You know that you know nothing ~ Sri Ramana



“You know that you know nothing. Find out that knowledge. that is liberation (mukti)” ~ Bhagavan speaking in Talk 12 (Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi).

A man had asked the Maharshi to say something to him. When asked what he wanted to know, he said that he knew nothing and wanted to hear something from the Maharshi. Bhagavan gave the response above. (See Talk 12).

Bhagavan used to say that the only direct knowledge we have is that “I Exist”. All other knowledge is via inference. Hence the Self-Inquiry, “Who Am I?” was advised by Bhagavan as the primary spiritual practice.

    Hi Richard,

    I have been reading your ” living in the embrace of Arunachal” information for a while. To think of Arunachal is emancipation. Being a strong devotee of Arunachala, ( my name: Nithiananda Subramaniam) I recently published a book :”As gentle as a breeze life exists. Are you awake?” At present it is available on (USA & England). But I am trying to work with in India to make this book available there. Are you living in Aruanchala or Mexico? I am planning to visit Thiruvanamali end of this year or the beginning of the next. If you are there, I would like to meet with you. By the way, Do you know David Godman? If you are in contact with him, please pass this book info to him. I live in California. Please stay in touch.

    Best wishes, Nihtiananda
