Format: Paperback
Nisargadatta Maharaj's "I AM THAT" is the last spiritual book you'll ever need to read. Congratulations, you've reached the end of your search! Nisargadatta's words are alive and will cut like a razor to the core of your being. Get this book! Read it and be devoured by it. Here are a few quotes...
Nothing can trouble you but your own imagination. (I AM THAT p.113)
General knowledge develops the mind, no doubt. But if you are going to spend your life in amassing knowledge, you build a wall round yourself. To go beyond the mind, a well-furnished mind is not needed. (p50)
The window is the absence of the wall, and it gives air and light because it is empty. Be empty of al mental content, of all imagination and effort, and the very absence of obstacles will cause reality to rush in. (p260)
Leave it all behind you. Forget it. Go forth, unburdened with ideas and beliefs. Abandon all verbal structures, all relative truth, all tangible objectives. (p340)
All are mere words, of what use are they to you? You are entangled in the web of verbal definitions and formulations. Go beyond your concepts and ideas; in the silence of desire and thought the truth is found. (p295)
Too much analysis leads you nowhere. There is in you the core of being which is beyond analysis, beyond the mind. You can know it in action only. The legitimate function of the mind is to tell you what is not. But if you want possitive knowledge, you must go beyond the mind. (p341)
Before you can know anything directly, non-verbally, you must know the knower. So far, you took the mind for the knower, but it is not so. The mind clogs you up with images and ideas, which leave scars in memory. You take remembering to be knowledge. True knowledge is ever fresh, new, unexpected. It wells up from within.

In the last year, I've read some of the most powerful books ever written on spiritual awakening / realization / enlightenment. None so far, has surpased what these concatenated symbols found in this book have emoted within me. He speaks from the Ultimate Ground of Being and addressing that same Ground within me - it's like I'm listening to a recorded message I've left myself to remind myself of who I am.
[If you've ever had a lucid dreaming experience, I can tell you that his message/Self-reminder will probably elicit the same feeling-realization you had upon achieving consciousness inside a dream for the very first time.]
His words cut through the ego, makes ashes of spellbounding psychological time in order to reveals what is naked, true, brilliantly vivid and Real; your own true being which cannot be described, only experienced. I feel as though my whole search has lead me to this point. If you find yourself here reading this review then congratulations! It's time to wake up sunshine because you've been dreaming for far too long.

It truly is the last book to be read for a purpose. If you find yourself still looking for more spiritual literature, after having read this book, re-read it. You may have missed the point. There is nothing to seek. This book is the best pointer to reality. I urge you to own it, read it, and remember it all the time.

Sri Nisargadatta's words will make your busy mind come to a screeching halt. This is the only book of his I've read, but theres a good chance I'll check some of his others out. This book is a very good tool for most seekers on the spiritual path.

Not a boring moment in reading this. It is in the format of the actual conversations that took place between various "seekers of truth" and Nisargadatta Maharaj. The question and answer format is easy to follow. It is like reading a screenplay script or watching a movie of two people exploring the realms beyond thought. In format this is very similar to the recorded dialogues of J. Krishnamurti.
If you are really after a clearer understanding of your relationship to your thoughts and the world around you, as well as
who or what you really are from a universal perspective then reading this book may bring the answers you have been looking for. If your are just "interested" then you may be disappointed because the truth of "you" lays beyond all mental conceptions of who you are.
joy,

This is a great book. The book records a series of interviews where the questions are as important, and insightful as the answers. They approach Nisargadatta from every possible angle. If you have a question, it'll be in there. Nisaragadatta's answers are clear, and the point. If you're looking for yourself, this book should point you the right direction.

I find after 30 years of seeking and thousands of books, this book is the ONE book I want and need now. The timeless wisdom of Infinite Silence given form for sincere seekers is at once inspiring and deadly: Inspiration to continue in the face of endless failure through knowing that THAT does exist ... in fact ONLY THAT exists ... but certain Death to my "knowing," my many concepts of what spirituality is.
Unlike teachers like Muktananda or the many others who prescribe arduous practices with a promise that "I" will get "Enlightened" if I just keep going, Maharaj and his kindred spirits like Ramesh Balsekar and Wayne Liquorman hold out no such phony carrots. The essence of their teaching is, the I that wants Enlightenment simply DOES NOT EXIST expect as a dreamed character in a vast dream of THAT.
I love it.
