You say the jnani sees the path, treads it, comes across obstacles, avoids them, etc. In whose eyesight is all this, in the jnani’s or
yours?

(Day by Day)

मनश्चेन्न लग्नं गुरोरंघ्रिपद्मे ततः किं ततः किं ततः किं ततः किम् ।।

Manaschenna lagnam Gurorangri padme, Thatha kim Thathah Kim, Thathah kim Thathah kim

If the mind does not remain at the Lotus feet of Guru, What is the use? What is the use? What is the use!!

There is no ‘all’, apart from God, for Him to pervade. He alone is.

The birth of the ‘I-thought’ is one’s own birth, its death is the person’s death.

Get rid of the ‘I-thought’. So long as ‘I’ is alive, there is grief. When
‘I’ ceases to exist, there is no grief. Consider the state of sleep!

The pure Self is simple Being.
It does not associate itself with
objects and become conscious
as in the wakeful state.


What you now call consciousness in
the present state is associated consciousness
requiring brain, mind, body, etc., to depend upon.
But in sleep consciousness persisted without these.

The Guru does not bring about Self-Realisation.
He simply removes the obstacles to it.

D.: How can one know whether a
particular individual is competent to be a Guru?


M.: By the peace of mind found in
his presence and by the sense of respect you feel for him.

Not to think “I am Brahman” or “All is Brahman” is itself jivanmukti.

Birth and rebirth are mentioned only
to make you investigate the question and
find out that there are neither births nor rebirths.
They relate to the body and not to the Self.
Know the Self and be not perturbed by doubts.

Thanks for this wonderful pick from Talks 111. I can retrace my steps and I was in this trap for a long time during 2007-2008 period :) after listening to some so-called gurus. Wish I had read Talks at that time - would not have spent 2-3 years in that mode

Annamalai Swami:
[if you do not consider Ramana was different from annamalai swami]

Quote
Q: Bhagavan said that repeating 'I am Self' or 'I am not the body' is an aid to enquiry but it does not constitute enquiry itself.

AS: The meditation "I am not the body or the mind, I am the immanent Self" is a great aid as long as one is not able to do self inquiry properly or constantly.
Bhagavan said, 'Keeping the mind in the heart is self-enquiry'. If you cannot do thys by asking "who am I?" or by taking the "I"-thought back to its source, then meditation on the awareness "I am the all pervasive Self" is a great aid.

Bhagavan often siad that we should read and study the Ribhu Gita regularly.

In Ribhu Gita its said: "That Bhavana "I am not the body, I am not the mind, I am Brahman, I am everything" is to be repeated again and again until it becomes natural state.

Harih OM!

Hmmm... That is something seemingly contradicting at least to my little intellect. I am sure Bhagawan and Annamalai swamy are not contradicting each other. Any explanations?
