On the auspicious occasion of 140th Birth Anniversary of Shri Ramana Maharshi, we present the video of of the paper presentation titled ‘Bhagavan Shri Ramana and Jivanmukti’ presented by Dr. Sethuraman Rammohan. The paper was presented in the Conference on Oneness, jointly organized by Indic Academy and Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth (CVV) that was held in October 2019 in Kochi.
Jivanmukta as described by Upanishads, Gita, Viveka Chudamani, Jivanmukti Viveka, and other philosophical works, is the one who lives in the world, but is not attached to it. He is liberated in this life though still living in a human body. Such a man breaks through the fetters of attachment and rushes out of the prison-house of the world, as a lion rushes out of its cage. In the paper, Dr. Rammohan talks about how Shri Ramana Maharshi is a Jivanmukta of our times. He also talks about how to achieve the said state by following the way of Ramana Yoga taken by Shri Ramana Maharshi.
