[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 Worldless, "I"less Reality is your True Nature, & that alone is completely satisfying. "True" & "false" are concepts about Existence.  "Conscious" & "inert" are concepts about Consciousness. "Suffering" & "Happiness"” are concepts about Bliss. Neither of the concepts of these Dualities can compare with the Existence-Consciousness-Bliss realized as the No-Creation ("the World is not seen") & the Unborn ("no 'I' ") nature of the Absolute.  No-Creation is the Realization of Knowledge, in which Reality comprehends Itself, & this is not a sensory experience. Reality is the Self of all. There is no existent "other" one to find it otherwise.

Always, there is 1 Reality, the Non-Dual Self.  All Illusion arises without a real cause & vanishes in the Knowledge of the Self.  Self-Knowledge, or Self-Realization, is the natural state (sahaja), the only Real State there is.  Pure Existence is forever un-changing.  The Self is the Source of all.  All depend on & appear in the Self.  The Self is the Beginning. The Self is that which pervades all.  The Self is the actual Existence of all.  The Self is the "middle".  The Self is That into which all dissolves.  The Self is the End. The Self, being universal, is all in all at all times.

The Self is solid Existence, invariable, unmodified, indestructible, & ever Still.  The Self is ever-shining Consciousness, the one all-pervading Light "without a shadow".  The Self is Bliss, the long-sought Happiness, the invariable perfect Fullness (purnam), & the Bliss of the Sages.  Existence-Consciousness-Bliss is the Self of the Sages, the Self of the spiritual aspirants, the Self of the Guru, the Self of the disciple, & the Self of All. Knowledge is Pure Existence.  Pure Existence is Knowledge.  There is no Duality in this. That is, in this there is no Knower & Known, & no being one thing & knowing another. There is no Ego in this. This is Egoless Knowledge.


Can the feeling in a place be Bliss ?  When you leave that place you say you are unhappy. Therefore this Peace is not permanent, it is mixed with unhappiness which is felt in another place. Therefore you cannot find Bliss in places & in periods of time.  Bliss must be permanent in order that it may be useful.  It is

your own Existence which is permanent.  Be the Self & that is Bliss.  You are always that.
