Sri Ramana Maharishi

25 Jul

That is alone is Knowledge which is neither knowledge or nescience. What is known is not true Knowledge. Since the Self shines with nothing else to know or to make known, It alone is knowledge. No void it is. The Self, which is knowledge, is alone the Reality. Knowledge of diversity is but false knowledge. This false knowledge, which is but ignorance, does not exist apart from the Self, which is Knowledge-Reality. Ornaments in their variety are unreal. Do they exist without gold, the substance ?

— Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, ‘Thus Spake Ramana’, p 111
