What should I do to be on the spiritual path
« on: February 19, 2010, 09:15:56 AM »
Once I asked Bhagavan what I should do to be on the spiritual path. He said, “Do what you want to do but keep doing it; don’t remain doing nothing. Repeat the name, or think deeply or seek the source of your ‘I’ consciousness, do Atma Vichara but keep working on yourself. This is very important”.

- Gouriammal

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

Dear Nagaraj and srkudai,

Chanting God's name repeatedly makes you realize that you have surrendered to God. Only God is there and not you.  Bhagavan Ramana says that
this is the state of Atma Nishtaparan.  Surrender and enquiry are the two
sides of the same coin.

Arunachala Siva.
