Bhagavan Jayanti - 03.01.2018 - 138th Jayanti:
« on: January 03, 2018, 08:29:06 AM »
Today is Bhagavan Jayanti - 138th Jayanti.  Margazhi Punarvasu star day.  The young Venkataraman was born on this day, in Tiruchuzhi. The day next to Ardra Darsanam day. He was born in the early morning.  The mid wife who was blind suddenly saw a flash of Light when the baby was born.

The young Venkatraman was not brilliant in his studies.  He used to swim in the nearby river and spent his time.

**

The Asramam celebrates the Jayanti day, with special abhishekam, alankaram and
arti to Sri Ramaneswara Maha Lingam, followed by many songs in praise of Bhagavan.
Ilayaraja also used to come on this day and sing his own songs in praise of Bhagavan.
This will be followed by good lunch, with sweets.

In evening, there will be dance dramas, reading of Tiruvachakam and other such
functions.

Arunachala Siva.

When Bhagavan was in his body, devotees used to come in the morning and present
Him with a pair of kaupinas and towels and do namaskarams to Him.  He will just
see them and by His look, used to bless them.  He will not show His hands by way
of asirvatham.


Arunachala Siva.

Bhagavan has written a verse which meant : Why are you celebrating this birthday?
Only when you merge your ahankaram with the Brahman inside, that is the real
birth day.

He also wrote:  When you are born, the others should weep along with you.
Why should they rejoice?

Arunachala Siva.

To Sri Bhagavan, the One Reality Eternal:

C.S. Bagi has written in his poem:

The world is still.  And Light and Sound and Thought
Transfixed in Space and Time, like insects caught
In amber rock, are by gone things inwrought
In Cosmic Consciousness, where all is Nought.

Alas, how vain are eyes that think they see!
And ears they hear, and Mind that it is free!
True Freedom is to say all Thought and be
Like wave-less waters of the deepest sea.

No more can I still than go astray,
For fixed is all I do from day to to day.
My steps along the round of Time must stay;
Without Thy Grace I cannot even pray.

But what is fixed to me to Thee is void:
Through hardest rock Thy softest will can ride;
All fire, water, earth and air must hide
As I, this mock existence Thee beside.

Arunachala Siva.

To Beloved Bhagavan - the Lord of Love:

Eleanor Pauline Noye:

Oh Lord of Love, Who dwells within my heart!
May I sing Thy Praise through all Eternity,
Thou, the Adorable One, the All Compassionate,
Whose Loving smile illumines the world,
Who art tender as a mother and strong as a father,
Thou, whose sublime life is an inspiring sermon
Fill me with Thy Presence, Beloved Master, with the Nectar of Thy Grace;
May Thy great Love and Light fill my heart to the full.
Resting secure in Thy Presence
And knowing whence cometh Peace, Guidance and Strength,
May I always listen; for, in the Silence I hear Thy Voice, --
The Voice of God...

Arunachala Siva.

Liberated Ramana:

Our salutations to Sri Ramana, the Yogi,
Who is Sriman Narayana Himself, Who is the
Perfection of all beatific virtues, Who has
cast of all flaws of life, Whose conduct is wonderful,
Who is the Celestial Tree of Parijata fulfilling the desires
of all that resort to Him, Who is fond of residing in Sonagiri
and Who has long been Liberated during life.

Mahamahopadhyaya, Upayavedanta,
R.V.Krishnamacharya Swamy.


Arunachala Siva.

Namam - (Name):

Upahar:

No, you are never distant, never, near,
not subject to remembrance or forgetting.
You are what everything already is,
and all approaches mere imagination,
  no gateway opening
into the infinite palace of the being.

And yet our song of love forever rises,
futile as laughter, tuned to the wandering moon,
flowering here where you abide and shine.

For where shall the radiant bird of praise take flight,
 in every heart set free, 
but in the endless skyway of your name?

Arunachala Siva.

Hridaya Guha:

Janet Robinson

Curling tendrils of Grace,
Pull me to your Heart Cave, O Ramana!

Let the Power of this Hill in all Its forms
Reveal the Self shining within.

May the banyan tree of Wisdom
Strangle and starve the habits of my mind.

Flesh eating birds of Bliss,
Tear away the memory of desire.

Lighting of Inquiry, blazing fire,
Burn the knotted ropes,
Loosening, falling,
Falling away.

Iron rich boulders of Sadhana,
Crush the bones of grief then burn them in your furnace,
Blue-black as night.

Cleansing rain of Surrender,
wash away the ash, the cloaking haze of regret.

Healing Nectar of Devotion,
Dissolve the leaf bed on which I dream.
Unwrap my shrouded thoughts,
Let the vibrations of Your Name
Drench my mind with the Medicine of You.

Aruna Path, with your tender stones of Grace, mercifully
Lead me to my sweet demise,
O Ramana, in the cave of your dominion.

Such is Your Love, O Arunachala,
that I will not survive your mercy.

No greater Bliss is there than this;
To become the Space in which
the soaring Arunagiri birds wing home.

Arunachala Siva.

Mountain Path, A Song at First Light:

Upahar:

Clouds are drifting on the hillside,
trees are singing in a morning breeze,
and you are listening to the river,
moving,as the river of boundless peace.

Silence opens like a flower,
a cup of rainbows overflows within,
and you are leaning to the presence,
kneeling in the presence of the one you are.

Wandering in this realm so fair,
trust the way to lead you where it is going;
while bird sails without a care,
she trusts the wind to take her where it is blowing.

Beloved dancer in the halls of dawn,
all beings held now in your first wild light,
shining in your vision, walking to your rhythm,
All creation sways.
O lovers of the ancient pathways,
born into beauty in the fields of grace,
I will meet you in His footsteps,
I will greet you before time begin I will meet you Here.

Though skies may turn and thoughts must flow,
day spine  against its insubstantial story,
yet love to love will laugh and bow;
sing, here to here and now to now, the Glory.       

Arunachala Siva.
