Date: Oct 6 2007
Time: 10:30am – 11:30am
Topic:  Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi
Venue:  Residence of Mr. Sriram Ramanujam and Smt. Nisha Giri
Pravachana Karta: Kum. Poornima Kumarasami

Poornimaji spoke to an eager crowd of about 25 on Sri Ramana Maharshi’s teachings. She explained His basic philosophy of Self-enquiry and looking within to find the real ‘I’. But she also added the caveat that Self-enquiry was not the path for everyone. She was quite candid that Atma Vichara was not easy. She also pointed out that Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi was not against Bhakti marga and that many of his works emanate pure Bhakti. She confirmed that constantly chanting the Lord’s name will help build concentration and quiet the mind for meditation. She advocated starting with chanting loudly, and subsequently progressing to murmuring and finally to chanting mentally.

At the end of the session she answered questions from the audience. The talk concluded with a few minutes of Namakirtan.

    The goal is to realize the ultimate truth

    Every man achieves the ulitimate realization from his physical body or state and this is one achievement which cannot be measured nor can ever be imagined. This force or energy is greater than the power of prana , mind ,the blissful state experienced by mind.once an individual goes deeper into spirutuality he comes to a conclusion that it is thou and not thy who is the real form. Once we experience this state we come to a conclusion that I am an orphan yet I have everyone.
    I have no father,mother, no form , or physical existance. I am the supreme light the adichaitanya the supreme TEJAS!!!
    This is the state of complete zeroness , where it is compared to the state of god or samadhi. Here an individual atman becomes onje with the supreme paramatman
    The soul is beyond comparision of length, breast and height and time. The vedas and upanishads are not able to describe the real starte af atman. It is niether a scientific nor religious in nature. it is nither matter, compound element or atom , since it is smaller than an atom and but greater or larger than the entire planetary system. It is above any of the 5 elements and can never be persued by the 5 senses or panchendrias. Nither the gods nor the devils have known the real nature of atman.
    Then an individual will only see the real atman or supreme brahman supreme effulgence and creator of the universe ,shiva , hence forth he becomes the controler and creater of this universe and away from nature law, is nither in an animate or inanimate state what everyone call as god.
    -Sri Sri Sadguru Subbayya Swamiji
