We have just removed the earth which was filling the space there. The space was there then and is also there now. Similarly, we have simply to throw out all the age-long sanskaras [innate tendencies] which are inside us. When all of them have been given up, the Self will shine alone.” ~ Ramana Maharshi

  55. “Remember the words of Christ: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” These words are literally true, not figures or fiction.

  59. “The Principle of Tolerance, fixed once for all the realization that all knowledge is limited. It is an irony of history that at the very time when this was being worked out, there should rise, under Hitler in Germany and other tyrants elsewhere, a counter-conception: a principle of monstrous certainty. When the future looks back on the 1930’s, it will think of them as a crucial confrontation of culture as I have been expounding it – the ascent of man against the throwback to the despots’ belief that they have absolute certainty.” ~ Jacob Bronowski
  60. “Realisation is not the acquisition of anything new nor is it a new faculty. It is only removal of all camouflage” ~ Ramana Maharshi

  61. “My God, that scene in Monster Inc. where the monsters realize that their entire world is founded on hurting children -look at that for a change!
