Nisargadatta took me beyond the need for further help.

Post by shivak » Sun Mar 16, 2008 9:09 pm

2 to 3 years ago I first got in contact with Adyashanti's material online.
I found him great.....


A bit later I discovered Gangaji and bought her book "the diamond in her pocket".
I found the way she explained it abit more useful than Adyashanti.

I have read a part of "the power of now",
but Eckart Tolle's stuff has never really appealed to me.
I think Ecki explains things unnecessarily complicating.



Gangaji's book helped me realize my true nature a lot,
but there were still questions that weren't answered... which proved that I didn't really get it yet.

So finally I discovered Nisargadatta.
I've bought his book "I AM THAT" and have been reading it for the last year.
I have only read half of it so far, because the book is huge and I like to read slowly.

In Nisargadatta's book I have found what I couldn't find in any of the other teachers material who i've named in this thread.
I think his way of explaining is most SIMPLE but most COMPLETE at the same time...

He helped me move past the point of needing more help.
Wether I finish the book or not, I know it doesn't matter cause I understand now what I needed to understand...

Which is that "the ball is in my court" :idea:

Whoever is the catalyst for your awakening is the most meaningful teacher. What's important is the recognition of what is being pointed to. I'm glad you found someone who made that recognition easier.

The deeper one is established in the Now, the easier it is to see that ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME.

Or that "Truth is One, Paths are Many".

The more we are in the Now, the less preferences and judgments we have about paths and teachers and teachings.

I love Maharaj by the way. Just reading his book "I am That" lit a huge fire under my chair. It caused me to lengthen my meditation and to deepen in my desire to not leave the Now.

I stumbled upon Nisargadatta on Amazon. It was recommended to me cause I bought Robert Adams' "Silence of the heart" and I love them both. So simple and complete like you said. They are my only Teachers for enlightenment readings. I feel its best to follow 1-2 teachers who you resonate with rather than read too many books
