Mind in Day by Day - 7
« on: June 28, 2009, 01:31:20 PM »
On 28th June 1946, in the afternoon Khanna's wife
appealed to Bhagavan in  writing:  'I am not learned
in the scriptures and I find the method of Self enquiry
too hard for me.  I am a woman with seven children and
a lot of household cares and it leaves me little time for
meditation.  I request Bhagavan Ramana to give me some
simpler and easier method.'

Bhagavan:  No learning or knowledge of scriptures is
necessary to know the Self, as the man requires a mirror
to see himself.  All kwowledge is required only to be given
up eventually as non-Self.  Nor is household work or cares
with children necessarily an obstacle. If you can do nothing
more, at least continue saying 'I-I' to yourself mentally
all the time, as advised in Who am I?, whatever work you
may be doing and whether you are sitting, standing or walking.  'I' is the name of God.  It is the first and greatest of all mantras.  Even OM is second to it.

Arunachala Siva.
