[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.]

The unreal cannot know the Real. The Ego is unreal, & as long as we take up our position, as it were, in the Ego, our knowledge of things is unreal. If we want to know what is what, we must know who is who. The undifferentiated, doubtless state is that which has abandoned the objective outlook. The highest Bliss, the most profound Happiness.  Profound Happiness is remaining in that state in which one is just the Absolute, with no separate identity, no Ego-"I"-notion, no being drawn toward an "I"-notion, & no conception of an objective World.

That the Ego is said to rise from the Origin, or Substrate, of the Self is expedient teaching for those desirous of Liberation intended to guide them to the Origin, the one Substrate, in order to realize its Egoless nature. Such instruction should not be interpreted as about the Ego really being born or the Self actually giving birth to it.  The Ego cannot be self-produced, for to imagine so would be to suppose its pre-existence, which is absurd.  And that would lead to the consequent question as to what caused that pre-existent Ego. This in turn would lead either to the Delusion regarding the Effects causing the Cause or a modification in the eternally, changeless Self.  Those possibilities have already been negated by Self-Inquiry, or relegated to an infinite regression.


What is Bliss but your own Existence ?  You are not apart from Existence which is the same as Bliss. You are now thinking that you are the Mind or the Body which are both changing & transient.  But you are unchanging & Eternal. 

Ignorance must go.  Who says, "I am ignorant ?"  He must be the "witness" of Ignorance.  That is what you are.
