Instructions on Self-Enquiry Meditation with Ram Dass

There is a way in which you can know things by linear thought process — by one thought, after another thought, after another thought.

There is also a gestalt phenomenon of an experience of understanding how something is. This is something that is not in a sequential thought process. It is not thought itself.

This is a method put forth by Ramana Marhashi. A beautiful saint in India who became realized at 17 years old and for 50 years he stayed in a wooden shed near Madras. Beautiful, beautiful being.

And he taught this very simple method called “Vichara Atma”  — meaning method of self-enquiry. “Who Am I?”
