Time is in the mind. Space is in the mind.

 

Time is in the mind. Space is in the mind. The law of cause and effect is also a way of thinking. In reality, all is here and now and all is one. Multiplicity and diversity are in the mind only. - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Consciousness - the fundamental - Max Planck

 

I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.

Max Planck - German Physicist, Originator of modern quantum theories

How can an 'appearance' make any 'progress' towards any objective?

 

The problem apparently is about 'progress'. Now, who is to make the progress, and progress towards what? I have said this repeatedly and untiringly that you are the Conscious Presence, the animating consciousness which gives sentience to phenomenal objects; that you are not a phenomenal object, which is merely an appearance in the consciousness of those who perceive it. How can an 'appearance' make any 'progress' towards any objective? Now, instead of letting this basic apperception impregnate your very being, what you do is to accept it merely as an ideological thesis and ask the question. How can a conceptual appearance know whether it is making any conceptual progress towards its conceptual liberation? - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Discard all traditional standards

 

Discard all traditional standards. Leave them to the hypocrites. Only what liberates you from desire and fear and wrong ideas is good. As long as you worry about sin and virtue you will have no peace. - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

There are no distinctive marks of Jnana - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

  

There are no distinctive marks of Jnana. Only ignorance can be recognized, not Jnana.A Jnani does not claim to be something special. All those who proclaim their own greatness and uniqueness are not Jnanis.They are mistaking some unusual development for realization.The Jnani shows no tendency to proclaim himself to be a Jnani.He considers himself to be perfectly normal, true to his real nature.Proclaiming oneself to be an omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent deity is a clear sign of ignorance. - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

The road is the goal - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

 

Once you realize that the road is the goal and that you are always on the road, not to reach a goal, but to enjoy its beauty and its wisdom, life ceases to be a task and becomes natural and simple, in itself an ecstasy. - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

You are the substance of consciousness - Ashtavakra Gita


तात चिन्मात्ररूपोऽसि न ते भिन्नमिदं जगत् ।
अतः कस्य कथं कुत्र हेयोपादेयकल्पना ॥

You are the substance of consciousness. The world is You. Who is it that thinks he can accept or reject it? And where does he stand? - Ashtavakra Gita

Does this world exist exactly as you perceive?

 

Every atom in this world, be it of gold or iron, carbon or oxygen – is made up of the same particles. The difference is only in their numbers. The fundamental building blocks of all materials in this world are the same. The difference is only when it is interpreted in your mind. Does this world exist exactly as you perceive? Where do you figure in this? And who are you?

The coin - the name and form - is irretrievably lost - never to be re-born

 

I have a gold coin. I melt it and make a ring. Though the gold has not changed, will it now have any of the features of the coin? If the coin was antique, will the ring also be antique? The coin - the name and form is the identity superimposed on the gold. Will it be known as the rebirth of the coin? The coin is no more. The coin - the name and form - is irretrievably lost. Isn’t it the same in case of your own identity too?

"What is born, the objective body, will, in due course, die; thereafter it will be dissolved, i.e., irrevocably annihilated. The life-force will leave the body and mingle with the air outside. The objective part of what was once a sentient being will be destroyed, never to be re-born as the same body. And consciousness is not an object, not a "thing" at all. Therefore, consciousness, as something non-objective, cannot be born, cannot die and certainly cannot be re-born." - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

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".
