Ramana Maharishi

Inquiry and Renunciation.

Extract...


If the moments that are wasted in thinking of the objects that are not the Self are spent on inquiry into the Self, Self realization will be attained in a very short time!

  • Until the mind becomes established in the Self, some kind of bhavana is essential (contemplation of a personified god or goddess with deep emotion or religious feeling), otherwise the mind will be frequently assailed by wayward thoughts or sleep.

  • The method of inquiry into oneself should be practiced as soon as the mental strength which is the result of such bhavana is attained

  • The excellence of the practice (sadhana) lies in not giving room for a single mental concept.

  • One should practice until the state of 'I' and 'Mine' no longer exists.

  • The state of being free from mental concepts is called dwelling in solitude.

  • Maturity of thought and inquiry alone removes attachment to the body - not removing oneself from stations in life.

  • Renouncing the world in the mind is real asceticism.

  • Detachment from samsara is real renunciation.

  • Remain a silent witness of all activities taking place.

  • Only one who is free from all latent tendencies (impressions) is a Sage.
