Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981) is a revered master of the Tantric Nath lineage. His reputation and the popularity of his works has been increasing at an astonishing rate 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 home in the tenements of Bombay. |
Even on the printed page, in this moving volume of talks edited by Robert Powell, 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
Widely recognized for his clear and insightful writings on Advaita, the author presents his teachings on this topic in the form of wide-ranging discourses with a group of students. These teachings embrace those of Sri Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Sri Atmananda, and others. Readers will be moved to begin genuine self-inquiry, and those who have already begun on such a course will find in this book an invitation to an even deeper self-examination.
