The Ultimate Medicine: Dialogues with a Realized Master

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj


The final Medicine isn't when you like their spirituality watered down, yet for critical scholars looking for know-how. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981) lived and taught in a small residence within the slums of Bombay. A learned grasp of the Tantric Nath lineage, he supported himself and his kinfolk via promoting affordable items in a small sales space at the streets outdoors his tenement for a few years. His lifestyles exemplified the idea that of absolute nonduality of being. during this quantity, Maharaj stocks the top fact of nonduality in his personal specified means. His educating kind is abrupt, provocative, and immensely profound, slicing to the middle and losing little attempt on inessentials. His terse yet effective sayings are recognized for his or her skill to set off shifts in attention, simply by listening to or analyzing them."The aspect is that guy free of his fetters is morality personified. one of these guy for that reason doesn't desire any moralistic injunctions with a purpose to reside righteously. loose a guy from his bondage and thereafter every thing else will look after itself. nevertheless, guy in his unredeemed nation can't in all likelihood dwell morally, it doesn't matter what ethical instructing he's given. it truly is an intrinsic impossibility, for his very beginning is immorality. that's, he lives a lie, a simple contradiction: functioning in all his relationships because the separate entity he believes himself to be, while actually no such separation exists. His each motion hence does violence to different 'selves' and different 'creatures,' that are purely manifestations of the unitary awareness. So Society needed to invent a few restraints with a view to guard itself from its personal worst excesses and thereby preserve a few type of established order. The ensuing arbitrary ideas, which fluctuate with position and time and accordingly are merely relative, it calls 'morality,' and via upholding this man-invented 'idea' because the optimum good–oftentimes sanctioned via spiritual 'revelation' and scriptures–society has supplied guy with another excuse to ignore the hunt for liberation or relegate it to a reasonably low precedence in his scheme of things."
