This is an exploratory film photography project inspired by Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi's 'Who Am I?'.





Who am I ?




I am not the five cognitive sense organs, viz. the senses of hearing, touch, sight, taste, & smell. I am not.





I am not; the five cognitive sense-organs, viz. the organs of speech, locomotion, grasping, excretion, & procreation. I am not.




I am not; the five vital airs, prana, etc., which perform respectively the five functions of in-breathing, etc., I am not.





I am not; even the mind which thinks.




I am not; the nescience too, which is endowed only with the residual impressions of objects, and in which there are no objects and no functioning's, I am not.




If I am none of these, then who am I?




After negating all of the aforementioned as 'not this', 'not this', that Awareness which alone remains - that I am.




The nature of Awareness is existence-consciousness-bliss




Self-realization will be gained when the world which is what-is-seen has been removed; there will be realization of the Self, which is the seer.
