Sri Ramana Maharishi

3 Aug

That which is born must end. The delusion is only concomitant with the ego. It rises up and sinks. But the Reality never rises nor sinks. It remains eternal. The Master who has realized says so; the disciple hears, thinks over he words and realises the Self. There are two ways of putting it:
The ever present Self needs no efforts to be realized, Realization is already there. Illusion alone is to be removed. Some say the word from the mouth of the Master removes it instantaneously. Others say that meditation, etc., are necessary for realization. Both are right; only the stand-points differ.

— Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, from the classic, ‘Talks’, p 82
