10 important Life Lessons Ramana Maharishi

Every word out of Bhagwan Shri Ramana Maharishi is a life lesson, here are the 10 important Life lessons from Bhagwan.

1. Happiness

“Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.”

2. Silence

“Whatever is destined not to happen will not happen, try as you may. Whatever is destined to happen will happen, do what you may to prevent it. This is certain. The best course, therefore, is to remain silent.”

3. Feelings

“Thoughts come and go. Feelings come and go. Find out what it is that remains.”

4. Correcting Oneself

“Correcting oneself is correcting the whole world. The Sun is simply bright. It does not correct anyone. Because it shines, the whole world is full of light. Transforming yourself is a means of giving light to the whole world.”

5. Trouble

“Why should you trouble yourself about the future? You do not even properly know about the present. Take care of the present, the future will take care of itself.”

6.  Who am I ?

“The question ‘Who am I?’ is not really meant to get an answer, the question ‘Who am I?’ is meant to dissolve the questioner.”

7. Peace

“Silence is truth. Silence is bliss. Silence is peace. And hence Silence is the Self.”

8. Future

“There is neither past nor future. There is only the present. Yesterday was the present to you when you experienced it, and tomorrow will be also the present when you experience it. Therefore, experience takes place only in the present, and beyond experience nothing exists.”

9. Spirit

“Your true nature is that of infinite spirit. The feeling of limitation is the work of the mind.”

10. Awareness

“You are awareness. Awareness is another name for you. Since you are awareness there is no need to attain or cultivate it. All that you have to do is to give up being aware of other things, that is of the not-Self. If one gives up being aware of them then pure awareness alone remains, and that is the Self.”

Happiness is your Nature – Bhagwan Sri Ramanar

Happiness is your Nature – Bhagwan Sri Ramanar

 

‘Happiness is your Nature, it is not wrong to Desire it’ – Bhagwan Sri Ramanar

 

Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharishi is one of very few Legends who never travelled but has followers from all over the world. The first question that arises in our mind after hearing this is ‘How is it possible?’. It is very simple Bhagwan Ramanar wanted everyone to be Happy and lead a happy life, he never imposed any rule for his followers.

He simply told people to find their inner self which he considered God. He told the world to search God within and he said only in Happiness we can find God. When the whole world was turning topsy turvy in search of God, bhagwan simply said God is with in you, be happy do good, stay calm you will find or you will realise the God within you.

 

When many advised to throw everything of one’s worldly pleasures Ramanar was the only person who told it is not necessary for one to disown his happiness to find God or divinity. This simple yet great philosophy brought thousands to the divine land of Tiruvannamalai. 

 

Tiruvannamalai is a land of serenity and peace where you will find the God within you just like Ramanar.

Thiruvannamalai hill is as such the Adhi Linga the Fire of Lord Shiva himself. Thiruvannamalai is much greater than just a town.

It was Lord Shiva who himself appeared as a huge ball of Fire lighting up the world which went into darkness and he remained there as Lord Arunachaleshwarar. People during the Pournami Day (Full Moon Day) walk bare footed all along the mountain praying to Shiva Himself which is called Giri Valam.

All along the Girivalm path we will find great Sadhus and Sithars who come from all around the world leaving back their worldly pleasures seeking the blessings of Lord Arunachaleshwarar.

Tiruvannamalai is not Hill but a Deity by itself

There are many sacred mountains around the World and especially in Hinduism where the Deity is always at the top of the mountain, for instance take Tirupati where Lord Venkateshwara is on the top of the Holy Mountain but in Tiruvannamalai the Temple of Lord Arunachaleshwarar is on the Foot of the Mountain. In Tiruvannamalai the Sacred Mountain is itself the Sanctum Sanatorium.

In Thiruvannmalai Lord Shiva is worshipped by climbing his Holy Mountain bare footed and that is called ‘Girivalam’ in Tamil which translates to Giri- Mountain & Valam going around. In Sanskrit it is called as Giripradikshina. Climbing the mountain on a Full moon day is the most sacred event in Thiruvannamalai.

The great Devine Poet Arunagirinathar says ‘Be they of lowly birth, without the advantage of learning, unable to practise the virtue of liberality, it is of no account. Those who perform pradakshina of holy Aruna, the Supreme, submit to his rule and become his devotee, will excel even amongst the most excellent . . .’

The path of Girivalams has lot of small Shrines and Lingas all over, even today Sidhars are believed to live there in the mountains.  On every Pournami Day (Full Moon) lakhs of devotees throng the town of Tiruvannamalai to worship the Aadhi Linga which is the Mountain itself.No where else in the world a whole mass of land is considered holy and worshiped as God.

During the month of Karthigai to commemorate Lord Arunachala the God of Fire, a huge Deepam (Lamp) is lit on top of the Arunachala Hill. On Karthigai Deepam Lord Shiva is said to come to earth spreading light to the already darkened world.

Living in Tiruvannamalai is nothing but living on the feet of God himself to find ourselves that is nothing but finding Arunachala in us. Many great saints such as Bhagawan Sri Ramana Maharishi settled on the foothills just to experience God in him.
