The purpose of this group is to read and discuss the teachings of Nisargadatta Maharaj. This is a group for anyone interested in or curious about Eastern philosophy and/or non-duality. We will meet regularly to explore together the book I Am That.
We will read the chapters together as a group and discuss.
Putting words together will not take you far. Go within and discover what you are not. Nothing else matters. - from chapter 10
To take the world as real and one’s self as unreal is ignorance. The cause of sorrow. To know the self as the only reality and all else as temporal and transient is freedom, peace and joy. - from chapter 11
Once you realise that the person is merely a shadow of the reality, but not reality itself, you cease to fret and worry. You agree to be guided from within and life becomes a journey into the unknown. - from chapter 12
