Essential nature / Mind – La naturaleza esencial / La mente

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.

When the mind unceasingly investigates its own nature, it transpires that there is no such thing as mind. This is the direct path for all.

Sri Ramana Maharshi


Placer y dolor son solamente aspectos de la mente. Nuestra naturaleza esencial es la felicidad. Nos olvidamos del Ser (Sí o Yo) e imaginamos que el cuerpo o la mente son el Ser. Es esta falsa identificación la que genera el sufrimiento.


Cuando la mente investiga sin descanso sobre su propia naturaleza, lo que transpira es que no hay tal cosa como mente. Este es el camino directo para todos.

–Sri Ramana Maharshi
