Obeisance to the perfect Guru, Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi,

who has revealed the Truth of the Self in flawless instruction and eloquent Silence, 

and who abides as That - Brahman. 

He is doubtlessly Siva, destroying the illusion of bondage. 

He reveals Self-Knowledge, perfect and true. 

To absorb His teaching, practice it, and realize it is to abide in eternal peace and illimitable bliss.

Guru Parampara

Dakshinamurti being the beginning,

Sankara Acarya being in the middle,

Ramana Sadguru being the end,

To this lineage of Gurus, obeisance!


The Self Alone Exists

  The Self alone exists;

and the Self alone is real.

Verily the Self alone is

the world, the “I” and God.

All that exists is

but the manifestation of the

Supreme Being.

~ Sri Ramana Maharshi


 If one can only realize at heart

what one’s true nature is,

one then will find that it is infinite wisdom,

truth, and bliss, 

without beginning and without end.

~ Sri Ramana Maharshi

 The Self

Self is only Being -

not being this or that.

It is Simple Being.

BE, and

There is the end of ignorance.

~Sri Ramana Maharshi
