Sri Ramana Maharishi

9 Aug

The world is not external. The impressions cannot have an outer origin. Because the world can be cognized only by consciousness. The world does not say that it exists. It is your impression. Even so this impression is not consistent and not unbroken. In deep sleep the world is not cognized; and so it exists not for a sleeping man. Therefore the world is the sequence of the ego. Find out the ego. The finding of its source is the final goal.

— Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, from the classic, ‘Talks’, p 56
