Dear Hari

dont mistake me , I have been following your posts for some time.
setting aside all this, my basic question is:  you are still searching for a right philosophy or have decided to follow Ramana Maharishi whole heartedly? 

Or ,  you first accepted advaita and Maharishi and now seeing serious flaws in Advaita ?In that case, I kindly  suggest you re-start your search and look for some school that can satisfy you.

May be you are drawn more towards Hare Krishna movement Vaishnavism ?

I am not misguiding you but seeing the degree of unrest you have, it will just be supressed when we reply some points. neverthless it will come back and haunt you .

my point is, always first Trust the Master not a school of thought.  And then listen to what the Master has to say.   

If you are not satisfied with a Master, do not read his teachings. Move on to another.

Sri ksksat27,
yes, to be at peace when you are around the Guru or read/hear His teachings is of paramount importance.

Restlessness is in the mind and it doesnt matter in what direction it is manifested, the problem remains the same. Even if we follow one Guru and one path then other thoughts will emerge interrupting our Inner Silence. There is no one single formula by which to calm down the mind and to dissolve it in Sat-Chit-Ananda.

the only problem is that you believe there is a problem.
belief in the story of the self leads to following stories .
stories of masters . stories of paths , stories of what you will get if you follow this or that.
but this "you" that you think you are is only a story in the mind also .
stop ... be still ...  see the truth of who you really are ... awareness itself.
awareness needs to follow no story , no path , no master , yet includes them all .
mother mary comes to me , speaking words of wisdom , let it be .....
 :)
simply stop telling the story of the self and see who you are without it

Living by the concept that there is no "I", "me" and "you" and that there is no path, no master and so on is another story just as equal as any other. The Consciousness does not need explanations.
