Our essential nature – Nuestra naturaleza esencial

Pleasure or pain are only aspects of the mind. Our essential nature is happiness. We forget the Self and imagine the body or the mind to be the Self. It is this wrong identity that gives rise to misery.

Sri Ramana Maharshi


Placer y dolor son sólo aspectos de la mente. Nuestra naturaleza esencial es la felcidad. Nos olvidamos del Sí e imaginamos que el cuerpo y la mente son el Sí. Esta falsa identificación es la que genera el sufrimiento.

–Sri Ramana  Maharshi
