God can never be close because it would mean that there is some place where God is not. God is infinite. We cannot exist outside of the infinite.
Therefore, God is our Reality.

The Center of the Hurricane is Peace

People ask me, when I see peace, what do I mean? I don’t have to see peace where it’s peaceful. I feel and see peace in every situation. Whatever there appears to be going on, there is peace. Just as in the center of a hurricane, there is a peaceful circle, total stillness at the center of a hurricane. The same is true in the center of a tornado, in the cyclone.

There is a Center of Peace. We are all that Center.

The true peace is YOU.

~ Silence of the Heart

Aim high, aim at the highest, and all lower aims thereby achieved. It is looking below on the stormy sea of differences that makes you sink, look up, beyond these and see the One Glorious Real, and you are saved.

O foolish person, cease to identify thyself with this bundle of skin, flesh, fat, bones and filth, and identify thyself instead with the Absolute Brahman, the Self of all, and thus attain to supreme Peace.

Once a Westerner asked Sri Bhagavan:

Should I become an ascetic or a Hindu
to realize the Self?

Sri Ramana Maharshi smiled and replied:

You need not have to be this and that.
Be as you are.
Be still.

Surrender is not a weakness it is strength. It takes tremendous strength to surrender life to the supreme — to the cosmic unfolding.

The seat of Realization is within and the seeker cannot find it as an object outside him. That seat is bliss and is the core of all beings. Hence it is called the Heart.

Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surrounding, the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance.

The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.

Peace can only come as a natural consequence of universal enlightenment and merging of races, and we are still far from this blissful realization.

But instinct is something which transcends knowledge. We have, undoubtedly, certain finer fibers that enable us to perceive truths when logical deduction, or any other willful effort of the brain, is futile.

Most persons are so absorbed in the contemplation of the outside world that they are wholly oblivious to what is passing on within themselves.

Everyone should consider his body as a priceless gift from one whom he loves above all, a marvelous work of art, of indescribable beauty, and mystery beyond human conception, and so delicate that a word, a breath, a look, nay, a thought may injure it.

Few people can grasp the Truth as it really is.
They grasp it intellectually.
But when it is grasped in the Heart
or it grasps you in the Heart,
then it grasps you so fully
that there are no longer two.
There is no "you" and "It,"
there is only Truth.
Truth suffocates the ego.
The grip of God suffocates the ego.
It cannot breathe, and merges into the One.

Q: God has created me, he will look after me.
M: There are innumerable gods, each in his own universe. They create and re-create eternally. Are
you going to wait for them to save you? What you need for salvation is already within your reach. Use it. Investigate what you know to its very end and you will reach the unknown layers of your being. Go further and the unexpected will explode in you and shatter all.

Q: Does it mean death?

M: It means life -- at last.

Being and not-being alternate and their reality is momentary. The Immutable Reality lies beyond space and time. Realize the momentariness of being and non-being and be free from both.

Please remember, objects are really the perceiving of them. Conversely, therefore, the perceiving of them is what the objects are. Try to understand.

When an object is seen as an object, there would have to be a subject other than the object. As the Jnani perceives, there is neither the subject that sees nor the object that is seen; only the 'seeing'.
In other words, the Jnani's perception is prior to any interpretation by the sensory faculties. Even if the normal process of objectification has taken place, the Jnani, in his perspective, has taken note of
this fact and seen the false as false. The Jnani in his undivided vision, has perceived that physically both the seer and the seen are objects, and that the functioning of consciousness itself merely produces effects in consciousness. Both the producing and the perceiving are done by
consciousness, in consciousness. Try to understand this.

In short, the Jnani's seeing is the whole-seeing, or in-seeing, or intuitive seeing, seeing without any objective quality — and that is freedom from bondage. That is what I mean when I say: "I see,
but I do not see."

Многие хотят достичь просветления
В мужской форме, однако тех, кто хочет
Трудиться на благо живых существ
В женском обличии, немного.
Поэтому пусть я буду служить
Благу существ в этом теле
До тех пор, пока не опустеет сансара.

I cannot relate to you as if you are someone with a problem.
That's too much of a miserable state for me.
If I do, I actually reinforce and perpetuate an identity in you that causes you continuous suffering.
Only by not supporting your delusion will
you hopefully come out of it.
If your master relates to you on the level of delusion, you are in master trouble.

Bhagavan recommends a Diet

In the fourth year of my stay in Palakottu Bhagavan advised me to restrict my diet.

‘Each day,’ he said, ‘you should eat only one coconut, a handful of peanuts, one mango and a small lump of jaggery [brown sugar]. If fresh mangoes are not available you can eat dried ones.’

Bhagavan told me that this diet would purify the body and help to keep the mind stabilized in the Self.

He also warned me, ‘In the beginning you will get diarrhea but don’t worry, the problem will go away after a few days.’

At the same time, he told me that I should keep mauna [silence] and spend as much time as possible in meditation. The instruction to keep mauna was very usual: Bhagavan normally discouraged people from taking vows of silence by saying, ‘It is more important to control your mind than your tongue. What is the point in remaining silent if you cannot keep the mind still?’

Within a few weeks of adopting this new regime I became so thin that my bones started to protrude.

People would ask me, ‘Are you eating? Are you hungry? Do you need some money?’

To avoid such comments, I kept my whole body covered and only went to see Bhagavan at night. My body became so thin I didn’t even have the strength to lift a bucket of water. It wasn’t too hard to avoid people. As soon as the devotees discovered I was in mauna they left me alone.

I spent most of my time meditating on the idea ‘I am the Self; I am everything.’ During meditation I often felt like a kind of energy rise up to my head. I don’t know whether it was kundalini or some other kind of energy. Whatever it was it came by itself. I never tried to make it come, nor did I try to control it in any way. This meditation, combined with the diet and the mauna, produced one other interesting side effect: my forehead became very shiny and apparently my facial expression became radiant and full of light. Several people noticed these things and made comments about them.
