Dear prasanth,

Yes. Ego less actions of a human being are actions of the Self within.

Arunachala Siva.

Om Namo Bhagavate Sri Ramanaya

Dear Swayam,

I am registered to a ramana maharshi based spiritual organisation based in US and they send me these quotes sir.

I am not sure whether they are maintaining any archive for these daily quotes.

I will enquire and let you know andi.


thanks Prashanth garu.

Q: Is work an obstruction to Self- realization?

M: No. For the realized person the Self alone is the Reality, and actions are only phenomenal, not affecting the Self. There is no sense of being an agent. For beginners it may be initially difficult to practice Self-inquiry while engaged in work, but after some practice it will soon be effective and the work will not be a hindrance to meditation.

Q: My work hinders me.

M: If you have the right attitude, the kind of life you lead does not matter very much.

One of the Ashram workers had put in several years of physical labor. Eventually the Maharshi told him, "Your karma is finished. Go away now and meditate."

Suffering

There has been evil and sorrow since the beginning of creation. You ask why the rishis (sages) do not put matters right. The Vedas tell of the demons (asuras) who have existed since the earliest times. There is a force of opposition in the world which produces strife and suffering but it works to make humankind grow and evolve. It is a force in nature, which exists with the good.

Q: What is the purpose of all the suffering and evil in the world?

M: Your question is itself an outcome of the suffering. Sorrow makes one think of God. If it were not for the suffering, would you have asked the question? Except for jnanis (those who are realized), everybody, from a king to a peasant, has a certain amount of sorrow. Even in cases where it seems to be absent it is only a matter of time -- sooner or later it comes. Also, one may not question sorrow or God at the first blow, but one is likely to at the fifth. We have taken this vehicle (the body) in order to know our real state.

Q: But why should imperfection come from perfection?

M: Had it not been for the manifestation of the universe, we would not have thought about the real state. The purpose of the manifestation is for you to know the cause of it. There is no maya (illusion) when you know your real state. It is your fault if you do not know yourself.

Q: Is the world plan really good then?

M: It is indeed good. The error is on our part. When we correct that error, the whole scheme becomes good.

Q: The world is materialistic. What is the remedy for that?

M: Material or spiritual, it is according to your outlook. Correct your outlook! The Creator knows how to take care of His creation.
