This vichAra mArga is termed as "mahA-yOga".
योगस्तु द्विविधो ज्ञेयोह्यभावः प्रथमो मतः ।
अपरस्तु "महायोगः" सर्वयोगोत्त्मोत्तमः ॥
शून्यं सर्वनिराभासं स्वरुपं यत्र चिन्तये ।
अभावयोगः स प्रोक्तो येनात्मानं प्रपश्यति ॥
यत्र पश्यति चात्मानं नित्यानन्दं निरञ्जनम ।
मयैक्यं स मया योगो भाषितं परमः स्वयम ॥
Taking this idea from kurma purana, one of the greatest scholars in Ramana Ashrama
Sri.K.Lakshmana Sarma named his magnum opus as "mahA-yOga". A great scholar,
who didn't bother to claim authorship of the work and hence, put as WHO.
There were several great scholars who served Bhagavan and only few
could get His divine grace. Lakshmana Sarma, Muruganar, Annamalai Swami,
Tinnai Swami, Krishna Bhikshu - just to name handful who attained kaivalya.
