Truth is the state beyond concepts – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Some thoughts of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Truth is the state beyond concepts.

Whenever there is sense of individuality, personality or separateness, you have so many wants. But when that sense of separateness is not there, when you are one with the totality, there are no wants.

Do whatever you want, but never forget the reality, never forget what you really are. You are not the body, you are not the food, you are not this vital air. Whatever has appeared is a state, and as such it has to go.

You take the seed of the Banyan tree. It is very small, smaller that the mustard seed. The seed is very subtle, but all the gross matter is already inside it. Do you see the paradox? Similarly, your essential being is the subtlest, yet it contains the whole universe.
