I ve read this book after finishing I Am That As his health was deteriorating, Nisargadatta wastes no time answering redundant questions and cuts right to the chase He says, your one and only self dwells underneath your thoughts and feelings that you carry and that are associated with your body, abide only in that self and drop everything else, drop the whole idea and the image that you carry about yourself You are not an individual, but a manifestation of consciousness Nisargadatta is not for t [...]
The message of this book is clear, you will learn a lot from realized master, but this book is than just a dialogues, this book open many possibilites to challenge your belief, it is kind of book that will be always re read every time, his teachings is very unique, and he always speak from his own realization, so you can t compare Maharaj with other gurus, the style of Maharaj in this book is always consistent Direct, provocative, cutting to the core and wasting little effort on inessentials.
