the way how to get moksha
« on: April 11, 2011, 01:47:17 PM »
Many visitors came on one occasion and they all saluted Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi with a single prayer, "Make me a bhakta. Give me moksha.” After they left Sri Bhagavan said, thinking aloud: All of them want bhakti and moksha. If I say to them, ‘GIVE YOURSELF TO ME’ they will NOT. HOW then can they get what they want?

Dear Ramanaduli,

Moksha of the Self realization is already within us.  What is preventing us from realizing that is our ego, [also called mind]
and vasanas.  If these are removed once for all, either through self
inquiry or self surrender, then what remains is only moksha.

Sri Sankara says in Vivekachudamani: Vasana kshayam moksham.

Sri Bhagavan answers to the last question of M. Sivaprakasam Pillai in Who am I?  What is liberation:?  Sri Bhagavan answers: If one enquires who is in bondage, and realize the real Swarupam  within is liberation.
