Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

10 Aug

….By all means be selfish by foregoing everything but the Self. When you love the Self and nothing else, you go beyond the selfish and the unselfish. All distinctions lose their meaning. Love of one and love of all merge together in love, pure and simple, addressed to none and denied to none. Stay in that love , go deeper and deeper into it, investigate yourself and love that investigation and you will solve not only your own problems but also the problems of humanity. You will know what to do. Do not ask superficial questions, apply yourself to fundamentals, to the very roots of your being.

— Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That’, p 216


Sri Ramana Maharishi

7 Aug

Engage in Self-investigation, then the non-self will disappear. The Self will be left over. This is self-investigation of the Self. The one word Self is equivalent to the mind, body, man, individual, the Supreme and all else.

— Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, from the classic, ‘Talks’, p 192
