Nisargadatta Maharaj

A Quote by Nisargadatta Maharaj on self, consciousness, enlightenment, happiness, peace, love, freedom, nirvana, samadhi, and satori

In the light of consciousness all sorts of things happen and one need not give special importance to any. The sight of a flower is as marvelous as the vision of God. Let them be. Why remember them and then make memory into a problem? Be bland about them; do not divide them into high and low, inner and outer, lasting and transient. Go beyond, go back to the source, go to the self that is the same whatever happens. Your weakness is due to your conviction that you were born into the world. In reality the world is ever recreated in you and by you. See everything as emanating from the light which is the source of your own being.   - Nisargadatta

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on nisargadatta maharaj, enlightenment, void, peace, love, happpiness, bliss, advaita, vedanata, and ramana maharshi

I ask you only to stop imagining that you were born, have parents, are a body, will die and so on. Just try, make a beginning--it is not as hard as you think.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on desire, advaita, others, and mindfulness

Use your mind. Remember. Observe.
You are not different from others.
Most of their experiences are valid for you too.
Think clearly and deeply,
go into the structure of your desires
and their ramifications.
They are a most important part of your mental
and emotional make-up
and powerfully affect your actions.
Remember, you cannot abandon what you do not know.
To go beyond yourself, you must know yourself.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on love, consciousness, unity, and nondual

The consciousness in you and the consciousness in me, apparently two, really one, seek unity and that is love.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on awakening, desire, and seeking

When you demand nothing of the world, nor of God, when you want nothing, seek nothing, expect nothing, then the Supreme State will come to you uninvited and unexpected

All that a guru can tell you is: "My dear Sir, you are quite mistaken about yourself. You are not the person you take yourself to be."

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on self, identity, and emptiness

There is no such thing as a person. There are only restrictions and limitations. The sum total of these defines the person.  The person merely appears to be, like the space within the pot appears to have the shape and volume
and smell of the pot.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on action, duties, suffering, and freedom

By all means attend to your duties. Action, in which you are not emotionally involved and which is beneficial and does not cause suffering will not bind you. You may be engaged in several directions and work with enormous zest, yet remain inwardly free and quiet, with a mirror like mind, which reflects all, without being affected.

To expound and propogate concepts is simple, to drop all concepts is difficult and rare.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on seeking, mind, self, and practice

There is nothing to practice. To know yourself, be yourself. To be yourself, stop imagining yourself to be this or that. Just be. Let your true nature emerge. Don't disturb your mind with seeking.
