Глаза джняни уподобляют глазам мертвого козла; они всегда открыты, никогда не закрываются. Они блестят, но ничего не видят, хотя другим кажется, что они видят все.

Древние Риши сперва изучали вещественную науку,
Однако, не сумев получить в этом настоящего счастья,
Они пошли дальше, в направлении изучения ментального.
Здесь они совершили удивительные открытия,
К примеру, о способности к чтению мыслей других,
Об узнаванию о случившемся на огромной дистанции,
О вхождении в тело другого, о покидании своего,
Об излечении духа и тела рецитацией Мантры,
А также приобрели великое множество сил (так называемых сиддхи),
Но, в конце концов, осознав, что все эти чудесные силы
Никак не помогут в достижении Вечного Счастья,
Они направили всё внимание к реализации и познанию Души.
И в этом они обнаружили совершенное Довольство Духа -
Они достигли предельного Блага.
Здесь они испытали непревзойдённые радость и счастье,
И в том состоянии каждый из них восклицает:
"О, блаженен Я!", "О, благословлён Я!"
Та Высшая Истина, что они поняли в этом Знании,
Была провозглашена ими как Ишвара Дэва (Господь),
То есть просвещающий Дух Всего или Брахман
(Тот, прежде и выше кого нет вообще ничего),
И они объявили это как Источник целой Вселенной.

If I am, death is not.
If death is, I am not.
Why should I fear that which can only exist when I do not?

Uncertainties, doubts and fears are natural to everyone until the Self is realized. They are inseparable from the ego.

With the exception of very few who have gained higher spiritual tendencies in prior lives, Self-realization is not possible for anyone without the blessings of a guru. Think of the guru as the manifestation of God in this world. Take even the most insignificant word of the guru as an order and obey it. That is the real service to the guru. There is no greater austerity. The guru's blessings flow automatically to any obedient disciple. That is the real service to the guru.

Compassion does not see the faults of others. It does not see the weaknesses of people. It makes no distinction between good and bad people. Compassion cannot draw a line between two countries, two faiths or two religions. Compassion has no ego; thus there is no fear, lust or passion. Compassion simply forgives and forgets. Compassion is like a passage. Everything passes through it. Nothing can stay there. Compassion is love expressed in all its fullness.

The single biggest thing I learned was from an indigenous elder of Cherokee descent, Stan Rushworth, who reminded me of the difference between a Western settler mindset of "I have rights" and an indigenous mindset of "I have obligations." Instead of thinking that I am born with rights, I choose to think that I am born with obligations to serve past, present, and future generations, and the planet herself.

The real is simple, open, clear and kind, beautiful and joyous. It is completely free of contradictions. It is ever new, ever fresh, endlessly creative.

What is independent, uncreated, timeless and changeless, and yet ever new and fresh, is beyond the mind.

Just give full attention to what in you is crude and primitive, unreasonable and unkind, altogether childish, and you will ripen. It is the maturity of heart and mind that is essential. It comes effortlessly when the main obstacle is removed - inattention, unawareness. In awareness you grow.

The one who is free, is free from the psychological influence of the mind.
They don’t want anything from mind, they don’t hold on to any negative impression.

They have transcended it. As you can yourself - And will!

Because it is fixed in life that something is gonna turn up the pressure a little bit from time to time, to keep you moving. Otherwise you go to sleep, and you didn’t come to the earth to sleep. But to wake up!

Children, in the face of karmic experiences all your weapons of ego and strength are powerless unless you abandon them, following the Guru’s instructions and throw yourself down in humble surrender. You cannot escape karma. If God’s or the Guru’s Grace is with you, the arrow of karma, which has already left the bow of your past life, cannot hurt you.

JNANA ALONE IS EVERYTHING
Q: What is reality?
Ramana: Reality must be always real. It is not with forms and names. That which underlies these is the reality. It underlies limitations, being itself limitless. It is not bound. It underlies unrealities, itself being real. Reality is that which is. It is as it is. It transcends speech. It is beyond the expressions ‘existence, non-existence’, etc.
The reality which is the mere consciousness that remains when ignorance is destroyed along with knowledge of objects, alone is the Self [atma]. In that Brahma-swarupa [real form of Brahman], which is abundant Self-awareness, there is not the least ignorance. The reality which shines fully, without misery and without a body, not only when the world is known but also when the world is not known, is your real form [nija-swarupa].
The radiance of consciousness-bliss, in the form of one awareness shining equally within and without, is the supreme and blissful primal reality. Its form is silence and it is declared by jnanis to be the final and unobstructable state of true knowledge [jnana].
Know that jnana alone is non-attachment; jnana alone is purity; jnana is the attainment of God; jnana which is devoid of forgetfulness of Self alone is immortality; jnana alone is everything.
Be As You Are, the Teachings of Ramana Maharshi edited by David Godman, p 11
