Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi
AHAM’s Core Teaching

Bhagavan Ramana's practice of asking “Who am I?” directs the full attention onto the Self. With awareness poised in Self-Attention or Self-Abidance, the not-self (ego) naturally dissolves through lack of use, much like a plant that is not watered or a flame that is not given fuel.

Self-Inquiry is AHAM’s core Teaching and is truly beneficial for everyone.


Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi


“EVERY living being longs to be happy; untainted by sorrow; and everyone has the greatest of love for himself; which is solely due to the fact that happiness is his real nature. Hence in order to realize that inherent and untainted happiness, which indeed he daily experiences when the mind is subdued in deep sleep, it is essential that he should know himself. For obtaining such knowledge the enquiry; "Who am I?” in the quest for the Self is the best means.

— Sri Bhagavan
