Letters To Sri Arunachala - Verses 6-10 - Poem by Ramana Maharshi


You who give love greater
Than one's own mother's
Is this your love


Firmly stand upon
My mind lest she
Run away fooling you.


Do reveal your beauty
So the world-roaming mind
Sees you ever and is stilled,


Is this your bravery
If you don't unite now
With me destroying me,


O why do you sleep
When all else drags me?
Does this become you,
