  1. @Shakazulu No teaching or text is comprehensive enough to work for every person. Even self-inquiry is not properly done by everyone who practices it. Some people here the truth once and that is enough for them, others need to practice for a long time.
  2. @Serotoninluv Sure, we disagree less than you might think.
  3. @Serotoninluv Value judgments are not a hindrance if there is discernment. I agree with your general statement, but I maintain that conventional knowledge, whether scientific or spiritual - is worthless for self-realization. As Ramana said: Direct knowledge does not require intellectual discourses.
  4. This is a good place to be mentally when it comes to self-realization. People on this forum are for the most part interested in peak experiences. Having a mindset like that is actually a form of vichara - discernment.
  5. Inter-connectedness between two paradigms that are worthless for self-realization is worthless inter-connectedness.
  6. The spirituality they are arguing for is just another science. Worthless as far as self-realization is concerned.
  7. @Shakazulu There is no such thing. It all depends on the maturity of the seeker.
  8. @Preetom Language needs not be deconstructed if it's not indicative of wrong understanding. And yes, if you can reconcile "language can never capture it." with "real grace does not utter a single ignorant sentence." AND you are at peace, then you are good. Grace is why I recommend TSRM over other books and commentaries. The practices you explained for @Jkris is the correct method. Your understanding of self-inquiry is firm.
  9. @Preetom These confusions are absent in dreamless sleep. So what happens in waking that they come about? The Gita says bring sleep into waking and it'll be alright. You see this... ...is still not agreeable. This is still indicative of perceiving separation. It's not just figure of speech, statements such as this will not even appear if understanding is firm. Wisdom is unshakable. It does not admit "I am". Saying I am amounts to saying there is existence. Existence implies duality between existence and non-existence. For "I am" to be truth, there needs to be one that exists. None of this is truth. Mouna - silence - is eternal truth. A dead mind is a blissful mind. A dead mind does not say "I am".
  10. Well one is the Vedanta itself, nobody can really say what it's about with a straight face. Some are treatise about the Self. Scriptures that attempt to teach about enlightenment. A few are Kundalini Yoga books with specific techniques. Neither one is necessary for self-realization, or health.
  11. @Preetom No sorry, can't agree with what you wrote. That is still one step removed from the real thing. The "I am" itself merges back into its source and effortless grace replaces it. Of course that might be the case in your experience, can't tell from text, but if you are still searching, then you still got that one last step to take. If not, then great! Enjoy the bliss.
  12. @bejapuskas Oh sorry. I don't think you'll find much about physical health in those texts. For that you want texts on Asana, and stuff like that. Honestly, new age yoga is the best for that stuff.
  13. @Gadasaa Nope. That's still a thought, you see. Be that. Don't talk about it. Ramana says: Silence is eternal speech.
