Guru Ramana Vachana Maalaa:

I. Discrimination:

1. The  Truth about the World - continues.......

16. To him the Sage, that never strays from the Self, who is Consciousness, this world is of the essence of the Self; therefore
he says that the world is real. (See Pancharatnam, verse 5).

17.  But how can the unenlightened one, who is without experience of the Reality and consequently sees the world as 'outside'
of and distinct from himself, understand the true meaning of this saying of the Sage?

19. The world is not other than the body; the body is not other than the mind; the mind is not other than Pure Consciousness.
That exists unborn in Peace.

20. There is neither creation nor destruction. There is no one bound, nor one striving for liberation; nor is there any liberated
person; such is the truth as realized by sages. (Gaudapada Karika).

21. There is no mind, nor body, nor world, nor anyone called a soul. The one Pure Reality alone exists, without a second, unborn,
and unchanging, abiding in Peace.

22. Though the holy Ramana has uttered teachings of diverse tenor to suit the minds of questioners, the teaching that he has given
us as being in accord with his own experience is the Teaching of the Unborn.

23. Therefore only by renouncing the world, as illusory and turning the mind inwards can one dive into the Heart, persevering
in the will to realize the Self, and thus attain Liberation.


Arunachala Siva.
