I Am That
Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
by Nisargadatta Maharaj
Collecting Nisargadatta Maharaj's speeches on the Advaita Vedanta, I Am That explores the human existence and our association with the body. Believing that the body is all limits the consciousness and it is only when we move beyond and look at the Atman that we are able to realize ourselves for who we are. Realization that we are, that we truly "are" is pivotal in Advaita philosophy, freeing us from self-doubt and weakness. Nisargadatta Maharaj's teachings and messages permeate within this book, translated by Maurice Frydman from the original Marathi.

He was an incredibly clear and amusingly irascible guru. He said a few crazy things, as many gurus do. But if you stick to what he was claiming about the nature of experience, I think you’re on firm ground and that book is very accessible and it’s in dialogue format.
