« LIGHT »

Know The Light Within
Know the Light, your Form becomes Light;
Know the Hidden Form; you that Form become;
Know the Light's Form; you that Light become;
That Light within you to melt, He in love stands.

14. THE FIT DISCIPLE

1703. Good Disciple follows Guru like a Shadow

O! disciple true!
In virtue, truth, compassion, discrimination and love
You pursue the Holy Feet of Guru true
Constant as unto a shadow;
You then gain the nectar of Finite Jnana in its crystal clarity,
And witness the many miracles it brings in train.

14. THE FIT DISCIPLE

1702. True Disciple humbles before the Renunciate Vedantin

Vedanta is the way of renouncing desires;
And so, divert your life's course
And take to Siddhanta-Vedanta Way
And humble your head at the feet of Guru
That has renounced all in the Vedanta way
Then verily are you disciple true.

1700. ' Rules of Instruction '

Impart divine knowledge only to those fully ripe to receive it,
Taking the disciple gently to the limits of the Infinite Vast;
You facing east or south, your disciple facing west or north
Thus instruct, the Sakti of Lord centered in mind.

1698. ' The Power of Guru's Feet '

"Oh! my Holy Master!
Do grace me with your feet on my head,"
-Thus, I prayed, this day;
And as he placed his feet
All births to vanish;
This body that was blessed thus
Received Grace of Aruk Sakti
And I became a Jnani ripe,
Forever, blemish devoid.

1699. ' What comes of touch of Guru's Feet '

He is the master of the difficult paths four*;
He is the seeker incessant of Jnana divine;
And as he placed his feet on my head,
Higher and higher, my ardour in Jnana soared,
Higher and higher, my love for Gurupara welled up.

1697. Yet other qualities of Good Disciple

He scans that which divides the Real and the Unreal
He melts in the soul of this being
And with Siva's Grace to guide,
He receives Jnana in devotion true;
And he humbles himself before Lord
And seeks the bliss of His Sakti;
He is the fit one, the disciple good and true.

14. THE FIT DISCIPLE

1696. Attributes of Good Disciple

A sattvic he is;
His thoughts centered on Finite Truth;
His vision clear through conflicting faiths;
Abhorrent of recurring cycle of births;
Straight in Dharma's path he easy walks;
He, sure, is disciple good and true.

13. THE UNFIT

1668. No Grace for false Disciple

He thinks not of sundering soul's fetters,
Nor of annihilating world's desires;
He strives not to Mukti attain,
Nor aught of Tattvas and the way ahead;
But takes a wayward course,
A disciple exceeding mad;
To him is not the gift of Grace granted.

1687. ' Inner Vision ends Births '

They glimpse not the Dawn,
Nor the Spaces Vast;
Nor the Vision in Spaces;
Close your inner eyes hard
And then see;
Behold, there is the Light
That brings not another day!

1685. Tapas consumes Karma

They who stand in tapas
Consume away all Karma
In Siva they stand;
Even Celestials know this not;
They who know not Siva in tapas-standing,
Stood in tangle of births to endless sorrow condemned.

13. THE UNFIT

1682. They Know not the Mystery of Body

You beckon them, but they hearken not
The ignorant multitude they are;
The mother's milk flows sweet in the mouth,
But even the dear and near know not
How the mother's breast becomes so;
Verily, it is the Formless Being that shapes this body-form.

1674. ' Jnani is a class apart '

Siva Jnani that seeks deliverance through Jnana
Is a shrine unto himself, unique of status;
He observes mauna, and so is a Mukta and Siddha;
How can other tapasvins be like unto him?

1672. ' Siva Jnanis alone are of the Holy Order '

They truly are of Holy Order
Who have attained Sivajnana;
They truly are of Holy Order,
The rest are not;
Nor their robes holy;
They are never, never by reckoning any.

11. ROBES OF JNANA

1671. Siva Jnanis are Quiescent

They howl about unto dogs at foot of gallows;
They peck about like vultures at carrion;
They frisk about like monkeys in merriment
They of false Jnana;
But quiescent are the Siva Jnanis true,
Dead to the world, though living in body and senses.

1669. ' Perfect Jnanis speak not '

They of lowly Jnana in vain assume robes;
Filled with Grace, they of true Jnana covet it not;
The bigots of faiths are of evil Jnana;
The perfect of Jnana speak not.

11. ROBES OF JNANA

1668. Jnana is All; not Robes

Without Jnana, robe but leads to hell
Without robe, Jnana yet leads to Mukti;
When they seek Jnana,
They shall seek Lord and pray,
Their hearts robed in Jnana way.

10. HOLY ASHES

1665. Chant "Aum" and unite in Param

Fools know not what thread and tuft are;
Thread is but Vedanta, and tuft is Jnana;
Brahmins true who live in accord thus,
Shall see Jiva in Siva uniting;
Chant sacred mantra "Aum"
Add lo! the Two merge forever in One.

1659. ' Tapas-True and False '

They who perform false tapas enter hell
They shall not become the holy ones;
False tapas is deceit and vain effort
A ruse for worldly enjoyment;
Only by Truth of Jnana can tapas firm abide.

1657. ' Let Government lead people in the way of Virtue '

A land's weal and woe are in its people
Out of good deeds and evil do they spring;
And so,
If the ruler unceasing leads the multitude in virtue's way,
That land in prosperity waxes ever.

1656. Men of false robes bring famine

When those that have not acquired Jnana
Don the holy robes
And go about the land begging,
And evil ways pursuing,
The rains fail and famine strikes the land;
Better by far, these evil men are de-robbed straight.

8. FALSE ROBES

1655. Men of False Robes know not Siva

You fools! With false robes you deceive people
Your pretension but helps you gorge yourself fast with food;
Well may you sing and dance and weep and wail
And thus may Siva seek,
Yet never, never shall you glimpse His Feet.

7. JNANA FLOWS FROM GOD'S GRACE

1653. God is Beauty

Form within Sun-Stone is red hot ember,
Form within Moon-Stone is pearly drop of water,
Form within Fire-Stone is crackling fire,
Form of Lord that holds fire aloft
Is Beauty Surpassing.

1649. Things That Come of Siva's Grace

By Siva's Grace some become Devas
By Siva's Grace some equal Gods
By Siva's Grace Karmas near not;
When you have Siva's Grace,
You shall enter His Kingdom, indeed.

1643. ' Tapas is Control of Senses '

Inside the body-sack
The tiny calf of senses jumps about
For the fruit to ripe and for the ripened fruit to eat;
They that can tether the lusty legged calf to the yard
Shall no more have pulls within;
Their thoughts will in oneness center.

1642. ' They That Shun Tapas Hunger Forever '

In fear they ran from the crocodile in the river
And on the bank they fell into the embrace of the bear
Thus are they the ignorant of scriptures,
Who from austere tapas run sway.
For food and in hunger roam for ever.
