[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; & another selection based on Ramana’s disciple Annamalai.Swami]

The supposed other self of “I”, is called “Ego”, “Mind”, “Individual”, “Soul”, etc.  Ramana Maharshi refers to it as the “I”thought, “I”notion, “I”mode, or “Aham Vritti“.  If “I” is apparently modified into, or defined as, something it is not, the resultant view is the “I”notion or Ego.  Though the Self is Formless Existence & Infinite Consciousness, in Ignorance there arises the conception, the idea of “I”, of Individuality.  This is the “I”thought or Aham Vritti.  This is not the production of another “I”.  It is only an assumption that proves to be false upon Self-Inquiry.  Finding it, unreality is the true significance of  “Egodeath”.

[Sri Ramana]

The “I” is always there in Deep Dreamless Sleep, in Dream & in Wakefulness. The one in Deep Dreamless Sleep is the same as that who now speaks.  There is always the feeling of “I”.  Otherwise, do you deny your Existence ?  You do not. You say “I am”.  Find out who is.


Don’t be afraid of the Mind. It’s a false tiger, not a real one. Something that is not real cannot harm you. Fear & anxiety may come to you if you believe that there is a real tiger in your vicinity. Someone may be making tiger noises as a joke to make you afraid, but when he reveals himself, all your fears go because you suddenly understand that there never was a tiger outside your imagination.
