Sri Ramana Maharishi

8 Apr

You say that this is the ‘age of reason’ and that the teaching must be in accordance with reason. I ask: Whose is the intellect ? You must answer: ‘My intellect’. So the intellect is your tool. You use it for measuring variety. It is not yourself, nor is it something independent of yourself. You are the abiding reality, while the intellect is just a phenomenon. You must find and get hold of yourself.

— Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, ‘Thus Spake Ramana’, p 25
