Steadiness is what is required.......and wait for its Grace

Nama article - 18th July 2007

Talk 103.


Bhagawan Ramana Maharishi :


Even if instructed by others to do japa or dhyana, they do it for some time, but are always looking to some results, e.g., visions, dreams, or thaumaturgic powers.


If they do not find them they say they are not progressing or the tapas is not effective.


Visions, etc., are no signs of progress. Mere performance of tapas is its progress also. Steadiness is what is required. Moreover they must entrust themselves to their mantra or their God and wait for its Grace. They don't do so.


Japa even once uttered has its own good effect, whether the individual is aware or not.
