      from What to know before you die
      what is the most important thing
          for you to ever know
       a lifetime seems to have been lived
      yet the essence has been overlooked
        you can know about so many things
      yet relative knowledge brings no peace
          it's a crying shame to live a life
          without knowing who is living it
          who can know yourself by you
      dare to give yourself the precious gift
          of uncovering your real identity
      the boundless freedom of self realization
      this will blow the mind you think you have
          you and god, the same and one
              bright vast exactly here
            no eyes to see a difference
      What to Know Before You Die, by Cee - This is a rarity. A hardback hand-bound book of instruction for enlightenment from Cee with wisdom from the Advaita Vedanta tradition, written in a lyrical style. This book is a little bigger than 4" x 5", 60 pages, printed on a high quality paper. It combines original spiritual literature and the artistry of a handmade book.

      Question: What are the steps of practical training?

      Sri Ramana Maharshi: It depends on the qualifications and nature of
      the seeker.

      Questioner: I worship an idol.

      Sri Ramana Maharshi: Go on doing so. It leads to concentration of
      mind. Get one-pointed. All will come right in the end. People think
      that liberation (moksha) is somewhere outside them to be sought for.
      They are wrong. It is only knowing the Self in you. Concentrate and
      you will realize it. It is your mind that is the cycle of births and
      deaths (samsara).

      "It is nonsense to insist
      that we cannot achieve
      enlightenment without
      learned and pious teachers.
      Because wisdom is innate,
      we can all enlighten ourselves."


      From the website, "Daily Zen,"


      Dear All,
      a new German Ramana-group has been founded - in German language with the name: Bhagavan_Sri_Ramana
      So for those who are German speaking more or less (or want to freshen up the rosty German...) this is also a good possiblity.
      to join:
      Hopefully the German speaking devotees will find together this way a little bit more.
      There will be quotes of German translations. Some of a new German translation of Nan Yar (Who am I) will be quoted, but also Lucy Ma (Lucy Cornellson) who wrote the second German Ramana-biography (after Heinrich Zimmer, who wrote the first) and made some translations of Bhagavan's
      work from Tamil into German. The "Talks" are also here in German translation, likewise Annamalai Swami's Reminiscences and Osbornes biography and teaching - both out of stock since long, Mouni Sadhu likewise.
      So there is some here to share.
      The group is meant also for exchange of sadhana, most of all atma-vichara, but also other methods, and may be devotional as well.
      So let's see.
      The description of the group is as follows:
      Diese Gruppe ist für alle gedacht, die sich für Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi interessieren, und ist vorwiegend, aber nicht ausschließlich, seiner Lehre und Person gewidmet. Sie soll im Besonderen ein Austauschforum für die deutschsprachigen Devotees sein, die sich in der von Sri Ramana gelehrten Praxis der Selbstergründung üben und in ihm ihren Sat-Guru gefunden haben.

      Informationen zu englischsprachigen Ramana-Gruppen finden sich im Link unter dieser Hauptseite.

      Möge Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi diese Gruppe segnen!


       Movie Review. Prayers are answered with Mel Gibson's soul-stirring 'Passion' As one who has seen virtually every modern biblical epic -- from Cecil B. DeMille's "The Ten Commandments" to the two-part "Jesus" miniseries on CBS three years ago -- I can say "The Passion" is the most beautiful, profound, accurate, disturbing, realistic and bloody depiction of this well-known story that has ever been filmed. http://www.sltrib.com/2003/Aug/08062003/commenta/81562.asp

      Gutenberg Bible Now Online at University of Texas Ransom Center. The University of Texas Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center web site now features a scanned version of their Gutenberg Bible. The Gutenberg Bible, the first book printed with movable type, is one of the greatest treasures in the Ransom Center's collections. It was printed at Johann Gutenberg's shop in Mainz, Germany and completed in 1454 or 1455. The Center's Bible was acquired in 1978 and is one of only five complete examples in the United States. http://www.hrc.utexas.edu/exhibitions/permanent/gutenberg/
