Grace is constant. Your judgement is variable. Where does the fault lie? ……Maharishi Ramana.
Comments;; As I understand, bliss is our real nature, but we have to work hard on practice of meditation or Simaran which is the same. These methods are helpful for slow down the speed of mind. When by grace of the Guru or God one can achieve this state, then he finds this bliss or Nirvana in one’s heart which was already there. So faith in Guru or God and constant practice is needed.
And some people have done this course in last lives, they does not need work hard. Maharishi told that as a traveller depends for his destination since he started a journey and how much he has travelled that day. Like this what we have done in last lives and what we are doing now. Otherwise, our real nature which is sat-chit-Ananda (bliss) is already there.
