Discovering what you truly are
Posted on 12.08.10 4:16PM under Nisargadatta Maharaj
“What contradicts itself has no being. Or it has only momentary being, which comes to the same. For what has a beginning and an end has no middle. It is hollow. It has only name and shape given to it by the mind, but it has neither substance nor essence.” – Nisargadatta.
“Once you realize that the world is your own projection, you are free of it. You need not free yourself of a world that does not exist, except in your own imagination! However is the picture, beautiful or ugly, you are painting it and you are not bound by it. Realize that there is nobody to force it on you, that it is due to the habit of taking the imaginary to be real. See the imaginary as imaginary and be free of fear.” – Nisargadatta
The ONLY time there ever is is the Immediate Presence which we commonly call NOW.
These programs on Nisargadatta are very potent for those who are interested in this material. It may take a few listenings to get the full potency of the pointing. I myself have been struck by certain passages, by the simple and yet ‘deep’ significance of what Nisargadatta is saying. – Gilbert
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj – First a recording from 1980 with Ramesh Balsekar translating and then a recording from the 11th of January 1981 in which the voice of S.K. Mullarpattan appears as translator. This is a short selection from a series of tape recordings which I have digitally cleaned up and edited for archival purposes. There may be more to come. Some of the many tapes were used for transcribing purposes by Jean Dunn and Dr. Robert Powell who both produced excellent books on Nisargadatta. The first book ‘I am That’ was transcribe by Maurice Freeman in the early seventies. Dates for all the passages transcribed from the tapes are mentioned in the various books.
