“There reigns perfect peace when Thou showerest nectar by Thy pellucid, moon-like, gentle smile;

life pours forth from the incomparable Grace of Thy steady and shining eyes;

Thy unswerving abidance as the Self in the Heart-lotus sheds irresistible glory all around;

O Ramana! What kind of silence is this?

It has no parallel on earth, My Lord!”

~Kavyakanta Ganapathi Muni

 

 

“How could an adequate description of such a guru ever be given?

He reveals, He liberates, He illumines, He leads. As He said:

He pushes from the outside, He pulls from the inside.

He shines, He graces, He blesses, and more; all of that continuously.

In fact, should we get the ability to comprehend such a Guru,

the mind stops.”

~Nome

 

 

Oh! By your grace, all the doubts of the mind

Disappeared in a moment.

Oh! By your grace, mundane misery and attachments

All disappeared in a moment.

Oh! By your grace, not only the world, the individuals (jiva-s),

      and the Supreme,

But the delusion that arises, disappeared.

Oh! By your grace, the changeless certitude that all is Brahman

Has permanently taken root.

- The Song of Ribhu, 39:14
