    DEDICATIONS TO MAHARAJ  AND SALUTATIONS TO THE INDWELLING DIVINITY IN  ALL

THAT THOU ART

"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"

          WHO ARE YOU? ASK YOURSELF "WHO AM I?" AM I  MY THOUGHTS? AM I MY NAME? MY BODY? AM I PURE AWARENESS?

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 not has been projected 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  (d.1936)

His teaching includes: The Birds 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 the ceaseless efforts to achieve this Final Reality. He said:

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

By the grace of his Master 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 recalls how  SIDDHARAMESHWAR 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!


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

Sri Bhausaheb was initiated in 1858 by Nimbargi (see below), awakened and taught meditation, (THE ANTS' 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. “* 

"Nondual Self-Awareness"

"objectless consciousness, as awareness ": Abide within and close the door

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









            Sri Nimbargi Maharaj 

            Sri Bhausaheb Maharaj

 

NavNath Sampradaya lineage of 9 gurus provide basis and origins of  Nisargadattas' 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 decided to verbalize their sense of kinship by calling themselves Navnaths."

Nisargadatta'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.

also known as

SRI NIMBARGI  MAHARAJ (d.1885)

Nimbargi originated 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, every thing will be secured and one will attain Peace -Swa-sthata, ‘Swa’ means ones’s own form i.e. Swarupa and Stha means ‘steadiness’’ i.e. Sthirata.

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

                   Navnath Lineage

Nisargadattas'  teachings have been and remain  direct and often challenging for aspirants outwith and within the Indian traditions.

"I Am That" (1973 Morris Frydman) is a wonderful introduction to Nisargadattas' teachings and an aid to 

self-enquiry and has provided the largest single written conduit for the global unfolding of  Non-Dual understanding across  the World. 

Other writings detailing the teachings of Nisargadatta  worthy of  note here include:

Beyond Freedom - Maria Jory (2009)

The Navnath Sampradaya and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj - Cathy Boucher

 * "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."
