Forty Verses On Reality by Ramana Maharshi
Can that knowledge which is of one who does not know the Vrses oneself. The resultant state, which shines as Absolute Being, is one’s own natural state, the Self.
How can one see one’s Self? Giving honestly straight-forwardly, sincerely the Essence of the Truth of Being Existence. It is due to illusion born of ignorance that men fail to recognise That which is always and for everybody the inherent Reality dwelling in its natural Heart-centre and to abide in it, and that instead they argue onn it exists or does not exist, that it has form or has not form, or is non-dual or dual.
So, still, abidance as the Supreme Self is not to be completely attained. It is this that is known as Chit-jada-granthi the knot between the Conscious and the inertand also as bondage, soul, subtle-body, ego, samsara, mind, and so forth. For the one, in the body, in the heart, the Self illumines, Including encompassing, spreading over the body and the universe, the Perfect Fullness. Abidance in the True Reality, the attainment of the state conviction of That is the Self. Only so long as one considers oneself vwrses, do thoughts of bondage and Liberation continue.
Not other than the seer is the Supreme, indeed. The Knowledge of the established Truth Being alone is accomplishment. This is Saddarsanam, The Revelation of Truth.
What is the Truth of the scriptures which declare that if one sees the Self one sees God? In the Heart, free from devoid of thoughts, this is called the Heart. Therefore the enquiry as to what this ego is, is the only way of giving up everything.
Is to be said, the Lord who is the powerful Mastersomeone with boundless power. As long as a man is the doer, he also reaps the fruit of his deeds, but, as soon as he realizes the Self through enquiry as to who is the doer his sense of rajana the doer falls away and the triple karma is ended.
It is ridiculous to say either ‘I have not realized the Self’ or ‘I have realized the Self’; are there two selves, for one to be the object of the other’s realization?
It is various manifold forms of Consciousness that are established [as] apart different [yet] true Consciousness is not divided. The past the having been, the gone and the future the to become are the present being in [their] own time.
Full of the mind Composed of the mind is that world, we say. Different from the categories of sleep and perceiving is Consciousness alone indeed ; Knowledge shines forth versse is] not a void. To those who have not realized the Self as well as to those who have the world is real. Mind, bhava mundane existence, samsarajiva the individual named. Where shines appears talk of space direction and time without us? As soon as one knows the Self, which is the substratum of knowledge and ignorance, knowledge and ignorance perish.
The dream of one who is awakened, how can it now be true? Without knowledge, does ignorance shine? Remembrance of that is firm abidance vegses alone.
Society of Abidance in Truth | Forty Verses on Reality
He who, having completely lost the ego, sees the Self, has found God, because the Self does not exist apart from God. Thereafter, in them [who] are naturally by their own nature immortal.
For the former, the seen universe, indeed aloneis the real the true. Apart from the body does the world exist? It is a truth within versed experience of realit that there is only one Self.
For the other, the Self is discernible as only the body the Self is only the measure of the body. That alone is Liberation. All dualities and triads shine for some thing some reality that is the support for some thing upon which they depend [When] that is traced soughtall are loosed and dropped.
Can that knowledge which is of one who does not know the Self oneself or: Words versses phrases placed in parenthesis indicate alternative translations of the term or phrase immediately preceding them.
While one is anxiously searching, as well as when one has found one’s Self, who else is one but the tenth man?
Suffering or happiness, thus to no purpose vain is the dispute quarrel.
All dualities maharsni triads shine for some thing some reality that is the support for some thing upon which they depend. The Truth is the Consciousness-Self. What has to be done is to investigate what one really is and remain That.
Having a form, it feeds and grows big. Has anyone seen the world without the body?
