Yesterday, April 24th 2017, was the 67th Aradhana of Sri Ramana Maharshi.
His teachings continue to live on even after he has passed onto a different plane. Below is an excerpt that I read as a small window, revealing everything and very little all at once. A glimpse that offers just a smidgen of Truth to desire more while having read enough to know.
Every living being longs to be happy, untainted by sorrow; and everyone has the greatest love for herself, which is solely due to the fact that happiness is her real nature. Hence, in order to realise that inherent and untainted happiness, which indeed she daily experiences when the mind is subdued in deep sleep, it is essential that she should know herself. For obtaining such knowledge the enquiry, ‘Who am I?’ in quest of the Self is the best means.
Who am I? I am pure Awareness. This Awareness is by its very nature Being-Consciousness-Bliss (Sat-Chit-Ananda).
Sri Ramana Maharshi
