This will elevate you to the status of brihaspati the guru of gods - Nectar of Immortality

 

You should understand this clearly. If one thinks one is the body, one becomes a slave of mind and suffers accordingly. Therefore, you should completely identify yourself with the highest principle in you, which is the knowledge ‘I am’. This will elevate you to the status of ‘brihaspati’ – the guru of gods.

The Blissful Life - As realized through the teachings of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Robert Powell reveals to us a particular version of ancient Eastern philosophy-religion through his selection of aphorisms of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj translated from Marathi. In these aphorisms, he captures and summarizes the wisdom of India epitomized in advaita as philosophy and practiced in everyday life as a blissful religion.

This book attempts to distill the essence of the teachings of Maharaj from the available information and present the result in terms that are readily intelligible and do not require any specialized religious or philosophical knowledge or aptitude.

A considerable part of what has been recorded of Maharaj’s teaching is contained in the monumental work I am That, a collection of conversations with Maharaj, translated from tape recordings in the original Marathi language by Maurice Frydman. The latter was a brilliant Polish electrical engineer and inventor who spent about half a century in India, where he immersed himself in the ancient teaching of advaita. Just as Paul Brunton discovered and introduced to the West that other great Indian sage, Sri Ramana Maharshi, so Frydman was the first to translate and make known to a wide audience Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. The world owes a debt of gratitude to Frydman, for without his initiative and untiring efforts this treasure would not have been available.

What will happen to me when I die ?


Our linear type of thinking includes the grammatical convention that a transitive verb like “know” must have a subject, and a predicate; there cannot be “knowing” without someone who knows and something to be known. Our identification with this convention is so powerful that we cannot grasp the fact that there can be “knowing” or “understanding” as such without the knower and the thing known. This inability to put down the ghost of the individual entity – a creation of Maya – shows the extent to which we let conventions and concepts rule our lives. This is indeed the basis of the obsession “what will happen to me when I die?” The answer which Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj gave to such a query was, “you will be precisely what you were a hundred years ago”. The question is as misconceived as the question - what happens to my lap when I stand up, or to my fist when I open my hand.

Explorations into the Eternal : Forays into the Teaching of Nisargadatta Maharaj


Ramesh S. Balsekar, in this volume, reaches beyond the communication of past knowledge to a creative exploration of the teachings of Nisargadatta Maharaj, inspired by the thirst of other seekers for enlightenment. In his contemplations upon the sentience of the human spirit, Balsekar has used Maharaj's wisdom as the touchstone for his own ventures into the realm of conscious and unconscious. This book forms the third work in Balsekar's trilogy which has been aimed at fulfilling Maharaj's personal enjoinder to "write and talk about my teaching". In the earlier volumes he offered insights into the teachings (Pointers from Nisargadatta Maharaj), and textual applications (a close examination of Saint Jnaneshwar's "Amritanubhava" in Experience of Immortality. These well-received scholarly writings established Balsekar as an authentic interpreter of Maharaj.

Balsekar at the last appears as the true messenger himself - daring to articulate the riddles of life-acceptance and "true seeing" which have emerged from his own internal reflections. With a new vigor in his approach and a reverence for the classics, he has become his Master's most apt spokesman: a philosophical devotee and a peerless stylist. Through Balsekar's intellectual journeys, the reader will come to experience again the gifts and greatness of Nisargadatta Maharaj's immortal work, I AM THAT. Widely acclaimed during his visits to the other countries in recent years, Balsekar's lectures have won for him a responsive audience.

It is on a strictly fundamental level - Exerience of Nothingness

 

The nature of the consciousness has to be understood. This consciousness can arise only in the physical body, and the physical body is the essence of the five elements. It is because of the association with the physical body that there is suffering. Most people who come here will not be able to accept this type of knowledge, because it is on a strictly fundamental level. But some persons who apply themeselves and can accept such a point of view, will really understand. They will be totally free from the impact of pain and unhappiness, if they understand that the latter can only result from the consciousness which has identified itself with the physical body and suffers as an individual. In that case, suffering must inevitably result. But, what is the individual?

Don’t be led astray by all the so-called spiritual disciplines - Experience of Nothingness

 

This is no joke, but you can become ‘Parabrahman’ right now. Only it is not a commodity that you can acquire. You, a hundred years ago, were the ‘Parabrahman’. Give me all the information about that state of a hundred years back. Focus your attention only on that consciousness ‘I am’. Don’t be led astray by all the so-called spiritual disciplines and rigmaroles.

About Nisargadatta Maharaj

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj was an Indian spiritual teacher and philosopher of Advaita (Nondualism), and a Guru, belonging to the Navnath Sampradaya. Sri Nisargadatta, with his direct and minimalistic explanation of non-dualism, is considered the most famous teacher of Advaita since Ramana Maharshi. In 1973, the publication of his most famous and widely-translated book, "I AM THAT", an English translation of his talks in Marathi by Maurice Frydman, brought him worldwide recognition and followers.

According to Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, the purpose of spirituality is simply to know who you are. His discussions are not for academic scholars. He is a rebellious spirit, abrupt in his style of discussion, provocative, and immensely profound, cutting to the core and wasting little effort on inessentials. He talked about the 'direct way' of knowing the Final Reality, in which one becomes aware of one's original nature through mental discrimination, breaking the mind's false identification with the ego, knowing that "You are already That".
