Sadguru Nannagaru explains verse 40 of Aksharamanamala

Grant me wisdom, I beseech Thee, so that I may not pine for love of Thee in ignorance, Oh Arunachala!

When you have a great desire for money but you don't get it and whatever work you do becomes a failure, how much you will cry is unimaginable. This bride called Ramana is saying:'Oh! Arunachala, dont make me subject to such sorrow'. This sorrow is similar to the ones who has a great desire to win an election but loses the same. Recently a politician won an election after several attempts. When he was asked: 'Who are you?', he neither mentioned his caste nor his party name but referred to himself as the President. His unfulfilled desire became fulfilled after a long struggle. So he forgot his caste, religion and party name also. When he was suddenly asked about his whereabouts, he referred to himself as the President. His desire for that position makes him say so. Oh! Arunachaleswara, you made me develop the craving and yearning for you but cannot be reached. Having developed the yearning for you, if I cannot reach you, I will be subject to a great sorrow. Please dont subject me to such a pathetic state. Oh! Arunachaleswara, if this is not a pathetic state, whatelese is this? I developed love for you, I developed desire for you but cannot attain you. My heart is unable to attain you. When I want to see with my eyes, I am able to see my money and power only but not you. I desire to attain you but I dont understand how to attain you. I have a great desire to get liberated but I dont know how to get liberated. You have to reveal that secret. You have unveil that clue or puzzle. I have this pathetic state as I lack the knowledge to attain you. This is the root cause of my sorrow. Will you subject me to so much sorrow, Arunachaleswara? It is alright even if you completely abandon me. But you dont so so. You create the craving within me to attain you but are not attainable. Have you understood my helplessness, Oh! Arunachala? Though you may not bestow me with Supreme Knowledge, please show me the path to liberation, Oh! Arunachaleswara. You are only my path as well as goal. My path and goal are not different. You are only my way, my God, my husband, my friend as well as salvation. You are my everything. I need nothinglese other than you. Whether I open or close my eyes I see you alone. Whereever I see, I see nothingelse other than you. So I have an intense yearning to reach you. If I reach you, I wont have this suffering. Why are you making me subject to this sorrow and suffering? Please show me the path. It is a pathless path but not visible to eyes. Hence show me the path, Arunachaleswara. There is a necessity for you to show me the path. Dont exhibit escapism here. I can overcome this sorrow only if you bestow me with Self Knowledge. So protect me by bestowing with Self Knowledge. That which is the final truth, that by knowing which nothing else needs to be known, that by knowing which I get drowned in the ocean of Bliss, such an ocean of Bliss is within my Heart. So bestow me with your Grace to find such truth. As long as you dont do it, this sorrow, births,coming-going, disease, journey becomes inevitable. The bodies change, the circumstances change and the countries change but the ego doesnt change after death. Get rid of this ignorance and ego before the death approaches. If not, you will get a new body and new circumstances. Ego is the root cause of all the problems. So resolve this problem called ego. The loss that you incur is indescribable if you die without securing Self Knowledge. None can estimate such loss. Comfort is necessary but control is much more important. When you lack control, howmany ever comforts you may have, they will bring you sorrow only. So what is the root cause of sorrow? It is ignornace. Unless the ignorance is annihilated, sorrow becomes inevitable. Oh! Arunachaleswara, Jnana cannot be attained without shraddha. Please bestow me with that shraddha by developing which I can secure Jnana.
