Who am I, An Amazing Technique!
« on: November 25, 2009, 10:37:54 AM »
Who am I, is really an Amazing technique. It needs to be properly understood.
Annamalai Swami says: if you have liked self inquiry even a little, its more useful to practice self inquiry than any other practice.
Ramana mentions that self inquiry is the only direct way.
And all Advaita Vedanta texts speak very highly of Self inquiry.

Self inquiry is there in the scriptures ... but Ramana's commentry on Self Inquiry makes it absolutely clear!

Its very important to practice this ... throughout the day!

Love!

Who am I?  - the cute little book has to be read everyday.  Each
sentence throws up new insights on each morning.  I am reading
it since two years almost everyday.  Whenever I go to Tiruvannamalai, I take only this book and Sri Arunachala Stuti
Panchakam, both are pocket books.  Brahmasri Nochur Venkataraman
says that reading Who am I? and Dasa Sloki of Sri Sankara are the
essential reading for atma jnana sadhana.  When one has got time,
he can read Viveka Choodmani about 20 verses each day and Sad
Darsanam and Upadesa Saram of Bhagavan Ramana.

Thank you srkudai,

Arunachala Siva.

Udaiji!    yes. It is very very important to practice everyday and night. Everyday it gives new meanings. Due to the customs and traditions, while doing all vrathams and pujas,
Maharishi"s question also jumps into the mind. All the outside worships only qives some fruit and we have to eat the fruit. At the same time it seems it is difficult to give up at
once. The self enquiry is the only way to root out all karmas. Sometimes I get confused like  I only ask myself "to whome it arises?" The answer is it is me who is asking and the answer also coming from me. Can you explain....

Dear Ramanaduli,

"For whom it arises?"  - Ramanaduli

"It is for me" -  Ramanaduli

"Who am I?"  - Ramanaduli

No answer.  Mind dissolves into Consciousness!

No mind, I am the Self.

Arunachala Siva.

Don't worry, simply don't involve intellect into it. Because it can build up a big big story for you. This is maya. Just listen/read and forget it. Word will sink deep into you without thinking and at the right moment it will pop up automatically. Listening happens to Self automatically without any effort, world appears without any effort, seeing happens without any effort, understanding happens without any effort. This is beautiful effortless being. Watch It.

The wave asks a wordless question: "Who am I?"
The ocean gives a wordless answer: "I am."
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...
