Vegetarian Ideal

Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Nisargadatta Maharaj - I Am That

Learn to look without imagination, to listen without distortion: that is all.  Stop attributing names and shapes to the essentially nameless and formless, realize that every mode of perception is subjective, and whatever is seen or heard, touched or smelled, felt or thought, expected or imagined, is in the mind and not in reality, and you will experience peace and freedom from fear.

- Nisargadatta Maharaj


Nisargadatta Maharaj was an Indian spiritual teacher and philosopher of Advaita, and a Guru, belonging to the Inchgiri branch of the Navnath Sampradaya.

Born: April 17, 1897, Mumbai, India
Died: September 8, 1981, Mumbai, India


I Am That: Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Sudhaker S. Dikshit (Editor), Maurice Frydman (Translator)

This collection of the timeless teachings of one of the greatest sages of India, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, regarded by many as a "modern spiritual classic" is a testament to the uniqueness of the seer's life and work.

"I Am That" preserves Maharaj's dialogues with the followers who came from around the world seeking his guidance in destroying false identities.

The sage's sole concern was with human suffering and the ending of suffering. It was his mission to guide the individual to an understanding of his true nature and the timelessness of being. 

He taught that mind must recognize and penetrate its own state of being, "not being this or that, here or there, then or now," but just timeless being.

I Am That: Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
The real does not die, the unreal never lived..

Once you know that death happens to the body and not to you. you just watch your body falling off like a discarded garment.

The real you is timeless and beyond birth and death.  The body will survive as long as it is needed.  It is not important that it should live long.
