Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

4 Aug

Insanity is universal. Sanity is rare. Yet there is hope, because the moment we perceive our insanity we are on the way to sanity. This is the function of the Guru – to make us see the madness of our daily living. Life makes you conscious, but the teacher makes you aware.

— Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That’, p 282
