Dear Ravi ji,

Thank you very much for giving beautiful clarification of Thruppavai.  We are so lucky to be a tamilian who can enjoy this Thruppavai word by word. These 30 songs have everything in it. It has IYAL, ISAI, NATAKAM. i.e. MUTHAMIZH . All above it is a navaneetham, which offers prema bhakthi towards God.  Telugu people who cannot utter a single tamil word sings 30 songs of Thruppavai. (vaishnavas) during Margazhi. How it spread to Andhra we do not know.

Anyway I request you to continue  this thread. It is a treat for me.

Dear Ravi ji,

ThankS for giving insight and inner meaning of Thruppavai. Here I would like to say.. for any poem, poet start with Ganapathy sthuthi and at the end pala sruthi.  In Thruppavai there is no Ganapathy vandanam or KAAPU CHEIYUL

But Sri AandaL Herself sang the pala sruthi in the last poem.  those who sing all these 30 stanzas will be ENGUM THRUVARUL PERRU..)
Another thing, She says, PATTAR PIRAN KODHAI . She knew that Her devotion to Lord raises Herself to Pattar piran post. In the same way who sings this pavai with devotion become to the highest post (PADHAVI)

Dear sir,

As this thruppavai is mantra, the vaishnava's chant like mantra only.This is VEDHAM ANANITHUKUM VITHAGUM KODHAI THAMIZH.  We can sing in carnatic ragas, we can perform in dance form or we can chant like mantra. As we do other slokas we can do parayana.
At this young age, it is beyondr my capacity to think how she could sing in ILLAKIYA THAMIZH.

Dear sir,

The best example is from Gopi"s day to day life. Their mind was with Krishna, but still they married, got kids, looking after the family and the cows. When the mind is with Lord, who cares about what sort of sadhana.
Whatever the work or sadhana it is to be offered to Lord"s feet. SAMARPANAM only

Dear sir,

When Periyazhvar found the baby girl, He gave the name KODHAI. But she got the name AaNDaaL. She not only caught Ranganathan's heart i.e. AaNDu koNdavaL. But she conquered The language of Tamil, and Vedham. No other name is fit than AaNDaal.

Dear sir,

In waking and dreaming state the mind is working. Not the heart. In deep sleep KANAVU ARRA NILAI. even the spiritual heart also is not there.
Is not it.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / The real deepavali
« on: November 07, 2013, 03:56:37 PM »
Dear sirs,

One of my friends forwarded to me. Just I want share with this forum.  Many may know this poem still it is worth to go through it.


Ramana Maharshi about Deepavali.




The Conquest of Hell (Naraka)

The Puranas say that Lord Narayana has killed the demon [of misery], Naraka Asura. This demon is none other than the one who lives as “I am this body, the source of misery”. One who seeks Naraka Asura’s [i.e., the ego’s] source, and thus annihilates him, is truly Lord Narayana Himself.

The Deepavali-bath, which is taken by all people on the fourteenth moon in remembrance of the conquest of Naraka, signifies the bath of Jnana, which is taken after destroying the ego Naraka Asura, by searching for his source.

The above two verses were summarised in the following verse by Sri Bhagavan:

He who kills Narakasura (the ego) with the Wheel [i.e.weapon] of Jnana, by enquiring, “Where is the source of Narakasura who rules over Narakaloka, this wretched body, as ‘I’?”, is Lord Narayana; and that day [of the ego’s destruction] is the auspicious day of the fourteenth moon.

Deepavali signifies the great Self-Effulgence which shines after destroying the reflected light [i.e. the ego], Narakasura, who was ruling this filthy body, which is the form of hell, as ‘I’.

Deepavali signified the shining of Self after the destruction, through enquiry, of the greatest sinner,Naraka [the ego], who took the abode of this filthy body, which is the form of hell, as ‘I’.

He is Narakasura (a demon) who feels attached in the thought that he is the body. That attachment to the body itself is a Naraka (hell). The life of a person who has that attachment, even if he be a Maharajah,is hellish. Destroying the attachment to the body, and the self shining by itself as Self is Deepavali.

He is the king of hell who says that he is the body which is hell itself. He is Narayana who ascertains who Naraka is,and destroys him with His vision of wisdom, Jnana Drishti.

That is the auspicious day of Narakachathurdasi.

The false belief that this hell-like house called body is me, is Naraka himself. To destroy that false belief and let the self shine as Self, is Deepavali.

Guru Vachaka Kovai is the biggest collection of Bhagavan’s spoken teachings that was thoroughly checked and revised by Him during His lifetime. As such it has a unique place in the Ramana literature.

General Discussion / how to watch our words,and action
« on: September 27, 2013, 06:59:20 PM »
Dear sir,

Before doing any work we think and start doing. In beginning it is little easy to watch how we are reaction for our results and others result.
Slowly "watching" action is over taken by the work.

So full surrender is good rather than watching our thoughts and action....
