Cutting to the core!,
This review is from: The Ultimate Medicine: Dialogues with a Realized Master (Paperback)
The Ultimate Medicine, Dialogues with a Realized Master, is Nisargadatta Maharaj in the final years of his life.
His earlier work, I Am That: Talks with Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, is a classic and the core message of Advaita Vedanta. The Ultimate Medicine continues where I Am That leaves off, cutting to the core of the message.
Nisargadatta points directly at that I AM prior to thoughts, prior to the experience and idea of being a "person". His illness took away the patience to deal with the normal "spiritual" questions and forced the "seeker" to look straight in the direction of the looker, the witness, THAT which IS, the ACTUALITY of timeless being.
Most find the words of Nisargadatta difficult to understand - this is because the mind is utilized - isn't this the normal way of trying to attain, trying to add to the knowledge and wisdom to "get it"?
Nisargadatta would say that what you're seeking already IS, already is witnessing the very concept of a questioner. See the false as the false, the rest is irrelevant.
