Problems in meditation.—-by Maharishi Ramana Do not regret tamas, but when sattva comes into play, hold on it and make the best of it. Comment; This is very important to understand for a saddhka ( seeker of truth). Upnisadas divided these states of mind into three categories . some time our mind feels cool and delight this virtii or mod of mind called sattvic. And when our mind engaged too much in worldly objects, run after money, greed, works too much that state of mind is Raggs and when sleep or laziness that state called tamas. So for meditation, sattvic comes happiness or delight that time is perfect for meditation just as in the morning we are fresh, so use this time for meditation.

Men attached to objects and having endless thoughts due to the strength of latent tendencies find it challenging to control the mind.—- Maharishi Ramana. Comment; for meditation, control of the mind is essential. It is our mind which can not rest anytime. There are endless thoughts every time going on in our mind. We have to empty our mind to experience bliss. Bliss or eternal life is our real nature, but our mind never comes to rest or be still. So if we are attached too many objects, then we cannot experience the self or bliss or silence. And in our past lives vipassana, we find it difficult to control the mind.

Grace

To me there is no distinction .Grace is flowing like an ocean, ever full. everyone draws from it according to capacity . how can one who brings only a tumbler complain that he is notable to take as much as another who brought a jar?.

Comment; Maharishi said that bliss is every time flowing on me like an ocean constant . but as the capacity of a devotee as his or her thrust he can fill his vessel. if one has a cup meaning if his thirst is only one cup he will got it but if one has a Bukett he will fill it. meaning his thrust .

GRACE Grace is always there.you are neck-deep in the water and yet cry for water. Dispassion cannot be acquired, nor realization of truth, nor inheritance in the self, in the absence of Guru’s grace. But the practice is necessary—Maharishi Ramana. Comment; In these words, Maharishi tells us that grace is always like Sun in the sky. Because he is speaking from the stage of Samadhi, so he said his experience that you are neck-deep in the water but crying for water, dispassion and realization of truth inherence in the central self point is Guru’s grace, but practice by instruction Guru is necessary.
