Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981) is a revered master of the Tantric Nath lineage. His reputation and the popularity of his works have been increasing geometrically since his death in 1981. He is an inspiring example of an ordinary merchant and family man who attained complete realization of the Infinite, who taught that true freedom is a possibility for every one of us. Disciples and seekers from all over the world were drawn to his humble loft in the tenements of Bombay.
Even on the printed page, in this moving volume of dialogues, Nisargadatta's words carry a special potency. They are the words of a compassionate wise man, speaking equally to the heart-oriented and the head-oriented person, to East and West.

"Nisargadatta Maharaj is my greatest teacher. His words guide my writing, speaking and all of my relationships. The singular pursuit of the awakened person is to find that part of himself or herself that cannot be destroyed by death. I know of no one who can aid you more on that journey that Nisargadatta Maharaj. His wisdom guided me throughout the writing of Your Sacred Self." - Dr. Wayne Dyer, author or Your Erroneous zones and Your sacred Self
