The more you get fixed in the self the more thoughts will drop off themselves……. Regulation of life, such as getting up at a fixed hour, bathing, doing mantra, Japa, observing the ritual, all this is for a people who do not feel drawn to self-inquiry or are not capable of it. But for those who can practice this method all rules and disciplines are unnecessary. —-Maharishi Ramana.
Comments; On self-inquiry you come to understand your real identity who you are? In other words you understand your real nature which is bliss. So then you have reached your destination, and other things are preparations for the journey, this is what Maharishi Ramana is explaining. But our language cannot describe it so saints show the way and when you will reach there you will be silent. It happens in the silence of mind.
