Forgetting Self, which gives you (the seer) light to see, does not run after the appearance (the world which you see) totally confused. The appearance will disappear and is hence not real; but Self, the source of you (the seer) can never disappear. So, Know that ‘That’ alone is real.

- Vers 25

 

In the Presence of the Lord (who ever shines as “I am” in every one) who has intentions of His own, the embodied Jivas busy themselves outwardly, treading on many courses of action and reap the fruits with justly result, until finally (realizing the futility of actions) they turn Self-ward and attain Liberation.

- Vers 108

 

The ship will be destroyed by the storm, if its sails were spread outside. But it is safe when its anchor is sunk deep into the sea. Similarly, if the mind were sunk deep in the Heart, instead of being spread outside, that is Jnana.

- Vers 19

 

The Self Consciousness (Sat-Chit) which shines in all, as All, is the Guru.

- Vers 27

 

Having known for certain that everything which is seen, without the least exception is only a dream and that it ( the seen) does not exist without the seer, turn only towards the Self – Sat-Chit-Ananda- without attending to the world of names and forms, which is only a mental conception.

- Vers 293

Guruvachaka Kovai is the recording in verses by Sri Muruganar, of the sayings in the Presence of Sri Bhagavan Ramana. The verses were verified and edited by Sri Bhagavan. We are trying to publish some of the interesting verses for readers this week

Will that which is perceived by the senses of this unreal body be real or unreal? O the mind, worried and wearied by the worldly ways, evaluate the matter through careful investigation and reply!

-Verse 68

Those who have realized that Prarabdha (Fate) will take care of the body, will not feel anxious and wander about seeking food and so on. All the enjoyments ordained by Prarabdha will surely come. Hence it is clear that craving and rejecting (likes and dislikes) are the deluding acts of mind.

-Verse 150

Listen! There is a wonder! People cannot even think unless prompted by the all embracing and impartial Chit Sakthi (the power of consciousness) that her benevelonce towards all. Here in this world, the jumping about of people excited by the feeling “I will accomplish this!” is a great wonder.

-Verse 168

O mind, do not waste your life in roaming outside pursuing wonders and courting sense pleasures; To know the Self through grace and thus abide firmly in the heart is alone worthwhile

– Verse 188

To my repeated Prayers , O, my Lord Ramana, Ramana, Ramana, please graciously come and be seated in my Heart, Lord Ramana told me, “from where am I to come? I am there in you (your Heart) already. Just be quiet. You will know me automatically”.

Sri Ramana Jnana Bodham by Sri Muruganar - Part 5, verse 574

 

The very attachment (mad love) on my Lord Ramana, stopped rising of any other desires for the worldly things and held me with Him tight.
