An article about Bhagavan, written by a devotee, was
entitled, "Where Silence is an Inspired Sermon". On seeing this, Bhagavan wrote the Tamil verse, which is translated below:
Silence, the unique language, ever surging in the Heart, is the state of grace.
Akshara is a unique letter. You earnestly desired that I should write that unique letter in this book. As that unique letter shines forever, of its own accord, as the Self in the Heart, who indeed can write it down?
Sleep while Awake
Deep sleep can e'er be had while wide awake
By search for Self. In dream and waking states
Pursue the quest for Self without a break
So long as sleep's ignorance them permeates.
A Jnani and His Body
This was written in Sri Bhagavan's last days.
As one lets go the leaf after eating the food,
the seer sheds his body.
