If there is a boil on the body, you apply ointment on it and cover it with a bandage until it heals. If you do not apply ointment and tie the bandage around this wound, it is likely to become septic and cause great harm later. Now and then you must clean it with pure water, apply ointment again and put on a new bandage. In the same way, in our life, there is this boil which has come up in our body in the form of 'I'. If you want to really cure this boil of 'I', you will have to wash it every day with the waters of love, apply the ointment of faith on it and tie the bandage of humility around it. The bandage of humility, the ointment of faith, and the waters of love will surely cure this disease that erupted with this boil of 'I'.

Today marks the commencement of the (Tamil and Kerala) New Year. Many such New Years have come and gone by. Everyone expects the new year to confer on them and the world at large peace, happiness and prosperity. But the welfare of the world depends on your conduct and behavior. Your conduct depends on your mind. The nature of the mind depends on thoughts. Only when your thoughts are based on truth, will the world flourish. If you aspire for the welfare of the world, see to it that your thoughts and actions are in accordance with your aspirations. If you have anger in you, you cannot escape misery. One with desires can never attain happiness. Less luggage, more comfort. Desires are your luggage. Reduce them in order to lead a comfortable life. A greedy person can never attain prosperity. Give up greed and you will be happy, prosperous and blissful!

Self, devoid of the limitation of name and form https://groups..yahoo.com/neo/groups/HarshaSatsangh/conversations/topics/67123;_ylc=X3oDMTJwN2pwbWFxBF9TAzk3MzU5NzE1BGdycElkAzczMTczBGdycHNwSWQDMTcwNTA2MDk1NQRtc2dJZAM2NzEyMwRzZWMDZG1zZwRzbGsDdm1zZwRzdGltZQMxNTIzNTk1MTMy

Sri Ramanopadesa Noonmalai - (The Teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi)

Word by word in English
Meaning : Sri Sadhu Om
Translation : Michael James

Ulladu Narpadu - (The Reality in Forty Verses)


4. If oneself is a form composed of flesh, the world and God will be likewise (that is, they will also be forms); if oneself is not a form, who can see their forms, and how? Can the sight (that which is seen) be otherwise than the eye (the seer)? Self, the (real) eye is the limitless eye (the eye which is devoid of the limitation of name and form).

Note: The words "Kanalal Katchi undo" may also be taken to mean, "without the eye (the seer), can there be the sight (that which is seen)?" However, Sri Bhagavan Himself used to explain these words to mean "Can the sight be otherwise than the eye?", which is a meaning having a far deeper import.

Since the nature of what is seen cannot be different from the nature of the seer, and since the ego or mind can come into existence only by identifying the name and form of a body as 'I', it can see only names and forms and can never see Self, the nameless and formless reality. Only when one gives up identifying the body as 'I', can one see or realize Self. Since in that state of self-realization one remains only as Self, the nameless and formless existence-consciousness-bliss (sat-chit-ananda) , one can then see only that nameless and formless existence-consciousness-bliss and can never see the names and forms of this world. That is why Sri Bhagavan asks in this verse, "If oneself is not a form (but only the formless Self), who can see their forms (the forms of the world and God), and how?".

It is to be noted here that the Tamil word 'Kan', which literally means 'eye', also means 'consciousness' (chit) or 'knowledge' (jnana). Therefore the last sentence of this verse also means, "Self, the (real) consciousness (or knowledge), is the limitless (and therefore formless) consciousness (or knowledge)".

One's unceasing effort to turn the mind

Grant Summerville



Guru Vachaka Kovai




(The Garland of Guru's Sayings) by Sri Muruganar

Translation and Commentary Sri Sadhu Om & Michael James




Guru Vachaka Kovai is the most profound, comprehensive and reliable collection of the sayings of Sri Ramana, recorded in 1255 Tamil verses composed by Sri Muruganar, with an additional 42 verses composed by Sri Ramana. Each of the stanzas composed by Sri Muruganar embodies one of the actual sayings of Sri Bhagavan, and all of them were shown to Sri Bhagavan, who approved them and wherever necessary corrected them.




69. Self-enquiry




396. One's unceasing effort to turn the mind – which is always extroverted due to the force of habit [cultivated in past births] – towards Self by the Self-enquiry "Who am I?" is [the significance of] the great war being fought between devas and asuras [which is described in the Puranas].




Sadhu Om: In India many stories are recorded in books known as the Puranas, which tell of the wars being fought between devas [gods] and asuras [demons]. These wars should not be regarded as mere myths or events that happened only in the distant past, they are going on even today. They are the constant battle which is always being fought in the life of a sadhaka between his liking to attend only to Self and the habitual outward-going tendencies of his mind.

Every Jiva (individual) should do Siva Linga Pratisthaapana before Kaalam snatches away Praanamulu(life) as Kaala Dharmam. The reason being Lingam signifies that this human life in the form of Gamanam (journey) should reach its Gamyam (destination) by becoming Leenam (dissolution) in Eswara as Layam just like the salt which is produced from the sea water gets dissolved when it is dropped in the sea. Accordingly a Saadhaka (Spiritual seeker) intending to make his life successful (Saarthakam/ SaphaliKrutam) should convert Deham (body) in to a Sailam(hill) and should build Aalayam (temple) on it through transformation of Buddi in to Aaalyam (temple). Having thus converted Deham in to Achalam/hill (without movement) and Buddi in to Aalayam, the Saadhaka should perform Pratisthaapana (installation) of Eswara Lingam in the Aalayam (Buddi).
Having thus performed Siva Linga Prathishtha,the Saadhaka should perform Shodasa Upachaara Pooja(worship in the form of sixteen comforts) regularly on daily basis. Prabhu Rama as Mahaneeya Gunaatmajam is composed of Shodasa Sat Gunamulu as stated in Srimad Ramayanam. Accordingly the Saadhaka should load all these sixteen Sat Gunamulu in to memory through chanting Taaraka Mantram as blessed by Eswara as Adi Guruvu and as granted by Guru Deva Hanuman as Atma Guruvu through recalling them to mind . Having thus done the worship,the Saadhaka should perform Atma Pradakshinam by revolving mind around Eswara in the form of thoughts/ contemplation on Eswara as Eswara is in all Bhutamulu(beings) as Atma.
At the end, the Saadhala should perform Saashthanga Pranaamam to Eswara Lingam through withdrawal of Prana Sakti/Jhnanam as embedded in the eight Angamulu(parts) namely Pancha Jhnana Indriyamulu(five sensual organs), Manasu(mind), Buddi(intellect) and Jivaatma (individual self). Having withdrawn these seven types of Prana Sakti/ Jhnanam, the Saadhaka should consolidate them in to one and finally the Saadhaka should unite the consolidated Sakti/Jhnanam with its origin Eswara Sakti/Eswara Jhnanam (Atma Sakti/Atma Jhnanam).
