Ramana Maharshi: a quick and simple method to self-realisation

Tom Das

In the deep sleep state we lay down our ego [ahankara],
our thoughts and our desires.

If we could only do all this while we are conscious,
we would realise the Self.

  1. Strictly speaking, we don’t lay down the ego, thoughts and desires in deep sleep. It just happens, without any effort on our part. So if they lay down without any effort on our part when we are conscious, we would realize the Self. There is nothing to do.
