Spirituality in wonderland


Spirituality in wonderland:
Just to understand that 'Alice' is a fictional character in 'wonderland' is not enough. There's more to it.
Even if she understood it thoroughly, she must have a 'Guru' in 'wonderland'.
The Guru should give her a wonderland-mantra to repeat.
Does she have the authority to know all these?
Has she been initiated into the lineage of knowing 'Alice'?
For years, she needs to study thoroughly about the features of 'wonderland' and behaviour of 'Alice'.
She should rigorously twist her body to do 'wonderland-yoga'.
Do you know how many sisters 'Alice' had? If not what use is your spirituality?
You have to worship God-of-wonderland first.
Wait, what is 'Alice' eating? Is it vegetarian?
This book describes about the previous births of 'Alice'. Learn that first.
'Alice' went through bad experiences due to her bad 'karma'.
Even if 'Alice' fails to get liberated now, it will be done in her next birth in 'wonderland'.

•    It is enough to know what you are not.
•    It is enough to know both 'Alice' and 'wonderland' are fictional.
•    There cannot be liberation for 'Alice' from 'wonderland', whatever she may do.
•    Same is the case with 'you' too.

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".
