""SCATTER ROSES OF LOVE AS YOU GO ,
FOR YOU MAY NOT TREAD THIS PATH AGAIN.''
-- Omkara Swamy.
Come to Ashram.
Join with the ashram.
Assist the Ashram in its Humanitarian Projects.
Let all of us travel together
The ways of selflessness - Sri Ramana's Way.
Don’t focus your attention on your body.
Just a simple healthy maintenance is enough for it.
When you strive for the welfare of the body,
the sense of self will stabilize in your mind.
This body is just a tool to be used for experiencing the true self.
Just feed that body with necessary fuel to keep it in a clean good working condition.
Your duties and your meditation, both to be carried out simultaneously.
“”I am doing so much of meditation, I have progressed a lot in the path,
I have reached the ultimate bliss,
I found an excellent Guru, I am traveling in the excellent path””,
all these thoughts will give strength and ensure
the development of sense of self identification with body.
In fact you have to remain in a thoughtless state.
Whether you are doing meditation or not ,
if you can give least importance to those thoughts,
then those thoughts will loose their power and
become ineffective and disappear from your mind.
---- Sri Ramana Maharshi.
