About the Author

Nirmala offers a unique vision and a gentle, compassionate approach, which adds to the rich tradition of spiritual exploration and awakening. He offers satsang or "gatherings for the truth" across the United States and around the world as a celebration of the possibility, in every moment, of recognizing the limitless awareness and love that is our true nature. He also offers Nondual Spiritual Mentoring, or spiritual guidance, in one-on-one sessions either in person or over the phone. He is the author of several spiritual books, including Nothing Personal, That Is That, Meeting the Mystery, and Living from the Heart. His website offers free ebooks, book excerpts, audios, videos, a blog, and a monthly newsletter.

I lucked across this book when I was in the Kindle store. I didn't even look at a preview; I just bought it. When I began to read I was knocked over. This book delivers much more than I ever expected. Nirmala's thoughts about the mind and life are like mine. It's like he's looking though my eyes, saying the things I knew but had not put words to. After an awakening I had in 1997, I've been thoughtful as to what I read. So many books are based on the old spiritual paradigm. This book however is the product of the evolution of consciousness and the author writes from that flow. Each thought Nirmala speaks is like a love song to life. I'm drinking this book in. When I enter the words it's like I'm in a temple. I have meditated in caves in India and the peacefulness this book emanates is the same peace. Some books are dry. Some books are complicated. Some books strange. This book is truly the living word. It is alive. I recommend this book to anyone who is willing to give up the daily drama for the direct and delightful experience enlightened ones refer to as reality. That Is That: Essays About True Nature

I approached this book with an open mind and an open heart and I was blown away.

It is amazing to me that such power can be conveyed by ink on paper.

Imagine that you have spent your whole life looking for "truth" or "the answer" and you somehow run into someone who just asks you to try to give up looking, so you do, and then, wham, you find yourself standing in front of the fountain of all truth, and it is beautiful, and calming, though maybe not particularly what you expected.

This book helps me get in touch with the truth that lies at the core of my being.

I can't read more than one or two pages before I have to put the book down and reflect and marvel on what I have just read!

Nirmala is a great teacher.

While this book is a little more linguistically flowery than the austere Zen tradition I am used to, Nirmala nonetheless manages to point to the heart of the non-dual teachings, and in an approachable, friendly way that western minds will appreciate. I recommend it - and the price is right!

Sometimes you read the same information, yet stated differently than you've heard before, and the door in your mind/heart opens up and the truth of what you're hearing floods in. So it was for me when I first read the work of Nirmala. I invite you to do the same.

This book is full of wise pearls. Every page has an 'aha' moment. If you are on the path of finding spiritual Truths, this book will affirm what you have already come to know within. It will also point to truths waiting to be discovered by you. No matter where you are on the Inner Journey, this book gently and firmly gives you support. I loved reading it and would recommend it to anyone seeking a spiritual communion with the Divine.
This book met my expectations in a way that many other books on my spiritual journey have not. The author is firmly rooted in what he writes about.....experiences gleaned from his own investigation into Stillness.
Easy to read. Lots of things to mull over. One of the best books I've encountered in a long time. Namaste.

This book is a excellent guide into spaciousness. The "exercises" - or suggestions are great. I found that his way of "looking" at things opened my heart and helped close the useless thoughts that interfere. A book to be read slowly, with no expectations but to look into yourself. I found it very helpful for my own inner journey. I enjoy Nirmala's way of describing this inner space whether through written words, or through his audio recordings. A real master.
