Ribhu Gita (Tamil) Ch 32:
(38) Being again & again of the conviction or attitude (bhava) as declared here, always & continuously, that the divisionless Supreme Brahman is all, and I am that indivisible Supreme Brahman, cast off Delusion, & attain that undivided Supreme Knowledge, which has nothing apart from it, and enjoying that undivided, Supreme Bliss And being rid of all the debilitating sorrow of this World, become yourself of the nature of the stainless Supreme Brahman.
(40) All is one completely, perfectly full Brahman. I am one completely, perfectly full Brahman. Those who have this conviction or attitude (bhava) with Discernment will themselves be the Supreme Brahman, of the nature of Consciousness. As expounded by the partless Supreme Lord, I have explained the undivided Truth to you, those who understand this as explained will attain Happiness.
[selections based on Master Nome’s Self-Knowledge]
Ascertaining the unitary motivation in Life (happiness), one becomes free of the idea of multiple motives taking one in multiple directions. Accomplishing this, one concentrates the searching of one’s Mind in the direction that is truly within. This prompts a yearning for Self-Knowledge & provides the motivation for Inquiry into Existence-Consciousness because Existence-Consciousness-Happiness is the True Nature of one Reality, the one Self. The results on meditation on & absorption of, the Discerning Knowledge regarding the nature of Happiness are the steadfast motivation to inquire so as to realize the Self. Also for Perception of the one motivation behind all kinds of searching through all kinds of experience, detachment from worldly things & cessation of worldly desire, & steady access to the inner source of Happiness.
[based on the Maharshi’s Teaching]
Unless we know our Self as we really are, we can never experience true & perfect Happiness, untainted by even the least unhappiness or dissatisfaction, & unless we keenly attend to our essential consciousness of our own mere being – our simple Non-Dual Self-Consciousness, “I am” – we can never know our self as we really are. For the majority of spiritual aspirants, the process of attaining Self- knowledge, like the process of learning any other art or science, is said to be a threefold process of repeated shravana, manana, & nididhyasana, or learning, assimilation, & practice. The Sanskrit word shravana literally means “hearing”, but in this context it means learning the truth by hearing, reading or studying. The word manana means thinking, pondering, musing, reflection or meditation, that is, dwelling frequently upon the truth that we have learnt through shravana in order to imbibe it & understand it more & more clearly, & to impress it upon our Mind more & more firmly. And the word nididhyasana means keen observation, scrutiny, attentiveness or profound contemplation, that is, in our context, putting what we have learnt & understood by sravana & manana into practice by keenly scrutinizing, attending to or contemplating upon our essential Self-conscious being, “I am”. In the life of a serious spiritual aspirant, this threefold process of shravana, manana, & nididhyasana should continue repeatedly until the experience of true Self-knowledge is attained. In our day-to-day lives our Mind encounters innumerable different impressions through our five Senses, & thinks innumerable thoughts about those impressions, so the impression made by one thing is quickly replaced by the impression made by other things.
