Ramana Maharshi - WikipediaLet there be peace and love among all beings of the universe. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti. Venkatasubramanian, Robert Butler and David Godman Edited and annotated by David Godman "That which is worth taking up is the Self-enquiry that reveals the knowledge of the Self; that which is worth enjoying is the grandeur of the Self; that which is worth renouncing is the ego-mind; that in which it is worth taking refuge, to eliminate sorrow completely, is one's own source, the Heart. That which should be attained is true knowledge of the Self; that which the mind should meditate upon is the feet of God; that on which one should firmly depend is satsang; that which should well up in the Heart is peace.

Papaji explains how to get an immediate glimpse of enlightenment.
He was born in what is now Tiruchuli , Tamil Nadu , India. In , an attraction to the sacred hill Arunachala and the 63 Nayanars was aroused in him,  and in , at the age of 16, he had a "death-experience" where he became aware of a "current" or "force" avesam which he recognised as his true "I" or "self", [web 1]  and which he later identified with "the personal God, or Iswara ", [web 1] [note 2] that is, Shiva. This resulted in a state that he later described as "the state of mind of Iswara or the jnani". He soon attracted devotees who regarded him as an avatar and came to him for darshan "the sight of God" , and in later years an ashram grew up around him, where visitors received upadesa "spiritual instruction"  by sitting silently in his company asking questions. Ramana Maharshi approved a number of paths and practices,  but recommended self-enquiry as the principal means to remove ignorance and abide in Self-awareness, [web 2]  together with bhakti devotion or surrender to the Self.
I am That from where you, me, she, he, and all the rest emerge. I am That. Papaji, how does an awakened being like yourself see the world? As my own Self. When you see your hands, feet, body, mind, senses, intellect, you know they are part of you. In the same way you must see the world as yourself, as not different from who you are. Right now you regard your hands, your feet, your nails and your hair as not being any different from you.
