WHAT ARE THE THREE BODIES’ VEHICLES OF IMMORTALITY?
In the path of Suddha Sanmargam the three bodies are: suddha deham, pranava deham and gnana deham.

- Suddha deham is the pure physical body which becomes golden white ”every
cells realize the compassionate love body ”. As soon as the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies are far from impure illusions the supra consciousness forces are realized, they are called karma shiddhis. For Vallalar these siddhis can only be reached when we attain Suddha deham.
The realization of Suddha deham is the first step of sadhana, which is to make the body pure, so He can become a fit Divine instrument. Most people think that the body is not important on a spiritual journey, this is a wrong idea. All the suffering a Being can experience goes trough the physical body. If the body is not made pure the suffering will continue. How can we speak about God and having a spiritual life when we are not able to respect our own body? The body is God Himself, each cell contain God’s Light and memory! We create so many stressful situations, eat meat and non natural food, drink, smoke, stimulate ourselves with diverse drugs, all this create degradation to the body.
At first we must change our habits toward a healthy life style, with good vegetarian diet, proper exercise, right thinking and proper actions.

- Pranava deham is the development of the Divine Godhead “in the subtle body
we realize the Grace body” in diverse traditions we can find the golden sphere presence which surround the head of a Saint. Vallalar says that the psychic head is made of a very refined brain, this brain is called Omkara brain, the other brain which is more ordinary is called Ankara. It is the body of Light made of pure bliss and joy. This body is located above the head. Pranava deham is called the Grace body, because Grace is pure bliss, joy and compassionate love.
The development of Omkara acts as a direct receptive station with the cosmic
consciousness.
This station passes on the messages to the more gross brain. This type of
development is only possible when the vital “the lower being” is not any more the master and that the mental is able to maintain certain purity. Letting the Divine consciousness enter in the brain, this one develop itself more and more. Each cell receives this message then the transformation is taking place. At this time it is possible to go beyond the diverse veils of maya.
This prosperous and expansive body is also called Omkara body. The
development of this body allows you to go beyond the established gross principles of nature. The subtle body starts to grow to the size of a golden mountain, the physical body transforms itself into the body of a five to eight years old child, the sixty four siddhis become on the control of the yogi. This body can’t be perceived by the touch and the sight.

Nb: Vallalar’s wooden sandals are the size of a child foot. He had to put the
white cloth over him so we could see his body’ shape. All the photos which were taken of him didn’t show his presence.
It is possible to experiment the Pranava Deham body by doing Ambalam Kryia
yoga technique, in this body you experiment great joy, bliss and compassionate love. It will appear at first that there is a duality between the physical body and the Grace body.
Slowly as the physical body becomes more pure the duality diminishes. When Vallalar speak about the realization of the Pranava Deham body, he mean that this Grace body is fully integrated into the physical body.

- Gnana deham is the transformation of the pranava boby into a gnostic body “in the causal body we realize the body of the One, the light beyond light, the form beyond form. ” With the third eye function and this development, the body eliminates all sorts of impurities and become almost invisible. Such a body appears like a fire ball or a fire pillar. With the practice of Jeava Karunai, the practice of absolute compassion, this body receives Grace. This Grace allows him to obtain the same powers and qualities of God.

As the physical matter as become pure Grace Light, there is no more limitation coming from the physical matter.

Treatise on worldly blissful life, celestial bliss life and Supreme blissful life.

The worldly life pleasures and bliss limits the development of the body and mind with and only gives a short period of enjoyment.
The best worldly life is the one of a good union: husband and wife, with intelligent and balance children.
All family members are avoiding any sort of disability in body, mind, enjoyment and knowledge.

The qualities of such a family is Love, Compassion, discipline, self control, endurance, truth speaking and purity of thought and action with bring respect.

Celestial bliss life is a little superior in body and mind enjoyment and gives some occult powers.

Supreme blissful life is manifested trough every thing: the body, the mind, the cosmos enjoyment and the Grace power, this without any impediment of time space, manner and measure.

The glory of blissful life is total transformation of the body, skin, nerves, bones, muscles, blood, semen…

Asuddha maya elemental body transform into a golden pure elemental body of infinite fineness and is shining both: visible and ultimately invisible.
The transform body could not be affected or attack by stones, soil or any solid matter, both internally or externally.

- The water could not immerse the body externally or internally, the body can’t get wet.
- The fire cannot burn the body .
- The air can’t move the body or affect it externally.
- Even ether can’t be infuse externally or internally.
- Gravitation as no effect on the body. He can float any where.
- No cosmic rays can affect such a body.
This transformation is only possible with de descent of the Vast Grace light or Arut Perum Jothi into the body bringing extra sensual perception of clairaudience, clairsentience, clairvision, clairkinesis.

The hands and legs can move and act any where…

There is complete mastery over maya or illusion.
With this body every thing is possible, it is the embodiment of God upon earth.
Like milk contains butter when you churn it and comes out, it is the same with the melted soul which manifest Grace.

At the beginning of creation all human being had the same faculties of Knowledge, Divine expression of Love, Compassion and enjoyment.

They forgot God commend and discipline and in consequence a second creation came where all Being had to go through the law of karma.

Different types of persons and bodies came to birth according to their past memories, effort and action taken to fulfill God’ Law.

God is compassion and justice and ultimately He gives the perfect bliss for all.
All the pass experiences are hidden by the multi color screen Chit Shakti.

JEEVA KAARUNYA OZHUKKAM
The discipline of living compassion,
For a better understanding the translation is adapted by Dhayanithi Mesrobian.

Revealed on the 23rd may 1867 for the opening of Dharmasalai kitchen fire.
Dear all Jeeva Karunai is like doing an action and getting benefit out of it.
Life is short, it is necessary to make a quick effort right now.
The goal of human life is to get self realization with body transformation leading to Divine oneness and to get eternal blissful life without any impediment of time space, condition, any manner or measure.
To attain this it is necessary to gain the Supreme perfect Grace power ( Arul Shakti), which causes all the cosmic bodies with all material things as well as living beings to manifest Divine creation and protection.
Grace power is operated by the self existing entity, reality or truth (Sathyam), which reveals enlightenment and bliss at the Divine and the soul levels.
It is only with the perfect Divine enlightenment along with the perfect bliss experience that the goal is to be attained.
For gaining the Grace power there is no other way than the discipline of living
compassion.
The Grace power implies God’s Mercy or the Supreme Compassion which is enlightenment with bliss or greater intelligence with soul delight.
The Divine and the Soul manifestation are harmonious and identical, because they are homogenous meaning they come from the same source of Supreme Consciousness.
By experiencing the diverse manifestation of the Being we are going toward the
manifestation of Divine qualities because those qualities are similar and express
themselves at diverse levels of experiences: the positive expression of the Being and the manifestation of the qualities of the soul which are goodness and wisdom.
Other religious or intuitional paths lead only to illusion and darkness because they are taking you away from the real nature of the soul.
Through the practice of Jeeva Karunya, Soul Love and Knowledge will manifest
spontaneously.
Love and Knowledge will empower you to manifest the absolute Compassion.
When you obtain Love and Knowledge first, you can have the right attitude towards all Beings: the real expression of compassion will manifest with all benefits and prosperities.
You must practice this with full awareness, experiencing the Divine perfection.
To be able to understand the meaning of compassion it is necessary to recognize the suffering and the joy in oneself and in others; this brings the mellowing and meting of the soul, inducing to develop causal fire (the inner Christ).
The utmost suffering is hunger, thirst, diseases, desires, poverty, fear and murder; those are to be recognize through your perception and your vision, so you realize the
fundamental necessity of living compassion based on universal fraternity, acknowledging that we are coming from the same source, the same Divine Father and Mother.
This is difficult to understand because the soul is clouded by impurities.
You must clean the thick glass of the mind and make it thin.
You must brighten the intelligence.
Why do we care about suffering?
It’s because the conscious soul undergoes suffering: mind and body are the instrumental cause of the soul suffering.
Why there is so much suffering in the world?
Because compassion is not been revealed or manifested.
The soul can be compared to the resident of a house, the body and the mind to the component of a house, only the resident can enjoy the house but not the house!
The body is like a rented house, the daily rent is the food we give to the body, only by God Grace we can make this body rent free or going without food.
If we leave the body we need to found an other one: go to an other house.
We know now that it is in our hands and responsibility to create our future incarnation and have the knowledge of our previous birth.
When we change house our enemies will remain present; in the same way when we change body our past karma or memories will remain ( nb: there is no karma but only past memories, the principle of karma has been created by the Human Being and not God).
When we trespass the Divine laws we live difficult experiences; but those are lessons from witch we learn; in His great Compassion God is showing us the right actions that allows us to grow, to transform our Being, so we can understand and respect the Divine Laws.
In future when Grace and Compassion will rule upon earth even poison snakes, tigers will loose they violent nature.
Compassion is not only a sadhana but a manifestation of the nature of the soul and the Divine.
When this compassion as become a natural expression, it is considerate as true.
If you are able to remain into your natural, primordial state sadhana is not require.
Soul and God are conscious Light, the soul can’t manifest consciousness without the physical body which is made with Maya or illusion. Maya create the hunger, desire, thirst, disease, poverty, fear and murder.
The suffering caused by Maya comes from a lack of consciousness.
If we put an intelligent effort, we know that God give to each individual the freedom to avoid and eradicate all this; for this reason it is important to transmit the knowledge of the effects of Maya to those who suffer, so they can develop more Knowledge.
When we do an action of Compassion remaining in our natural state God will answer by His Grace.
When you give with joy to a Being, it will come back to you directly.
It is notice that the higher form of suffering is coming from hunger and murder, because our faculties are totally altered by it.
If it is not possible to do act of compassion directly, it is important to express it through the power of our intention and let our heart speak for the benefit of all Beings.
When a person is taking food all his senses and his Being become receptive; at this moment one as the potentiality to receive some message and guidance because his Being is fully receptive: those messages will help him to come out of the chain of suffering, become aware.
Like this feeding the needed at all levels is a chance to put them on the right track by opening them to a little consciousness. (nb: feeding the needed is not limited with food, the biggest hunger in our days is the one of spiritual food).
Only this kind of Jeeva Karunai gives you the ultimate siddhi and the ultimo salvation.
The human body is not easy to get, only in this human body both Soul enlightenment and God’ manifestation is possible.
If we do not take the chance now there is no certainty that we can obtain a human body again.
The Human body is the only one who can achieve the eternal transformation into a body of light.
The other type of life form coming from diverse dimensions do not have this gift, in the same way the human life is the only one who can achieve absolute knowledge.
This is the reason why God has ordered to save this body from starvation and violence; this is related to our body and all life form.
The food you are taking must be suitable and in harmony with your entire Being, so that it can give strength to the body and mind. Meaning you must be master of yourself and know what is right for you or not.
The food carries the memories from the person preparing and giving it; if we take this food unconsciously we are absorbing the memories and the vibrations of this person.
It is important to do our best for relieving the suffering at first from hunger then
preventing from murder and killing: Let’s try our best to abolish this type of suffering, it is a must.
The other types of suffering mentioned above are secondary.
Killing animals and flesh eating is against the will of God, because killing stop the development of consciousness, both at the Divine and Soul level.
Violated food gives you the experience of dark forces.
The called satisfaction coming from flesh eating is just an illusion, Maya. Even cats and dogs can become vegetarian.
Even the plants have life, but when we eat them they are not completely destructed because their seeds and fruits have only the sense of touch. Seeds are vehicle of life and not life keepers.
So in vegetarian diet there is no life taking, this will not obstruct the access to
Knowledge.
When the seeds are sprouting they give life; it is important to not disturb them, we should feed them with water.
Starvation diminish individual and Divine knowledge which are complementary, the male and female faculties shrink, the quality of the mind change, the decision making is affected, the prana is shacked, all body element are scorch, eye vision diminish…So we can understand that suffering from hunger is the highest of all and must be eradicate.
Giving proper food will help all faculties to flourish and give great bliss.
Feeding with Knowledge is an instrument for expressing and manifesting Compassion.
Do this kind of service when you steel have the strength to do it, it will always help you to do so.
Compassion is the key to open the gate of heaven.
Many sadhana lead only to the gates of heaven, you must gain the key of Compassion at proper time.

If you gain the key all sadhana are transcended.
Compassion itself contains all the diverse path towards God realization.
Compassion itself is the real worship and prayer, all the other types of worship gives only knowledge which brings you towards compassion which is not the Compassion.
If you have Compassion even with sexual and food enjoyment you can receive God Grace.
This is not the case with yogis, sanyasin, priest and others like it is said in the Vedas that only the ones who have renounced can receive God’s Grace; all this is illusion without Compassion.
First you need to express Compassion within the family and in you, then you can carry it outside.
Compassion with Knowledge is the ultimate aim which brings you prosperity, health,
total abundance…Ultimately all dangers including destiny of death can be overcome.
All the benefits coming from actions that one undertakes are only coming back to yourself.
Do not be distract, detoured by others impediment, even the ones coming from our close ones.
Even a Being with low capacities is worship by Devas, Siddhas yoga… when he practice
Compassion with Knowledge.
This is True by Gods command.

It would appear that towards the end of his Karunguzhi years, with the
founding of the Sanmarga Sangam, Vallalar felt that he had sufficiently prepared
himself for his mission in life. He spoke like any inspired prophet, with a sense of
his mission derived from God and from his living in God:

The Lord sent me to this world to help men that abuse the earth,
Blotches of black within and white without,
to restore them and set them on the path
of the high quest, so that they may attain
the fulfillment of the soul on the earth here and now.
For this He blessed me with His Grace.

He gave his call in no uncertain terms:

Men of the world, you have missed the truth
Your body was fed on rot, your mind remain only at a surface level
Your learning goes down, your joy is deception
Your ear listen only to the tribal
Your sight only look at the past
Hear the truth of the common final path
Seek the Grace so you may gain a life of rejoice and an undying body.

And again:

I say only what the Lord tells me,
no words plus or minus
Indeed, by myself, what wisdom do I have
but what the Lord gives me?

He avoided flesh-eating as something fundamentally cruel and unspiritual, and
banned flesh-eaters from his Fellowship. He averred that he received this intimation directly from God:

Lord of Grace who counseled me,
‘Keep me aloof from killers of life
and feeders on meat. They are aliens
to you. Hold no rapport with them
nor any tie with them, except
to save them from hunger, if needed to be,
true to compassion, with compassion
unfailing to all life, swear, O swear!
Lord of resounding glory, Lord of Mercy,
Dancing for the common wealth, glory to You.
He emphatically repudiated flesh-eating:
The miracle-working adept,
Though he may change a man
into a girl, and that girl, freshly risen in beauty,
Back to a virile man in a trice,
Though he may raise men from the dead,
I swear by my Master, I swear
by God’s effulgent Flame,
If he be thinking, in his merciless mind,
To eat and feed on a body that was house of life,
Him I do not hold in reverence.

He expressed himself against animal sacrifice:

People plant demeaning little gods
over the land, and in the names of these,
They kill sheep and swine and fowl and bulls,
Bleeding their robust lives
I am witness to this, and weary;
My reason fails, my senses reel.
The red houses of abhorrence
of these wretched little gods
I have pain in seeing it.
He prays:
Lord, grant me
to be pure compassion
Help me
to tide people over their grief and fears
Aid me
to build a world where there is no murder
and where there is no eating by killing.
Let me sing
Your glory without end—
Lord my Mother,
For this I pray.

-------
He does not have any hostile reaction to this people ideas, and do not preach
them, but instead he place his agony before God. The fact that vegetarianism exists on a considerable scale in Tamil Nadu today is largely owing to Vallalar Swamigal.

The expression of this profound compassion in his poetry reaches throbbing
poignancy. The following verses, thrown together, are taken from different
contexts:

Seeing withered corn, my spirit drooped,
Watching the wretch that begged from door to door
unavailingly, and hungry sank to sleep,
I brooded. At sight of long-racking disease
I shuddered. Starving, poor, too proud to beg,
and spirit-broken, broke me.
O Last Boon, Shining Lord of Ethereal Space,
When I hear of human creatures starving
or spent with hunger, a fear seizes me,
like a fire in the mind, quickly ablaze,
and my body shivers.
Cattle’s lowing turned hoarse
Dismayed me.
Bull and beast ill-fed
Preyed on me.
Quacking fowl and duck
Unhinged me.
Lord, when I saw the murderous knife
Dangling from the butcher’s hand,
I trembled in fear.
When people’s voices rose in squabble
A shivering came on me.
When they knocked at the door in frenzy
It jarred on me.
O Lord, you know, when some one wailed, ‘O father’ or ‘mother’ or ‘Alas’,
The words tore through me
Like an uprooting storm.
O Essence beyond the mind of man,
Final Anchor, my Master,
I, your servant, bound to my kin,
friends, comrades, mother, brothers,
sisters, others, am sore-troubled
to see passing clouds on their faces,
You know.
O Father, Splendor of the Cosmic Stage,
My God, my great Goal,
Need I tell you
the distress that sears my mind
When, in this distressful world,
Mother, comrades, friends,
People near to me, people next to me,
People removed from me,
Suffer, and I see them suffer,
Pangs of hunger, pain of disease.
Scorching afflictions,
Lord, You do know.
Lord, whose dance is blessing
Seed and fruit of final being,
In this passing show of life
Choked by grievous want,
When greyed people and young people ,
known and unknown, recount to me
their trials and tribulations,
My mind trembles and splinters,
Lord, You do know.

Lord of all, Supreme Effulgent Grace! Grant that henceforth our minds are not tainted
with ritualistic and other aberrations of creeds and sects, cultural and other aberrations of castes and codes.

Let the awareness of the identity of the soul universal right to love and to be loved by all beings, which is the prime gold of the pure spiritual seeker, not forsake us at any time in any degree, in any manner, in any place. Let it ever illumine and move us.

God of Shining Light, we thank You for Your mercy, we thank You.

People must realize that they must hasten to bring to fruition the rare chance of human birth given to them.

That fruition consists in gaining the joy of awareness of the pure Effulgent Grace that
shows through all lives, all deeds, all things, all worlds, and thus in gaining the highest life that is not impeded at any time in any way by anything.
The way to attain this life and this joy is through gaining the Grace which is the natural quality of God.

There is only one way to attain this Grace, and no other. It is to make the Grace which is the natural quality of God one’s own natural quality. What is Grace in God is
compassion for Life in man.

To Vallalar’s compassion we have devoted one full section already.
Vallalar’s path of Suddha Sanmargam could be described as a “path of infinite
compassion, knowledge and felicity”.’ He made it the essential and the single step in
soul making and God-becoming, His views have never been heard before.

"I wish for the great man who is filled with grace who shall all. I shall serve them so they can become the embodiment of Grace Light themselves.
I wish that man whose essence is mercy,
Who sees all life as his own, let him be lighted into the truth and I will
keep him into my soul as God’s children’s.
Whenever I ate appetizing food ,my mind trembled with fear
Wondering what suffering will come out of this joy,
And, therefore often remained with an empty gnawing stomach.
Oh my father I receive whatever loving friends offer me out of love and
saying:
“Alas, Oh God, do not let me suffer by these”,
I ate the things with fear in my mind with the awaiting consequences."

Why Vallalar was eating less?
As your vibration and spiritual evolution grow more in
the divine grace, divine amrita or nectar flow in your body and come feeding everyone of your cell. As a consequence if you force yourself to eat food just by desire this will create an incompatibility inside your physical body. These are bringing suffering to the physical body due to the difference of vibration between solid food and ambrosia.

Also every time we eat our food organs have to work. Because of the over use of the inner organs we get older faster and death comes quicker.

Also it is not necessary to eat a lot. If the food is purified hundred of times then a small quantity of food should be good enough.

When our thought ceases and when there is no resistance for the descent of Grace into the diverse bodies the need of solid food will diminish and will be replaced by Divine Amrita, Divine Prana or Divine Grace Light.

He was transparently sincere, transparently humble, transparently saintly and
full of grace. The last infirmity of noble minds—the seeking of fame—also was not his.
Living in God, was self-sufficient:

"As I realized the Divine form revealed to me, I’m enjoying more and
more to integrate it within my system. I would like to be unnoticed by
the world up to when I transform myself completely into a Gnana
Deham body. But the Divine wish and will has revealed mew here I
stand now in the beginning itself. For this my mind is perturbed to
see that I’m not perfect yet."

The last achievement of man the complete conquest of mind was his. He
banished mind from him.
He emerged above the earthly plane to one of different dimensions where
we, ordinary humans, may not follow him.

He slept very little. He advised, in his instructions to his disciples, that one
should sleep only between midnight and three o’clock in the morning. In his
discourses at Mettukkuppam, he advised them to sleep only one hour a day. It is
stated that in his youth he slept three hours a day, then two hours, and then one hour,
and finally, his disciples reported that in the end he did not sleep at all. He addresses
God as ‘You who banished sleep for me’. He says he is apprehensive of sleeping:

"Supreme Light, that shines before and beyond Time,
Have you made me Yours?
I lough to the sleep that comes night or day.
It troubles me that it comes.
Unwilling I sleep; and when
I awake, I call on you and pray,
‘Lord’ when will the sleep be abolished ?"

He banishes sleep:

"Sleep, you silly Idiot, beware!
If, within half an instant of this warning,
You do not leave me, with your brood,
for good, you shall be accursed.
I’ve transcended sorrow. I’ve gained
creative will, and I rejoice, I’m not for you,
Get away and be quick! I’ve behind me
the Lord of the Golden wisdom sphere"

He always dressed in white. His dress consisted of two pieces of long cloth.
No other dress, no other color. The four great Tamil prophets of Saivism of old
were also ascetics in white. Vallalar, in one of his discourses, said:

"Ochre robe represent a struggling aspirant
man who has to fight against his own nature,
One who has subdued his nature has gained
compassion, for him white robe is fitting as a winner aspirant.."

He refers to his white dress in a verse, which describes also certain other
features :

"Shy of swinging arms,
I walked with folded hands;
Averse to be bare,
I covered body and head with white cloth ;
I cast no glance
where smartness sauntered
lest the sight offend me."

This walking picture of Vallalar brings out the quintessential man.

Furthermore:

"High-placed seats unsettled me
Sitting cross-legged seems a pose
I dare not sleep on soft bed.
When sitting on a dais, I hardly dare
to stretch down my legs.
Loud talking harrows me—
Spare me these, my mother.
Then, when I ate twice a day,
and slept a long time—you made the sleep
and food serve me for you...
And then, when I ate but once, my father,
People around, puzzled, would question me."

He declared:

"In the flood-tide
of ever-repeated and ever-relished food,
all gains of restraint and penance turn to emptiness
like tamarind thrown in running river."

disciple Velayuda Mudaliar writes (to quote Mudaliar’s original in English): ‘He
(Ramalinga Swamigal) had a strange faculty about him, witnessed very often, of
changing a carnivorous person into a vegetarian; a more glance from him seemed
enough to destroy the desire for animal food.’

of these wretched little gods
I have pain in seeing it.

When I see men feeding themselves with
vicious meat food,
It is ever-recurring grief to me;
I tremble, I faint, my flesh shrinks,
You do know my sore-troubled mind,
My exhausted mind, my Master
He expressed again and again his horror of killing:

I shuddered at the horrid killer’s
swift-descending axe on the prostrate life.
When with my eyes I saw
the terrible agony of taking life away,
or the fishermen’s net on the sand
with bait, or rope with noose, or trap,
Lord, Lord, my Father, You do know,
How, how, shall I utter my agony?

The miracle-working adept,
Though he may change a man
into a girl, and that girl, freshly risen in beauty,
Back to a virile man in a trice,
Though he may raise men from the dead,
I swear by my Master, I swear
by God’s effulgent Flame,
If he be thinking, in his merciless mind,
To eat and feed on a body that was house of life,
Him I do not hold in reverence.

Lord of Grace who counseled me,
‘Keep me aloof from killers of life
and feeders on meat. They are aliens
to you. Hold no rapport with them
nor any tie with them, except
to save them from hunger, if needed to be,
true to compassion, with compassion
unfailing to all life, swear, O swear!
Lord of resounding glory, Lord of Mercy,
Dancing for the common wealth, glory to You.

Seeing withered corn, my spirit drooped,
Watching the wretch that begged from door to door
unavailingly, and hungry sank to sleep,
I brooded. At sight of long-racking disease
I shuddered. Starving, poor, too proud to beg,
and spirit-broken, broke me.
O Last Boon, Shining Lord of Ethereal Space,
When I hear of human creatures starving
or spent with hunger, a fear seizes me,
like a fire in the mind, quickly ablaze,
and my body shivers.
Cattle’s lowing turned hoarse
Dismayed me.
Bull and beast ill-fed
Preyed on me.
Quacking fowl and duck
Unhinged me.
Lord, when I saw the murderous knife
Dangling from the butcher’s hand,
I trembled in fear.
When people’s voices rose in squabble
A shivering came on me.
When they knocked at the door in frenzy
It jarred on me.
O Lord, you know, when some one wailed, ‘O father’ or ‘mother’ or ‘Alas’,
The words tore through me
Like an uprooting storm.
O Essence beyond the mind of man,
Final Anchor, my Master,
I, your servant, bound to my kin,
friends, comrades, mother, brothers,
sisters, others, am sore-troubled
to see passing clouds on their faces,
You know.
O Father, Splendor of the Cosmic Stage,
My God, my great Goal,
Need I tell you
the distress that sears my mind
When, in this distressful world,
Mother, comrades, friends,
People near to me, people next to me,
People removed from me,
Suffer, and I see them suffer,
Pangs of hunger, pain of disease.
Scorching afflictions,
Lord, You do know.
Lord, whose dance is blessing
Seed and fruit of final being,
In this passing show of life
Choked by grievous want,
When greyed people and young people ,
known and unknown, recount to me
their trials and tribulations,
My mind trembles and splinters,
Lord, You do know.

In one of what he calls his ‘Petitions of the Supreme Effulgent Grace’ he prays:

Lord of all, Supreme Effulgent Grace! Grant that henceforth our minds are not tainted
with ritualistic and other aberrations of creeds and sects, cultural and other aberrations of
castes and codes.
Let the awareness of the identity of the soul universal right to love and to be loved by all
beings, which is the prime gold of the pure spiritual seeker, not forsake us at any time in
any degree, in any manner, in any place. Let it ever illumine and move us.
God of Shining Light, we thank You for Your mercy, we thank You.

People must realize that they must hasten to bring to fruition the rare chance of human
birth given to them.
That fruition consists in gaining the joy of awareness of the pure Effulgent Grace that
shows through all lives, all deeds, all things, all worlds, and thus in gaining the highest
life that is not impeded at any time in any way by anything.
The way to attain this life and this joy is through gaining the Grace which is the natural
quality of God.
There is only one way to attain this Grace, and no other. It is to make the Grace which is
the natural quality of God one’s own natural quality. What is Grace in God is
compassion for Life in man.

Whatever is perceived is impermanent. Whatever you hear or receive is illusory. Whatever you learnt is irrelevant. Whatever rejoices you vanishes. Whatever you eat goes out.
Whatever you drink or consume is insufficient.
Oh common people till now,
You have not understood the ultimate truth.
What is the use I tell you, you must experience it.
The truth discipline is the path of goodness and harmony.
The ultimate truth is to be realizing fully and brings you to the contemplation of the sphere of wisdom.
The deathless boon is received from my Divine father’s Grace, let us receive it.
Enjoy the delight.
