Ramana Maharshi

Realization is nothing to be gained anew. You are the Self.

There is never a moment when the Self is not; it is ever-present, here and now.

If Realization were something to be gained hereafter, there would be an equal chance of its being lost; this cannot be Liberation, which is eternal.

Realization consists of getting rid of the false idea that one is not Realized.
