Nonduality: The Varieties of Expression


Starting February 1, 2018, Nonduality.com will operated by James Traverse.

James Traverse has over 40 years of experience in the art and science of yoga. He is a yoga educator and writer who communicates the direct approach to understanding your true nature. This experiential means, which is founded on a switchover from conceiving to purely perceiving, flowered principally out of Jamesí studies with his teacher, Jean Klein, who initiated him in the ways of Advaita Vedanta and Kashmiri Shaivism. His other influences include the works of J. Krishnamurti, David Bohm, Rumi, Adi Shankaracharya, Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Atmananda Krishnamenon and the yoga of B K S Iyengar, whose method he studied intensely for the first 15 years of his yoga journey.

The Nondual Highlights      

Sell cleverness and buy wonderment:
cleverness is opinion, wonder is vision.

Everything is That lost in That

There is no "You" or "I," no object
to contemplate, no contemplation!
Everything is That lost in That.

The blind theologians didn't understand.
Then they saw, and their seven levels
of attainment dissolved to nothing.

- Lalla
14th Century North Indian mystic

` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `
  When you demand nothing of the world,
nor of God, when you want nothing, seek
nothing, expect nothing then the Supreme
State will come to you uninvited and
unexpected.

- Nisargadatta Maharaj

` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `    

Self is always Present, Bliss is always Present.
You are not to work at attaining it,
just remove the obstacles by which you can't see it.
The hindrance is only one: Attachment to the past.

- Papaji


"The Truth Is"
Sri H.W.L. Poonja
Yudhishtara, 1995


` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `  

"Memory is the one thing that creates the whole world,  and
memory is the last link that connects one with the phenomenal
world.  If memory is understood to be nothing but a thought, 
which in turn is nothing but pure Consciousness – the Self –
then memory,  and the world with it, is merged into the Self."  

- Krishna Menon

 

"Not that only, but the co-existence,
Or say that the end precedes the beginning,
And the end and the beginning were always there
Before the beginning and after the end.
And all is always now."
 

- T.S.Eliot

"If one remains unable to abide in the unconditioned nature just as it is, and therefore develops attachment for mere intellectual understanding and experience, one should know that this attachment opens the door to demons".  p.90

“How did that original creation take place of the body as
infant? And even prior to its birth: How did the conception
happen? How did the infant come into being, without it asking
for it? Understand that. Understand thoroughly that drop of
stuff which eventually has developed into a body, and then you
will understand the whole mystery that you are not that. This
body that is now occupying a certain space, how much space did
it occupy upon its conception? And what was it then? If you
understand that, you will understand the mystery of the Self.”
 

- Nisargadatta Maharaj

The Wisdom of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

"Any person, any embodied person, with that knowledge "I am,"
carries on his activities in the world with the shackles of name
only. If he had no name, it would not be possible to carry on
with the activities. In that inner core, that Knowingness or
"I-am-ness," there are no shackles. Once it is understood that
"I am" is purely "I am," formless--and not that shackled body
form--then no liberation is called for. To be stabilized in that
Beingness, which has no name and form, that itself is liberation."
