If so, you will have to tread on your Path until the Self is given more preeminence in your life as the sole Reality of What You Are.

I consider the books containing the teaching of Shri Nisargadatta Maharaj as my own guru.

Format: Hardcover
Quietly and unobtrusively this masterpiece has crept onto the market. A high quality hardcover published in India privately, the book is one of the best expositions of Advaita, meditation and Advaita in existence in the English language.

The book is a translated series of talks given by Siddharameshwar Maharaj in 1934 to a small group of his devotees including Nisargadatta Maharaj and Ranjit Maharaj. Nisargadatta was then a devotee; he recognised the greatness of his master and of his elder fellow disciples, and made notes of these talks as they were spoken, in Marathi. In later years the book was made available in two volumes in Marathi only. Within three years of meeting this master Nisargadatta realised and the rest is history! In 2006 it was translated and made into one high quality volume which also includes a re-translation of another book by Siddharameshwar, "Master Key to Self Realization" which makes up the first small part of the book. As far as I know only two thousand copies have been printed in English. The translation is ably made by a a man who had already translated J. Krishnamurti books into Marathi. In some places it is obvious that he has used Anglicisms unnecessarily, e.g. Priest instead of Brahmin; Illusion sometimes instead of Maya, but these are very small points and in no way detract from the book.

The teachings are profound, and exhibit the authority that only a Self- Realized man or woman can muster. It covers pure advaita, bhakti beyond liberation, and hammers away at the readers ego-consciousness in a way rarely ever seen in a book,it would have been an awakening experience to be present at these talks. In my own opinion, however, it is not for beginners on the path.

Master of Self-Realization: An Ultimate Understanding by Shri Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj available by Sadguru Publishing May 22, 2010.

This work is a translation of words spoken by the Maharaj from November 11, 1934 to December 8, 1935. They contain in Them the fruit of Realization Itself. A disciple of His Grace, Shri Nisargadatta Maharaj, who had the remarkable privilege of recording these Spiritual Discourses of His Holiness, wrote two beautiful Prefaces (one for each of the two Volumes). Nisargadatta's Teachings are immortalized in the Discourses recorded in "I Am That". Also included are the informative "Note from the Editor" (by David Moe); "A Few Words About This Book" (by Satish Avhad); and "Translator's Note" (by D.A. Ghaisas). These three together give the reader a better sense of the rich Advaita history leading to the Spoken Words of His Holiness Shri Siddharameshwar Maharaj. As David writes at the end of his Note: "Jai Sadguru Parabrahman!"

The main text of Master of Self-Realization is made up of three parts. Part I is "Master Key to Self Realization" authored by His Holiness. Master Key is 7 Chapters within 76 pages, that open the book, prepping the reader well for the adventure he or she is about to undertake. Part II is Volume 1 of His Holiness' Discourses that concluded on October 2, 1935. Part III is Volume 2, the first Discourse of this Volume given October 3, 1935 and the last given December 8, 1935. The purity in this work is timeless. A work spoken in 1934 and 1935 might have some monastic and/or patriarchal biases. This work has none. In fact, where one might expect some great principle of "family" being rejected for the monastic mount or monestary, we don't find this at all. Women and family are given proper due.

This is esoteric, obviously, so if you are interested in Self-Knowledge, if you are looking to awaken the Buddha within, if you are hoping to awaken Christ Consciousness--obviously these are the terms one has already come to know who is meant to read this text.

Reading I Am That--Nisargadatta Maharaj was essentially my introduction to this book. This is a book containing profound teachings. Whatever I say is only words here, they do fall short of this work. If your search has led you here, drink.

The blessings of the Sadguru be with you.

It is rare to come across such a gem of spiritual teachings. The power of the sampradaya of Nisgaradatta and Ranjit Maharaj truly comes through in the illuminative teachings contained in this text.

This book is one that I would recommend to anyone on the spiritual path as well as those who feel that they are finished with the path.

Spending time with this book is truly like sitting at the feet of the Sadguru.

This book surely should be a spiritual classic. I hope that it will become more widely available, so that it may help others on their spiritual path as it has helped me. It illuminates many of the timeless spiritual teachings of his disciples set forth in the books "I Am That" (Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj) and Illusion vs. Reality (Sri Ranjit Maharaj). The translator did a wonderful job in making the teachings clear and understandable (with even a little bit of unexpected humor!), so the book is a joy to read in addition to being "enlightening".

Namaste.
