Sri Ramana Maharshi

Nearly all mankind is more or less unhappy because nearly all do not know the true Self. Real happiness abides in Self knowledge alone. All else is fleeting. To know one’s Self is to be blissful always.
— Sri Ramana Maharshi

The Guru is the being-consciousness that shines, abiding as all in all.
— Ramana Maharshi

Following the destruction of the “I am the body” idea, whatever body it may be, the radiance of being endures free of limitation, without any bondage, shining as the pure expanse. Dwelling in the Hearts of all individuated beings as attribute-free knowledge, as wholly the Self, and as non-distinct from them, this radiance of being abides as the all-encompassing Supreme Power.
— Ramana Maharshi

Bliss is not something to be got. On the other hand you are always Bliss. This desire - for Bliss - is born of the sense of incompleteness. To whom is this sense of incompleteness? Enquire. In deep sleep you were blissful. Now you are not so. What has interposed between that Bliss and this non-bliss? It is the ego. Seek its source and find you are Bliss.
— Sri Ramana Maharshi

God is immanent in every person and every object throughout the universe. The totality of all things and beings constitutes God
— Ramana Maharishi

Can religion, which teaches you to look outside yourself, which promises a heaven and a reward outside yourself, can this help you? It is only by diving deep into the spiritual Heart that one can find the Self.
~ Ramana Maharishi

There is no greater mystery than this, that we keep seeking
reality though in fact we are reality. We think that there
is something hiding reality and that this must be destroyed
before reality is gained. How ridiculous! A day will dawn
when you will laugh at all your past efforts. That which will
be the day you laugh is also here and now.
— Ramana Maharshi

I cannot show you God or enable you to see God because God is not an object that can be seen. God is the subject. He is the seer. Don’t concern yourself with objects that can be seen. Find out who the seer is
