This which always is

Q: What is that reality?

A: That which always is, is the reality. Peace is another name for it. All that we need to do is to keep quiet. Peace is our real nature. We spoil it. What is required is that we cease to spoil it. We are not going to create peace anew. There is space in a hall, for instance. We fill up the place with various articles. If we want space all we need to do is to remove all those articles, and we get space. Similarly if we remove the rubbish, all the thoughts from our minds, the peace will become manifest. That which is obstructing the peace has to be removed. Peace is the only reality.

People all realise, or regard as real what is unreal, and all they have to do is give that up. When you do that you will remain as you always are and the Real will be Real.

--- Ramana Maharshi


  1. This one had me looking up Ramana Maharshi . Some very heavy teachings here..

  2. I'm glad to have made you aware of Ramana. I hope you explore a bit, and go beyond a few quotes. As he was not an educated man, his words are not always as sophisticated as those of some who are "talking" these days. But he seems to be one who truly "walked the walk."
