Seek the self by meditation in this manner .trace every thought to its origin.never allow thought to run on. if you do it would be unending. take it back to its starting place and the mind would die of inaction. Go back to the question,’ Who am I ‘? —-Maharishi Ramana.
In this teaching Maharishi told us the way of self-inquiry.this is as he told look the very place of origion , wherefrom thought starts. now when you Start that very source thought automattcally will emerge in the source which is self. Mind would die of inaction. if thoughts start then ask the question ‘ To whome thoughts are arising?and answer will be ‘to me’ and by this practice mind will emerge in the self and result will be self-realization.
