Sufferings
« on: February 19, 2010, 09:09:14 AM »
A crippled disabled Brahmin came and complained: “O Bhagavan, right from my birth I have been suffering. Is it due to my past actions?” Sri Bhagavan said: We have to say that it is due to past actions. Then, if one asks what is the cause of those past actions, we have to bring in previous past actions and so on with out end. Instead of enquiring into karma or actions, why not enquire whose karma it is? If we are the body, then let the body ask the questions. When you say, you suffer, it is your thought. Happiness is our natural state. That which comes and goes is the ego. We think we are miserable, because we forget our essential nature, which is Bliss. Even an emperor, in spite of his wealth and power, often suffers because of his disturbed mind. The sage, who does not know where his next meal will come from, is ever happy. See who enjoys Bliss.

Salutations to Sri Ramana
॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.
