Don't become disheartened by thinking,
'When shall I obtain the bliss of yoga, the state of the Self?'
because the true state of Self-knowledge is always the same,
shining timelessly without spatial coordinates such as near and far.

Guru Vachaka Kovai 781
Muruganar

The profound yet simple words of this extraordinary teacher
are designed to jolt us into awareness of our original nature.
Like the Zen masters of old, Nisargadatta's style is abrupt, provocative, and immensely profound-
-cutting to the core and wasting little effort on inessentials.
His terse but potent sayings are known for their ability to trigger shifts in consciousness,
just by hearing, or even reading them.

Hold on to the knowingness, not words,
whatever you are, be there effortlessly, absolutely
without effort, affirm what you have heard,
the listener and the listened matter is ultimately useless.
The five elemental essence, activated by three gunas, is beingness.
When you know you are not the
beingness, let be the beingness, you are not concerned.
All talk is because of beingness, the beingness
is doing all the talking, not you.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

He was a triumphant example,
a living realization of the  complete renunciation of lust and money. 
He was far beyond any idea of either; and such a man was necessary for this  present age.
Such renunciation is necessary in these days
when men have begun to think that they cannot live even a  month
without what they call their 'necessities,'
while at the same time they are increasing in geometrical ratio. 
It was   necessary in a time like this - 
one man should arise to demonstrate to the skeptics of the world
that he cared not a straw for all the gold
and all the wealth that was in the universe.

All thinking obviously is conditioned; there is no such thing as free thinking. Thinking can never be free, it is the outcome of our conditioning, of our background, of our culture, of our climate, of our social, economic, political background. The very books that you read and the very practices that you do are all established in the background, and any thinking must be the result of that background. So if we can be aware-and we can go presently into what it signifies, what it means, to be aware-perhaps we shall be able to uncondition the mind without the process of will, without the determination to uncondition the mind. Because the moment you determine, there is an entity who wishes, an entity who says, 'I must uncondition my mind.' That entity itself is the outcome of our desire to achieve a certain result, so a conflict is already there. So, it is possible to be aware of our conditioning, just to be aware-in which there is no conflict at all. That very awareness, if allowed, may perhaps burn away the problems.

He is the husband of the lady who gave birth to our Subrahmanya!
He has manifested as the Deity in the Tirukkara temple in Tirukkadampur
located in the south!
His duty is to protect me!
My duty is to serve Him selflessly!
