Excerpt from the book No Mind, I Am The Self, a book about the life and teachings of one of Ramana's direct students, Sri Lakshmana Swamy, who achieved Self Realization in Ramana's presence in 1949:

Q: How do I make the 'I'-thought go back to its source?
Swamy: By the quest 'Who am I?'
Q: I don't understand.  What is this quest?
S: Ask yourself 'Who am I?'.  Dive within and look for this 'I' that is giving you all this trouble.  If you do this earnestly enough you will experience the bliss of the Self.
    The quest is the earnest search for the source of the 'I'-thought.
Q: I still don't understand.  How is one to go about doing all this?
S: If you don't understand or find it difficult, it will be enough if you hold on to the name and form of an enlightened one.  Or just try to be without thoughts.  If you can manage either of these then the grace of the Self will help you towards the goal.
