Nin Ishtam, En Ishtam (Your Wish is my wish)
« on: July 24, 2009, 12:17:22 PM »
Bhagavan Ramana, as we all know taught only Self Enquiry and
Surrender.  For people who thought surrender was easy, He
cautioned that the surrender is as difficult as self enquiry.  He
spoke in the Who am I? teachings to M. Sivaprakasam Pillai:
Non attachment is Jnana. Both are the same and not different.
Non attachment is one where the mind does not go behind anything.
Jnanam is one where nothing appears.

He has also described the surrender in the words, which He used
often:  Nin Ishtam, En ishtam.  Your wish is my wish.  God's wish
should be our wish too.  If one wishes anything that God does not
wish for you, one can never get it.

In Sri Arunachala Aksharamana Malai, He says in Verse 107:

O the Hill of Patience.  Please receive with patience my lowly words (my poem). It is Your Wish, O Arunachala!

Nin Ishtam, En Ishtam is Saranagati.  Who am I? enquiry is
Atma Vichara.  In fact, both are the two sides of the same coin.

Arunachala Siva.
