkata,
         Embodied Freedom, mad me His
         And then I saw this whole world filled
         With that Awareness primal, whose
         Other form is 'Ramana.   

Arunachala Siva.
