REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 146
[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.]
All the perceptions of the 3 States [Waking, Dream, & Deep Dreamless Sleep] belong to Illusion & not to the Self. The 3 States have no existence independent of the Self, yet they do not have any existence dependent upon the Self. That which is the knower of the 3 States, called “the 4th” is really the 1–without–a–2nd. The Ego, the Mind, & embodiment are Illusions. Accepted as real, they are productive of suffering. The changeless Self is not modified into or by them.
Self-Knowledge is obvious & yet can be hidden by the wrong identification of the Self with the Ego–Mind & Body in a World. Putting an end to these thoughts allows the Self to shine forth of itself. Find the basis if the thoughts. All if them are strung on the single “I”–thought. Subdue that “I”–thought & other thoughts also subside.
There is no use in “knowing” other things besides the Self. If the Self is known, all else becomes known. Self-Realization is one’s primary & sole duty.
