Some say there are three aspects of reality — Truth-Wisdom-Bliss. He who seeks Truth becomes a Yogi, he who seeks wisdom becomes a gnani; he who seeks happiness becomes the man of action.

The opportunity here in satsang and with me is to discover who you are. This is the highest good. Begin with yourself through introspection.

Can there be a world without you to know it? If you are 'not', can knowledge of the world or anything else appear?

Therefore, you must be earlier, for you are the observer of them.

Even existence is not, if 'you' are not. Who, therefore, are you?

Solve this first.

So, you say, 'I have suffered.' I am not
going to fight with you about it. But also
there are people who experience a deep
sense of gratitude or even joy behind
their apparent suffering. I won't call this
suffering really, because there is no
resistance here. They have understood
and accepted that grace sometimes
manifests as an intense inner burning
that purges the being of conceptual
and emotional toxins, and to that
extent they remain in peace.

God can never be close.

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 idea of enlightenment is of utmost importance. Just to know that there is such possibility, changes one’s entire outlook. It acts like a burning match in a heap of saw dust. All the great teachers did nothing else. A spark of truth can burn up a mountain of lies.

There is a mystery within all beings bursting to reveal itself, in the one who become quiet enough to discover it. In this discovery a benevolent force shines spontaneously from your presence towards all beings, and this Light cannot help but illuminate the world.

Don’t take life so seriously. This world is a terrible place, there is no safety here. But what are we to do? We must stop taking life so seriously. Delusion can be overcome by holding steadfastly to one philosophy: everything here is nothing more than God’s motion picture. Don’t make a fuss about anything. Whenever you worry, remember, you are deepening the cosmic delusion within you. It is your own dreams that frighten you. In every form of sense experience you must remind yourself, ‘IT IS A DREAM!’ So don’t be attached to the passing dreams of life. Live for God and God alone.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

Once sitting before Him, the following thoughts rose in my mind with great force and were running repeatedly for a long time: ‘Do not argue on controversial points of philosophy or read too much of
philosophical books.’
‘Silently practise either vichara or dhyanam’
‘Do not do anything which you know to be wrong.’

Some of Bhagavan’s personal instructions to me were:
(i) If you observe the breathing one-pointedly, such attention will lead you into kumbhaka (retention), which is jnana pranayama.
(ii) The more you humble yourself, the better it is for you.
(iii) You should look upon the world only as a dream.
(iv) Except attending to the duty-work in life, the rest of the time should be spent in atma nishta (absorption in the Self).
(v) Do not cause slightest hindrance or disturbance to others.
(vi) Do all your work yourself.
(vii) Both likes and dislikes should be discarded and eschewed.
(vii) With attention focused on the first person and on the heart within, one should relentlessly practice ‘Who am I?’ During such practice, the mind might suddenly spring up; so you have to vigilantly
pursue the vichara ‘Who am I?’

Sri Ramana was a sarvajnani (all-knower). I got many proofs of it. My father gave me pocket-money of three annas a day. For that
amount I would buy sambrani (incense), which was burnt in a brazier in Bhagavan’s hall. One day I did not get the pocket money and therefore refrained from going to Bhagavan.

The next day, Bhagavan graciously remarked, “Yesterday you did not come because you could not get sambrani. Veneration in the heart is enough.”

My father was suddenly transferred to Vellore. None of us, particularly myself, wanted to leave Tiruvannamalai since darshan of Bhagavan would then be denied. We ventilated our grievance to Bhagavan.
He gave me a benign smile. A few days after, strangely, the transfer order was cancelled!

I noticed the strange way in which the doubts in one’s mind got answered. The doubt you had would mysteriously be got expressed by someone else in the hall to Bhagavan and He would not only give the
answer but look at you with a smile as if to say, ‘Has your doubt been cleared?’

Bhagavan would be seated like a rock with eyes open for hours together and silence would pervade the hall; and everyone’s heart would be filled with peace and stillness. This silence was His real teaching!

Сердцу ничто не может помешать,
сердцу никогда ничто не угрожает,
его ничто не может смутить,
ничто не может его ограничить,

сердце не зависит от чужих слов и мнений,
оно само - создатель и владыка всех мнений и слов,
в сердце нет непостоянства,
оно - сама вечность и неизменность,

сердце - не колеблется,
не терпит ущерба,
оно - сама стабильность,

оно ни за что не цепляется
и ничего не отвергает,
оно ни к чему не привязано
и ни от ничего не отвращается,
но все ищут и любят лишь его,

в нем нет никакого изъяна
или недостатка,
оно - источник всей чистоты,
совершенства и полноты,

это сердце ни от чего и ни от кого не зависит,
но все зависят от него,

сердце ничего не боится,
оно само - страх страха,
сердце - ни любит со страстью,
ни ненавидит,
оно - просто сама любовь,

сердце не нуждается
в чужом признании,
но все мудрые признают
его своим господином,

сердце не страдает,
оно - само счастье,
уничтожающее все страдания,

сердце ничего не ищет,
оно само - величайшая находка,
сердце ничего не желает,
оно само - исполнение всех желаний,

сердце не основывается
ни на чем внешнем или внутреннем,
оно само - основание всего,

сердце ни на что не опирается,
оно само - безопорная опора всего,
сердце никогда не запутывается,
оно способно распутать
любые сплетения кармы,

в сердце нет умственной сложности
или разнородности,
оно - бесконечная простота единства,
в сердце если и есть слезы -
то только слезы счастья, благодати и радости,

это сердце не смотрит
ни на что в этом мире,
кроме самого Бога,
оно - и есть Бог,

это сердце не рождается, не умирает,
оно-сама жизнь
за пределами того и другого,

о ученик, это - твое сердце,
если ищешь Освобождения -
всегда смотри в него пристально и внимательно!

don't be a warrior, just be yourself.

Don’t waste energy preparing for this mind-battle.
You are sharpening your sword
to kill dragons that don’t exist.
The more you think about them,
the more you empower illusions
and become deluded by them.
And then you are compelled to do battle
with an imagined enemy;
one created by your own projection,
arising out of your own fear and
appearing inside your mind alone.
In truth, man can only fight against himself.
So the way is not to fight,
rather, be in the fullness of your Peace
—the Peace that exists before duality arose.

Discrimination is meant for one who is in the process of evolution. You need strict discrimination to understand the difference between what is good for your spiritual progress and what will create obstacles in your path. A seeker must discriminate between what is eternal and what is non-eternal. But once you have attained the state of perfection, you have renounced everything, even discrimination. You cannot hold onto anything. Transcending all dualities, you become the universe; you become expansiveness itself. You become both day and night. You go beyond purity and impurity.

*** In Search of the Divine World ***

When studying the Upanishads in my early days,
I always visualized the divine abode in the Sun god and
was performing the practices enjoined in certain texts.

Even later, after settling at the abode of Sri Maharshi,
I continued this practice (upasana).

It proved very hard to succeed in this process and
I had to undergo very trying experiences,
so I referred the whole matter to Bhagavan.

"So you want to go to the divine world?" asked he.

"That is what I am trying to obtain;
that is what the scriptures prescribe," I answered.

"But where are you now?" the Master asked.

I replied, "I am in your presence."

"Poor thing! You are here and now in the divine world,
and you want to obtain it elsewhere!

Know that to be the divine world
where one is firmly established in the Divine.
Such a one is full (purna);
he encompasses and transcends all that is manifest.

He is the substratum of the screen
on which the whole manifestation runs like the picture film.

Whether moving pictures run or not,
the screen is always there
and is never affected by the action of the pictures.

You are here and now in the divine world.

You are like a thirsty man wanting to drink,
while he is all the time standing neck deep in the Ganga.

Give up all efforts and surrender.
Let the 'I' that wants the divine world die,
and the Divine in you will be realised here and now.

For it is already in you as the Self,
not different from the Divine (Brahman),
nameless and formless.

It is already in you,
so how are you to obtain that which ever remains obtained?"

"The Self (atman) in you is surely not different from US."
Thus spoke Bhagavan.
