Grace is always there,but practice is also needed. staying in the self by one’s efforts is like a roguish bull to remain confined to his stall by tempting him with luscious grass and preventing him from straying.—-Maharishi Ramana.
Comments;I experienced it with my practice by grace if you find experience of bliss , then it is easy to do practice because then you have an extraordinarily experience which is of eternal bliss which you can’t find in richness,luxurious, sex, anything of worldly experience. then you have to practice more and more because it becomes more and more. this example of Maharishi Ramana is very true. sometimes I realize during practice the words of Jesus ,” who have more they will be given more,who have a little that will be taken back “ this is very true about practice. In Vadas a Rishi named Vissta said,” your practice is your deva (God).
