The more you get fixed in the self the more the thoughts will drop off themselves……. Regulation of life, such as getting up at fixed hours, bathing, doing mantra, Japa, observing the ritual, all this is for people who do not feel drawn to self-inquiry or not capable of it. —-Maharishi Ramana.
Comments; As I also find it true in myself that when you are doing more practice, more time it becomes more calm and peaceful. But in very few practice bliss also becomes lesser and lesser. Here maharishi told us that if you have experience of bliss, you should not worry about other methods of practice, but while practicing if you are unable to do self-inquiry then you should do other methods.
