This series is a collection of pointers or teaching aphorisms by Nisargadatta Maharaj on stabilizing the view on the sense “I Am” without attributes. Remember, to know Yourself, return to the silence before words.

The illusion of being the body-mind is there, only because it is not investigated. Non investigation is the thread on which all the states of mind are strung. All states of mind, all names and forms of existence are rooted in non-inquiry, non-investigation, in imagination and credulity. It is right to say 'I am', but to say 'I am this', 'I am that' is a sign of not inquiring, not examining, of mental weakness or lethargy.
