By Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

(Except from his only handwritten book of the same name)*

When we concentrate our attention on the origin of thought, the thought process itself comes to an end; there is a hiatus, which is pleasant, and again the process starts. Turning from the external world and enjoying the objectless bliss, the mind feels that the world of objects is not for it. Prior to this experience the un satiating sense enjoyments constantly challenged the mind to satisfy them, but from the inward turn onwards its interest in them begins to fade. Once the internal bliss is enjoyed, the external happiness loses its charm. One who has tasted the inward bliss is naturally loving and free from envy, contented and happy with others’ prosperity, friendly and innocent and free from deceit. He is full of the mystery and wonder of the bliss. One who has realized the Self can never inflict pain on other.


Original title in Marathi was

"Atmagnyana and Paramatmayoga".

Translated into English by Vasudeo Madhav Kulkarni, at the time a Professor at Elphinstone College, Bombay, Indi
