Back cover This collection of the timeless teachings of one of the greatest sages of India, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, is a testament to the uniqueness of the seer's life and work and is regarded by many as a modern spiritual classic. I Am That (first published in 1973) continues to draw new audiences and to enlighten seekers anxious for self-realization. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj was a teacher who did not propound any ideology or religion, but gently unwrapped the mystery of the self. His message was simple, direct, and sublime. I Am That preserves his dialogs with the followers who came from around the world seeking guidance in destroying false identities. The sage's sole concern was with the 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 the 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. A simple man, Maharaj was a householder and petty storekeeper in Bombay where he lived and died in 1981 at the age of 84. He had not been educated formally but came to be respected and loved for his insights into the crux of human pain and for the extraordinary lucidity of his direct disclosure. Hundreds of diverse seekers traveled the globe and sought him out in his unpretentious home in Bombay (now Mumbai) to hear him. To all of them, he gave hope that "beyond the real experience is not the mind, but the self, the light in which everything appears ... the awareness in which everything happens." In the humble abode of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, but for the electric lights and the noises of the street traffic, one would not know in which period of human history one dwells. There is an atmosphere of timelessness about his tiny room; the subjects discussed are timeless -- valid for all times; the way they are expounded and examined is also timeless; the centuries, millennia and yugas fall off and one deals with matters immensely ancient and eternally new. The discussions held and teachings given would have been the same ten thousand years ago and will be the same ten thousand years hence. There will always be conscious beings wondering about the fact of their being conscious and enquiring into its cause and aim. Whence am I? Who am I? Whither am I? Such questions have no beginning and no end. And it is crucial to know the answers, for without a full understanding of oneself, both in time and in timelessness, life is but a dream, imposed on us by powers we do not know, for purposes we cannot grasp. I Am That is a legacy from a unique teacher who helps the reader to a clearer understanding of himself as he comes to Maharaj with the age-old question, "Who am I?" Seekers were never turned away from the humble abode of Maharaj during his life and can still find their answers to this timeless question in the pages of this book today.

Wegweisende Gespräche mit Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj »Pointers" - ein englischer Titel für ein deutsches Buch? »Pointed" ist das englische Wort für »scharf, pointiert, treffend", »Fingerzeige" zum Mond. Besser kann man die Gespräche mit Nisargadatta und die Erläuterungen von R.S. Balsekar nicht beschreiben. Die Rückmeldungen unserer Kunden (und die Verkaufszahlen der einschlägigen Bücher) sowie die schnelle Entwicklung der sogenannten »Satsang Szene" belegen: Advaita Vedanta, die Lehre der Non-Dualität, wird zur ersten Wahl für Menschen, die ihre Suche zu einem Ende führen wollen. Advaita Vedanta bietet ein philosophisch-spirituelles Konzept mit sehr lebensnahen Konsequenzen, wie es kompromissloser und eindeutiger keines gibt. Ideal für den modernen Menschen, der dabei - ob spirituell interessiert oder nicht - eine tief entstressende Sicht der Welt und seiner Stellung in ihr vermittelt bekommt.Balsekar, selbst ein herausragender Vertreter dieser Richtung, präsentiert die wesentlichen Aspekte der Lehre Sri Nisargadatta Maharajs. Er zeichnet dessen Gespräche mit Besuchern nach und vermittelt auch dem skeptischen Leser einen lebendigen und anregenden Zugang.

Experience afresh, the true essence of his teaching Recently, some long-forgotten tapes of Nisargadatta Maharaj's talks were unearthed from the archives of S. K. Mullarpattan, Maharaj's interpreter for the longest time. These tapes contained recordings of some of Maharaj's talks with seekers, held during the last two years of his life. They capture afresh the essence and flavour of the teachings of this world-renowned Master of Advaita - the Hindu philosophy of Non-duality. These dialogues find a new relevance for our times. For, in one of these talks, Maharaj made a special reference to his earlier book I Am That and said, "That book and whatever was expounded at that time was only relevant for that period. I am speaking differently today. As a matter of fact, this should also have been recorded and published as it is in greater detail, and is emphasizing different aspects." More than 25 years later, that wish of Nisargadatta Maharaj is being fulfilled with the publication of these talks in Beyond Freedom. This is a book all devotees of Maharaj will want to read with ardent fervour and enthusiasm.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981), a revered master of the Tantric Nath lineage, is an inspiring example of an ordinary family man who attained complete realization of the Infinite. His words carry a rare potency that can jolt the listener or reader into a profound sense of awareness, which at the same time signifies true freedom-the freedom from all fear and mental suffering. In this volume, Nisargadatta clearly demonstrates that logic and spirituality do not necessarily stand in opposition to one another. In a chapter after which this book has been titled, Nisargadatta relentlessly pursues a logical argument with the visitor to its very end.

»Das Erste, was du dir vergegenwärtigen sollst, ist: Du wirst nie verschwinden oder sterben, weil du nie geboren wurdest. Du hast immer als Bewusstsein existiert und wirst immer als Bewusstsein existieren. Du gehst nirgendwohin und kommst von nirgendwo zurück. Du bist einfach. Du bist das Selbst, du bist Allgegenwärtigkeit.« Auf verschiedenste Weise, aus verschiedenster Perspektive sagt uns Robert Adams immer wieder nur dies. So eindringlich, so klar, so direkt, dass der Teil in uns, der diese tiefe Wahrheit schon immer wusste, in Resonanz kommt mit seinen Worten. Alles Überflüssige fällt ab. Die reine Wahrheit bleibt: »Du bist unendlich, unvergänglich, selbstleuchtend, selbstexistierend. Du bist ohne Anfang und Ende. Die Welt und ihre Manifestationen können dich nicht länger zum Narren halten. Du kannst die Quelle fühlen, weil du die Quelle bist. Alles ist gut.« Robert Adams ist revolutionär in seiner Direktheit. Sein Körper starb 1997. Die Wahrheit seiner Worte wird jeden Tag neu geboren, in uns, die wir sie lesen und uns von ihnen ergreifen und wandeln lassen.

Ramana Maharshi war erst 21 Jahre alt, als er die Grundlage fur das Buchlein Wer bin ich? schuf, ohne dass er je die Absicht hatte, ein Buch uber seine Lehre zu schreiben. Er wohnte in der Virupaksha-Hohle auf dem Arunachala. Obwohl er in jener Zeit nicht sprach, fuhlten die Menschen instinktiv, dass er ein Weiser war und kamen mit ihren spirituellen Fragen und Problemen zu ihm. Einer von ihnen war Sivaprakasam Pillai, ein Philosoph, der bei einer Finanzbehorde beschaftigt war. In den Buchern, die er studiert hatte, konnte er auf seine existenzielle Frage Wer bin ich? keine Antwort finden. 1902 besuchte er den Maharshi auf dem Berg und stellte ihm seine brennenden Fragen. Ramana schrieb die Antworten entweder auf den Boden oder mit Kreide auf Schiefer. Sivaprakasam Pillai schrieb sich die Fragen und Antworten nachtraglich aus dem Gedachtnis auf. Seine Sammlung wurde jedoch erst 1923 als Frage-und-Antwort-Version veroffentlicht. Ramana hat wenige Jahre spater davon eine Essay-Version verfasst. Dies ist die Ubersetzung der Essay-Version und einiger ausgewahlter Gesprache mit Ramana Maharshi.

Reflections on the Teaching of G.I. Gurdjieff and the Perennial Order

Frank Sinclair, author of Without Benefit of Clergy: Some Personal Footnotes to the Gurdjieff Teaching, has written a searching sequel to his earlier account of a life devoted to the exploration of the perennial wisdom. Drawn as a young man to the Greek-Armenian esotericist G.I. Gurdjieff’s ideas about the Great Knowledge—”the powerful ancient stream of true knowledge of being”—Sinclair has spent half a century in this vocation. The present book recounts his ponderings on the “unfolding reality” of the perennialist vision following a near-fatal brush with the “outer darkness” and the passing of his wife of almost 50 years. In the process, he delves into the timeless mysteries of life and death.
