ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY–pt210
[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-Inquiry should determine the not–truly "I" (in the Absolute sense – Atman). The "I" (in the false sense – Ego) itself depends on Delusions of Form in order to appear, for it has no Form of its own.
"I" exist always – Here & Now. Who says it: "the 'I' is not felt" ? Does the real "I" say it or the false "I" ? Examine this. You will find it is the wrong "I". The wrong "I" is the obstruction. It has to be removed in order that the true "I" may not be hidden. The feeling that: "I have not realized" is the obstruction to Realization.
By strength of practice, by doing this Self-Inquiry sadhana, the Veil will be removed completely. There will be no further hindrances. You can go to the top of Arunachala, but if you are not alert, if you are not paying attention, you may slip & end up at Isanya Math [a Hindu institution at the base of the Hill].
