Punarvasu VaNNam, - 6th October 2015:
« on: October 06, 2015, 01:12:40 PM »
Today is the Punarvasu star day of the month of Purattasi.  Sri Bhagavan was born on a Punarvasu
star day in the month of Margazhi.

Every Punarvasu star day is celebrated in the Asramam as a special day, with special alankaram,
pujas and arti is shown at the end for Sri Ramaneswara Mahalingam.  This is followed by a good
lunch with sweets.

To remember this auspicious day, I give below the verse from Tiruch Chazhal of Muruganar's
Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai:


மற்றுவமை இல்லாத மாதவத்தான் வேங்கடவன்
அற்றவரை ஆதரிக்கும் மந்தநிறை காணேடி
அற்றவரை ஆதரிக்கும் மந்தணிறை ஆயிடில் என்
குற்றுயிரா என் நெஞ்சைக் கொன்றான் காண் சாழலோ. (Verse 1541)

The English translation of Prof. K. Swaminathan is as under:

Unique, unequaled, mighty Master,
Venkata, they say, sustains
The poor and helpless. So they  say.
But look, my heart he has pierced
And left me half dead, What is the game?


Arunachala Siva.

Today, the 2nd November 2015, is the day of Punarvasu star, the birth star of Sri Maharshi.
He was born on the day of Punarvasu star, in the month of Margazhi.

Every Punarvasu Star Day is being observed as a day of celebration in the Asramam.  There
will be special pujas to Ramaneswara Mahalingam, followed by a feast.

To remember this holy day, I give below 2 verses from Manikkavachagar and Muruganar:


Verse 746 of Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai:- (Pilgrimage to Siva's Abode.)

படுமாயப் பாழ்ம் பொய்யுலகைப்
 பண்டமாக்கிப் பல புரிந்து
கொடுமா நிரயக் குழி வீழ்ந்து
 கொடியோங் களைத்தான் குறிக் கொண்டான்
அடுமாரெண்ணி அருள் வாளால்
 அவிச்சை தன்னை அரவடர்த்து
நடுவே எழுவோ நமை ஆண்ட
 ரமணன் திரு நன் நாட்டுக்கே.


As His target He has chosen
Sinners like us who trusted as true
This wholly false and empty world
And were busily active, ready to fall
Into the gaping pit of hell.
Now let us think of the way of life
Slay ignorance with sword
Of His grace and rise straight
To the zenith, to the sacred land
Of Ramana who governs us.

(Tr. Prof. K. Swaminathan)

This is Verse 950 of Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai - Yathiraip Pathu:


அடியார்க்கு எளியான் அம்பலத்தான்
 அவுணர் புரம் போல் என் புரமும்
பொடியாப் பொரிந்து புன்முறுவல்
 பொங்கு முகத்தான் வேங்கடவன்
விடியா இருள் சேர் இரு வினையை
 வீட்டும் கதிர்வாள் விழி நோக்கம்
படியா நின்றார் பரந்தாமப்
 பவிசு கண்டார் படியிடத்தே.



To devotees easy of access
Is Venkata, Lord of the open space,
Whose face lights up with a smile
Because He has razed my mind as once
Hr razed the Asura's fort.  Those on whom
Has fallen His grace, the shining sword
Destroying the dense dark, two fold karma,
Have in this very body beheld
All heaven's splendor.

(Tr. Prof. K. Swaminathan)

Arunachala Siva.

Punarvasu VaNNam:

Today is the Punarvasu star day of the month of Kartikai.  Bhagavan was born on a punarvasu
day in the month of Margazhi. The Asramam celebrates every Punarvasu Star day with
special pujas for Sri Ramaneswara Mahalingam and they place a golden linga, on the stone
linga.  After puja and arti, there will be special lunch for visitors.

Atmanubhava (the direct experience of the Self) is not only experiencing love through mind
but also through the five senses, everywhere and at all times.  This is seeing, hearing, eating
smelling and touching love, which is all bliss.

-    Verse 62  of Guru Vachaka Kovai.

Arunachala Siva.
