CATA | CHAPTER 4 | NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ

|| < : THE REALM OF INTELLECT : > ||

QUESTIONER : How did Maharaj get the name NISARGADATTA ?

MAHARAJ : At one time I was composing poems . Poems used to flow out of me and , in this flow , I just added NISARGADATTA . I was revelling in composing poems until my Guru cautioned me :

" You are enjoying composing these poems too much ; give them up ! "

What was my Guru driving at ? The objective was for me to merge in the Absolute state instead of reveling in my beingness .

This was the way I realized knowledge , not through mental manipulation . My Guru said , " This is so " , and for me , it was finished !

If you continue in the realm of intellect you will become entangled and lost in more and more concepts .
