Ramana Maharshi

If the mind, which is the instrument of knowledge and, is the, basis of all activity, subsides, the perception of the world as an objective reality ceases.

Teachings by Ramana Maharshi

Ramana Maharshi taught that constant attention to the inner awareness of “I” or “I am” is the most efficient and direct way of discovering our true nature. His teachings and his form of Self inquiry are conveyed in the book Be As You Are. More information can be found on sriramanamaharshi.org.

To enquire ‘Who am I that is in bondage?’ and to know one’s real nature is alone Liberation. To keep the mind constantly turned within and to abide thus in the Self, is alone Atma-vichara (Self-enquiry), whereas dhyana (meditation) consists in fervent contemplation of the Self as Sat-Chit-Ananda (Being-Consciousness-Bliss).
