Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj’s I AM THAT is one of my favorite books of all times. Nisargadatta’s words are transformational and cut like a razor to the core of our being, opening us up to the truth of who we are.
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981) lived and taught in a small apartment in the slums of Bombay. A realized master of the Tantric Nath lineage, he supported himself and his family by selling cheap goods in a small booth on the streets outside his tenement for many years.
His life exemplified the concept of absolute non-duality of being. His teaching style was simple, direct and immensely profound. His terse but potent sayings are known for their ability to trigger shifts in consciousness, just by hearing or reading them.
