15. How long should inquiry be practised?

As long as there are impressions of objects in the mind, so long the
inquiry "Who am I?" is required. As thoughts arise they should be
destroyed then and there in the very place of their origin, through
inquiry. If one resorts to contemplation of the Self unintermittently,
until the Self is gained, that alone would do. As long as there are
enemies within the fortress, they will continue to sally forth; if they
are destroyed as they emerge, the fortress will fall into our hands.

16. What is the nature of the Self?

What exists in truth is the Self alone. The world, the individual soul,
and God are appearances in it. like silver in mother-of-pearl, these
three appear at the same time, and disappear at the same time. The Self
is that where there is absolutely no "I" thought. That is called
"Silence". The Self itself is the world; the Self itself is "I"; the
Self itself is God; all is Siva, the Self..................From the
SPIRITUAL TEACHING of RAMANA MAHARSHI Introduction by C.G.Jung chapter:

Я просил сил… А жизнь дала мне трудности, чтобы сделать меня сильным.
Я просил мудрости… А жизнь дала мне проблемы для разрешения.
Я просил богатства… А жизнь дала мне мозг и мускулы, чтобы я мог работать.
Я просил возможность летать…А жизнь дала мне препятствия, чтобы я их преодолевал.
Я просил любви… А жизнь дала мне людей, которым я мог помогать в их проблемах.
Я просил благ… А жизнь дала мне возможности.
Я ничего не получил из того, о чем просил. Но я получил все, что мне было нужно.

The Supreme Yoga of Wisdom


1. Yoga is uniting the responsibility of being everything with the freedom of being nothing.

2. For the blessed, the movement to maintain the body is as vast as the universe. For the ignorant, the same movement is ever more confining.

3. Action taken from a state of pure fulfillment brings the cosmos into a state of perfection even if it is as small as the blink of an eyelid. Action taken from a state of unfulfillment is a waste of effort even if supported by an infinite number of gods with an infinite array of powers.

4. The state if perfection is only known by the Awakened Ones, the gods themselves come down and cajole Them to make noises with Their lips.

5. The spontaneous feeling of "where has the world gone?" is the first
opening into Self Recognition.

6. To such a Yogi, the world may strike back with great fury, yet the smile of God
is ever etched into his/her heart.

7. Supreme Wisdom is eternally realized in a state of Supreme Play.

8. For the ignorant however, all the worlds wisdom is but a burden to be heaved on others.

9. Supreme Wisdom is gained in strange moments, like the gap between: dream and sleep, fear and hopelessness, wonder and satisfaction, tension and release, sound and soundless, life and death.

10. Whoever creates a problem out of thought does not understand the mind.

11. The blessed one is willing to arrest the flow of the entire universe if only for a
moment of amusement out of His/Her own state of Supreme Trust, the deluded one however, is afraid of interfering with his/her own body out of fear it may fall
apart.

12. Supreme Wisdom is gained in extreme moments: the moment of birth, the onset of death, the emptiness of non-activity, the total engagement of over extending ones capacities, the feeling of complete inability, the feeling of total power, the feeling of utter worthlessness, the feeling of infinite majesty, the feeling of total stupidity, the feeling of total enlightenment.

13. The purpose of Supreme Wisdom is to extract all sense of purpose from the cosmos, look at it, and laugh.

14. The Yogi achieves this great laughter not by sitting alone in a cave, but by fearlessly and recklessly absorbing the world process, from the plants and frogs to the gods and devas, into His/Her Consciousness of Bliss, and filling the hearts of all beings with His/Her childlike wonder.

15. What can the gods say to such a One? Their dismay is heightened when they see others believing they can understand Their Ways.

16. Supreme Wisdom has nothing to do with pleasure or pain, knowing or unknowing, being or non-being, it is a mark of the deluded to think that by controlling, heightening or diminishing these he/she shall come to the state of eternal peace.

17. The transferring of Supreme Wisdom from one being to another is the Supreme Entertainment of the cosmos, all other dramas are but the play of shadowy figures in the light of such a Happening.

18. Supreme Wisdom rests alone in Itself, all other apparently independent entities are only thin copies of this Supreme Aloneness.

19. For the blessed one, time is a servant of little use, for the deluded one, time is
a master of unending opposition.

20. When Supreme Wisdom is gained, it is at once lost. This is the Supreme Mystery.

21. Ordinary thoughts are radiant with Supreme Wisdom.

HEAVY BAGGAGE

Cast all burdens to Guru's ever loving care,

But don't ever take that heavy luggage back,

That's a deadly sin one should never ever dare,

And shows in much needed faith, a mighty lack.

One's much better off to leave it on the rack.



What's my puny effort compared to his great power?

I wait for death of ego mind when he'll choose the hour.

Meanwhile one tries to do the very best one can,

And leave the rest to him.That's the hero's path for man

If you can start the day without caffeine,If you can get going without pep pills,If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains.If you can resist complaining and boring people with you troubles,If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it,If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when,through no faults of yours, something goes wrong,If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,If you can ignore a friend´s limited education and never correct him,If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,If you can face the world without lies and deceit,If you can conquer tension without medical help,If you can relax without liqour,If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,If you can say honestly that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, relegion or politics,Then you've almost reached the level of consciousness of your Dog

Meditation
is not about
building yourself up
or trying to be a certain way.

It is not about becoming
a peaceful person
or a wise person
or even an enlightened person.

In meditation
you simply become aware
of what is here.

You turn your focus
back upon yourself
and notice what presents itself.

If you do this,
the ego structure
begins to be peeled away.

Behind all the desires,
distractions, opinions,
beliefs, worries
and emotions.

Behind everything
that the mind has built
upon itself
in order to feel important
and in control
is something
overwhelmingly tender
and vulnerable.

Even painful.

A sense of being
very small and alone
and all of the fear
and helplessness
that goes with it.

And by survival instinct,
you don't want to feel it,
you don't want to see it.

The very drive of the ego
is to get as far away
from this vulnerability as possible.

You want to fit in
or at least stand out.

Nobody wants to be a nobody.

But if you can allow yourself
to feel it.

If you can surrender and
allow yourself to be that small
helpless nobody.

If you allow it all to be as it is
at the very core,
then you fall into the essence
which is behind it.

You become immersed
in what is behind it.

And that is love,
that is peace.

You do not have love and peace
as though it was an object to attain,
you dissolve into it.

It bubbles up
from your essence
and spills into
every level of your being
because you have let go
of the very idea of
trying to be a someone

I, the awareness, exist every moment....When I become aware of body, It exist as a witness of my body...When I become aware of world, It exist as a witness of world...When I become aware of my sensual experience, It exist as a witness of ...that sensual experience...When I become aware of my mind, It exist as a witness of mind...When I become aware of my ego, It exist as a witness of my EGO...When I become aware of this awareness, It witnesses itself...Catch it from any where and just be with it with faith and reverence and it reveals itself...

Charity of Nine Rupee

Baba put his right hand in his shirt pocket twice , took out Rs.5 and Rs.4 and gave them as charity to Lakshmi Bai. Baba explained the significance of these nine rupees as the nine qualities a devotee should have 1. Absence of egoism 2. Absence of jealousy 3. Untiring service 4. Absence of world desires 5. Compete faith in Guru 6. Peaceful nature 7 . Desire to know the truth 8. Absence of envy and 9. Absence of self - boasting and finding faults in others. Unless a devotee improved these nine qualities , he could not have true devotion to reach God. Thus baba taught to Lakshmi Bai even in his last moment
