Overview

This book is a compilation of unpublished talks with the contemporary Indian sage, Nisargadatta Maharaj. Recorded in the late 1970s and early 1980s, it represents some of the fundamental teachings of this important sage. All of the sayings point the reader back to the truth of one's true nature--one of undying peace and happiness. Many contemporary teachers, such as Lama Surya Das, Wayne Dyer, and Jack Kornfield, draw on the words of Nisargadatta for inspiration and clarification. These wisdom-teachings are combined with photos of Maharaj and some of the locations he lived in in Bombay and the surrounding area. This book is a spiritual journey back to the source of true and abiding peace and happiness. Nisargadatta Maharaj was a simple family man, and owner of a cigarette shop. The beauty of his teachings lie in their remarkable clarity and wisdom, which is borne of the highest realization and spiritual understanding.

Editorial Reviews

Jack Kornfield
Being with Nisargadatta Maharaj gave me the deepest experience that I have ever had with a human being who was truly free.
Jean Dunn
Maurice Frydman described this great teacher as 'warmhearted, tender, shrewdly humorous, absolutely fearless and true, inspiring, guiding, and supporting all who come to him.' Others have described him as a 'tiger.' He was whatever was needed: kind, gentle, patient, abrupt, abrasive, impatient. Moods passed over him like a summer breeze, barely touching him.
Lawrence Shainberg
One of the great minds of this or any other century.
Wes Niskar
A true advaita master.
Yoga Journal
A common man who had a most uncommon insight.

Read an Excerpt

What you are, you already are. By knowing what you are not, you are free of it and remain in you own natural state. It all happens quite spontaneously and effortlessly. —Nisargadatta Maharaj

Meet the Author

Matthew Greenblatt Matthew Greenblatt is the editor of Inner Directions Journal. Nisargadatta Maharaj Nisargadatta Maharaj's life was a wonderful example of a modern-day Indian sage, who lived the simple life of a shopkeeper and family man, yet taught from the highest perspective of non-dual realization. Maharaj's books and teachings are very popular among Western seekers because of their great clarity and direct approach to spiritual awakening. Maharaj always spoke from direct spiritual experience, hammering away at the concepts that keep us from understanding what Truth and Freedom really are.
