The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Non-existent Mind
« on: December 08, 2010, 09:45:03 PM »
Ramana said there is no mind. Yoga-Vasishtha says world is son of a barren woman. So we are all imagining mind & world but in reality they are not there.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Dream more real than Waking
« on: December 02, 2010, 08:33:59 PM »
Mental states in ascending order are waking, dream, sleep, deep sleep, ati-sushupti / yoga-nidra, turiya and turiyatita. So logic says that dream is higher and more real than waking.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Bhagavad & Ramana Gita

Emphasis in former is on duty, surrounding Nature & Prakritti, caste system and yoga with a streak of harp on the undying Self. It considers females inferior to males. Latter has no bias towards genders and is free from the caste overtones.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Vicious Mind
« on: March 08, 2010, 08:18:30 PM »
Mind is so vicious that it always arrogates itself  variously as judge or foundation or referential  benchmark or central basic reality or so on and so forth. It uses occult sciences, astrology and other theories & logics to substantiate its intuitional imaginations along with their  discoveries &  inventions as eternal  truths.

When Ramana looked into the eyes of some one, some thing transpired which changed the man's attitude towards his  life & the world. This particular faculty was not there in Nisargadatta & other teachers.
