Imtroduction: ‘Who am I’ is the title given to a set of questions and answers bearing on self-inquiry. The questions were put to Bhagwan Sri Ramana by Sri M.Sivaprakasam Pilli, about the year 1902. Sri pile was a graduate in philosophy and at that time employed in Revenue department. On his official visit to Arunachalla hill he met the Maharishi Ramana. He impressed by his spiritual guidance and asked some questions to Maharishi Ramana. Maharishi was in silence and answers were given in writing.
question no 5; Will there not be realization of the self even while the world is there (taken as real)?.
Answer by Maharishi Ramana; ‘There will not be’
Comments; I am also doing meditation as my Guru gave me instructions of observations of the mind. It is right by observation, our thoughts becomes slow down and we find a new dimension of bliss .comes there. , our real nature is bliss in Hindi we say sat-chit-Ananda (truth-consciousness-bliss). In meditation our practice is a whole thing. As J. Krishnamurti used to say observation is doing also. Meaning when you look in mind it is also doing. Doing and fruit are same. So Maharish said that if there are too much thought in mind then there will not be realized. According to my experience it is all about his question.
