Bhagvan Ramana Maharshi Quotes on Renunciation

Bhagvan Ramana Maharshi Quotes on Renunciation

  1. Renunciation does not imply apparent divesting of costumes, family ties, home, etc., but renunciation of desires, affection and attachment. There is no need to resign your job, only resign yourself to God, the bearer of the burden of all.
  2. A man should surrender the personal selfishness which binds him to this world. Giving up the false self is the true renunciation.
  3. Renunciation is always in the mind, not in going to forests or solitary places or giving up one's duties. The main thing is to see that the mind does not turn outward but inward.


  1. Renunciation of the one who renounces, is true renunciation.

  2. Turning the mind inward is the problem
    To control the mind is to make it more violent
    To keep quiet and unaffected about anything is the key to success
