One of the main tenets of the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi is non-identification with the body. This is one of the requirements leading to spiritual awakening and discovering who you really are.
I was browsing yesterday through the book ‘Living By The Words of Bhagavan’ by David Godman, and came across something interesting that Sri Ramana Maharshi said about non-identification with the body.
“If you were to take your complaints against mosquitoes to a court of law, the mosquitoes would win the case. Their dharma (the rules that they live by) is to bite and sting. They are teaching you that you are not the body. You object to their to their stings only because you identify with the body.”
