Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

The state of a jnani is neither sleep nor waking but intermediate between the two.
There is the awareness of the waking state and the stillness of sleep.

It is the state of perfect awareness and of perfect stillness combined.
It lies between sleep and waking; it is also the interval between two successive thoughts.
It is not dullness but it is bliss.
It is not transitory but it is eternal.

"How does one seek union with God?"
"The harder you seek, the more distance you create between Him and you."
"So what does one do about the distance?"
"Understand that it isn't there."
"Does that mean that God and I are one?"
"Not one. Not two."
"How is that possible?"
"The sun and its light, the ocean and the wave, the singer and his song — not one. Not two."

Don't mix with those who have no desire for spirituality.
Don't hesitate to speak out in public what is just and right.
Never act against your conscience out of fear of authority.
Knowledge gained from the company of great souls is superior to book-knowledge.
The ornaments of the soul are justice, integrity, courage, and truth.
Bad men obey out of fear. Good men obey out of love.
Justice is to give each man his proper share.
You cannot get rid of evil simply by exposing it. If you try to be good, loving and honest, evil will disappear.
He who has no patience cannot be a man of justice.
Not all can understand that I am in all.

True freedom isn’t ‘I’m free.’ True freedom is ‘everything is free.’ Which means everyone has the freedom to be who they are. Whether they’re awake or not awake. Deluded or un-deluded. Freedom is that everything and everybody gets to be exactly as they are. Unless we’ve come to that point, unless we’ve seen that is how Reality sees things, then we’re actually withholding freedom from the world.

Relationship is needed only because you can’t be alone, because you are not yet capable of meditation. Hence, meditation is a must before you can really love. One should be capable of being alone, utterly alone, and yet tremendously blissful. Then you can love. Then your love is no more a need but a sharing, no more a necessity. You will not become dependent on the people you love. You will share, and sharing is beautiful.

Often one is more attached to the journey than to the discovery...
because the journey happens in the mind...

Rejoicing in ordinary things is not sentimental or trite. It actually takes guts. Each time we drop our complaints and allow everyday good fortune to inspire us, we enter the warrior’s world.

The state of self-realization, as we call it, is not attaining something new or reaching some goal which is far away, but simply being that which you always are and which you always have been.

The secret of attraction is to love yourself. Attractive people judge neither themselves nor others. They are open to gestures of love. They think about love, and express their love in every action. They know that love is not a mere sentiment, but the ultimate truth at the heart of the universe.

Papaji

To find permanent joy, you must look in the right direction. You will not find it in any outside object. Every object will rise, stay, and then cease. You have to look somewhere else for permanent, eternal joy. Don't attribute joy to something else, be it a person, the sun, moon, or stars.

Stop this tendency of going to outside objects, whatever they may be. Stop your mind from going in any direction outside. Then you must return to your inner beauty. That is your own nature: bliss eternal, which you have never felt.

If you allow the source of creation within you to find expression, joyful is the only way you can be.

The Egyptian Legend says that if one wants to enter heaven , at the point of entry you will be asked two questions . Unless you are one big Yes to these two questions , there is no entry for you. The first question is : Have you known joy in your life ? And the second question is : Have you given joy to those around you ? If your answer to these two questions is "Yes", I must tell you, you are already in heaven.

To be come a joyful human being is the best thing that you can do for yourself and all around you. Especially when anger , hatred and intolerance are rearing their heads in hideous ways , joyful human beings are the only insurance . Only those who know the value of being pleasant will strive to create pleasantness all around.

May you know the fulfillment of making all that you touch joyful.

Q: How do we make the intellect subtle?

Swami Chinmayananda: "Subtle Intellect" means that intellect which is not running headlong to crash into sense objects. That intellect which is not functioning under the pressure of its Vasanas, the intellect which is fully redeemed from their deadening pressure, is a subtle intellect. Vasanas are removed through dedicated activity done selflessly for the welfare of others.

NEW YEAR

Beloved Lord ! You had, with infinite patience
in your endless mercy, led us through a busy year,
giving certainly more than what we asked for,
and often even more than what we, perhaps, deserved.

We prostrate to you in humble reverence,
really aghast at your endless grace,
under which alone we could live all through the last year,
a fairly noble and moral life of service and satisfaction.
Lord ! with your help, may we live a nobler life of
greater undertakings in your seva, all through the coming year.

Let duty become touched with beauty,
all our obligations may, in your blessing, be turned
magically into opportunities. Teach us to fulfill our
duties with joy, nay, with pleasure.

May we bow down to others’ needs.
Let our ears be tuned to hear with love and concern the
silent cry of the needy.

Let us learn to accept kindness with humble joy.
Let us, during this year, learn to heal ourselves
of all our bleeding ulcers of misunderstanding,
jealousy and regrets that erupt from time to time
in our own hearts.

As this year ends, and the fresh year is being
welcomed, let peace and goodwill burst in our heart.

We shall sincerely strive, all through the year,
to serve your creatures,
but it is only in your grace shall they feel blessed,
by your splendour divine.

To know yourself is not a knowledge.
It is only a discovery.
It is not an achievement.
It is not a possession.
Nobody possesses self-knowledge.
If anything, you can perhaps say it is an exchange of the non-self for the Self, but who will receive the Self? No one.
That is why I say it is not an exchange.
This may sound like a riddle to you, a mystery or a paradox, but only if you listen with just your mind.
You will understand all of this easily in the presence, guidance and grace of a liberated being. Seek such company.

For the New Year my greatest wish and prayer for you is that you cast aside wrong habits of thinking and doing. Don't drag your bad habits into the New Year. You don't have to carry them with you. Any minute you may have to drop your mortal package, and those habits will vanish. They don't belong to you now. Don't admit them! Leave behind all useless thoughts and past sorrows and bad habits. Start life anew!

Always discriminate—your body, your house, the people around, and the world are all unreal like a dream. Always think that this body is only an inert instrument. And the Atman within is your real nature.
