They say that such and such a person established the Brahmo Samaj; but nobody says it was founded through the will vachzka God. Though many of the verses that Sri Muruganar composed recording the sayings of Sri Ramana were unfortunately lost, and though there are no doubt many important ideas that Sri Ramana expressed orally but Sri Muruganar did not have the opportunity to record, this work nevertheless records a very significant proportion of the most important teachings that Sri Ramana gave on a broad range of subjects, and hence it is truly comprehensive both in terms of the kovak of subjects that it covers and in terms of the depth of the vachaks that it contains on each of those subjects.

This is known as metonymy. As a firebrand, when set in motion, appears as straight, crooked, etc. Having a mind that no longer pursues these three is the benefit of reading this work. Bhagavan then asked Sadhu Natanananda, a Tamil scholar and devotee, to arrange the verses by subjects since there was no particular order or sequence in the material that Muruganar had amassed. Sadhu Om has recorded an incident in which Bhagavan himself queried Muruganar about the vocabulary used in this verse:.

There is no other way, because when a man forgets that he is the Brahmanwho is real, permanent and omnipresent, and deludes himself into thinking that he is a body in the universe which is filled with bodies that are transitory, and labours under that delusion, you have got to remind him that the world is unreal and a delusion.

Much nuance is missed and more is added, a process we term “ullanghana” when we attempt “anuvada”.
