Where is the person? - Ashtavakra Gita

 ● Abide in awareness with no illusion of person. You will be instantly free and at peace. ● Meditate on this: “I am Awareness alone. Unity itself.” Give up the idea that you are separate, a person, that there is within and without.  ● You have long been bound, thinking, “I am a person.” Let the knowledge, “I am Awareness alone,” be the sword that frees you.  ● I am not the body. I do not have a body. I am Awareness, not a person.  ● Realize Self in All and All in Self. Be free of personal identity and the sense of “mine.” Be happy.  ● In you who are One - immaculate, still Awareness - from where can birth, action, or a separate person arise?  ● Your ignorance alone creates the universe. In reality One alone exists. There is no person or god other than You.  ● He who claims liberation as his own, as an attainment of a person, is neither enlightened nor a seeker. He suffers his own misery.  ● Where is the doer or enjoyer? Where is the origin or end of thought? Where is direct or reflected knowledge? There is no person here.  ● Where is illusion? Where is existence? Where is attachment or non-attachment? Where is person? Where is God? I am Awareness.   Ashtavakra Gita

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".
