Appearances and their substratum – Las apariencias y su substrato

The eternal is not born nor does it die. We confound appearance with Reality. Appearance carries its end in itself. What is it that appears anew? If you cannot find it, surrender unreservedly to the substratum of appearances; then Reality will be what remains.

Sri Ramana Maharshi


Lo eterno no nace ni muere. Confundimos la apariencia con la Realidad. La apariencia lleva su propio fin en sí misma. ¿Qué es lo que aparece como nuevo? Si no lo encuentras, ríndete sin reservas al substrato de las apariencias; la Realidad es entonces lo que permanece.

–Sri Ramana Maharshi
