My Master's Feet O River Ganges...

This poem glorifies the Master, Sri Ramana Maharshi's Feet as more sacred than the River Ganges. While it is a belief that the River makes one pure of one's vices, the Master's Feet takes one beyond virtue and vice to experience ultimate freedom.


O ancient river, purity's door, Multitudes march to Thy shore, Your holy waters wash the sins to emerge clear, While my Master's Feet bestows it now and here!
In your waters, breath arrested, heads dip and rise, To remove the accumulated vice, But virtue adds ensuring continuity, At my Master's Feet dissolves both in eternity.
Arising from Shiva's locks, You make pure of those who flock, But seeds of deeds after, impregnated in future, At my Master's Feet no space nor time, No seeds to nurture.
Virtue and vice arise from ego(individual self), Traced back to the source to forgo,        The phantom ego which emerge from the heart, With it the two dissolve in, from the place of start.
My Master's Feet, O Ganges, It is but the He…

The Twisted Mind and the Truth!

'The Twisted Mind and the Truth' is based on a little, but power packed story dedicated to seekers of truth and those who really value a good night's sleep.




A little boy had some good marbles with him. A little girl had some sweets with her. When they were  playing together, the boy asked for an exchange of the marbles with the sweets to the girl. The girl readily consented. The boy cunningly, retained the best marble and exchanged the rest with the girl for her sweets. The girl gave away all her sweets without retaining any, unlike the boy. That night, the girl went to sleep peacefully, but the boy twisted in his bed wondering if the girl had also kept away the best sweet from him!
The moral of the story goes that in any relationship, it is important to maintain trust without which there is no meaning in it. If not we will end up doubting the other, as the nature of our own mind determines the understanding of things.
A twisted mind fails to see the truth. It is a product…

The Illusory World When It Becomes a Reality!

Just a shift in our perception of ourselves can bring about a change in how we look at the world.



The Illusory nature of the world can be understood by first-hand experience from our day to day life of  the waking state, dream state and the deep sleep state, the three states in Consciousness.
We actually perceive and experience the world through the mind. Our mind is nothing but a collection of thoughts, which have the ‘I thought’ as the primary thought. The ‘I thought’ is an impostor that springs from Consciousness donning the appearance of Consciousness, which is the REAL I. If but for the thoughts, there is no such thing called the mind, states Ramana Maharshi.In deep sleep, the mind is lost along with the world, but when we wake up, the individual self (identification with the body and the mind), or the ‘I thought’ rises after which we begin to experience the world for the day.
When we view the world as the individual self or the ‘I thought’ in the waking state, we look at it as …
