What is Enlightenment?

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi

The key word with Ramana is the Sanskrit term ‘sankalpa’ (will or intention)- the resolve to follow a particular course of action or decision to take action is a sankalpa – and that’s what separates an enlightened person from an unenlightened person – unenlightened people are always full of sankalpas, full of decisions about what they are going to do next, how they are going to plan their lives, what’s going to happen next, how they change their circumstances to benefit the most in the short or long-term future .
He said : The true jnani has no desire whatsoever to accomplish anything in this world.
