Narayanthu Prandhan
« on: September 12, 2009, 04:52:45 PM »
Narayanathu Prandhan was a Malayalee Jnani.  He was called
Prandhan, which means madcap.  He used to wander all over
the village saying:  Manasile Ayilla, Manasile Ayilla.  I have not
got it in the mind, I have not got it in the mind!  People used
to make fun of him.

One day, he started saying:  Manasile Aayee.  Manasile Aayee.
I got it in my mind, I got it in my mind!

At that time, his guru appeared before him and asked Prandhan:
What is it, that you have got in your mind?

Prandhan replied:  I got it in my mind, that I cannot get it
in my mind!

His guru took Prandhan with him.

Hrudaya cannot be captured by mind.

Arunachala Siva.
