One outcome: my perception of my own Guru changed. I slowly began to understand what my Guru meant all along, especially when my Guru said that Non-Duality was 'not for everyone'. And the best answer I got from my Guru when asked about this book: "PLEASE read it! It will give one Courage"
In many other books written by other authors on the subject of NonDuality, the language and concepts are academic and often employs complicated and convoluted hyperbole often indirectly hinting at the author's erudition and education. But in this book, NM's language and philosophy is simple and direct, based entirely on personal experience as opposed to second-hand knowledge, which makes it endearing and understandeable.
My greatest relief was that NM did away with all externalities and all blind rituals. There were no 'special times' or any Earth-centric 'Power zones' or any body-centric Chakras and stuff. He made me understand the need to be earnestly aware of the 'I AM' and dwell on that alone, without expectation or desire. This rang in me: the sense 'I AM' was there all along, from childhood, and never changed, ever. I had to be aware of all, then see the sense of the witness, anytime, any place.
To this day I have never completed this book, ever. Even now, I cannot get past a couple of pages without feeling a tremendous calmness and quiet that makes me stop reading, drop the book, get into a spontaneous state of witnessing that has no labels and definitions.
There are people who call it names: 'condescending', and 'drivel', some who focus on the quality of the book, or the supposedly grammatical errors and typos. To them one can only say that it's NOT meant for them.
One day, they'll awaken.
One thing I would say to keep in mind, is that when Shri Nisargadatta Maharaj is answering a question that someone asks, he is directing His answer to the specific spiritual development of the questioner…not necessarily to the spiritual advancement, (or not), of the reader. So if you find that some parts of the book seem contradictory, keep in mind, they are not.
This book is EXCELLENT! If you have found your way here to "I AM THAT", and are looking for answers, there is a reason you are now reading this post. Also, Nisargadatta DOES have a Living Master by the name of Shri Ramakant Maharaj. Nisargadatta Maharaj was Ramakant Maharaj's Master for nineteen years. If you are serious about meeting a Master from this powerful Lineage, and/or getting initiated into this powerful Lineage, please look into Shri Ramakant Maharaj's book, called "Selfless Self". This book is edited by Ann Shaw, and Master Ramakant Maharaj goes right for the Direct and Living Truth of this Lineage. I have personally been initiated by Shri Ramakant Maharaj, and cannot wait to be in His presence once again. Powerful teachings is an understatement!
