Ramana Maharshi about Ravi marga And Moon marga
« on: May 26, 2010, 01:40:05 PM »
30th September, 1936

Talk 252.

D.: What is the Sun marga? What is the Moon marga? Which of them is easier?

M.: Ravi marga (Sun marga) is jnana. Moon marga is Yoga. They think that after purifying the 72,000 nadis in the body, sushumna is entered and the mind passes up to the sahasrara and there is nectar trickling.

These are all mental concepts. The man is already overwhelmed by world concepts. Other concepts are now added in the shape of this Yoga. The object of all these is to rid the man of concepts and to make him inhere as the pure Self - i.e., absolute consciousness,bereft of thoughts! Why not go straight to it? Why add new encumbrances to the already existing ones?

Dear prasanth,

I am not very sure., But they also say that the waxing moon
fortnight is Ravi Marga and waning moon fortnight is Soma Marga.
People who die during the first fortnight gets heavens and the other
gets rebirth.  So also for the Uttarayanam and Dakshinayanam,
Makara month onwards six months, and Ashada month onwards
six months.  These are all only theories.

Arunachala Siva.
