Dear Sri Subramanian Sir, Bhagwan Sri Ramama's Grace is ever full, ever present and ever available. Only ' i', ' you ' , etc. should not come in between.
However, it is because of His Grace alone that devotees and seekers turn to Him, adore Him, surrender to Him, learn ' Atmavichara ' as taught by Him and it is His Grace alone because of which they make efforts ceaselessly on the path of Jnana.
Besides, Guru is the Self within as the Inner Guru. It is His Grace that He manifests as the external Guru with a name and form and pushes the mind of His devotees within and as the Inner Guru pulls to the Centre, the Self. Sri Annamalai Swami says that this pushing and pulling is the Guru's Grace. ( p-59, Final Talks )
Dear Sir, ji, yes, the very nature of the Self or God is Grace. Therefore, it follows that so long as ' i ', ' you ' etc. are obstacles, His Grace cannot be fully be realised. For full realisation of His Grace the mind or the ego will either have to seek its Source and will have to be fully submerged in the Self or surrender to Him.
Grace is the primary essential and efficient cause for realisation. THEREFORE, I SAY THAT GRACE IS OUR GOAL. Regards. Anil
