Pearls of Wisdom through Mr. Nome - 12
« on: April 17, 2009, 10:34:03 AM »
Mr. Nome continues....

Over the years, this body has been temporarily saved from death
and similar things that would have otherwise been considered
calamities -- disease, accidents, violence etc., At one time, these
would have been conceived as harrowing adventures.  The Maharshi's
Grace and Truth, though, have not only spared this life, albeit
temporarily, but have completely and unfailingly removed any
possible fear or suffeering.  Absorbed in That, there is no second,
no fear and no death.  Blissful immortality is a plain and simple
fact.  Just as Being, it is the natural state, the Innate, and that
is all.

*

All of the above is, perhaps, more a thin patchwork, a collection
of comments, not entirely in chronological order, of an inner life
than a recollection of outer events, for the Grace and Truth of the
Maharshi are revealed in a manner transcendent of all phenomena.
Whatever little is of worth here to one who reads this, it is all of
the Maharshi.  It can be summed up simply as:

Everything that Bhagavan Ramana has said about practice and
Self-Realization is true.  What He has proclaimed to be Real is
alone Real.  It is all true, competely true.  There is no doubt of this.  Timeless Presence.  Eternal Truth.

*

Salutation to the feet of the Guru Sri Dakshinamurti, ho sees
within himself the entire universe, which resembles the image
of a city in mirror, which appears to be outside him just as objects
seen in a dream are outside the dreamer, but which merges into
himself in the state of Realization - for then he sees the Self alone,
just as the awakened dreamer sees himself alone and not the objects
he dreamt.
