The Meaning of ‘Om Namah Shivaya’ :

It means “I bow to Shiva.” Shiva is the supreme reality, the inner Self. It is the name given to consciousness that dwells in all. Shiva is the name of your true identity- your self.

According to Hindu mythology there are three Gods who run this creation. The Brahma – who creates the universe, the Vishnu – who preserves the Universe and the Shiva- who in the end destroys the universe. Among the three deities, Shiva, though considered as destroyer, also symbolize the – the inner self which remains intact even after everything ends.

In this mantra the chanter (one who repeats the mantra) bow to Shiva- his true self.

***

Ramana Maharshi says in one of his stotras about Arunachala (Shiva): “I gave “me”, and I got YOU in return, so who of us is the intelligent one?”

***

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi:

“Arunachala is the heart of the world, is Shiva himself.
As we identify ourselves with the body,
so Shiva, the supreme truth, identifies himself with the mountain.
It happens out of love for those who are seeking to realize Him.“

***

Madhukar:

“Yes, this mountain is Shiva himself.
When a human being can be enlightened, why not also a mountain?

Each one who has been there realizes
that even though he finds a red geological formation in a plain with paddy fields, it is much more a mystical place.

Bhagavan is still there!

This phenomenon of silent presence is described as soundless sound.
I would say: vibrationless vibration.“

***

„When Arunachala pulled me towards him, filled my mind in silence and I came close to him, I saw: he means absolute stillness”.

***

“Arunachala is within and not outside. The Self Is Arunachala.“

***

„For the human eye he is only a shape out of earth and rock, but his true form is divine light.“

***

“The secret of the mountain is the secret of the Self.“

***

“Arunachala thou dost root out the ego of those who meditate on thee in
the heart, oh Arunachala.”

***
Arunachala Siva!
Arunachala Siva!
Arunachala Siva!

Arunachala!

MERE GURUDEV / MY GURUDEV


Mere Gurudev, charanon par sumana shraddha ke arpita hai
Tere hee dena hai jo hai. Wahi tujha ko samarapita hai

My Gurudev I offer these flowers of my faith at your feet
Whatever I have, you have given to me, and I dedicate it all to you.

Na priti hai pratiti hai, na hi puja ki shakti hai
Meraa yaha man, meraa yaha tan, meraa kan kan samarapita hai

I have no love, nor do I know you.
I don`t even have the strength to worship you,
But this mind of mine, this body of mine,
my every atom is dedicated to you.

Tuma hee ho bhaava men mere, vicharon mein, pukaron mein.
Banaale yantra ab mujhko mere saravatra samarapita hai

You are the only one in my heart and my thoughts.
You are the one who I call out to.
Now Make me your instrument; all I am I offer to you

MERE GURUDEV / MEIN GURUDEV


Mere Gurudev, charanon par sumana shraddha ke arpita hai

Tere hee dena hai jo hai. Wahi tujha ko samarapita hai

Mein Gurudev,
diese Blumen meines Vertrauens lege ich zu DEINEN FÜSSEN,

Was immer ich habe hast DU mir gegeben und alles ist DEIN.

Na priti hai pratiti hai, na hi puja ki shakti hai

Meraa yaha man, meraa yaha tan, meraa kan kan samarapita hai

Weder habe ich Liebe, noch kenne ich DICH

Ich habe nicht einmal die Kraft DICH anzubeten

Doch dieser mein Geist, dieser mein Körper

Jedes meiner Atome gehört DIR

Tuma hee ho bhaava men mere, vicharon mein, pukaron mein.

Banaale yantra ab mujhko mere saravatra samarapita hai

Einzig DU bist in meinem Herzen, bist meine Gedanken
DU bist DER zu dem ich rufe
Jetzt mache mich zu DEINEM Werkzeug,
alles was ich bin – ist DEIN
