10 important Life Lessons Ramana Maharishi

Every word out of Bhagwan Shri Ramana Maharishi is a life lesson, here are the 10 important Life lessons from Bhagwan.

1. Happiness

“Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.”

2. Silence

“Whatever is destined not to happen will not happen, try as you may. Whatever is destined to happen will happen, do what you may to prevent it. This is certain. The best course, therefore, is to remain silent.”

3. Feelings

“Thoughts come and go. Feelings come and go. Find out what it is that remains.”

4. Correcting Oneself

“Correcting oneself is correcting the whole world. The Sun is simply bright. It does not correct anyone. Because it shines, the whole world is full of light. Transforming yourself is a means of giving light to the whole world.”

5. Trouble

“Why should you trouble yourself about the future? You do not even properly know about the present. Take care of the present, the future will take care of itself.”

6.  Who am I ?

“The question ‘Who am I?’ is not really meant to get an answer, the question ‘Who am I?’ is meant to dissolve the questioner.”

7. Peace

“Silence is truth. Silence is bliss. Silence is peace. And hence Silence is the Self.”

8. Future

“There is neither past nor future. There is only the present. Yesterday was the present to you when you experienced it, and tomorrow will be also the present when you experience it. Therefore, experience takes place only in the present, and beyond experience nothing exists.”

9. Spirit

“Your true nature is that of infinite spirit. The feeling of limitation is the work of the mind.”

10. Awareness

“You are awareness. Awareness is another name for you. Since you are awareness there is no need to attain or cultivate it. All that you have to do is to give up being aware of other things, that is of the not-Self. If one gives up being aware of them then pure awareness alone remains, and that is the Self.”

Who Am I

“Who am I? Not the body, because it is decaying, not the mind, because the brain will decay with the body; not the personality, nor the emotion, for these also will vanish with death” – Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi

Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi was not a sage by words but a god by his virtue. He always believed that the way we live is what gives us the identity, not the body nor the emotions.  He believed and preached that it is not the Body or the Brain that will define us as they will decay. He taught people to live a life that was almost eternal.

He submitted himself to lord Arunachala, he loved every living being on earth, he was simple to the core preaching simplicity and the meaning of life. His life in Tiruvannamalai beholds the key to the treasure of happiness that is eternal.

Being a Ramana Devotee is not just having his Photograph on your desk but learning the life of bhagwan. His everyday life at Tiruvannamalai is a lesson for us. Walking on the path in which he walked everyday will make you learn how he lived. Come live in Tiruvannamalai, walk the path, know him and know who you are…

Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi and the Monkey

Bhagawan Ramanar was not just a saint but a God for all, this may surprise many but the following incident as narrated by Mrs.Taleyarkhan a Parsi devotee will make it evident. 

“Maharshi led an absolutely simple life and from a very young age lived in the hills of the Arunachala. In course of time Arunachala became an internationally famous pilgrim center,attracting devotees from all parts of the world..

Maharshi seemed to have had a very soft corner for all the animals. Among the several animals that have inhabited the holy Arunachala hills, the Monkeys were the most frequent visitors to Maharshi’s ashram (hermitage).. When Bhagwan was in the Virupaksha cave,an adult male Monkey badly mauled a little Monkey..

When it fell down motionless, the attacker left it for dead. After a while, the little Monkey has gained it’s senses and limped slowly to Maharshi’s ashram probably for protection..Bhagwan took pity on the hapless creature; dressed it’s wounds; and nourished it back to health..

Bhagwan then named the little one “Nondi” and asked,”when you become the king of your tribe, will you ever forget me..”..The monkey, who seemed to have understood the words of Bhagwan, shook his head as though he will not forget Bhagwan when he became a king..

Nondi,the monkey then went back to his home and in due course of time became the king of all the other monkeys in the hills.. As promised,Nondi visited Bhagwan one day with his queen and the retinue and enjoyed the hospitality of Maharshi..

Bhagwan too blessed the Monkey and it’s family..All the monkeys prostrated before the holy Lotus feet of Bhagwan and left for the jungle..” Mrs.Taleyarkhan concluded..

Silence is also Conversation – Bhagwan Sri Ramanar

 “Silence is Also Conversation”

This single quote of Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharish teaches us the soul of being on this earth. Silence gives you the answer to many questions that dwell within your conscience. Ramanar sought to settle down on the divine hills of Tiruvannamalai to embark the silence.

Thiruvannamalai a Hill clad with calmness gives room for you to sit in Silence and converse within you, debate your right and wrong doings and attain the state when you understand yourself within. Understanding your inner-self eliminates the worldly desires out of you emancipating the quality of life you were living.

Being contagious for the world is always the result of not understanding your inner-self, once you understand what and who you are, you will have nothing to fight for in this world than to attain peace. Thiruvannamalai gives you the tranquility to immerse in pease. On the holy feet of Lord Arunachaleshwarar you find peace as Bhagwan Sri Ramanar found.

Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharishi chose to live in Thiruvannamalai understanding the silence these hills give you. Therefore finding your piece of Land and settling down at Thiruvannamalai is a way to understand and estimate who and what you are.

Find your Land.
