REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 137
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi. Sections appended below derive from Sri Ramana’s Teaching.]
Self-Realization is remaining as the Self. That is, the Self’s Existence as one’s sole Identity, without an alternative, as the Reality without “other”, without–a–2nd, without Duality. Therefore, no Individual becomes Self-Realized. When the imagined Individuality is abandoned, the Self remains self-revealed, comprehending itself in Self-Knowledge.
For the Realization of the immortal Bliss of eternal Being, one should know oneself as the knower alone, which is unalloyed, boundless Consciousness. In knowing the Self truly, one knows that Consciousness is never non–existent & never alters its Nature. Since it is without an Ego, Consciousness is never an Experiencer, a Thinker, a sensory Perceiver, a Performer of action, or an individualized Knower.
A Self-Realized jnani sees no one as an un–Self-Realized ajnani. All are only jnanis in his sight. In the ignorant state, one super–imposes one’s Ignorance on a jnani & mistakes him for a Doer. In the state of jnana, the jnani sees nothing separate from the Self. The Self is all shining & only pure jnana. So there is no ajnana in his sight.
