I would like to make it very clear that none of these teachings are my own teachings. All of these teachings come from the Vedic scriptures, upanishads and the enlightened beings, primarily Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi.
I would advise all mediators and spiritual seekers who would like to experience enlightenment in the quickest way possible to learn and practice the Self-Inquiry technique of Ramana Maharshi which is best detailed here -http://www.sriramanamaharshi.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/who_am_I.pdf
All modes of mind can be traced to “I”, when one inquires, wherefrom does this very “I” arise, the I merges into the boundless deep of your very Self and aham transmutes into Shivoham. (I am That causeless auspicious divine Consciousness)
The method of Self-inquiry is simple and straightforward and is the fail-proof method dissolve the ego into the Heart.
I advise to have a Self-inquiry mediation session everyday of around 20-40 minutes while continuing to inquire throughout the day.
- Sit down still, relax, take a couple of deep breaths, and simply let go.
- Whenever you find yourself having any thought you MUST inquire “who is having this thought?”
- Do not answer this question with your mind, the answer is the wordless “I – am”
- Then ask “what is the source of ‘I'” or “who am I?” and completely un-clutch.
- Repeat if you have another thought.
- Afterwards simply remain in an unclutched space for 5 minutes where one does not seek to create, destroy or preserve any thought. Be the sky, and do not mind the clouds if there are any.
*(Un-clutching is a term used by Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda. Ausar finds that this word actively and accurately describes the nature of dissolving in and abiding in the state of the Self. For more info on the technique please see Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s technique on un-clutching.)
