Quotes of Ramana Maharashi

"The explorers in finding curiosities, discovering new lands and undergoing risks in adventures. They are thrilling. But where is pleasure found? Only within. Pleasure is not to be sought in the external world."
"Nobody doubts that he exists, though he may doubt the existence of God. If he finds out the truth about himself and discovers his own source, this is all that is required."

"Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside."
"I exist’ is the only permanent self-evident experience of everyone."

"Nothing else is so self-evident as ‘I am’. What people call self-evident, that is, the experience they get through the senses, is far from self-evident. The Self alone is that. So to do self-enquiry and be that ‘I am’ is the only thing to do. ‘I am’ is reality. I am this or that is unreal. ‘I am’ is truth, another name for Self."
"No one succeeds without effort those who succeed owe their success to perseverance."
"Correcting oneself is correcting the whole world.The Sun is simply bright. It does not correct anyone. Because it shines, the whole world is full of light. Transforming yourself is a means of giving light to the whole world."
