Disciple: How is one to realise the Self?
Maharshi: Whose Self? Find out.
D: Mine, but who am I?
M: Find out yourself.
D: I don't know how.
M: Just think over the question. Who is it that says "I don't know?" Who is the 'I' in your statement? What is not known?
D: Somebody or something in me.
M: Who is that somebody? In whom?
 
 
A wonderful Teaching!
As long as there is someone to know something, or something to be known, ego flourishes.

The true nature of the Self is declared to be Peace. If the same Peace is not found, the non-finding is only a thought which is alien to the Self.  


the non-finding is only a thought....is this not a beautiful revelation!
