Above: God In Action.
(Left to Right) Sri Madhavaswamy and Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

Let the Purpose Fulfill Itself

D.: How is work to be done ordinarily for an aspirant?
M.: Without self-identification with the actor. For instance, did you intend visiting this place while in Paris?

D.: No!
M.: You see how you are acting without your intention to do so? The Gita says that a man cannot remain without acting. The purpose of one’s birth will be fulfilled whether you will it or not. Let the purpose fulfil itself.
