Question : The desire for liberation is also a desire, isn't it ?

NISARGADATTA Maharaj : Don't talk about liberation, talk about yourself, what you are. When you understand what you are, both knowledge and ignorance disappear. You only require knowledge so long as the ignorance is there.


"If one obtains and relishes the nectar of the Lord's feet, the charan-amrita, the mind can be conquered. This means that the mind will no longer hold sway over us; its mastery imposed on us from childhood will no longer oppress us... But how can such a state be attained? Only if one totally accepts the knowledge "I am" as oneself with full conviction and faith and firmly believes in the dictum I am that by I know "I am". This knowledge "I am" is the charan-amrita. Why is it called amrita - the nectar? Because... by drinking nectar, one becomes immortal. Thus, a true devotee, by abiding in the knowledge "I am" transcends the experience of death and attains immortality.""There are no conditions to fulfill. There is nothing to be done, nothing to be given up. Just look and remember, whatever you perceive is not you, nor yours. It is there in the field of your consciousness, but you are not the field and its content, nor the knower of the field. It is your idea that you have to do things that entangle you in the results of your efforts. The motive, the desire, the failure to achieve, the sense of frustration - all this holds you back. Simply look at whatever happens and know that you are beyond it."

RANJIT MAHARAJ: Death is to the body. You are not the body. What comes must go, but you are ever there. Electricity doesn't worry if a bulb goes off. Put in another bulb and you get the light. You are everywhere. You are the source of everything. How can you die? Master makes you He (the Reality), no death for you. I still go ahead and say this is a dead body at the moment.Power is connected, it speaks. In a fraction of a second power can be disconnected.Be He, that's the main point.
