Shantanu Panigrahi

When you are the Self (Brahman), everything has been renounced and you are blissful.

Harsha JoshiAdvaita

9h ·

Ramana Maharishi says: "The fact is, you are ignorant of your blissful state. Ignorance supervenes and draws a veil over the pure Self which is bliss. Attempts are directed only to remove this veil of ignorance which is merely wrong knowledge. The wrong knowledge is the false identification of the Self with the body and the mind. This false identification must go, and then the Self alone remains."

Q: It seems that so much time is needed to realize the Self; many lifetimes in fact. For me, realization always seems to be an event in the distant future.

AS: You don’t need hundreds of lives to realize the Self. In fact, you don’t need any time at all. Your idea of time is one of the things that is holding you in bondage.

Time is one of the properties of the mind. Liberation does not come after a period of time because there is no time in the Self. Liberation comes when you fully understand and experience there is no one who needs liberation.

That understanding and that experience only arise when the mind and its inbuilt ideas of time cease to function. If you think about time and start to worry about how much longer it will be before you realize the Self, your attention will be on the mind and not on the Self. You can only make progress while the mind is on the Self.

Living by the Words of Bhagavan, p. 288

The mind does not need to be on anything not even Self. When you are the Self (Brahman) you are aware fully, and Self-sufficient.
