The Glory of Arunachala
« on: October 22, 2008, 02:30:29 PM »
The Maharshi once said: " Arunachala destroys attachment to worldly
things, that is, to the objects of physical illusion."

M. Sodousky says:

" This I proved later, when I found that every time Arunachala
was mentioned or described by those who regarded it as their
beacon, I felt this worldly illusion disappearing from my thoughts,
falling into shadows of ureality, which is their true source."

"The peak of Arunachala points the way upwards, a way always
the same and unchangeable throughout the ages. It speaks to
us in the language of Silence, as Maharshi does."

"Whoever has reached the state of an uninturrupted union with,
or merging in truth, is a master, a superman.  He is one for ever
with the Source of his inspiration, the mysterious Arunachala.
At the feet of such a great one, I now have the privilege to abide."

"Nothing can happen without a purpose, or in vain.  The light
of Arunachala, will show me further steps upwards, as it has
already revealed the meaning of the most enigmatic of all truth:
'To live, one must lose oneself,' that is our transient 'I'. As the
Maharshi points out:* ' Here on eartrh there exists a rare remedy
which helps those who have recognized the illusory character
of htier personality, to discard and even destroy it, without destroying
themselves physically.  Know it to be none other than this Great
Arunachala.' "   

(* Arunachala Stuti Panchakam - Bhagavan Ramana.)

All is silence and peace.  The fresh eastern breeze is now blowing!
