Devotee; is it enough to practice of inwardness or a saddaka should be thinking,” aham brahsmi” ( I am that)?
Maharishi Ramana; the Main thing is the practice of inwardness. buddha bihksu consider it Nirwana’ absence of ‘ego’ but we said that when the mind emerges in the self which is source it is liberation. there is no need to say,’ Aham Brhamasmi’. because for saying this there should be,’ I’ which is ‘ego’. only kill the ‘ego’ it is enough! and we Hindu says when the mind emerges in the self( Atman). this is liberation. we can do it by searching the source of ‘ I’ thought. if ‘I’ would not be dissolved then there will not be ,’ sunayata’ then saddaka will go to sleep.
actually, our self remains forever. the body takes birth and it dies but our ‘ self’ is limitless. our problem is that we think to body-mind as ‘I’ . in the language of Vedanta it is due to illusion.
