We are fortunate indeed to have what is in all likelihood a direct and accurate record of Nisargadatta Maharaj’s teachings. These are presented in the form of Nirupanas – as passages for meditation. That is their purpose and that is where they lead. Maharaj’s words will tear away all internal and external covers and leave your innermost core bare.The uniqueness of these Nirupanas therefore lies in the fact that here they come to us from an enlightened master’s direct experience – expressed spontaneously.Maharaj spoke in Marathi, and Dinkar Kshirsagar, being also Maharashtrian, wrote them down verbatim. After being translated into English, they have been diligently edited by Suresh Mehta.
