Cessation of Vrittis
« on: June 16, 2009, 11:03:54 AM »
On 7th April 1946, a visitor said: "In the Pondicherry Aurobindo
Ashram, it is said that the final stage of spiritual progress is
to become the Purushottama and it would be seem that activity
is predicated of that Purushottama, i.e. some vrittis would
seem to be associated with that state, whereas it is believed
by other schools that cessation of of all vrittis is liberation."

Bhagavan Ramana said: "You say, all schools advise you to
give up vrittis so that you can reach your final goal, whether
it is becoming Purushottama or something else.  You must
cease to be the other three kinds of purusha i.e. adhama,
madhyama and uttama and become Purushottama.  This is
accepted.  Whether, when you transcend these three kinds
and cease to be the ulitmate Purusha there is any vritti
still left, is a matter which you need not concern yourself now.
Attain that state and then see yourself what that state is and
whether there is any vritti in it.
