Whether farmer or industrialists, baba or mullah, man, woman, or child – only if every individual does well, the country will do well.

Talks with Ramana Maharshi

22nd September, 1936

From Talk 41 -

D.: Are there heaven (swarga) and hell (naraka)?

M.: There must be someone to go there. They are like dreams. We see time and space exist in dream also.
Which is true, dream or wakefulness?

D.: So we must rid ourselves of lust (kama), anger, (krodha), etc.

M.: Give up thoughts. You need not give up anything else. You must be there to see anything. It is the Self.
Self is ever-conscious.

D.: Are pilgrimages, etc., good?

M.: Yes.

D.: What effort is necessary for reaching the Self?

M.: `I' should be destroyed.
Self is not to be reached. Is there any moment when Self is not? It is not new. Be as you are. What is new cannot be permanent. What is real must always exist.

When you are out walking and you become tired you stop, you sit down, you relax. So when you get tired of trying to find solutions to your problems, when you find no solution, sit down. By sit down I mean, don’t try to solve the problem at all - the problem is in the past, it is not now. Don't think about past problems, just leave them alone and sit down. This is the moment of relaxation. You only have to allow this, listen to it, do not do anything. Just listen: Don't go to the past. The past is a problem, the past is mind. When you go to the past all will be problems so don't go to the past. The mind is the past and the past is a graveyard. Don't go to the graveyard. All problems are dead, so return to this moment without trying to solve the problem. Trying has put you in trouble, so don't touch this trying any more.

Simply sit down, keep quiet. Keep quiet for one moment. This is the moment you need, this is the moment of rest. Keep quiet for a moment without going to the past and you will find relaxation. There is no other way - simply do not think of the past. First help yourself - which means to not think - and then if you still need to you can ask me for help.

Just for this moment do not think, but direct your mind to its Source. Bring the mind which is thinking - which is going to the past - to face this present moment, and this will give you eternal rest. Help yourself not to look to past moments and do you find any problems? In this moment, without going to the past, where is the problem? Has it gone away? Then you have helped yourself. This is truly Self help

The true devotee's heart is always saying: "My Lord, my Lord, I do not want to become ensnared in the delusory drama of Thy creation. I want no part of it except to help in establishing Thy temple in the souls of men. My heart, my soul, my body and mind - everything belongs to Thee." Such devotion reaches God. That devotee knows God.

Once you have understood the union of emptiness and the dependent arising of phenomena, you will see clearly how deluded and deceiving the ways of the world really are, and, like an old man forced to play children’s games, you will find them very tiresome. When you have realized the utter foolishness of spending your life attached to friends and scheming to subdue your enemies and competitors, you will find it tedious. Once you have been struck by the pointlessness of letting yourself be forever influenced and conditioned by your habitual tendencies, you will become sick of it...
That will inspire you to strive towards liberation — and by striving for it, you will attain it.

Let the body do what it likes. Thinking thus, I always abide in my own Self as the Perfect fountainhead of Bliss and pure uninterrupted consciousness. I am therefore in the state of perfection and remain unblemished.

The sun of my protection shines equally in your good days and in your dark moments. That's why you must have faith and smile, since the supreme sin against the Spirit is not to be happy. Allow the curl of perpetual smiles be drawn in your face. And through the transparency of your smiles, My light will come to you. Be happy, if you want to please me.

Just as ice is nothing but water, so the Beloved is without form, without quality, and the question of manifestation does not arise. When this is realized, one has realized one’s Self.

Take life easily,
lovingly, playfully, non-seriously.
Seriousness is a disease,
the greatest disease of the soul,
and playfulness the greatest health.

True happiness is when you find inner stability, inner comfort and when you know you are connected to something much bigger than what you can even imagine. True happiness is when you know that there is some power in you which is unshakeable. The love or God that is deep inside you is that which manages or keeps the orderliness in the whole creation. When you know that then, nobody and nothing whatsoever can take away your happiness.

The state of Buddha contains in itself five "bodies" or aspects of Buddhahood: the Manifested Body, the Body of Perfect Enjoyment, the Absolute Body, the Essential Body and the Immutable Diamond Body. These are not to be sought outside us: they are inseparable from our being, from our mind. As soon as we have recognised this presence, there is an end to confusion. We have no further need to seek Enlightenment outside. The navigator who lands on an island made entirely of fine gold will not find a trace of anything else, no matter how hard he searches. We must understand that all the qualities of Buddha have always existed inherently in our being.

Sometimes God challenges you to find strength you don’t have.
Only like this will you go beyond your imagined limits.
You must be pushed so far that you are forced to be humble.
Only then, when your pride and arrogance are crushed, will you discover muscles that are not yours. You will find and use the muscles of God.

When you completely abandon yourself, your ego, this miracle becomes possible.

You alone are responsible for yourself. No one else may answer for your deeds when the final reckoning comes. Your work in the world - in the sphere where your karma, your own past activity, has placed you - can be performed only by one person: yourself. And your work can be called a "success" only when in some way it serves your fellowman.

"You can understand the secret of bliss when you think of the nature of the Self. The waves of the mind will subside. Everything is there in you already. If there is faith, you can find it. The happiness that we get from the objects of the world is only an infinitesimal fraction of the bliss that we get from within." - Amma

Question: Do you need a guru, a living Guru to be Realized?

Papaji: You cannot realize the Self without the Grace of a living Guru. If you are in a body, you need a physical guru. If you are in a body you need a guru in the body, otherwise the Guru is within, but you don't understand his language. So the Guru in the body is necessary for the student in the body so they can converse with each other and remove the doubts of the student. Then the student will know that the Guru is within.

You need a Guru without
Just to tell you, "I am within you"

The Guru is formless Within you and you are also formless. If you know this you don't need a Guru with a body. If you are fortunate enough to find a Teacher with a body do not miss the chance!

431. Mere possession of wealth does not make a man rich. The sign of a rich man's house is that a light burns in each room. The poor cannot afford the oil, therefore they do not arrange for many lights.
This temple of the body should not be kept in darkness; the lamp of knowledge must be lighted in it. "Lighting the lamp of knowledge in your room, look upon the face of the Mother Divine." Everyone can attain to knowledge. There is the individualized self and there is the higher Self. Every individual is connected with the higher Self. There is a gas connection in every house, and gas can be had from the Gas Company. Only one has to apply to the proper quarters, and the supply will be arranged. Then you will have gas-light in your room (Laughter)
