Sri Ramana Maharishi

11 Jul

How does speech arise ? There is abstract knowledge, whence arises the ego, which in turn gives rise to thought, and thought to the spoken word. So the word is the great grandson of the original source. If the word can produce effect, judge for yourself, how much more powerful must be the Preaching through Silence !

— Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, ‘Thus Spake Ramana’, p 97
