Although the huge number of followers of Ramana Maharshi think that
Bhagavan taught self-inquiry alone to the exclusion of everything else, I
personally think that that is not correct.
praNAms Sri praveen bhat prabhuji
I was the one of those who think that ramaNa's teachings mainly &
exclusively focus on our own essential being through the method of self
enquiry like who am I, who is doing that, who is asking this etc. etc. I
may be wrong in my assessment. Kindly give relevant quotes where Sri
ramaNa maharshi taught something else apart from self-inquiry by keeping
the different mind set of different sAdhaka-s. Has he anywhere suggested
anybody that he or she is not fit to do self-inquiry directly, so he/she
should do sAdhana in a different way?? Has he anywhere suggested
shravaNAdi sAdhana to the aspirants as per traditional teaching?? I've
read one Kannada book about Sri RamaNa maharshi written/translated my Sri
Murthy (title goes something like ramaNa maharshigaLa sannidhiyalli dina
dinavu) and 'maha yOga' by who, I dont remember anywhere he gives an
alternative to his 'direct' method self-inquiry!! anyway, again I may be
wrong here as I have very limited exposure to ramaNa's teachings & works.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
