111. The bliss which is enjoyed unconsciously in sleep is enjoyed consciously in turiya (the state beyond all states).

112. We have not understood the present.  Why should we seek to know the future?

113. Only if there is creation, we have to explain how it came about.  All that, we may not know.   But that we exist now is certain.  Why not know the "I" and the present and then see if there is a creation?

 114. There is nothing to be reached.  You are always as you really are.  But you don't realize it. That is all.

115.   Question:  I am now following the path of japa (repetition of a sacred word or the name of God).  Is that all right?
Ramana:  Yes.  It is quite good.  You can continue in that.

116.   First, you do this dhyana (meditation) with breaks.  Later, you do it without any break.  At that stage you realize you do dhyana without any effort on your part, that dhyana is your real nature.  Till then, effort is necessary.

118.   All that we see is a dream, whether we see it in the dream state or in the waking state.  On account of some arbitrary standards about the duration of experience and so on, we call one experience dream experience and another waking experience.

119. We consider it intelligence to plan and live wretchedly.  See how many animals and birds live in this world without planning and stocking.  Are they all dying?

120. Complete surrender does require that you have no desire of your own, that God's desire alone is your desire.

121. Dr. Syed: What are the steps by which I could achieve surrender?
>  
> Ramana: That are two ways; one is looking into the source of "I" and merging into that source. The other is feeling "I am helpless by myself, God alone is all-powerful and except throwing myself completely on him, there is no other means of safety for me," and thus gradually developing the conviction that God alone exists and the ego does not count.  Both methods lead to the same goal.

122.  Actions will go on, according to the gunas (qualities) or prakriti (nature) of the man.  They cannot be prevented.  But, that is the very reason why man should acquire jnana (Enlightenment) and thus become unaffected by the consequences of such action.

123.  Who is it that undergoes sleep, dream and waking states?  Who is it that has the ignorance, and ignorance of what?  When you inquire into the source of 'I', all doubts will be set at rest.

124.  Sleeping or stilling the mind is real prayer.  By "sleep" should be understood "the sleepless sleep".

125.  A jnani (Realized one) can't escape the Self or go away from it.  Where else to go, as all that he knows is the Self, which he himself is?
