"I-I" ... The Ineffable Manifestation of the Self 

What is sphurana (shining)? 

M.: (Aham, aham) ‘I-I’ is the Self; (Aham idam) “I am this” or “I am that” is the ego. Shining is there always. The ego is transitory; When the ‘I’ is kept up as ‘I’ alone it is the Self; when it flies at a tangent and says “this” it is the ego. (Talks with Ramana Maharshi, 363)
