A great rAma-bhakta and advaita scholar by name brahmasri
parasuramapantula lingamurthy garu, once got a vision of
bhagavan rAmchandra who instructed lingamurthy garu to
translate the Adhyatma Ramayana into telugu.
He was instructed by rAmachandra to compose a gloss
on “rAma-hridaya” of Adhyatma-Ramayana
which is pregnant with advaita-siddhAnta.
His adhyAtma guru-parampara starts with Jagatguru Dattatreya
and the sampradaya is as follows:
Dattatreya > janardana yogi > Eko-guruswami >
narahari maheshaguruswami > nagoji ramaguru > koneru guru > mahadeva guru
Thus, Shri.Lingamurthy Garu composed a magnus opus called
“sItArAmAnjanEya-samvAda”. A beautiful work and gloss on
“rAma-hridaya” which culminates in universal vision of advaita.
This was said to be composed in 1760 AD.
The following are the last verses. After imparting the Upanishad vidya
to Shri Anjaneya, Lord ramachandra asks shri Anjaneya
whether He had understood the teaching properly or not.
Shri Anjaneya replies thus as:
shrI rAma ! rAma ! rAma ! ra, mArAmAmaNimanOramAramaNA shrI
nArAyaNa ! nArAyaNa ! nArAyaNa ! nijasahasranAma stutyA !
O Lord Ramachandra ! Thou art the form of brahmavidya
who is always sought after by rajayogis; thou art the
substratum of creation; thou art the repository of “aparoksha-jnana”.
Saying so, shri anjaneya says as:
dEhabuddhyA(a)smi dAsOham jIvabuddhyA tvadamshakah
AtmAbuddhyA tvamEva aham iti mE nishchitA matih
When I identify myself with “dEha”, I am thy servant;
when I identify myself with “jiva”, I am an aspect of thine;
when I shed both these abhimAnAs ie., jiva-bhAva & dEha-bhAva;
and identify with “kuTastha”, I am thee.
This secret I understood with thy grace O rAmachandra !
