Ramana Maharshi - The Self is known to everyone & Jnana
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
The Self Is Known To Everyone
The Self is known to every one but not clearly.
You always exist.
The Be-ing is the Self.
Jnana is given neither from outside nor from another person. It can be realised by each and everyone in his own Heart. The jnana Guru of everyone is only the Supreme Self that is always revealing its own truth in every Heart through the being-conciousness 'I am, I am.' The granting of true knowledge by him is initiation into jnana. The grace of the Guru is only that Self-awareness that is one's own true nature. It is the inner conciousness by which he is unceasingly revealing his existence. This divine upadesa is always going on naturally in everyone."
