DIMENSIONLESS MAP FOR SELF-REALIZATION | PRADEEP APTE

|| BASED ON WISDOM TEACHINGS OF SRI NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ | DIM 3449x5249 ||

Use this map as a study aid while reading I AM THAT .
 
This Map for Self-Realization can be seen to contain several " Themes or routes for Transcendence " that have been color coded .


THE THEMES OR ROUTES FOR TRANSCENDENCE :

1 . The RED or Main theme :

From Personality to Person to Presence to Absence to Absence of Absence .

2 . The GREEN or States of Consciousness theme :

From the Awake state to Dream to Deep Sleep to " The Fourth " to " Beyond the Fourth " .

3 . The BLUE or Speech theme :

From the Spoken Word to Tangible Word to Intangible Word to Source Word to No Word .

4 . The BROWN-YELLOW or Being theme :

From Being Knowing Doing to Being Knowing to Being to Non-Being .

5 . The PINK or Triad theme :

From Mind ( Attachment mode ) to Self ( Detachment mode ) to Spirit ( Transcendence mode ) .

6 . The BROWN or Buddha theme :

Gone ( awake transcended ) , Gone ( dream transcended ) , Gone beyond ( deep sleep transcended ) , Gone Altogether beyond ( the fourth transcended ) Oh ! What an awakening , All hail ! ( From the heart sutra ) .


One may observe that the routes or themes run almost parallel with the Main RED theme and all end up from illusion to reality in The Absolute .

The map can be extremely useful when consulted while reading along with the book I AM THAT and serves the purpose of getting the fundamentals right .

The next would be the meditation on " I Am " or the different themes or the practice ( the sadhana ) and finally , if you get it right till there , would be the dropping off ( which occur automatically ) of the entire concept as it was unreal anyway !
