The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Summa Iru
« on: November 12, 2013, 07:50:29 AM »
Summa Iru means 'just be' and not to be this or that. To be the self one must remove the false identification of self with the not self. Summa Iru is detachment. Let the thoughts come and go. Let the activities and work go on automatically. Don't attach any significance to them. The effort is the bondage. Every thought and ego will be destroyed if u 'just be' the self. It can be practiced by simply observing the mind. By being detached to your thoughts and observing the workings of your mind.It is also helpful to remind ourselves while practicing that I am different from the thoughts, body. All thoughts will themselves get destroyed and the feeling of 'I am' remains. Hope it was helpful.

Q: How can I attain Self Realization?

M: Realization is nothing to be gained afresh, it is already there. All that is necessary is to get rid of the thought 'I have not realised'.
     Stillness or peace is Realization. There is no moment when the Self is not. So long as there is doubt or the feeling of non-realization, the                 
     attempt should be made to rid oneself of these thoughts. They are due to the identification of the self with the not self. When the not
     self disappears, the self alone remains. To make room, it is enough that the cramping be removed; room is not brought in from
     elsewhere.

namaskar
