When renowned philosopher U. G. Krishnamurti came to visit Ramana Maharshi he knew that uncountable people had experienced a tremendous peace in his presence.
But he felt nothing. So after a while, he asked: “Swami, are there any steps to reach the stage of liberation?”
And Ramana answered: “There are not such steps nor stages. If it’s there, it is absolute and unchangeable. On the other hand, if it’s not there, everything is missing.”
U. G. Krishnamurti seemed unsatisfied: “Sir, I’m asking can you give me what you have?”
