*** NEWFULLDB 2.4M ***

1:The thundering resonance of the Word has liberated me while living; Such is the service, O Lord, rendered by Thy minister, the Saint. How can I ever repay Thee, O my Benefactor? Thou art my mother, Thou art my father, Thou art my munificent Lord. Thou hast blessed me with Thy overflowing love within. Through Thee have I experienced the glory of freedom.

~ Namdev, The thundering resonance of the Word

2:Thou art the Creator, Thou alone art my friend; Thou, O Lord, art all-pervading. True meditation revealeth Thee in all Thy perfection; And the snares of illusion are rendered ineffective. Vast and vicious is this mesh of illusion, Whose intricate tentacles suck one dry. Sing with all thy heart, the Name of the Lord; It costs thee nothing, O Nama, to repeat His Name.

~ Namdev, Thou art the Creator, Thou alone art my friend

3:When I see His ways, I sing. Thus I find peace, O brothers. O brothers, lose yourself in the Word; the true guru shall lead you to Deva. Where light shimmers, there resounds the unsounded Word. Light blends with light: this I perceived by the guru's grace. There were rubies bright as lightning in my own lotus-room. He is near, not far. He fills my very breath. Where shines the eternal Sun, there a lamp also dimly burns. I finally understood by the guru's grace. Now the slave Namdeva is blended with the Eternal. [2184.jpg] -- from Songs of the Saints from the Adi Granth, Translated by Nirmal Dass

~ Namdev, When I see His ways, I sing

4:The drum with no drumhead beats; clouds thunder without the monsoon; rain falls without clouds. Can anyone guess this riddle? I have met Ram the beautiful, and I too have become beautiful. The philosopher's stone turns lead into gold; costly rubies I string with my words and thoughts. I discovered real love; doubts, fears have left me. I found comfort in what my guru taught me. A pitcher will fill when plunged in water, so Ram is the One in all. The guru's heart and the disciple's heart are one. Thus has the slave Namdeva perceived Truth. [2184.jpg] -- from Songs of the Saints from the Adi Granth, Translated by Nirmal Dass

~ Namdev, The drum with no drumhead beats

5:He is the One in many, countless are His shapes and forms. He pervades all that exists; wherever I look, He is there. But very few perceive this reality, for Maya ever enchants us with her multiple reflections of color and alluring beauty. Everything is Gobind, Gobind is everything. Nothing that exists is without Gobind: the one thread strings innumerable beads -- Prabhu Himself is the thread, the threader, the threaded. River and waves, foam and bubbles have all their being within water itself. This play of things is the sport of Parbhama. The One cannot be thought different from the other. Hope is a lie and desire a mere dream -- yet both are construed as actual reality. But when my guru gave me his holy wisdom, I awoke from my dream and my heart yielded. Namdeva says, Behold Hari's creation; ponder upon it with all your heart, and you will see that in every pore, in every living thing, there is only the one Murari. [2184.jpg] -- from Songs of the Saints from the Adi Granth, Translated by Nirmal Dass

~ Namdev, He is the One in many

6:Laughing and playing, I came to Your Temple, O Lord. While Naam Dayv was worshipping, he was grabbed and driven out. I am of a low social class, O Lord; why was I born into a family of fabric dyers? I picked up my blanket and went back, to sit behind the temple. As Naam Dayv uttered the Glorious Praises of the Lord, the temple turned around to face the Lord's humble devotee. Shabad by Bhagat Nam Dev in the Siri Guru Granth Sahib on how he had the darshan of the Lord. Nam Dev milked the brown cow, and brought a cup of milk and a jug of water to his family god. Please drink this milk, O my Sovereign Lord God. Drink this milk and my mind will be happy. Otherwise, my father will be angry with me. Taking the golden cup, Nam Dev filled it with the ambrosial milk, and placed it before the Lord. The Lord looked upon Nam Dev and smiled. This one devotee abides within my heart. The Lord drank the milk, and the devotee returned home. Thus did Nam Dev come to receive the Blessed Vision of the Lord's Darshan.

1.240 - Talks 2, #unset, #Sri Aurobindo, #Integral Yoga
  M.: Listen to what happened once, years ago.
  There was a saint by name Namdev. He could see, talk and play with Vithoba as we do with one another. He used to spend most of his time in the temple playing with Vithoba.
  On one occasion the saints had assembled together, among whom was one Jnandev of well-established fame and eminence. Jnandev asked
  Gora Kumbhar (a potter-saint) to use his proficiency in testing the soundness of baked pots and find out which of the assembled saints was properly baked clay. So Gora Kumbhar took his stick and gently struck each ones head in joke as if to test. When he came to Namdev the latter protested in a huff; all laughed and hooted. Namdev was enraged and he sought Vithoba in the temple. Vithoba said that the saints knew best; this unexpected reply upset Namdev all the more.
  He said: You are God. I converse and play with you. Can there be anything more to be gained by man?
  --
  
  Accordingly Namdev sought out the particular saint mentioned by Vithoba. Namdev was not impressed with the holiness of the man for he was nude, dirty and was lying on the floor with his feet resting on a linga.
   Namdev wondered how this could be a saint. The saint, on the other hand, smiled on Namdev and asked, Did Vithoba send you here? This was a great surprise to Namdev who was now more inclined to believe the man to be great.
  So Namdev asked him: You are said to be a saint, why do you desecrate the linga? The saint replied. Indeed I am too old and weak to do the right thing. Please lift my feet and place them where there is no linga. Namdev accordingly lifted the saints feet and placed them elsewhere. But there was again a linga below them.
  Wherever the feet were placed then and there appeared a linga underneath. Namdev finally placed the feet on himself and he turned into a linga. Then Namdev understood that God was immanent and learnt the truth and departed. He went home and did not go to the temple for several days. Vithoba now sought him out in his home and asked why Namdev would not go to the temple to see God.
   Namdev said: Is there a place where He is not?

  PHILOSOPHY OF THE DIVINE NAME
  ACCORDING TO ST. Namdev
  The name permeates the entire universe densely; who can tell to what depths in the nether regions and to what height in the heaven It extends?
  --
  
  LITERAL TRANSLATION OF Namdev'S
  "PHILOSOPHY OF THE DIVINE NAME."
  I. The Name permeates densely the sky and the lowest regions and the entire universe. Who can tell to what depths in the nether regions and to what height in the heavens It extends? The ignorant undergo the eighty-four lakhs of species of births, not knowing the essence of things. Namdev says the Name is immortal. Forms are innumerable, but the Name is all that.
  
  --
  
  Beware, there is no mantra beyond the Name. Those who say otherwise are ignorant. Namdev says the Name is Keshava Himself.
  
  --
  
  III. The all-pervading nature of the Name can only be understood when one recognises his 'I'. When one's own name is not recognised, it is impossible to get the all-pervading Name. When one knows oneself, then one finds the Name everywhere. To see the Name as different from the Named creates illusion. Namdev says, "Ask the Saints."
  IV. None can realise the Name by practice of knowledge, meditation or austerity. Surrender yourself first at the feet of the Guru and learn to know that 'I' myself is that Name. After finding the source of that 'I', merge your individuality in that one-ness, which is Self-existent and devoid of all duality. That which pervades beyond dwaita and dwaitatita, that Name has come into the three worlds. The Name is Para Brahman itself, where there is no action arising out of duality.

The ignorant undergo the eighty-four lakhs of species of births, not knowing the essence of things. Namdev says the Name is immortal. Forms are innumerable, but the Name is all that.
  II. The Name itself is form; and form itself is Name. There is no distinction between Name and form. God became manifest and assumed Name and form. Hence the Name the Vedas have established.
  Beware, there is no mantra beyond the Name. Those who say otherwise are ignorant. Namdev says the Name is Keshava Himself.
  This is known only to the loving devotees of the Lord.
  III. The all-pervading nature of the Name can only be understood when one recognises his I. When ones own name is not recognised, it is impossible to get the all-pervading Name. When one knows oneself, then one finds the Name everywhere. To see the Name as different from the Named creates illusion. Namdev says, Ask the Saints.

  D.: What is the efficacy of the name?
  Sri Bhagavan read out the extract from the Vision. It was a translation of Namdevs stanzas.
  D.: How does the name help Realisation?
