Dear DRPSSVN Raju, you are right.  Bhakti - devotion
leads to Atma Bhakti or Self -Surrender, and it
culminates in enquriy and self realization.  Bhagavan
used to say:  Bhakti is Jnana Matha.  Devotion is the
mother of Wisdom.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, all the aids are useful and they
have become plenty nowadays.  But there are several
precautions to be taken.  a) Firstly these are quick
fixes but there is no quickfix for self realization. b)
Many of them are bogus, like small paperbacks that
are there to teach the art of management.  c) All
these books or atleast most of them are written by
people who are not self realized and it is like a blind
leading a blind.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju,  Diving deeply is taking the "I thought"
to the Heart, the Self.  Diving is pushing inward.

Dear Kannan05, There is no freedom no bondage, no
independence, no dependence, if one could shed
all thoughts that bind people.

Dear Sankar, Remaining in Spirituality is just Being.
No questions, no answers, no doubts, no clarifications.

General Discussion / Re: Anyone have info about Michael Langford?
« on: August 14, 2008, 10:25:29 AM »
Dear nonduel,  I am happy to read your posts.  The forced
silence, I had, was to read some books like GVK and Padamalai.
I did not say that Michael contradicted Bhagavan.  I only
said that he was rephrasing and paraphrasing Bhagavan's
teachings, which have been done many others.  Who can
add or deduct anything from what Bhagavan Ramana had
said.  Incidentally, are you still eager to have a living Guru?
The living Gurus are going to Kashmir to solve problems!
But Bhagavan did not move out of Tiruvannamalai, because
He was solving problems with His Heart.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, this is what Bhagavan has said in
Who am I?  When He said, think "I-I-I", it is not
mechanical repetition, but a 'bhavana' or conviction
or an attitude.  It is not mouthing of the word but
the deeper meditative contemplation.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, Thoughts are the hindrance that
gives rise to objective universe, the personal gods and
I am the body feeling.

Dear DRPSSVN Raju, I saw your excellent piece.  Only one
addition.  The spiritual heart is all pervsaive and is everywhere.
It is called the Self, Brahman or Atma.  The Heart Centre,
for enquiry lies on the right side of the chest and is different
from the blood pumping organ.  By enquiring into the Heart
Centre, one merges with the Heart.

Arunachala Siva.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: False "I"
« on: August 13, 2008, 07:50:31 PM »
Dear DRPSSVN Raju, the false I is the ego.  When the
ego is destroyed, the real I,  Bhagavan calls it 'Thaan'
in Tamil and is translated as "I-I" shines forth.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: What is self-enquiry
« on: August 13, 2008, 07:47:38 PM »
All thoughts are mental manifestations and are obstacles.
When thoughts are killed as they come out of the fortress,
at the end, there will not be anyone inside the fortress and
it will be ours.

« on: August 13, 2008, 07:42:56 PM »
Dear DRPSSVN Raju, mental activity is necessary for the
practioners, the bhaktas who do the self enquiry.  The
mental activity is :  I am Brahman, bhavana or attitude.  Staying
in Brahman is after the self is realized.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear non duel,  I am happy with your post.  The Heart
and the Heart Centre are much talked about topics,
in David Godman's blog.  The Heart Centre is a location
for the 'sadhakas', the practisers and is localized on
the right side of the chest.  Heart is all pervasive.  Bhagavan
has said this in Ramana Gita (Hrudaya Guhara Madhye...)
and also in Ulladu Narpadu Anubandam.  I told David
that I need a Heart Centre and for that matter, all the
'sadhakas'.  Once one knows Heart, he will not be
interested in the Heart Centre.  Will the sugar
keep a sugar candy in its pocket?

Arunachala Siva.

Dear jimrich, Prior to thoughts, there is Awareness.  But
prior to Awareness, there is nothing, since It is the First
Cause, the Causeless Cause.
