Reading other people's minds
« on: February 07, 2009, 09:52:25 AM »
Once a devotee said:

The Bahaists read others' minds.

Bhagavan Ramana:  Yes. That is possible.  Your thoughts wre ready by another. There must be be one to know your mind.  That is the Truth, always present which is to be realized.  Truth does not waver.

Devotee: Show me Grace.

Bhagavan Ramana:  Grace alwsys is, and is not given. Why do you
consider the pros and cons of Bahaulla or others being incarnations or otherwise?  Know Thyself. Regarding everything as Truth. Regard him also as the Truth.  Can he exist besides Truth?  Your beliefs may change but not Truth. 

Devotee: Show me the truth of Siddhanta etc.,

Bhagavan Ramana:  Follow their instructions and then if you have doubts you may ask.  Adherence to those instructions will take you only to Mouna.  Differences are perceived in external objects only.
If you follow their instructions all differences will be lost.  No one
but the son of a king can be called a prince.  So also only That which is perect is called Perfection.  One should not be content only with mere discipleship, initiation, ceremony of surrender, etc., These are external phenomena. Never forget the Truth underlying all phenomena.

Devotee: What is the significance of the Silence of Sri Dakshinamoorthy?

Bhagavan Ramana:  Many are the explanations given by scholars.
Have it in any way you please.
