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

If the world is false, then the plan and its creator are also false.

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.

The complete steps to self realization


Indeed there is no such thing as "enlightenment". The apperception of this fact is itself enlightenment!

All paths lead to unreality. Paths are creations within the scope of knowledge. Therefore, paths and movements cannot transport you into Reality, because their function is to enmesh you within the dimension of knowledge, while the Reality prevails prior to it.

- Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

There are three kinds of people in a “spiritual” train journey

 There are three kinds of people in a “spiritual” train journey. 1. The "normal" person, who is just bothered about his family, food, and sleep. He is not worried about other issues in the train, yet he reaches the destination just as anyone else do. 2. The "so-called-spiritual" person, who is eager to know about the mechanisms, rules, systems, and categories of locomotives, the expertise of the pilot, the meaning of signals, etc. He then strives to get a thorough understanding of that. There may be “masters” who would explain that to him, and perhaps would get satisfied in becoming proficient enough. Still, he too reaches the destination, just as anyone else do. 3. Now, the “rarest” one, who understands in depth that the destination is bound to reach, irrespective of any action, and that any inquiry is futile. He enjoys his journey, calmly observing the landscape through the window, yet fully aware that the journey had never commenced.

One who has transcended the body idea does not need the ananda - Nisargadatta Maharaj


Because you want some satisfaction according to your own concepts, you try to qualify unalloyed bliss. The term "ananda" (bliss) has significance only when it signifies that the bodily beingness is available to experience it. One who has transcended the body idea does not need the ananda. - Nisargadatta Maharaj

Existence, non-existence, change - Ashtavakra Gita


भावाभावविकारश्च स्वभावादिति निश्चयी।
निर्विकारो गतक्लेशः सुखेनैवोपशाम्यति॥

Existence, non-existence, change - this is the nature of things. Realizing this - stillness, serenity and bliss naturally follow - Ashtavakra Gita

Neither presence, nor absence - Nisargadatta Maharaj


In my true state of unicity, there is neither presence, nor absence. Absence of the presence of presence and absence of the presence of absence is what I am. – Nisargadatta Maharaj

Cannot be perceived by the eyes - Mundaka Upanishad


न चक्षुषा गृह्यते नापि वाचा नान्यैर्देवैस्तपसा कर्मण वा ।
ज्ञानप्रसादेन विशुद्धसत्त्वस्ततस्तु तं पश्यते निष्कलं ध्यायमानः ॥

Cannot be perceived by the eyes, speech or other senses, nor by austerity or sacrifice. Through the grace of knowledge one gets purified, then through contemplation alone the Absolute is realised. - Mundaka Upanishad

Forget the known, but remember that you are the knower


Forget the known, but remember that you are the knower. You are beyond the experience, ever unborn and deathless. - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Like a hole in the paper - Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj


Like a hole in the paper is both in the paper and yet not of paper, so is the Supreme State in the very centre of consciousness, and yet beyond consciousness. - 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".
