How can I get rid of my mind?
Ramana Maharishi: Is it the mind that wants to kill itself? The mind cannot kill itself. So your business is to find the real nature of your mind. Then you will find there is no mind. When the self is discovered, the mind ceases to exist. Abiding in the self, one need not worry about the mind.
What are Thoughts?
Ramana Maharishi: Self Realization is the cessation of thoughts. Thoughts are like bubbles upon the surface of the sea (SELF). Thoughts are pre-dispositions accumulated through innumerable former births in the Chitta. Their annihilation must be the aim. To be free from them is purity. People are deluded by the confusion of the conscious Self (SELF) with the insentient body, this delusion must cease. No effort is needed to realize the ever-present SELF, just remove the delusion
May the Almighty, working through Lord Krishna and Arjuna, Bless, Guide, Protect and Inspire you and remove your troubles.
With Love and Blessings to you. Humbly,
Paramahansa Atmananda ji
