I Am Not the Body AudioBook Summary
Talks on nonduality by one of the greatest spiritual teachers
In this book of key spiritual teachings from unpublished discourses, the great Advaita Master, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, teaches us that we are not limited to the body. Because of our mistaken body identity, we feel separate from what we truly are. Our identification with the body and mind subjects us to endless cycles of pleasure and pain, desire and fear, which cause us to search beyond ourselves for that which we believe we lack.
According to Sri Nisargadatta, all conditions, all names and appearances, emerge from ignorance and imagination, from the mind’s assumptions – assumptions due to not enquiring and therefore not appreciating the nature of reality. When we realize that we are not limited to the body, we find that we are already free, needing no liberation. We discover that we are not only free, but infinite and boundless.
