ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY–pt142
[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi. Sections appended below derive from Sri Ramana's Teaching.]
Self-Realized jnanis are the same in any state or condition, since they know Reality, the Truth. In their daily routines the jnanis act only for others. Not a single action is done for themselves. I have already told you many times that just as there are people whose profession is to mourn for a fee, so also the jnanis do things for the sake of others withou detachment, without themselves being affected.
When a human being determines by Self-Knowledge what in Truth what his Existence is, Absolute Being is known. And if this is without doubt & without wavering, one has thus known what needs to be known, has experienced what needs to be experienced, & has realized what needs to be realized.
The Self is bodiless & is the same in all beings. Being the same in all beings, all Bodies are one's own, while one is actually bodiless. If one is bodiless, all is oneself, & all belongs to oneself, how can Delusion, Desire, Anger, & such arise ?
