ULLadu Narpadu - 135
« on: May 26, 2010, 10:31:28 AM »

Sri Lakshmana Sarma covers the message of Verse 22 of ULLadu
Narpadu in some of his verses in Sri Ramana Paravidyopanishad.

Verse 268:  As God does not become an object of vision, neither
does He become an object of knowledge.  Since He transcends
the mind, the mind will know Him (if at all) only wrongly.

Verse 269:  Since the Real Self, who is Consciousness, is the same
as god, and there is no consciousness apart from Him, (it follows
that) there is no one to know Him, other than He, nor does He
become an object of knowledge.

Verse 270:  The Source of the light of consciousness there is in
the mind is just the Real Self, and hence there is no such thing
as mind, apart from Him, as something real.

Verse 271:  The Consciousness which is the Self, shines in the heart by Its own Light (of consciousness) like the Sun.  By its light the mind -- which by itself is insentient -  appears as sentient like
the moon (shining by the borrowed light of the sun).

Verse 272:  Since consciousness is not of the nature of the mind,
it goes into latency in deep sleep.  (But) the Real Self never goes
into latency, because consciousness is His very Nature.

Verse 273:  The mind always veils (for itself) the Real Nature
of that Self, both in dream in waking.  Becoming latent in deep
sleep and wholly extinguished in the Supreme State, how can it
ever know Him, who is the Sole Reality?

Verse 274:  There is the pronouncement of the Most Holy One,
that the true knowing of God is simply the mind becoming one with Him in the Natural State by seeking the Source wherefrom it has
come into being.

Verse 275:  What one has to do is to obtain perfect poise in
unity, with the Supreme Being, whether by devotion or by the
quest of the Real Self, with the clear understanding that God
and the soul are not distinct entities in reality.

Verse 276:  There is two fold ignorance experienced by those
not aware of the Real Self, which are named as knowledge and
ignorance.  The Sage is delivered from both.  This pair is unreal
just like all else.

Verse 279:  Whatever one knows by the intellect or the senses,
without first knowing the Truth of the one that arises, saying
" I am the knower ", all that he knows only wrongly.

Arunachala Siva.
