ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi was an Indian sage who gave up his family and studies after a spiritual experience at the age of 16 to live at the holy mountain Arunachala for the rest of his life. His simple way of life and profound yet direct teachings, stressing the unity of the one Self behind all names and forms, made him one of the most respected Hindu saints of the 20th Century in both India and throughout the Western world.

"Nothing to Realise: Eleven Truths from Sri Ramana Maharshi" is an album of English-language songs using words by the Maharshi, set to music by clarinettist Huw Lloyd. The tracks available here feature vocalist Julianne Spicer and two of Tokyo's finest jazz musicians, Takashi Igarashi on guitars and Kentaro Ebiko on bass. Although the relaxed atmosphere of this album makes it ideal for casual listening, it's real value lies in the depth of the words that are at it's heart.

Recorded by Philipp Potz on November 18th and 19th 2009 at Hayama-cho Fukushi Bunka Kaikan, Kamakura, Japan.

1.
Knowledge implies
ignorance of what lies
before what is known.
Knowledge is always
limited.


2.
All beings desire
happiness always,
happiness without
a tinge of sorrow.

At the same time
everybody loves
himself best.

The cause of love
is only happiness,
so that happiness
must lie within oneself.


3.
That which is
does not even
say 'I am'.

For, can
any doubt rise
that 'I am not'?


4.
Realisation
is our nature.
It is nothing new
to be gained.
What is new
cannot be eternal.

Therefore
there is no need
for doubting
if one would
lose or gain
the Self.


5.
One cannot see God
and yet retain
individuality.
The seer and the seen
unite into one Being.

There is no cogniser,
nor cognition,
nor the cognised.

All merge into
One Supreme Siva
only!


6.
There is in fact
nothing but the Atman.
The world is only
a projection
of the mind.
The mind originates
from the Atman.
So Atman alone
is the One Being.


7.
Knowing one's Self
is only
being one's Self,
as there is no
second existence.

This is
Self-realisation.


8.
THAT is which
all these world
are fixed,
of which they are,
from which
they all arise,
for which
they all exist,
because of which
they all
come into being,
and which
they verily are.

THAT alone
is the Real,
the Truth.
That is the
Treasure
in the Heart.


9.
The Self is that
where there is
absolutely no 'I'-thought.
That is called 'Silence'.

The Self itself
is the world;
the Self itself
is 'I';
the Self itself
is God;
all is Siva,
the Self.


10.
Reality must
be always real.
It is not with
forms and names.
That which underlies these
is the Reality.

It underlies limitations,
being itself limitless.
It is not bound.
It underlies unrealities,
itself being real.

Reality is
that which is.
It is as it is.


11.
Lord of my Life!
I have always
been at Thy Feet,
like a frog which clings
to the stem of the lotus;

make me instead
a honey bee
which from the blossom
of the Heart sucks
sweet honey of
Pure Consciousness;

Then shall I have
deliverance.
