“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.”
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
