RAMANA MAHARISHI

One day Ramana Maharishi was to give a lecture under a tree..Many people gathered eargerly to hear him.One among them was a foreigner.He was sitting on a high level seat than Maharishi’s seat.

Maharishi’s asistant asked the foreigner who was sitting on a higher level seat to sit down,but the foreigner refused by saying that he had knee problem

The assistant asked him to sit somewhere elese and not in fornt of Maharishi

The foreigner vacated the seat at a distant place.Maharishi asked the assistant why the foreigner has vacated the seat, the asistant explained the reason

Maharishi said look up the tree ,”what do you see? The assistant said Lot of Monkeys are there on the tree.Maharishi said, when there are lot of monkeys above the level of my seat,hearing my lecture.Why can’t a foreigner listen to my lecture sitting on a higher level seat.You can’t drive away all the Monkey’s

INVOLVEMENT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN FORMALITIES

So,you go and call him back and make him sit in the same place where he was sitting beforeFully-Restored-Photos_Sri-Ramana-Maharshi-12

Thirupukazh

TRUE BHAKTHI

We all know about Bhakthi yoga.The other yoga’s are Karma yoga and gana yoga.Some people also follow Raja yoga.Bhakthi Yoga is very simple to follow .

Arunagiri nathar wanted to commit suicicde by jumping from a twoer in Thiruvannamalai

At that time Lord Muruga stopped him from commiting suicide and asked him to sing in praise of him.And he started the first line of Thirupukazh

Muttaitaru Bhakti Tirunakai Attikkirai Shakti Sharavana
Muttikkoru Vittu Guru Para Ena Odum

Arunagiri nathar immediatly picked up the word and started singing Thirupukazh.So,we can say Thirupukazh birth place is Thiruvannamalai

There was a poet in Thiruvannamalai who sang in praise of Kali.He called himself a Kali Bhaktha.When he met Arunagiri he said

“I am ready to invoke Kali inforont of us,
Are you ready to invoke Muruga infront of us?”

Arunagiri started singing a song in praise of Lord Muruga “Athala Seda Narada” and Kali Bhaktha chanted some mantras to invoke Kali devi.

Lord Muruga broke pillar and came out of it,but kali did not appear at all.She knew that her bhakthi was not a real bhakthi

When we sing a prayer to god it should not be a show off

Prayer should be done in concentration.God will appear or do things for us.If we pray him with true bhakthi

“BHAKTHI IS A VERY POWERFUL SHAKTHI WHICH GIVE US MUKTHI”ARUNAGIRI NATHAR

SARADA NAVARATHRI – 6

KANYAKUMARI

Banasura was a demon who did mpenance towards Brahma and asked for free from Death.brahma said “Death is sure for all creations but he would live till a spinster (Kanni) would become the cause of his death”

Banasura taught “What a weak woman can do” with this belief he started doing harm to people.Parvathy could not tolerate the suffering of her children and took avathar as “Bakavathi” and did penance to get strength to destroy Banasura the demon

In the meantime Narada maharishi met Lord Siva and describe the beauty of Bakavathi (parvathy) Lord siva decided to marry Bagavathi.Narada expressed Lord siva’s intention to Bakavathi,Bakavathi refused to marry Lord siva because she could will the demon Banasura only when she is in the form of a spinster or kanni

Bakavathi accepted to many Lord siva on the following conditions

a. he should come in the early morning
b.he should come with a beetle without a Kambu (tail)
c.A cane without Kanu (divider)
d.A cocount without eye

As soon as Lord siva heard these conditions from Narada Maharishi he collected all these things and started his journey to Kumari

In order to protect his marriage Narada took a shape of cock and announced the rrival of morning.On hearing the cock Lord siva returned back to his place

Bakavathi devi destoroyed Banasura the demon and hailed the flag of victory

if we worship Bakavathi Even stone hearted person will be filled with joy

Navarathri

SARADHA NAVARATHRI PART 5

NAVARATHRI SUBBHARATHRI

Proper days should be selelcted for doing good things or subbha karya

navarathri period is considered to be a period to do spiritual things

The philosophy of Navarathri Gollu reflects the philosophy of life.That is develop in our life step by step from lower status to higher status.

In the first step we display trees,plants etc.At the top most step we place God’s and Kalasa.So,we should understand that life is a steady develoopment.We should not go downwards from human level we should raise ourself to Mahan level and then to level of god and finally merge with Sakthi.

That is JEEVATHMA AND PARAMATHMA should merge togeather

These philosophies are represented in the display of dolls
