No aids are needed to
know one’s own Self

There must be one to know your mind.
That is the Truth always present
which is to be realised.

The search for Atman is to know
that which is really Atman.

  A person begins with dissatisfaction. Not content with the world he
seeks satisfaction of desires by prayers to God; his mind is purified;
he longs to know God more than to satisfy his carnal desires. Then
God’s Grace begins to manifest. God takes the form of a Guru and
appears to the devotee; teaches him the Truth; purifies the mind by his
teachings and contact; the mind gains strength, is able to turn inward;
with meditation it is purified yet further, and eventually remains still
without the least ripple. That stillness is the Self. The Guru is both
exterior and interior. From the exterior he gives a push to the mind
to turn inward; from the interior he pulls the mind towards the Self
and helps the mind to achieve quietness. That is Grace.

All efforts are directed to destroying doubt and confusion. To do so
their roots must be cut. Their roots are the samskaras. These are
rendered ineffective by practice as prescribed by the Guru.
The Guru leaves it to the seeker to do this much so that
he might himself find out that there is no ignorance.

Dear Nagaraj,

Yes, Sri Sadhu Om says: Sandehiyai sandehi.   He says that Sri Bhagavan is one who has swallowed all doubts and confusions.

Arunachala Siva.

Some extraordinary persons get drdha jnana (unshaken knowledge)
even on hearing the Truth only once (sakrchhravana matrena).
Because they are krthopasakah (advanced seekers), whereas the
akrthopasakah (raw seekers) take longer to gain drdha jnana
(unshaken knowledge). People ask: “How did ignorance (avidya)
arise at all?” We have to say to them: “Ignorance never arose. It has
no real being. That which is, is only vidya (knowledge).”

Why do you want to know of Brahman
apart from yourself? The scripture says


“You are That”.

The self-evident ‘I’, ignoring the Self,
goes about seeking to know
the non-Self. How absurd!

Only lay the single flower, the heart, at the feet of Siva and
remain at Peace. Not to know this simple thing and to
wander about! How foolish! What misery!

The sage is Brahman - that is all. Mental
functioning is necessary to communicate his
experience. He is said to be contemplating
the unbroken expanse.

You are hazily aware of the Self. Pursue it.
When the effort ceases the Self shines forth.
