Self-Realization is a translation of the Sanskrit expression Atman Jnana – knowledge of the Self or Atman. Jnana refers to knowledge based on experience, not mere intellectual knowledge.
Self-Realization is the basis of all Self improvement methods.
As a student of Self realization, you will be supported to experience new ideas, methods or activities. You will learn how to closely observe and monitor your involvement in these experiences, and build your relationship with your True Self. And how these experiences can become reality within your life; and in relation to your experiences of others.
Ramana has developed 7 tools to support you in experiencing your own true Self; the first tool is to start asking key Questions? Don’t just accept the way you, your life, or society are. Turn your attention inwards, and embark on a search for answers to who you are, why you do the things you do, why the world is the way it is, observe your awareness of your Self, your interactions with others and their actions towards you.
If you wish to make a start on your own personal search for your True Self, and you would like some support and guidance you can study the Self-realization Guidebook with Ramana. The guidebook is based on the Upanishads, and this sacred text provides you with a valuable experience of your Self or Atman when reading the words contained in the guidebook.
