Marathi Discourses by Nisargadatta Maharaj - Audio

Thanks to my friend who shared these with me. She is basically from Maharaj's village and her family is very close to Maharaj.

She says : "These are all about verses from "Eknathi Bhagvat". Maharaj told Mr. Chavhan to record all these discourses. Maharaj usually never asks anybody in particular to record any of his sessions. Mr. Chavhan's son preserved them and published a book called "Atma-Darshan" and distributed it among few disciples. My Father was one of them."

A part from discourse by Nisargadatta Maharaj about performing bhajans on the occasion of  Tukaram beej (Saint Tukarams day of departure to Vaikunth).

Approximate translation : There shouldn't be any negligence while offering Bhajans to guru, as it's the everlasting fountain of worship. It's gifted to us by the Saints like Tukaraam. Every word and letter of the bhajan should be pronounced clearly as it gets typed on the chakras in our body. Every chakra stands for certain letter. When you sing the bhajans, the pronounced words hit these chakras and help to clear the blockages of thoughts. So be prompt about the Bhajans.

Approximate translation : The consistent  remembrance of your guru transforms you into that particular divine remembrance. Your inner guru is disclosed.

Approximate translation : 'I am' is more evident in humans than in animals. 'Bhag' means light and light is his sample i.e. Vaan. 'Vaan' means sample. What is my sample? Light. Which light? A peaceful light glowing timelessly deep inside the heart. This involuntary sense of 'I am' is at the bottom of all the actions. We have it inherent. I love.

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".
