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

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".
