Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

If you want to perceive the real nature or form of the Guru you must first learn to look upon the whole universe as Guru rupam [the form of the Guru]. One must see the Guru in all living beings. It is the same with God. You must look upon all objects as God's rupa [form]. How can he who does not know his own Self perceive the real form of God or the real form of the Guru? How can he determine them? Therefore, first of all know your own real form and nature.

You have no idea how hard I've looked
for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right.
What's the point of bringing gold to
the gold mine, or water to the ocean.
Everything I came up with was like
taking spices to the Orient.
It's no good giving my heart and my
soul because you already have these.
So I've brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me

The Truth is that Self is constant and unintermittent Awareness. The object of enquiry is to find the true nature of the Self as Awareness. Let one practise enquiry so long as separateness is perceived.

“It is only when you become aware of death that you want to know what life is about. Only when you start really wondering what life is about does your spiritual process begin.
Once you come to terms with death and you are conscious that yo
u will die, you will want to make every moment of your life as beautiful as possible. You will have no time for any kind of nonsense. That is a simple way of being aware.

The Yogic student should not possess much wealth as it will drag him to worldly temptations. He may keep a small sum to get the wants of the body. Economical independence is of paramount importance to an aspirant; because it will relieve him from anxieties and will enable him to continue his practices uninterruptedly.

Self realisation is that in which both relative knowledge and phenomena falls off (dissolves)....

Onions Health Benefits
The onion is the richest dietary source of quercitin, a potent antioxidant flavonoid (also in shallots, yellow and red onions only but not in white onions), which is found on and near the skin and is particularly linked to the health benefits of onions.

Quercitin has been shown to thin the blood, lower cholesterol, raise good-type HDL cholesterol, ward off blood clots, fight asthma, chronic bronchitis, hay fever, diabetes, atherosclerosis and infections and is specifically linked to inhibiting human stomach cancer.

It's also an anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antiviral, thought to have diverse anti-cancer powers. Quercitin is also a sedative. So far, there is no better food source of quercitin than onion skins.

* Onions contain a variety of organic sulfur compounds that provide health benefits.

Самая мощная и действенная практика ─ когда человек отворачивается от бессмысленной суеты внешнего мира, перестает метаться, жаловаться, скулить и, наконец, по-настоящему обращается к самому себе и начинает работать. Сознание такого человека подобно улитке. Оно сворачивается само в себя и начинает само себя наблюдать и изучать. Делается это с единственной целью ─ погрузиться в свою собственную глубину и постичь собственную тайну.
Если человек полностью стирает себя, то приходит сила. Есть сила, способствующая практике. Есть сила, противодействующая ей. Источник обеих ─ один.
Дошедший до этого осознания практик более не исполняет ритуалов и молитв. Он не шепчет мантры и не мечется от одного гуру к другому. Он больше не читает популярной духовной литературы и не совершает паломничеств по святым местам. Теперь его храм и мастерская ─ он сам. Инструментом и предметом работы такого йогина является его собственное сознание.
Что же он делает? Он просто осознает, что происходит. И реагирует на возникающие ситуации адекватно, не теряя осознанности. Далее он продолжает так же.
В результате подобной практики, эго начинает быстро сдавать свои позиции. Сначала оно ослабляет свою хватку. При этом человек чувствует облегчение, как будто он избавляется от тяжелого груза, который долгое время тащил неизвестно куда и зачем. Затем, если практика продолжается успешно и мы не позволяем старому «я» изобретать новые, более утонченные формы маскировки, оно продолжает таять, растворяться, пока не исчезает окончательно и навсегда. А вместе с ним и старая жизнь.
Там, где раньше жило наше маленькое, озабоченное и вечно всем недовольное эго, возникает нечто новое. Сначала это что-то непонятное, огромное, свежее, пронзительное и открытое. Это новое пространство, в которое мы вступаем в изумлении, пробуя его наощупь и на зуб. Это совершенно новый мир, вырастающий на месте старого. Всё вроде бы то же самое, но по ощущению ─ совершенно иное. Мир становится лёгким, летучим и подвижным, как ртуть. Свинцовая тяжесть бытия остаётся в далёком прошлом.
Сутью и содержанием этого нового мира является тонкое, наполняющее его во всех направлениях, блаженство. Эта радость не зависит ни от чего. Никакие внешние обстоятельства, никакие мысли или внутренние состояния не могут затмить это восходящее солнце.

Карл: Меня называют «Мистер Тефлон». (смех) В Берлине из уст одной женщины это должно было звучать как оскорбление. «Ты как Тефлон. Ничего к тебе не прилипает! Ты по-прежнему смеешься. Я могу бранить тебя так и сяк, а ты как Тефлон. Ничего к тебе не прилипает». О, звучит хорошо.

В: Что такое медитация и каково её использование?

М: Пока вы начинающий, некоторые формальные медитации или молитвы могут принести вам пользу. Но для тех, кто ищет реальность, может быть только одна медитация – безжалостный отказ давать приют мыслям. Быть свободным от мыслей – это и есть медитация.

В: Как это сделать?

М: Вы начинаете, позволяя мыслям течь и наблюдая их. Само наблюдение замедляет ум, пока он окончательно не остановится. Когда ум затих, удерживайте его таким. Вам не должно становиться скучно от этого покоя, будьте в нём, проникайте в него глубже.

М. Дхьяна может быть внешней или внутренней, либо той и дру­гой. Джапа важнее внешней формы. Она должна практиковаться до тех пор, пока не станет естественной, начинаясь с усилием и продолжаясь до момента, когда уже будет выполняться сама со­бой. Самопроизвольная джапа называется Реализацией.

[Student] What is the teaching of Poonjaji?
His only response was to start laughing. He laughed and laughed and laughed.
When the laughter finally subsided, again he was asked again “What is the teaching of Poonjaji?”[Poojaji] Laughing, laughing and dancing. When a person laughs, he has no mind, no thought, no problem, no suffering.

Do not worship the mere outward show of renunciation, which has no meaning. What has meaning can never be had, can never be learned, from another. You can find it yourself when you are really simple when you have not the ashes of outward renunciation but the inward freedom from all conflicts, suppression, ambitions, imitations. Such a person is really a creative human being who will really help the world.
