The Master Sri Ramana Maharshi states that
the control of the mind , achieved by any way except
the VICHARA (SELF-INQUIRY) will be only temporary,
THE DIRECT PATH
By Mouni Sadhu
The great Rishi, Bhagawan Sri Ramana Maharshi - unlike most yogis and many saints of the present day- does not recommend yogic practices as a condition for the highest and perennial spiritual achievement, called by him 'Self-realisation'. He dismisses from that aim, all the cumbersome postures, breathing exercises, control of the pranic-currents (currents of the Prana in the human body and so of Nature itself), and so on. In fact, he seldom even mentioned them in his talks.
