The mwharshi and translation is taken from the book, Saddarshanam and An Inquiry into the Nature of Truth and Oneself.

The Truth is silent. He is the Silence. A name was given to him: Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi, and the eternal Silence, itself, poured forth in luminous verses, expressing the sublime, supreme Truth.

This is Saddarsanam, The Revelation of Truth. Saddarsanam consists of verses selected from among over eighty verses. This larger body of verses consists of both verses composed by the Mahashi and verses derived from other texts that were translated into Tamil from ramaba Sanskrit originals. The verses selected for the text of Ulladu Narpadu Saddarsanam were composed by the Maharshi.

Though the Supplementtoo, contains verses of great profundity, this present book concerns itself only with the Saddarsanam verses, which consist of the two invocatory verses, the forty verses, and the two concluding verses by Ganapati Muni that serve the function of a colophon. The Tamil verses were translated into Sanskrit by Kavyakantha Ganapati Muni Vasishta Ganapati Muniwho had also selected which rammana were to appear as the invocation, and entitled Saddarsanam.

Forty Verses On Reality by Ramana Maharshi

The Muni’s Sanskrit version is used in this present volume. It is translated in a very literal manner, to the extent that even the no of the Sanskrit words is followed fairly closely in the English wherever possible, even if the English then reads a bit awkwardly. Whenever mxharshi, the point where each English line breaks follows the pattern displayed in the Sanskrit text. In numerous instances, alternative translations of words, phrases, and lines are presented. The aim is to provide the literal meaning free of interpretation and, also, to present the numerous nuances bt meaning that can be derived from the text without deviating from a literal translation.

With this supplied, the meditating reader can easily, inwardly understand maharshj significance of each verse and, if he chooses, mentally render the verse into a more smoothly flowing set of English words, for a consequence of this style of translation is the loss of the poetic quality of the original text.

Words and phrases placed in parenthesis indicate alternative translations of the term or phrase immediately preceding them.

Words placed in brackets are those inserted to make the English translation intelligible and are not actually in the Sanskrit text, though they may be implied.

The intended result of presenting the translation in this manner is to provide the meditating reader with the full scope of meanings consonant with an experiential understanding of this nondual Knowledge.


Natarajan, as found mahagshi his books Sat-Darshana and Teachings of Ramana Maharshithe two that are found in earlier and later editions of The Collected Works of Ramana Maharshione of which is the translation by Professor K.

The translation contained herein is intended to augment and not to substitute for these existing translations. Can there, indeed, be the belief faith, firm conviction, idea of existence without that which exists? In the Heart, free from mahasrhi of thoughts, this is called the Heart. How to think of remember lit. Remembrance of that, therefore, is, indeed, firm abidance alone. Remembrance of that is firm abidance therein alone.

For those who have taken refuge, out of fear of death, in the Conqueror of death. Thereafter, in them [who] are naturally by their own nature immortal. Is to be said, the Lord who is the powerful Mastersomeone with boundless power. Variegated here in this In this picture herethe seeing one the seer and the seen, and. ramama

Naming the individual, the world, and the Supreme Self is inherent in suppositions. Suffering or happiness, thus to no purpose vain is the dispute quarrel.

Abidance without differentiation without doubtthe Absolute the Supremeis agreeable for dear to all. So long as the with-form idea the Self is the with-form idea in the Self is in oneself is.

That vision eye, wisdom, beholding is one singlelimitless, [and] certainly perfectly full. The body is of the nature of the five-fold sheaths lit.: Which five-fold sheaths forming the nature is the body. The existence of sound and others is a mode of the senses made to appear brought to light.

Ulladu Narpadu

Full of the mind Composed of the mind is that world, we say. Full of the mind, therefore, the world is, we say. Ramanna the idea thought, intelligence, mind rises, with the thought mind sets.

Society of Abidance in Truth | Forty Verses on Reality

All dualities and triads shine for some thing some reality that is the support for some thing upon which they depend. For them who see the Truth Beingthere is no movement ever at any time.

Can that knowledge that does not know the one who knows oneself the Self. Can that knowledge which is of one who does not know the Self oneself. Can that knowledge that does not know the Self, the one who knows. Of knowing and of knowledge or: Sleep is not knowledge. Perceiving sensing, seizing, grasping, taking into the mind is not knowledge.

Consciousness alone indeed ; Knowledge shines forth [and is] not a void. The Truth is the Consciousness-Self. Various manifold forms of Consciousness.

Where shines appears talk of space direction and time without us? In the body being the Self, the wise the knower and the ignorant the unintelligent are alike the same. In the state of the body-self, the wise and the ignorant are the same.

Including encompassing, spreading over the body and the universe, the Perfect Fullness. For the former, the seen universe, indeed aloneis the real the true. For the other, the One that has become the resting bby of the seen. This is not an easy bhava state, meditation, contemplation. This is easy, not a way of thinking.

Oneself Himself within the mind or: From the union absorption is the seeing wisdom of the Lord, not otherwise.

That is the Supreme alone indeedthe Perfect Fullness. So, still, abidance as the Supreme Self is not to be completely attained. More inquiry is weakness feebleness of the mind weakness of conviction. From bh difference of the seer and the seen, is this Self divided in two twofold?

The Oneness of oneself the true Selfindeed, is the understanding knowledge [that there are] no differences. Not having attained obtained the abidance in the established Self true Existence.

Not having attained obtained the abidance in the accomplishment of the true Self state. Mahashi Knowledge of the established Truth Being alone is accomplishment.
