Reflektion: Nærvær

Meditation for at opnå nærvær.

“The gross body which is composed of the seven humours (dhatus), I am not;

the five cognitive sense organs, viz. the senses of hearing, touch, sight, taste, and smell, which apprehend their respective objects, viz. sound, touch, colour, taste, and odour, I am not;

the five cognitive sense-organs, viz. the organs of speech, locomotion, grasping, excretion, and procreation, which have as their respective functions speaking, moving, grasping, excreting, and enjoying, I am not;

the five vital airs, prana, etc., which perform respectively the five functions of in-breathing, etc., I am not;

even the mind which thinks, I am not;

the nescience too, which is endowed only with the residual impressions of objects, and in which there are no objects and no functioning’s, I am not.

If I am none of these, then who am I?
After negating all of the above-mentioned as ‘not this’, ‘not this’, that Awareness which alone remains – that I am.”

Sri Ramana Maharshi, 1902 “Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi’s teaching in Nan Yar”

Du er ikke kropen, sanserne, vejrtrækningen, forstanden, og uvidenheden. Til sidst er der kun bevidstheden tilbage – det er du.
