Question to Maharishi Ramana; Is it enough to look inward to the mind or concentrate on the thought,” I am that” Ahem Brhmasmi?
Maharishi Ramana; The main thing is the inwardness of the mind. In Buddhism, the flow of ‘I’ ness is called Nirvana. When we said that this Bhawa comes from the main source ‘self’. Nobody needs to concentrate on’ I am that’ Ahem Brhmasmi.Only we have to destroy the ‘ego’ . This is itself liberation. This can be done by watching the ‘I’ thought’s origin.In our mind ‘I’ thought is the mother thought.After ‘I’ thought other thoughts comes like ‘my’ and ‘me’. If this will not dissolve the Saddhka will not be able to find Shunneta and will go to sleep.
