Heart Talk Is All Talk

Somerset Maugham, a well-known English author, was on a visit to Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi.

He also went to see Maj. Chadwick in his room and there he suddenly became unconscious.

Maj. Chadwick requested Sri Bhagavan to see him.

Sri Bhagavan went into the room, took a seat and gazed on Mr. Maugham.

Mr. Maugham regained his senses and saluted Sri Bhagavan.

They remained silent and sat facing each other for nearly an hour.

Mr Maugham attempted to ask questions of Sri Bhagavan but did not (or could not) speak.

Maj.Chadwick encouraged him to ask.

Sri Bhagavan said, “All finished. Heart-talk is all talk. All talk must end in silence only.”

They smiled and Sri Bhagavan left the room.

(From Talk 550 in “Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi).

The Most Powerful Yoga

Image (4) lak_Instructing.jpg for post 104

Meet your own self. Be with your own self, listen to it, obey it, cherish it, keep it in mind ceaselessly.

You need no other guide. As long as your urge for truth affects your daily life, all is well with you.

Live your life without hurting anybody.

Harmlessness is a most powerful form of Yoga and it will take you speedily to your goal.

This is what I call nisarga yoga, the Natural yoga.

It is the art of living in peace and harmony, in friendliness and love.

The fruit of it is happiness, uncaused and endless.
