Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj: "My Master (Siddharameshwar Maharaj) told me:                                       You are the Supreme Reality.                                                     I believed him. In less than 3 years I Realized this Truth."                  

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj 



"Tat Tvam Asi"

  "satguru parabrahman"

There is no other

    Listen with the heart:

"Just a single quality gives birth to the  glow of the  expanded  universe;  in the absence of that one quality, all is pure silence.  When this one single quality is known and befriended, the heart mingles  with  the  Heart;  there is that  supreme  sense of  inalienable  mutuality of  oneness of quality in all,  and all as belonging to the  One.  The supreme unity is realized; hence it is called the Supreme Self."              (Self Knowledge and Self Realization - Nisargadatta Maharaj)

"Glory to the Sad-Guru, the Supreme Self"


Maharaj: "Contemplate life as infinite, undivided, ever present, ever active, until you realize yourself as one with it. It is not even very difficult, for you will be returning only to your own natural condition.

    Once you realize that all comes from within, that the world in which you live has been projected not onto you, but by you, your fear comes to an end. Without this realization you identify yourself with externals, like body, mind, society, nation, humanity, even God or the Absolute, but these are all escapes from fear."

Sri Siddharameshwar Maharaj                 The guru of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj:
siddharameshwar pathri

Siddharameshwar Maharaj  (d.1936)

His teachings: The Bird's Way - Vihangam Marg

" ...just as a bird flies from one tree to another. .... only by hearing and practising from the teachings of the Master and thinking it over  can  one attain  the Final Reality  very fast. One has to go into "Laya", ie  absorbing self.

Ignorance has come through thoughts and if the thoughts are absorbed in reality, one can go to the Ultimate Reality by thinking only.

He made ceaseless efforts to achieve this Final Reality, saying: 

"I will attain the Final Reality even at the cost of my life"

By the grace of his Master, Sri Bhausaheb Maharaj, he attained the goal of Final Reality

First, he gave the Knowledge of Final Reality to his disciples, and then asked them to renounce it, and then told told then to renounce, even the act of renunciation. Finally, he gave the knowledge of Vignana - the Thoughtless Reality  "

  NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ  recalls how  SIDDHARAMESHWAR MAHARAJ told him to abide in  the thought that he was PARABRAHMAN , the ABSOLUTE REALITY and to never waver from this, for one moment.

"I believed him, and did as I was told". With     earnest    and   constant abidance ........

Within 3 years  Final Reality was attained!

"The aspirant should take his Pure Self as his preceptor (guide) and pursue with sincerity and sincere love." (Shree Nisargadatta -  Self Knowledge and Self Realisation 1963)

BHAUSAHEB MAHARAJ  (d.1914) was the guru of Sri Siddharameshwar Maharaj

Sri Bhausaheb was initiated in 1858 by Nimbargi Maharaj (see below). He awakened and taught meditation, (THE ANT'S WAY - a SLOW WAY - PIPILIKA MARG) with the aim of attaining FINAL REALITY......Self-Realization.

Sri Bhausaheb Maharaj was an Advaita (non-dual) Master with many disciples."He advised his disciples to perform worldly duties with perfect diligence. But he warned them that they should consider spiritual discipline to be the be-all-and-end-all of life and that it should claim their highest loyalty. Hence, while they are engaged in the daily work they should not fail to meditate on the Divine Name. “ [ie the Naam Mantra] 

There is a need to be patient, steadfast and earnest. 

The teachings are clear: Supreme Reality can only be realized within the heart and not the head.

Inchegiri Navnath
Navnath lineage


NavNath Sampradaya lineage of 9 gurus provides the basis and origins for  Nisargadatta's teachings. These teachings have truly blossomed and sown seeds in the minds and hearts of countless aspirants across the planet.

Maharaj:" The Nine Masters’ tradition (Navnath Parampara) is like a river—it flows into the ocean of reality and whoever enters it is carried along.

Those who practice the sadhana of focusing their minds on “I am” may feel related to others who have followed the same sadhana and succeeded. They may decide to verbalize their sense of kinship by calling themselves Navnaths."

Nisargadatta Maharaj's  message on the Navnath lineage is that it is what you do that matters, and  not so much the Navnath tradition per se, that matters

Practise is essential.

Gurulingajangam  Maharaj        

also known as


Nimbargi originated from NIMBARGA SAMPRADAYA a spiritual channel/lineage which includes the above gurus and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

"If you annihilate forgetfulness, and are steady in remembrance, life in qualityless Absolute, you would suffer from nothing in this world and will attain absolution in your own self. You should therefore, meditate without wasting a single moment, incessantly. The real meaning of life subsists in your own self Atman. All that is done without Atman and without seeing and remembering Him is meaningless, valueless and fruitless." *

"Awakening is remembering Atman and forgetfulness is not-remembering Atman. Remembrance of Atman easily renders all work holy and  excellent. Always remember Atman, see and think of Him unceasingly, everything will be secured, and one will attain Peace - Swa-sthata, ‘Swa’ means one's own form i.e. Swarupa and 'Stha' means ‘steadiness’’ i.e. Sthirata.

If you become steady in Self, you will be steady everywhere." *

Beyond Freedom - Maria Jory (2009)

 * "When you discover that self which has no colour, image, or design, you will no longer require freedom. You will be beyond freedom.
    The moment the "I Amness" explodes or appears, all of space is lit up. The entire sky is the expression of your Beingness. Even though this whole world is an expression of your Beingness, you believe that you are only the body. Your love for the body limits your horizons. But the moment those walls come down, you are one with Brahman and the whole universe."
   *Beyond Freedom - Maria Jory from undiscovered recordings of Nisargadatta Maharaj teaching in the last 2 yrs of his life.
