REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 181
[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.]
It is the path of true Knowledge. Let there be not inhibition of the effort to know Absolute Reality, to know the Self. By perseverance, the insuperable Ignorance is overcome, & the apparently impossible is accomplished. With honesty & integrity, humbly examining oneself closely, one gains clear, inward discernment. One likewise brings about the destruction of binding tendencies that build up the illusion of solidity of the Ego. With detachment from what is transient & unreal, one finds Peace, true Freedom, & inner contentment.
[Regarding a questioner mourning the loss of his mother:]
One Reality is the Self from whom has sprung the Ego which contains within itself the seeds of predispositions (karmic vasanas) acquired in previous births. The Self illumines the Ego, the predispositions & also the gross Senses. Thereupon, the predispositions appear to the Senses to have materialized as the Universe, & become perceptible to the Ego, the reflection of the Self. The Ego identifies itself with the Body, & so loses sight of the Self. The result of this inadvertence is dark Ignorance & the suffering of the present life.
