Ramana Puranam – 2

    He it was who

    as I suffered in the whirl [of birth and death]

    forgetting the inescapable reality of the beginningless link

between the head [the jiva] and the foot [the Self],

inspired in me, wretched cur that I was,

the madness of devotion.

He removed the defect of the wandering ego-mind,

shaped me into a comely form

through the purification [of my consciousness],

kindled the flame [of jnana] for my salvation’s sake,

made me perform the fire-sacrifice of jnana

through the observance of devout austerities,

bathed me in his blissful gaze [at the sacrifice's end]

and became my Lord and Master.
