96.   All the age-long vasanas (inherent tendencies) carry the mind outward and turn it to external objects.  All such thoughts have to be given up and the mind turned inward.

97.   Even if we find one who has at once achieved the mauna (Silence) or Supreme state, you may take it that the effort necessary has already been finished in a previous life.

98.   There is only one state, that of consciousness or awareness or existence.  The three states of waking, dream and sleep cannot be real.  They simply come and go.

99.   Existence or consciousness is the only reality.  Consciousness plus waking, we call waking.  Consciousness plus sleep, we call sleep. Consciousness plus dream, we call dream.

100.  See if there is such a thing as the mind.  Then the mind merges in the Self, and there is neither the seer nor the seen.

101. However much one may explain, the fact will not become clear till oneself attains Self-realization and wonders how he was blind to the self-evident and only existence so long.

102. The mind turned inwards is the Self; turned outwards, it becomes the ego and all the world.

103. The jnani (person of Enlightenment) does not think he is the body.  He does not even see the body.  He sees only the Self in the body.

104. Devotee:  I wish to know what is the way to "mukti" (spiritual freedom).
 
Ramana:  But what is "mukti"?  Where is that and where are you?  What is the distance between the two, so that we can speak of a path?

105. It is said the whole Vedanta (a school of thought espousing non-duality) can be compressed into the four words, deham (body), naham (I am not the body), koham (Who am I?), soham (That I am).

106. Be at home, at home in the mind.  Don't allow it to go outwards, but turn it inwards and keep it at home there.  Then all will be well and you will have "atma sakshatkaram" (perceiving the Self directly).

107. Devotee:  I am a grahasta (householder).  Still I want to practice "brahmacharya" (spiritual studenthood) even with my wife.  But I am not able to succeed.  What should I do?
 
Ramana: That is because of age-long "vasanas" (inherent tendencies).  The "sankalpas" (concepts) are so powerful because they have existed so long.  But they will go.

108. That which always is, is the reality.  It is peace.  Peace is another name for it.

109. All that we need do is to keep quiet.  Peace is our real nature.  We spoil it.  What is required is that we cease to spoil it.  We are not going to create peace anew.  If we remove all the rubbish, all the thoughts, from our minds, the peace will become manifest.

110. Mahatma Gandhi must do what he has come for.  We must do what we have come for.
