Shri Shiva Lilambruta


श्रीशिवलीलामृत हा चौदा अध्यायांचा, २४५३ ओव्यांचा ग्रंथ स्कंदपुराणातिल ब्राम्होत्तर खंडाच्या आधारे रचला आहे. हा ओवीबद्ध ग्रंथ प्रसिद्ध संतकवी श्री प.प श्रीधरस्वामी यांनी इ. स. १७१८ मध्ये बारामती (महाराष्ट्र) येथे रचला. त्यांचे पूर्वाश्रमीचे नाव श्रीधर नारायणशास्त्री नाझरेकर असे होते. त्यांचा जन्म महाराष्ट्रात सोलापूर जिल्ह्यातील नाझरे या गावी इ. स. १६५८ साली झाला. वयाच्या विसाव्या वर्षापासून ते पंढरपुरातच स्तायिक झाले होते. तेथे राहून पुराण-प्रवचने व कीर्तने करून भक्तिमार्गाचा प्रसार करू लागले. त्यांची रसाळ कीर्तने ऐकण्यासाठी लोकांची गर्दी लोटू लागली. साहजिकच जे आपण कीर्तन-प्रवचनातून सांगतो, ते ग्रंथबद्ध केल्यास भाविक जनांना त्याचा अधिक लाभ होईल, असा विचार करून त्यांनी पुराणकथा मराठी भाषेत ओविछन्दात लिहिण्यास प्रारंभ केला. त्यांचा पहिला ओवीबद्द ग्रंथ 'हरिविजय' हा होय. आकाराने लहान असलेला श्रीशिवलीलामृत हा त्यांचा शेवटचा सहावा ग्रंथ होय.

श्रीधरस्वामी भगवदभक्त संत होते. त्यांची भाषा संस्कृतप्रचुर असली, तरी साधी व प्रासादिक आहे. त्यांची वर्णनशैली ओघवती, चित्रदर्शी असल्याने वाचकांचे चित्त ग्रंथातील विषयात गुंतवून ठेवते. त्यांच्या काव्यात भक्तिरस प्रधान असून त्याचा परिपोष करणारे वीर-करुनादी रस हि प्रभावशाली आहेत. त्याचबरोबर धर्मशास्त्र, अध्यात्म, सांख्य इत्यादी शास्त्रांची ओळखही ते वाचकांना करून देतात.

अशा या प्रासादिक ग्रंथाचे हे वाचन आहे.

Brahmana Gita Audiobook (Hindi)

  
 


 Brahmana Gita is from the 16 Chapter of Ashwamedh Parva of Mahabharata. This Gita is also called as Bhagwan Shri Krishna's 2nd Gita as it was told by Shri Krishna to Arjuna after the war of Kurukshetra ended and after Arjuna confessed to Shri Krishna that he had forgotten the Upadesa of Bhagwad Gita which was told to him earlier. As this Gita is told through a conversation between a Brahmana and his wife, its called by the name of Brahmana Gita.
This Gita is indeed no less significant than Bhagvad Gita in philosophical import.

Shri Vishnu Gita AudioBook (Hindi)




Vishnu Gita is a dialogue between Lord Maha Vishnu and the Devatas. It is believed to be much older than Bhagavad Gita as it was told in Satya Yuga (Krita Yuga) and the latter was told in Dwapar Yuga. Though one finds much striking similarities between these two Gitas, Vishnu Gita has its own unique style and lays more emphasis on the importance of a Sadguru.

  Shri Shiva Gita AudioBook (Hindi)






The Śhiva-Gītā is a text of Vedantic Śhaivism that comes to us from the latter portion (uttara kānda) of the Padma Purāna. In the Śhiva-Gītā, the teacher is Lord Śhiva and the disciple is Śrī Rāma, and the narrator is Suta Rishi. Lord Shiva tell Shri Rama the secrets of Bhakti and Jnana Yoga.

The Śhiva-Gītā begins with episode from the Rāmāyana epic, where Rāma is despondent over the loss of Sītā. At this time, Rāma is visited by Sage Agastya, and the sage prescribes to Rāma that he should observe a special vow called the Pāśhupata vrata. By observing this vow Agastya promises that Rama will have a vision of Lord Śhiva, and will receive the Pāśhupata astra (weapon) without which Rāvana cannot be defeated. Rāma performs the vow and at the end of four months receives a divine vision of Śhiva. Śhiva presents Rāma with the Pāśhupata astra, and Rāma in turn asks Lord Śhiva a series of questions. The dialogue between Rāma and Lord Śhiva makes up the bulk of the Śhiva-Gītā.

 Who Am I - Ramana Maharshi Audio Book (Marathi)


 

    "Who am I?" is the title given to a set of questions and answers bearing on Self-enquiry. The questions were put to Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi by one Sri M. Sivaprakasam Pillai about the year 1902. Sri Pillai, a graduate in Philosophy, was at the time employed in the Revenue Department of the South Arcot Collectorate. During his visit to Tiruvannamalai in 1902 on official work, he went to Virupaksha Cave on Arunachala Hill and met the Master there. He sought from him spiritual guidance, and solicited answers to questions relating to Self-enquiry. As Bhagavan was not talking then, not because of any vow he had taken, but because he did not have the inclination to talk, he answered the questions put to him by gestures, and when these were not understood, by writing. As recollected and recorded by Sri Sivaprakasam Pillai, there were fourteen questions with answers to them given by Bhagavan. This record was first published by Sri Pillai in 1923, along with a couple of poems composed by himself relating how Bhagavan's grace operated in his case by dispelling his doubts and by saving him from a crisis in life. 'Who am I?' has been published several times subsequently. We find thirty questions and answers in some editions and twenty-eight in others. There is also another published version in which the questions are not given, and the teachings are rearranged in the form of an essay. The extant English translation is of this essay. The present rendering is of the text in the form of twenty-eight questions and answers.

     Who Am I - Ramana Maharshi Audio Book (Hindi)



    This essay, composed by Bhagavan in the mid-1920s, is the work that originated with answers written in the sand in 1901. For many years it was the standard introduction to Bhagavan's teachings. Its publication was subsidised and copies in many languages were always available in the ashram's bookstore, enabling new visitors to acquaint themselves with Bhagavan's practical advice.
