Bhagavan & M.G. Shanmukam
« on: August 15, 2010, 03:06:27 PM »
M.G. Shanmukam was one of the early devotees of Bhagavan, was so modest that he always refused to be drawn into the limelight! Recollects here

"He once said categorically: 'For practicing Self vichara every day is auspicious and every moment is good - no discipline is prescribed at all. Any time, any where it can be done; even without others noticing that you are doing it. All other sadhanas require external objects and congenial environment, but for Atma vichara one can with ease attend to other activities also. Besides, Self vichara being a purely internal movement, one does not also distract others who are around; whereas, in sadhanas like puja, others do notice you. One-pointed perseverance alone is essential in Self-enquiry and that is done purely inwardly, all the time. Your attention on the Self within alone is essential'".

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