Sri Ramana Maharishi (1879 - 1950) expounded the Vedanta philosophy not through bookish knowledge but through practical experience. He said, "The world is so unhappy because it is ignorant of the true Self. Man's real nature is happiness. Happiness is inborn in the true Self. Man's search for happiness is an unconscious search for his true Self..."

He gave to the world the grand but simple message of his great life, "Know Thyself". "Enquire, 'Who am I?' Make the mind calm. Free yourself from all thoughts other than the simple thought of the Self or Atma. Dive deep into the chambers of your heart. Find out the real, infinite 'I'. Rest there peacefully for ever and become identical with the Supreme Self."

Ramana Maharishi's birth anniversary is celebrated all over India on December 30, every year. Read Full Article...

Having read this I thought it was really enlightening.
I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this article together.
I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and posting comments.
But so what, it was still worth it!
