Grace as Mother

"It is impossible for anyone to get established in the experience of reality, being-consciousness, except through the power of grace, the Mother [chit-para-sakti]. Other than through grace, the Mother, no one can attain reality, the experience of Sivam, which is truth. Except through that exalted light, which is the grace of consciousness, the supreme power, it is impossible to transcend the conceptualizing power of the mind. The ego can only be destroyed by the power of grace, not by the dark, perverted knowledge [suttarivu]."

~ Padamalai, Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi Recorded by Muruganar
