Source: Gems from Bhagavan – A Necklace of Sayings by Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi
There are two ways of achieving surrender. One is looking into the source of the ‘I’ and merging into that source.
The other is feeling, ‘I am helpless myself, God alone is all powerful, and except by throwing myself completely on Him, there is no other means of safety for me’; and thus gradually developing the conviction that God alone exists and the ego does not count.
Both methods lead to the same goal. Complete surrender is another name for jnana or liberation.
