Arunachala Ashtakam – Verse 4
Eight Verses on Arunachala
By Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi
To search for God while ignoring You, who is the all-pervading Being-Consciousness, is like going with a lamp searching for darkness.
Only to make Yourself known as the illuminating Being-Consciousness, You appear in different religions as the God of those religions.
Those who do not realize You who shines like this, they are indeed those who were born blind who cannot see the Sun.
Oh unparalleled, self-shining, brilliant gem, Arunachala! Abide and shine as my Self, as one without a second!
