We believe in so many things on hearsay. We believe in distant lands and people, in heavens and hells, in gods and goddesses, because we were told. Similarly, we were told about ourselves, our parents, name, position, duties and so on. We never cared to verify. The way to truth lies through the destruction of the false. To destroy the false, you must question your most inveterate beliefs. Of these the idea that you are the body is the worst. With the body comes the world, with the world -- God, who is supposed to have created the world and thus it starts -- fears, religions, prayers, sacrifices, all sorts of systems -- all to protect and support the child-man, frightened out of his wits by monsters of his own making. Realize that what you are cannot be born nor die and with the fear gone all suffering ends.

Once the Guru has accepted a disciple, He will never leave him until the goal has been attained. The question of leaving does not arise at all.

What passes away is not eternal. Every form that is born has to pass away, but the underlying essence has no form and never passes away. If you attach yourself to a form, you make a big mistake. Even attaching yourself to the form of the Guru is a mistake. It is not the form of the person that can give you light; it is something else that is deep within your own Heart. That is your Guru. That Guru abides in the Heart of all beings, not only human beings but also animals, birds, trees and plants. When you see your own essence, when you have that direct experience, you will see that every plant and animal is your own Self. They will all start to speak to you. This is the formless Self in the Heart of all beings.

Under the anger, under the fear, under the despair, under the broken heartedness, there is a radiance that has never been harmed, that has never been lost, that is the truth of who one is.

Self-realization is the willingness to stand as the Buddha, as the Christ, as every great icon we have had throughout time. Self-realization is not for the faint of heart.

GRACE LIES HIDDEN IN OUR EFFORT

Once I sought Bhagavan’s blessings on the ground that all my efforts to abide at the source of the mind had proved futile.
When Bhagavan asked, “What is the obstruction?”
I answered, “It is my deep-rooted tendencies. I need your grace.”
His reply was, “Your repeated effort is bound to erase them. All sadhana is meant for this purpose only.”

He further observed, “Keep up your practice. There is no need to remind God about His business which is to keep an eye always on our welfare. The mistake one is prone to make is to abandon effort under the mistaken impression that God’s grace is absent. But one should not slacken, for God’s grace is bound to operate at the ripe time.”

The devotee is a Divine lark, immersed in the spirit of his song; he has no thought about personal gain or impressing others with his singing. The actions of the devotee are for the Infinite alone, not to please mankind nor to satisfy his own material desires.

As soon as the 'seeker' is seen to be a mere thought arising in Awareness, he merges into Awareness and the spell of separation is broken. The seeker doesn't become a Finder. The 'seeker' ceases becoming and merges in the absolute Awareness.

How are you going to understand Truth?
To study and read holy scriptures is not enough.
Better than studying the holy scriptures, go and drown yourself in the Master's spit.
Your Heart has to be baptised in the spirit of God - in trust and openness. Then alone will intuitive and effortless knowledge awaken in you.

Questioner: How to find the Atman [Self]?

Ramana Maharshi: There is no investigation into the Atman. The investigation can only be into the non-self. Elimination of the non-self is alone possible. The Self being always self evident will shine forth of itself.

Q: How long will it take me to get free of the mind?

M: It may take a thousand years, but really no time is required. All you need is to be in dead earnest. Here the will is the deed. If you are sincere, you have it. After all, it is a matter of attitude. Nothing stops you from being a jnani here and now, except fear. You are afraid of being impersonal, of impersonal being.

It is all quite simple. Turn away from your desires and fears and from the thoughts they create and you are at once in your natural state.

Q: No question of reconditioning, changing, or eliminating the mind?

M: Absolutely none. Leave your mind alone, that is all. Don't go along with it. After all, there is no such thing as mind apart from thoughts which come and go obeying their own laws, not yours. They dominate you only because you are interested in them. It is exactly as Christ said 'Resist not evil'. By resisting evil you merely strengthen it.

You have squeezed yourself into the span of a lifetime and the volume of a body, and thus created the innumerable conflicts of life and death.
Have your being outside this body of birth and death and all your problems will be solved.They exist because you believe yourself born to die. Undeceive yourself and be free. You are not a person.

There was something formless and perfect
before the universe was born.
It is serene. Empty.
Solitary. Unchanging.
Infinite. Eternally present.
It is the mother of the universe.
For lack of a better name,
I call it Tao.

It flows through all things,
inside and outside, and returns
to the origin of all things.
