Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

24 Jul

As long as you deal in terms: ‘real – unreal’, awareness is the only reality that can be. But the Supreme is beyond all distinctions and to it the term ‘real’ does not apply, for in it all is real and, therefore, need not be labeled as such. It is the very source of reality, it imparts reality to whatever it touches. It just cannot be understood through words. Even a direct experience, however sublime, merely bears testimony, nothing more.

— Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That’, p 303
