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.

It is Simple Being.
There is the end of ignorance.
