Jnana Guru

Sri Ramana Maharshi (1879-1950)
"Jnana is [knowledge] given neither from outside nor from another person. It can be realized by each and everyone in his own Heart. The jnana Guru of everyone is only the Supreme Self that is always revealing its own truth in every Heart through the being-consciousness 'I am, I am.' The granting of true knowledge by him is initiation into jnana. The grace of the Guru is only that Self-awareness that is one's own true nature. It is the inner consciousness by which he is unceasingly revealing his existence. This divine upadesa [guidance] is always going on naturally in everyone."

~Sri Ramana Maharshi
