Let all of us travel together

The Way of Selflessness - Sri Ramana's Way.


When Friendship and Compassion are associated that is called as love.
That love is far superior than both of them.

The Most essential qualities which a practicer should adopt is,
he has to remain without any sense of belonging
and remaining in a sense of detachment,
without identifying himself with body with his passions and attachments.

Why we are doing all these Practices,??

It is for our liberation from unreality only.

Our Pride and Passions are main stumbling blocks in the path of knowing the self.

Due to our identification of everything with our body,
And all associations which are attributed to that body like ,
A form of Beauty or ugly , Education and experience of work,
Wealth and health, name and fame, Power and Pride,
Authority and associations, assets and liabilities,
The various issues associated with family,
All these are contributing for nurturing our Sense of Self identification with body
 and associated Attachments with various things.

There is no possibility of removing this Pride and passions
with our advanced scientific knowledge and reasoning.

It is only possible only with serious feelings of renouncement.

With firm orderly step by step practice,
with proper understanding of the reality, they can be removed.

For this removal, humble way of attending to duties
without any expectations is required.
They are removed when we execute our duties
without waiting for the anticipated results.

They are removed when all the results are received with total equality.

---- Sri Ramana Maharshi.
