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.”

New Year, New Beginnings

 

“Happiness is your nature, It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is, seeking it outside when it is inside” – Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi

There comes a Monday after every Sunday and there comes a Night after every Morning and that is nature and it could never be changed, then what is new with a New Year…? New Year marks a new beginning of a story of yourself and a tale of success and failure and a moment to rejuvenate yourselves. As Bhagwan Ramanar says when Happiness is always inside why go in search of it outside.

Every New Year brings us a whole lot of worldly dreams that we desire to fulfill all the 365 days and through the course of time we win in some and loose in some, but we forget to dream about our inner-self.  Bhagwan Ramanar always wanted us to aim for a greater joy that is available all over nature, like the holy land of Tiruvannamalai where he chose to seek his peace and later he settled down.

This new year let us all take a pledge to set aside seeking just our worldly dreams and start seeking more inner-peace that will take us to the heaven in a holy way. The ways and means are a bit simple try to find a piece of land in a peaceful atmosphere just like Bhagwan chose Thiruvannamalai settle down start seeking the blessings of the lord himself. Thiruvannamalai is one such place where you are not beside God but just living beneath him. We wish you all a Happy, Glorious and Peaceful New Year.

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..

‘Happiness is your Nature, it is not wrong to Desire it’ – Bhagwan Sri Ramanar

 

Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharishi is one of very few Legends who never travelled but has followers from all over the world. The first question that arises in our mind after hearing this is ‘How is it possible?’. It is very simple Bhagwan Ramanar wanted everyone to be Happy and lead a happy life, he never imposed any rule for his followers.

He simply told people to find their inner self which he considered God. He told the world to search God within and he said only in Happiness we can find God. When the whole world was turning topsy turvy in search of God, bhagwan simply said God is with in you, be happy do good, stay calm you will find or you will realise the God within you.

 

When many advised to throw everything of one’s worldly pleasures Ramanar was the only person who told it is not necessary for one to disown his happiness to find God or divinity. This simple yet great philosophy brought thousands to the divine land of Tiruvannamalai. 

 

Tiruvannamalai is a land of serenity and peace where you will find the God within you just like Ramanar.

Thiruvannamalai hill is as such the Adhi Linga the Fire of Lord Shiva himself. Thiruvannamalai is much greater than just a town.
