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

The knowledge ‘I am’, without memories and concepts, is everything. The idea ‘I am the body and mind’ is not that knowledge. No effort is required, the main thing is that ‘you are’ (or ‘I am’) when you listen to me and stay there, you’ll understand that the knowledge ‘I am’ is independent of body-mind.

 –       Nisargadatta Maharaj

Notes on this preliminary stage can be found here.

Apologies for interruptions to daily postings as a result of internet connection problems in Cape Town. Next week: Maharaj's pointers on seeing the "I Am" as not real.
