Ramana Maharshi

Sri Ramana Maharshi‘’If the beginningless, impure vasanas that remain as the cause for waking and dream leave and perish, the state of sleep (previously perceived as) void-like and dull, and which led us into a state of ignorance and suffering, will become the transcendent state of turiya.’’

Guru Vachaka Kovai  verse 460

Only in an intellect that has developed a desire for the waking state will the eminent state of deep sleep, which is all bliss, be classified as a state of ignorance: ‘I did not know anything during sleep.’ By failing to enquire into and realize the true experience that exists and shines in the same way forever, one becomes deluded and thinks, ’I am the one who woke up.’ If that powerful sheath of the intellect, the ignorance that is experienced in the waking state, is destroyed by the sword of vichara (that leads to the knowledge), I am not the one who woke up’, then the eminent state of sleep will shine, remaining as pure bliss, its ignorance destroyed.’

Guru Vachaka Kovai verse 461

—–

“The death of the ego in the unlimited Silence ( the non-dual Truth) and the shining forth of the Self is the attainment of Oneness (Kaivalya-Siddhi ). In that State of Jnana, pure Bliss will gloriously blaze forth as one’s own True Nature.”

“The Ego must, die, must vanish along with the inherent vasanas.” “It is not by a single realization, ‘I am not the body but the atman’ that the goal is reached. Do we become high in position by once seeing a king? One must constantly enter into samadhi and realize one‘s Self and completely blot out the old vasanas and the ego, before he becomes the Self.”

“Therefore meditate!”
