Inquiring into the nature of one’s self that is in bondage, and realising one’s true nature is release.

As thoughts arise, destroying them utterly without any residue in the very place of their origin is non-attachment. Just as the pearl-diver ties a stone to his waist, sinks to the bottom of the sea and there takes the pearls, so each one of us should be endowed with non-attachment, dive within oneself and obtain the Self-Pearl.

To keep the mind constantly turned within and to abide thus in the Self, is alone Atmavichara (Self-enquiry), whereas dhyana (meditation) consists in fervent contemplation of the Self as Sat-Chit-Ananda (Being-Consciousness-Bliss). ~ Sri Ramana Maharshi

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...

To the knower of the reality [mey-jnani], who is asleep within the fleshy body, which is [like] a cart, His activities [in waking and in dream], His absorption [nishtha] and His sleep are similar to the moving of the cart, its standing still and the cart being unyoked, to one who is sleeping in the cart.

D.: Does Sri Bhagavan advocate advaita?

M.: Dvaita and advaita are relative terms. They are based on the sense of duality. The Self is as it is. There is neither dvaita nor advaita. I AM THAT I AM. Simple Being is the Self.

D.: This is not mayavada (the doctrine of maya).

M.: The mind is maya. Reality lies beyond the mind. So long as the mind functions there is duality, maya, etc. Once it...

1100. Being still and attending to the supreme reality [Self] by means of the para-vak [the supreme word ‘I-I’] uttered by the heart, alone is praising the perfect primal Supreme, which is the inner light [of knowledge] that is shining in the heart and that is devoid of names and forms, which are unreal illusions like the blueness of the sky.

[Sadhu Om's comment: Atma-anusandhana, the state...
