Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa

“Your very life-breath must become the conscious, timeless affirmation of Reality by Reality SOHAM, SOHAM–I a It, It is I. Only the dualistic imagination perceives some separate practitioner who akes this primordial affirmation SOHAM. To lose completely any notion of separate self, no matter how subtle or instinctive is the true definition of sannyasa, the blessed life of renunciation nonduality is renunciation, As long as one imagines oneself to exist independently as initiator or recipient of various actions–either as actor, agent, subject, or object of any kind–then one has not completely renounced The actual state of nondual knowlege is comparable to falling from a high tree and remaining clearly aware, without tensing a single muscle or feeling the slightest anxiety.”

~ Ramakrishna (from Great Swan by Lex Hixon 108)
