Sri Ramana Maharishi

24 Jul

Knowledge does not exist without ignorance; ignorance does not exist without knowledge. That knowledge is alone true knowledge, wherein one knows the Self through enquiry to whom knowledge and ignorance pertain. Is it not, rather, ignorance to know all else without knowing oneself, the knower ? On knowing oneself, the substratum of knowledge and ignorance, knowledge and ignorance perish.

— Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, ‘Thus Spake Ramana’, p 110
