The Way of Selflessness - Sri Ramana's Way.
Constantly remaining in the true self only removes all types of attachments.
That is knowledge.
A Saint will firmly place himself in true self and will never have
The feelings that the world is different from him.
The Main quality of saint is he always remains in a state,
Where without any Partiality he gives equal importance to
All living things on par with him.
Without getting disturbed by knowledge derived from memory ;
Always remaining in the true self is the liberation from life.
All types of doubts will get clarified only when that true self is experienced.
Clarity will not be gained through other means of exploring with scientific knowledge of scriptures.
The experience of true self is knowledge.
Everyone readily agrees that there is a creator for this entire universe.
This basic knowledge everyone approves.
When Mind is there, then only the three feelings about Yourself,
This world and God can be experienced, remembered,
And felt through thoughts by You.
When Mind is eliminated what remains is You,
that is Your true self.
If You have some form, God will also have some form.
When Your true self is not having any shape, how can God will have any form.
When Eye is not there in body, How we can see and experience this world.
This world is”” exclusively experienced “”
By that Mind with its five senses of the Body.
It means the world is nothing but mind.
When Mind is not there this world is not there.
Whoever follows whichever path, When he experiences the real thing,
The reality of his true self,
Then he will peacefully absorb himself in eternal Bliss.
This is the Eternal Truth.
---- Sri Ramana Maharshi.
