The Home of Liberation
« on: September 07, 2009, 01:48:53 PM »
Once in 1938, Sri Annamalai Swami asked Bhagavan Ramana:  "Only with Guru-krupa (Grace of Guru), one can attain the home of liberation, is it not Swami?"

Bhagavan Ramana replied:  "The home of liberation is not outside.
It is within one.  Once a person desires to attain this home within,
then the Guru within will pull him back with his hands.  The Guru
outside will push him inside.  This alone is Guru Krupa, the Grace
of Guru and nothing else."

Bhagavan Ramana then quoted the Verse 79 (in Tamil book)
or Verse 86 (in English book) of Kaivalya Navaneetham:

"Lord, you are the Reality remaining as my inmost Self, ruling
me during all my countless incarnations!  Glory to you who have
put on an external form in order to instruct me!  I do not see how
I can repay your grace for having liberated me.  Glory!  Glory
to your Holy Feet!"
