Quotes by Ramana Maharshi
1) Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.
2) Aim high, aim at the highest, and all lower aims are thereby achieved. It is looking below on the stormy sea of differences that makes you sink. Look up, beyond these and see the One Glorious Real, and you are saved.
3) Self realization is cessation of thoughts and of all mental activity. Thoughts are like bubbles upon the surface of the sea.
4) Wanting to reform the world without discovering one's true self is like trying to cover the world with leather to avoid the pain of walking on stones and thorns. It is much simpler to wear shoes.
