Sri Ramana Maharshi's words:
"All religions postulate the three fundamentals, the world, the soul, and God, but it is only the one Reality that manifests Itself as these three. One can say, “The three are really three” only so long as the ego lasts. Therefore, to inhere in one’s own Being, where the “I,” or ego, is dead, is the perfect State."
Commentary by Richard Clarke. With an audio from Nome, "One Undivided Self."
Ramana Maharshi ends this verse with, "he himself is all of these."
Commentary by Richard Clarke, with an audio from Nome, Existence.
Ramana Maharshi's 40 Verses on Reality gives his teaching in a direct way.
Those who know intense fear of death seek refuge only at the feet of the Lord Who has neither death nor birth. Dead to themselves and their possessions, can the thought of death occur to them again? Deathless are they.
Commentary by Richard Clarke. Audio from Nome, part of a dialog, Error, or ignorance, is death.
