Discovering Nonduality

If the body is understood to have a mind which gives rise to consciousness, the world is ‘out there’ — separate from what we call ‘I’ — and a longing arises that can never be fulfilled.

If consciousness itself is understood to give rise to a body-mind through which it knows itself, the sense of separation collapses, and longing dissolves in its source.

I looked for God. I went to a temple and did not find him there. I went to a church and did not find him there. I went to a mosque and did not find him there. Finally I looked in my heart, and there he was. ~ Rumi

If you seek the grace of God with your whole heart, then you may be assured
that the grace of God is also seeking you. ~ Ramana Maharshi

Be still, and know that I am God. ~ Psalm 46:10


'Jnana' is a Sanskrit word that means knowledge, or knowing. Not the kind that comes from intellectual study, although this can facilitate one's becoming a 'jnani,' or sage. Rather, the kind that can only be known through deep insight arising out of meditation, or unity with the divine. Perhaps the foremost Jnani of the 20th Century was Ramana Maharshi, the subject of this documentary.
