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 preserves his dialogues with the followers who came from around the world seeking guidance in destroying false identities. The sage's sole concern was with 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 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.
This edition of I AM THAT was translated from the Marathi tape recordings by Maurice Frydman, then revised and edited by Sudhakar S. Dikshit.
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 again and again with the ago-old questions, "whence am i? "who am I?" and "whither am I?" The listeners were never turned away from the humble abode of Maharaj then and are not turned away now.
