[The Teaching  of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi.  Sections appended below derive from Sri Ramana's Teaching.]

Our focus should be the Knowledge of the Self & not an attempt to determine what "this" is without first knowing "I".  If we attempt to determine what "this" is, without first knowing the "I", the best that we can hope for is one of those doctrinal suppositions mentioned previously. While that might be regarded as useful for some people as some kind of stepping stone, it would be a stepping stone to actually inquiring into the “I” and knowing the Self as it is, for in that way, alone, does one know Reality. This is so because the Reality, alone, can know the Reality.

The Ego is not produced by the World, the Body, the Senses, the Prana, or the Mind. These produce phenomena, sensations, physical, subtle & mental experiences, & thoughts.  These appear after the Ego is differentiated, & so they cannot produce the Ego, for the Effect does not produce the Cause.  The Ego is not produced by the Self, which is the Absolute.  The Absolute Self does not produce or create at all but ever just exists.


Liberation is our nature. It is another name for us.  Our wanting Liberation is a very funny thing.  It is like a man who is in the shade, voluntarily leaving the shade, going into the Sun, feeling the severity of the heat there, making great efforts to get back into the shade & then rejoicing. We are all doing exactly the same. We are not different from the Reality. We imagine we are different & then undergo great spiritual practices to get rid of the feeling of difference & realise the Oneness. Why imagine or create the feeling of difference & then have to destroy it ?

There is no Creation, no Destruction, no Bondage, no longing to be freed from Bondage, no striving for Liberation, nor anyone who has attained Liberation. Know that this to be Ultimate Truth.
