Cover of I Am That: Talks with Sri Nisargadatta

To understand suffering, you must go beyond pain and pleasure. Your own desires and fears prevent you from understanding and thereby helping others. In reality there are no others, and by helping yourself you help everybody else. If you are serious about the sufferings of mankind, you must perfect the only means of help you have – yourself.

Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That‘, p 383
