****** Quotes from Satsang *****
Nome:That the Self alone is real, the Self alone exists is the significance of Sri Bhagavan’s Silence, the very same as that in ancient days of Dakshinamurti. This Self is never a known or unknown object. Just as it is not possible to stand apart from it to know it, it is not possible to stand apart from it to be ignorant of it. That the Self alone exists and is real is the simple truth, it is the truth of our very Existence. Every notion of difference, every doubt about the Supreme Reality, the Self or Brahman, is based upon the assumption of individuality, an “I”. Appended to that misidentification is the misidentification with the body. If only one abandons the tendency to misidentify with the body and inquires deeply in the nature of the “I” so that the supposed individuality is also abandoned and ceases to be imagined, what remains?
