“When I met my Guru, he told me: ‘You are not what you take yourself
to be. Find out what you are. Watch the sense I am, find your real
Self.’ I obeyed him, because I trusted him. I did as he told me. …
I simply followed (my teacher’s) instruction which was to focus the
mind on pure being I am, and stay in it. I used to sit for hours
together, with nothing but the I am in my mind and soon peace and
joy and a deep all-embracing love became my normal state. In it all
disappeared — myself, my Guru, the life I lived, the world around
me. Only peace remained and unfathomable silence.”
~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
