Who am I?


Who am I? 
What am I?
I am not really looking for an answer. 
I am looking for the one asking it. 
When the one in doubt is found, 
The question ceases to exist. 

The answer will be revealed not that the question was satisfied. 

The answer will be revealed only because the question resigned first.
And the question will only stop when the questioner is found.
Who am I?
What am I?
Find the one who asks. Find the questioner.
God will be revealed.

What is I Am Practice by Ramana Maharshi?


The great Hindu Sage Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi taught about the practice of I Am. But many followers were asking, and many seekers even today, ask what is this I Am practice Ramana was talking about. It seems I am is very difficult to grasp. For if it easy, the realization will come so easily.

The main purpose of I Am is to know the thing every seeker is wishing to have: the Reality. At first it is honestly not easy to grasp what Ramana meant with I Am practice. He said remain in I Am and if one is ardent in this, he will understand who or what he is. But seekers are at lost what this I Am is all about. What kind of idea is it? How to implement it? How to begin it?

Reality can be known through I Am. There is one short explanation of this I Am which beginners could start from. I Am is simply a feeling. How is that? Being aware that you are here reading this piece is an I Am feeling. I Am is the the feeling that you exist. You can begin from this inherent sense that you do not don't exist. Whenever you are aware there is a feeling of existence amidst everything happening around. That is the I Am feeling.

You are never not aware. This is I Am feeling. Remaining in it will bring the understanding who you are. You are the unconditional bliss. Nothing more. But you need to know and verify it yourself. It can be done through the practice of I am.

When the Student is ready, the Teacher appears


All of a sudden my teacher appeared from nowhere. 

And he didn't appear by himself. 
He appeared not for any other reason;
Than me becoming an able student first. 

When the inquiry arises from within;
An able teacher will come to visit. 
And this happened not that it has been by doing. 
But primarily this came upon because it just happened. 

When the student is already ripe;
The teacher now ceases to exists;
Along with the student, the two will go.
The student and teacher now merges. 

Nobody does anything. 
All is happening.
