The direct method – El método directo


 
Reality is simply loss of the ego. Destroy the ego by seeking its identity. Because the ego has no existence, it will automatically vanish, and Reality will shine forth by itself in all its glory. This is the direct method. All other methods retain the ego. In those paths so many doubts arise, and the eternal question remains to be tackled. But in this method the final question is the only one and is raised from the very beginning. No practices (sadhanas) are even necessary for this quest.

Sri Ramana Maharshi

 

………………………………………………………….

La Realidad consiste simplemente en perder el ego. Destruye el ego buscando su identidad. Puesto que el ego no tiene existencia, se desvanecerá automáticamente y la Realidad brillará por sí misma en toda su gloria. Este es el método directo. Todos los demás métodos retienen al ego. En esos otros métodos muchas dudas aparecen y la eterna pregunta permanece, y tendrá que ser confrontada. Pero por este método la pregunta final es la única y se plantea desde el principio. Ni siquiera prácticas (sadhanas) son necesarias en este tipo de búsqueda.

–Sri Ramana Maharshi
