The following are some quotes from Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi on this most important, indeed absolutely critical instruction, and also his answers to questions regarding meditation.

is the most important requisite, indeed the sole requisite according to SriRamana, for 
“the sole realisation of the Self as God”.
The following are some quotes from
Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi 
on thismost important, indeed absolutely critical instruction, and also his answers toquestions regarding meditation.
On Being Still
... stillness is the aim of the seeker.Even a single effort to still at least a single thought,even for a trice, goes a long way to reach the state of quiescence.(Talk 609)
The mind and intellect do not remain apart from you.The Bible says, “Be still and know that I am God”.Stillness is the sole requisite for the realisation of the Self as God.(Talk 338)

Your duty is
to be:
and not
to be this or that 
.“I AM that I AM” sums up the whole truth.The method is summed up in “BE STILL”.What does “stillness” mean?It means “destroy yourself”. (Talk 363)
To be still is not to think.
  Know
, and not
think 
, is the word.(Talk 130)
 Be still and know that I AM GOD.
“Stillness” here means “Being free from thoughts”.
 
(Talk 480)
The egoless ‘I am’ is not thought. It is realisation.The meaning or significance of ‘I’ is God.The experience of ‘
 I am
’ is to
 Be Still 
.(Talk 226)
