Banyen's Description: 

Pointers from Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj captures some of the force and immediacy of his teachings, as expressed in short articles by Ramesh Balsekar. Nisargadatta untiringly guided others to inquire into the origin of consciousness. The beauty and intensity of Nisargadatta’s life and teaching is portrayed in an authentic and intuitive manner.

Does your waking state come about by itself, or do you awaken yourself as an act of volition? Indeed, the least effort on “your” part will prevent what otherwise might have happened naturally and spontaneously. And the joke within the joke is that your deliberately not doing anything will also prevent it happening! It is simple, really; “doing” something and “not doing” something are both volitional effort. There must be a total absence of the “do-er”, the total absence of both the positive and the negative aspects of “doing.” Indeed, this is true “surrender.”



Publisher’s Description: 

This publication is alive with the intensity and force of Nisargadatta’s spiritual realization, and the fierceness and dedication with which he relentlessly strove to accelerate other’s liberation. He encouraged to inquire into the origin of consciousness and the illusory nature of arising phenomena. The primary reason for the book’s effectiveness is that the author enjoys a profound intuition of his Teacher’s realization. - David Diaman (The Laughing Man).
