Not-knowing is true knowledge.
Presuming to know is a disease.
First realize that you are sick;
then you can move toward health.

The Master is her own physician.
She has healed herself of all knowing.
Thus she is truly whole.

~ Lao Tzu

The most powerful prayer, one well nigh omnipotent, and the worthiest work of all is the outcome of a quiet mind. The quieter it is the more powerful, the worthier, the deeper, the more telling and more perfect the prayer is. To the quiet mind all things are possible. What is a quiet mind? A quiet mind is one which nothing weighs on, nothing worries, which, free from ties and from all...

When we feel high, we have no problems. The problem comes when we feel low. Then the more one tries to feel high, the more the low feelings persist. When you feel low, jump into the lowest. Just go deep, observe and you will see a lot of sensations rising up, like fear. Agree to it, "All right, let it be. I will dive into it today." An amazing thing happens within you, a phenomenon. If you try...

In the light of consciousness all sorts of things happen and one need not give special importance to any. The sight of a flower is as marvellous as the vision of God. Let them be. Why remember them and then make memory into a problem? Be bland about them; do not divide them into high and low, inner and outer, lasting and transient. Go beyond, go back to the source, go to the self that is the...

[Lord Shiva to Parvati:] Listen to me, Lady! Know that only the wise man who never does anything which leads to the destruction of any form of life, such as insects, worms, birds or plants, is a person who is seeking true knowledge.

He (the true aspirant) should not pull out tender roots (of fragrant plants, which is often done for worship); he should not even pluck the leaves; he should not...

In the field of His play even getting means losing. This is but the nature of its movement. Think of Him Who cannot be lost. Meditate on Him alone, on Him, the Fountain of Goodness. Pray to Him; depend on Him. Try to give more time to japa and meditation. Surrender your mind at His Feet. Endeavour to sustain japa and meditation without a break.

I am not a spiritual person in the ordinary sense; I am a class unto myself. You cannot categorize and label me with others; I represent nobody else but myself. What you call me -- spiritual, religious, or anything else that you want -- does not matter. These labels are useless.

I will go on destroying your labels. I will go on trespassing over your labels and your boundaries. That's what I...

Actually, being what you are is the simplest. What is difficult is to stop being what you are not. Because we wish to keep hold of our attachments. Freedom is to be free of attachments and the main attachment is to the `I'-self.

Surrender often denotes a sense of weakness, failure or a sense of slavery. But there is another aspect of the word 'surrender' that denotes freedom. It simply means growing from limitation to limitlessness, merging into Divinity, the vast powerful ocean of Existence. A weak person cannot surrender. When you let go of all tension, fear, anxiety and small mindedness, what dawns in you is...

If you would realize in your heart, that everything is nothing, your mind would become still. You would become perfectly still. Ponder what I just said. If you would only realize in your heart that everything is nothing, there would be no thoughts. This is very profound. This is really all you have to do. Realize in your heart, not in your mind, but in your heart, that everything you behold,...

Zen says that if you drop knowledge - and within such knowledge everything is included, your name, your identity, everything, because this has been given to you by others - if you drop all that has been given by others, you will have a totally different quality to your being - innocence. This will be a crucifixion of the persona, the personality, and there will be a resurrection of your...

Do not resist pain. Allow it to be there. Surrender to the grief, despair, fear, loneliness, or whatever form the suffering takes. Witness it without labeling it mentally. Embrace it. Then see how the miracle of surrender transmutes deep suffering into deep peace. This is your crucifixion. Let it become your resurrection and ascension.

Can you coax your mind from its wandering
and keep to the original oneness?
Can you let your body become
supple as a newborn child's?
Can you cleanse your inner vision
until you see nothing but the light?
Can you love people and lead them
without imposing your will?
Can you deal with the most vital matters
by letting events take their course?
Can you step back from your own mind
and thus...

Questioner: Are you ever glad or sad? Do you know joy and sorrow?

Nisargadatta Maharaj: Call them as you please. To me they are states of mind only, and I am not the mind.

Questioner: Is love a state of mind?

Nisargadatta Maharaj: Again, it depends what you mean by love. Desire is, of course, a state of mind. But the realization of unity is beyond mind. To me, nothing exists by itself. All...

When you accept everything, everything is beyond dimensions. The earth is not great nor a grain of sand small. In the realm of Great Activity picking up a grain of sand is the same as taking up the whole universe. To save one sentient being is to save all sentient beings. Your efforts of this moment to save one person is the same as the eternal merit of Buddha.
