What can a Jnani see?
« on: June 05, 2009, 12:32:56 PM »
Once Swami Rajeswarananda had planned to take a big
party of pilgrims with Bhagavan in their midst.  Bhagavan
Ramana said:  "I did not consent to go and the thing had
to be dropped.  What is there I could go and see?  I see
nothing.  What is the use of my going anywhere? Nothing
can be seen by me. 'Paarthal Ondrum Terihiradhu Illai'."

This is one of the self-revealing statements which escape
Bhagavan's lips. 

The following remarks were also made by Bhagavan, on the
same night.

"The Jnani sees he is the Self and it is on that Self, as the
screen that the various cinema-pictures of what is called
the world pass.  He remains unaffected by the shadows
which play on the surface of that screen.  See with the
physical eye, and you see the world.  See with the eye
of realization, everything appears as the Self, Brahma-mayam."

"To see an object that is in the dark, both the eye and the
light of the lamp are required.  To see the light only the eye
is enough.  But to see the Sun, there is no need of any
other light.
