Nirvritti Panchakam - 3
« on: July 22, 2009, 11:31:38 AM »
Yesterday I wrote about Sarangati Kirtanam and Nirvritti Panchakam
of M.V. Ramaswami Iyer and Naryana Guru.  Our Forum friend "I"
today responded saying about the incident which is a miracle. i.e.
the tap water coming in Kanpur house.  This made me to give a
brief translation of Saranagati Kirtanam covering about 2 verses.

This thought took me to Nirvritti Panchakam of Narayana Guru,
who met Bhagavan Ramana on the Hill in 1917.  I searched for
the Tamil version which is available in Kunju Swamigal's reminiscences.  But this book could not be traced.  Then I found
the beautiful translation of Nirvritti Panchakam in the 8 volume
book: Arunachala's Ramana, the Boundless Ocean of Grace.

I am giving the translation as found in the book:

1. He alone enjoys the inner felicity of the One Self of all, who
refrains from enquiries about the name, native land, caste or
clan, calling and age of others.

2. He alone enjoys the inner felicity of the One Self of all, who
does not ask anyone to come, go, not to go, to enter within or
where one is going.

3. He alone enjoys he inner felicity of the One Self of all, who
does not enquire of anybody, where he is going, arriving from
where and who he is.

4. He alone enjoys the inner felicity of the One Self of all, who has
no notion of differentiation as I, you, he, that, within or without,
existence, or non existence.

5. He alone enjoys the inner felicity of the One Self of all, who
remains in the same with the known and unknown and free from
distinctions as oneself and others and the assertion even of non-
difference.

This is from Varkalai Narayanan, who met the One Self of all today.

Narayana Guru then took leave of Bhagavan Ramana and then
looked straight in to His eyes for a few moments.  Then he said
in ecstasy:  Let it happen like that (for me).  i.e. Let me too
become established in that State of Sahaja Samadhi!

Narayana Guru then returned to Kerala after some time, and he
sent one more composition on Bhagavan Ramana titled Municharya
Panchakam -  "Panchakam on the Muni, the Sage." or "Pentad
on the conduct of a realized Sage."   

Arunachala Siva.
