Maharshi's Gospel and Talks - 19
« on: June 22, 2009, 01:15:27 PM »
Talk No. 238 is briefly as under:

In answer to some question, Bhagavan Ramana said: "There
is a state when words cease and silence prevails."

Devotee:  How to communicate thought to each other?

Bhagavan:  That is only when there is notion of two!

Devotee:  How to get peace?

Bhagavan:  That is the natural state.  The mind obstructs the
innate peace.  Our investigation is only in the mind.  Investigate
the mind; it will disappear.  There is no enmity by name mind.
Because of the emergence of thoughts, we surmise something
from which they start.  That we term mind.  When we probe
to see what it is, there is nothing like it.  After it has vanished,
Peace will be found to remain eternal.

Devotee: Emerson says:  "Soul answers soul by itself. ---
not by description of words.

Bhagavan:  Quite so.  However much you learn, there will be
no bounds to knowledge.  You ignore the doubter but try to
solve the doubts.  On the other hand, hold on to the doubter
and doubts will disappear. 

Devotee:  Then the question resolves itself to knowing the Self.

Bhagavan:  Quite so.

Arunachala Siva.
