170.  We believe in everything except the reality.  We must give up all our false beliefs; and that is the only thing we have to do.  Then the reality will shine by itself.

171.  Question:  Whom should one take for one's Guru?

>          Ramana:  Choose that one where you find you get shanti or peace.

172.  The proper way to get rid of a desire is to find out "Who gets the desire? What is its source?"  When this is found, the desire is rooted out and it will never again emerge or grow.

173.  After all, the proper pradakshina (walking clockwise around a sacred object as a spiritual practice to shed ego) is going round the Self, or more accurately, to realize that we are the Self and that within us all the countless spheres revolve, going round and round.

 174.  True namaskaram (honoring the Divine in another being) is only the giving up the I-sense, or killing the ego.

175.  The jnani (enlightened one) though he knows that meditation on the Self is the best worship, will join in all the other kinds of worship for the good of others and as an example to them.

176.  It is only after seeing the Self within, that one will be able to see the Self in everything.  One must first realize there is nothing but the Self and that he is that Self, and only then he can see everything as the form of the Self.

177.  The eye does not see.  That which gives light to it is the reality, whether we call it Lord's light or anything else.

178.  We should not see anything as apart from God.  That is all.

179.  Once you go to sleep, you can do nothing in that state.  But while you are awake, try to keep away all thoughts.

 180.  When you pass into sleep, that state which you were in before falling asleep will continue and again; when you wake up, you will continue from where you had left off when you fell into slumber.

181.  Ramana quoting Gita (Bhagavad Gita, an allegorical section of an ancient Hindu epic, emphasizing selfless action), "We should not sleep very much or go without it altogether, but sleep only moderately.  The more we control thought, activity and food the more shall we be able to control sleep."

182.  Ramana quoting Gita (Bhagavad Gita, an allegorical section of an ancient Hindu epic, emphasizing selfless action), "Moderation ought to be the rule, as explained in the Gita, for the sadhak (spiritual practitioner) on the path."

183.  Ramana quoting Gita (Bhagavad Gita, an allegorical section of an ancient Hindu epic, emphasizing selfless action), "The final stage of samadhana or samadhi (poised, tranquil state of mind immersed in Self) has to be reached, where one becomes ananda (Bliss) or one with the reality and the duality of enjoyer and enjoyment ceases in the ocean of sat-chit-ananda (pure, undifferentiated Existence-Consciousness-Bliss) or Self.

184.  Sri Krishna has himself said, "I am in the Heart of all beings; I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all forms of life."  He must be within you, as within all.
