Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj was a teacher who did not propound any ideology or religion but gently unwrapped the mystery of self. His message is simple, direct and yet sublime. I Am that preserves his dialogues with the followers who came from around the world seeking 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 timelessness of being. He taught that mind must recognize and penetrate it’s own state of being, not ‘being this or that, here or there then and now’, but just timeless being.
