I was gonna post this in literature but i feel it belongs here.

Ramana Maharshis lineage has snowballed since his life, most of the spiritual teachers reknowned these days are teachers in the vein of Advaita Vedanta & Self Enquiry which is a kind of esoteric sect of Hinduism. It is without doubt the fastest way to awaken to the true nature.

His teaching relentlessly points directly back to the source, we've all heard enlightenment is very easy, well this is the easiest teaching (paradoxically its also the hardest at first many find)

Self enquiry is the final path of all paths as all practices are done under the assumption there is someone who pracices to get somewhere, so even if someone tamed the ego to perfection & claimed enlightenment there is still this one who claims to be something. This one needs to be eradicated if you seek truth (as does the one who seeks!)

I thought id share one of his books, the collected works which pretty much has everything of his teaching.

Even if you dont understand his words the power that the words are embibed with ring true within you and they pull all your ideas you have about everything back into the silent source of the heart.
