Maheswara is Nityam, Satyam and Ekam. Bhava signifies Maheswara.
Bhaavam signifies Maaheswari.
Maaheswari is Eswara Kari as Sakala Nigama Artha Gochara Kari/Veda Mata as well as Maya Ruupini as Leela Naataka Sutra Khelanakari/Vishnu Maya Vilaasini. This state is just similar to the dual role of Atomic energy. Atom signifies Eswara and Atomic energy signifies Eswari and Atomic energy is useful as well as harmful.
Accordingly Nitya Vastuvu(Eswara) or Anitya Vastuvu (temporary thing like Deham/body) is in Bhaavam at any point of time in Hrudayam (mind). As Deham(body) is a true representative of Jagath(world) , this Anitya Vastu Bhaavam/ Deha Bhaavam causes Laukika Bhaavam(worldly thought).
ANITYA VASTU BHAAVA PRABHAAVAM
Anitya Vastu Bhaavam in Hrudayam causes Vastu Drushthi (materialistic outlook) which further causes Vaancha(desires) for Saareeraka Sukhamulu(sensual pleasures But as Deham (body) is Anityam(temporary), the sensual pleasures are temporary and they end only after causing unbearable sorrow and frustration.
Mata Eswari embraces Vairagya Swarupam Eswara as Natha. Mata as Siva Kari is Nitya Ananda Kari. Due to Eswara Bhaavam, Hrudayam transforms into Chit Aakaasam/ Chith Anandam. Hence it is very much essential to have Eswara Bhaavam in Hrudayam(mind) always 24*7 especially in old age to have Sunaayaasa Maranam(death with zero pain).
ATMA BHAAVA PRABHAAVAM
Due to the Krupa(grace) of Mata Eswari only, one would have Eswara/Atma Bhaavam in Hrudayam. Due to its PraBhaavam (influence), one realizes Eswara/Atma in all Bhutamulu( living things). This enlightenment is due to the fact that Eswara Bhaavam is Poorna Bhaavam and as such there would be no scope to have any other Bhaavam in Hrudayam. Under the influence of Eswara Bhaavam, Buddi of an enlightened person embraces Viragam (Vimukta Ragam) which implies that the mind of such an enlightened person remains above AnuRagam (liking) as well as Dvesham(disliking)
As Mata is Kshuda Rupini(hunger) as well as Tushthi Rupini (perfect satisfaction) in all Bhutamulu, the above stated enlightened person by virtue of Eswara Bhaavam in Hrudayam feeds the hungry people and draws immense satisfaction while doing so.
Due to the above stated state of mind, the enlightened person undergoes Self realization . The reason being Eswara is Sarva Vyapakam and Anantam and is in Sarva Bhutamulu as Atma . Keeping this philosophy in view our Vedas lay stress and reiterate the Truth as Maha Sabdam TATSAT (You Are That).

the growing and blazing fire of the strength of Self-enquiry

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 orrected them.




69. Self-enquiry




400. Just as the creatures which come out of the bushes to save their lives, being unable to bear with the heat of the wild forest-fire, are surely burnt to death, so all the vasanas hiding in the Heart will be destroyed, being unable to stand before the growing and blazing fire of the strength of Self-enquiry.




401. The thought "Who am I?", after destroying all other thoughts, will itself finally die just like the stick which is used to stir the funeral pyre, and then the supreme Silence will prevail for ever.




Sadhu Om: Refer also to Who am I?




402. When the delusion which has veiled Self, the Light of Consciousness of unlimited Bliss [Sat-Chit-Ananda] is destroyed by the clear enquiry "Who am I?", one's own Nature will shine forth gloriously as the Atmakasha [i.e. Space of Self].




403. Just as an iron ball which is heated in fire will itself shine as fire, when the impure jiva is burnt in the fire of Self-enquiry, it will itself shine as Self.

Today people ignore the law of action and act as they please. It is easy to indulge in sinful deeds but is extremely difficult to bear the bad results they yield! Good and evil, happiness and misery, merit and sin depend on your actions. As is the action, so is the result. Hence the Upanishads teach - "Salute the action" (Tasmai Namah Karmane). Offer salutations to the actions you perform, so they become sacred, bring you good name and contribute to the welfare of the world. Since time immemorial, Bharatiyas offer respect to action, be it big or small, before undertaking it. A dancer pays her respects to the anklets she wears before commencing her performance. An illiterate lorry driver offers his obeisance to the steering wheel before driving the vehicle. Why salute the action? It is to discriminate and choose right actions and to give up the sense of ego or doership! This is the sacredness that our culture imparts to action.

Eswara Bhaki Bhaavam or Jhnana Bhaavam is like a computer program. It should run or flow as a Pravaaham(flow) in our mind as electricity is nothing but a flow of electrons.
But Bhakti Bhaavam or Jhnana Bhaavam is not running or flowing like a flow/program in our mind because our memory is full with the contents/matters connected with the sensual pleasures and the properties/features of the related materialistic objects.
Then the question arises in our mind that what are the means and the ways to delete all the contents other than Eswara Tatvam(philosophy)?
The first way is to meditate on Eswara immediately on waking up from sleep before getting mentally connected with Deham, Gruham and Lokam and before resorting to any activity. The same activity needs to be repeated so as get disconnected from Lokam, Gruham and Deham before going to sleep..
The second way is to deploy the sensual organs/sensual objects to the barest minimum during day time . If we do not use a particular sensual object for a long time , then the details of that object get deleted from our memory. This means we should have a very little interaction with the world.
The third way is to extend help to the needy people to the maximum extent without expecting any thing in return.
The fourth way is to spend more and more time in the company of people who discuss on Eswara Tatvam especially during Pradosha Samayam.
The fifth way is to enjoy the nectar of Eswara Bhakti/Jhnana Vaahini(Eswara Bhaavam/program) as a memory resident back ground process,
