Nisargadatta Maharaj (1897-1981

I am finally getting to read his book I AM THAT.
In moments when I can step back - I try to apply what he says.
The world appears so much more beautiful.
He says that we should just BE - and I try to BE.
And find the world so much more loving for that instant.
Feels like I am on vacation - with not a care.
I think I feel a bit more alive.
My perspective changes.
I have a strange knotty feeling at the ajna chakra.
I think of death in a nice way - how liberating that would be - and how I would still be what I am right now.
He recommends stillness of mind - I try that - it works for an instant.
I think once my mind is still, my atman kicks in, the world will be just a movie.
I wish it was.
I think I will get there someday, hopefully this life.
Ramesh says that it is already decided for.
I hope it is a good outcome of this particular life.

Nisargadatta Maharaj’s address:

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
