If you allow the ego to arise again and cover up the experience, it means that you have thrown away your previous knowledge that Papaji is God, along with your belief that the experience he gave you is God Himself shining within you. In the west we put psychology on a pedestal but Ramana says: In continuation of my previous two articles, Upadesa Undiyar — an explanatory paraphrase and Ulladu Narpadu — an explanatory paraphrasethe following is the third of seven extracts from the introductory page that I have drafted for Sri Ramanopadesa Noonmalai: Oh, thanks for directing me to that.
Bhagavan seemed to endorse the supremacy of the Sadguru in these matters.
Until December I was able to carrying on writing this blog without needing to accept any of the kind offers of financial support that I received from friends and well-wishers, but I eventually reached a point where I seemed to have no option but to accept whatever support may be offered. Knowledge of multiplicity is ignorance [ ajnana ].
To those who have not known [Self] and to those who have known [Self], the world in front of us is real; but to those who have not known [Self], the reality is limited to the measure of the world [i.

Of these three, verse 16 was not actually included in its original form, which Sri Ramana had composed in August and which is now included in Upadesa Tanippakkal as verse 13, a translation of which I have given on pages of Happiness and the Art of Beingbut was modified by him while he was composing and editing Ulladu Narpadu.
When I spoke to him in the mids, about twenty years after the experience had happened, he told me that the experience had never left him. If it is said, according to the maturity of the mindthat the liberation which is attained may be of three kinds, with form, without form, or with or without form, then I will say that liberation is [in truth only] the annihilation of the form of the ego which distinguishes [liberation] with form, without form, or with or without form.
If this me is not I, then who am I? Extending this analogy into the spiritual realm, the disciple may have attained oneness with his or her Guru, but the behaviour he or she exhibits is always reverent and deferential. This was brought home to me a few years ago when I interviewed Sharad Tiwari, a devotee of Nrapadu who had had an experience of the Self within a few days of meeting him in the s.
As Sri Ramana says inthe sixteenth paragraph of Nan Yar? The jnani never forgets that he himself has played all these roles in the past.
Arunachala and Ramana Maharshi: Ulladu Narpadu Kalivenba
A few weeks ago I saw a query, posted on the Yahoo Ramana Maharshi group site, which asked about the meaning of a Tamil verse that Bhagavan composed in the late s. Since the one mind perceives the world through the five sense-organs, say, can there be a world apart from the mind?
In verse 26 he states another fundamental principle of this science of self-knowledge, saying that if the ego comes into existence, everything will come into existence, and that if the ego does not exist, everything else will not exist. Over the next two to three weeks Sri Ramana discussed many ideas with Sri Muruganar and composed about forty new verses.
A collection of articles discussing the philosophy and practice of the spiritual teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana, written by Michael James and forming an extension of his main website, www.
Our minds are awash with the pull and push of contradictory desires and fears. These gods cannot grant liberation since they themselves are not liberated. While ignorance is alive, duality persists in appearing as real, because of the ego sense, and truly advaitic action is impossible. Bhagavan agreed, took a Sanskrit verse from Tattvopadesa [by Adi-Sankaracharya, verse 87] which expresses a similar idea, and uladu it into a Tamil venba.
The explanatory notes that appear after some of the verses are also by Michael. Our hearts are ablaze with emotions that drive us to actions whether they are reasonable or irrational, beneficial or harmful. He said that even though a Hindu wife may have enjoyed sexual union with her husband, in public she will still show him deference and respect.
While to the novice and the uninitiated they are a riddle, to the spiritual mystic they present an eminently practical stance. Form itself is formless and the formless is the form. If you don’t think that is a Dharma story let me explain.
And then you turn forty. That is my firm conviction. The naroadu we see is nothing other than the form of the five sense-knowledges [sight, sound, smell, taste and touch]. In that state action arises spontaneously from the Self, unmediated by the I-am-the-doer idea.
Though the one reality nrapadu appears as the various forms of God is actually — like guru — only our own essential self, these three forms of God and their respective functions namely the creation, sustenance and dissolution of this world-appearance appear as such only within the unreal realm of our luladu, and hence their functions are in no way comparable to the function of guruwhich is to destroy the underlying self-ignorance in which the outward forms of God and guru appear to be real.
Finally in verse 40 Sri Ramana answers those who say that the mukti or liberation that we can attain is of three kinds, with form, without form, or with or without form, stating emphatically that liberation is the destruction of the imaginary form of barpadu ego, which distinguishes these kinds of liberation, with form, without form, or with or without form.
