Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi ✅ Talk 398.

 D.: What is to be our sadhana?

M.: Sadhana for the sadhaka is the sahaja of the siddha.
Sahaja is the original state,
so that sadhana amounts to the removal of the obstacles to the realisation of this abiding truth.
D.: Is concentration of mind one of the sadhanas?
M.: Concentration is not thinking one thing. It is, on the other hand,
putting off all other thoughts which obstruct the vision of our true nature.
All our efforts are only directed to lifting the veil of ignorance.
Now it appears difficult to quell the thoughts. In the regenerate state it will be found more difficult to call in thoughts.
For are there things to think of?
There is only the Self.
Thoughts can function only if there are objects.
But there are no objects.
How can thoughts arise at all?
The habit makes us believe that it is difficult to cease thinking.
If the error is found out, one would not be fool enough to exert oneself unnecessarily by way of thinking.
