Ramana Maharshi

(09 January 1879 – 14 April 1950 / Tiruchuzhi, Tamil Nadu / India)

Letters To Sri Arunachala - Verses 31-35 - Poem by Ramana Maharshi


Join me quietly, there
Where speech and thought subside
And the sea of bliss surges.


O try me no more by
Playing tricks but show me
Your form of light,


‘Stead of teaching me
Jugglery to cheat the world,
Teach me abidance in Self,


If you won't unite with me
My body'll melt away,
I'll be lost in a flood of tears,


If you do spurn me
Karmas will only burn me
How then shall I be saved
