Nisargadatta Maharaj

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

There is no such thing as an expression of reality. You are introducing a duality where there is none. Only reality is, there is nothing else. Just watch events happening, knowing them to be unreal.

Learn to look without imagination, to listen without distortion: that is all. Stop attributing names and shapes to the essentially nameless and formless, realise that every mode of perception is subjective, that what is seen or heard, touched or smelt, felt or thought, expected or imagined, is in the mind and not in reality, and you will experience peace and freedom from fear.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Playing with various approaches may be due to resistance to going within, to the fear of having to abandon the illusion of being something or somebody in particular.

Of all the affections the love of oneself comes first. Light and love are impersonal.
When you do not think yourself to be this or that, all conflict ceases. Any attempt to do something about your problems is bound to fail, for what is caused by desire can be undone only in freedom from desire. You cannot be rid of problems without abandoning illusions.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Refuse to think in terms of this or that. All pain needs investigation. The mind is nothing else but the self. Assumption obscures reality without destroying it. All separation, every kind of estrangement and alienation is false..

Your being a person is due to the illusion of space and time.
The mind creates time and space and takes its own creations for reality.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on advaita and non duality

Wherever it leads you, it will be a dream. The very idea of going beyond the dream is illusory. Why go anywhere? Just realize that you are dreaming a dream you call the world, and stop looking for ways out. The dream is not your problem. Your problem is that you like one part of the dream and not another. When you have seen the dream as a dream, you have done all that needs be done.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on non-duality, self, awareness, and realization

We grow through investigation, and to investigate we need experience. We tend to repeat what we have not understood. If we are sensitive and intelligent, we need not suffer. Pain is a call for attention and the penalty of carelessness. Intelligent and compassionate action is the only remedy.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Be empty of all mental content, of all imagination and effort, and
the very absence of obstacles will cause reality to rush in.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on nisargadatta, i am that, i am, limitless being, who am i, struggle, not body, not feelings, not thoughts, not time, not space, not this or that, nothing, concrete or abstract, and not what you perceive

The seeker is he who is in search of himself. Give up all questions except one: "Who am I?" After all, the only fact you are sure of is that you are. The "I am" is certain. The "I am this" is not. Struggle to find out what you are in reality. To know what you are, you must first investigate and know what you are not. Discover all that you are not - body, feelings thoughts, time, space, this or that - nothing, concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you. The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive. The clearer you understand on the level of mind you can be described in negative terms only, the quicker will you come to the end of your search and realise that you are the limitless being.

Wisdom tells me I am nothing.  Love tells me I am everything.  Between the two, my life flows.

A Quote by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj on real, right, humanity, one, feel, think, live, order, and world

The real does not die, the unreal never lived. Set your mind right and all will be right. When you know that the world is one, that humanity is one, you will act accordingly. But first of all you must attend to the way you feel, think and live. Unless there is order in yourself, there can be no order in the world.
