NMT (No-Me Teaching) new series 107:
Ribhu Gita (Tamil) Ch 29:
(3) As the natural Reality of the Non-Dual Supreme remains undestroyed. It is, indeed, the Reality. as this world of Duality has no intrinsic reality. All this is only illusory. This illusoriness, when inquired into, is indeed, the Supreme Brahman. which is the Substratum. It is that Brahman. which eternally endures, that is your own pure, True Nature.
(4) When the reality of the imaginary Snake is thoroughly inquired into. that reality is only the Substratum of the Snake-form, namely, the reality of the Rope, and not the reality of a Snake. Likewise upon deep Inquiry, the reality of the World is realized to be the only Reality of Brahman, the Substratum, it is only that Brahman, which is ever the Reality. That is your own Non-Dual, True Nature.
(5) Just as, on Inquiry, there is not a trace of intrinsic reality. apart from your own reality of the World that appeared in the imagination of your Dream, so there is no intrinsic reality apart from your own Reality, for the World in your Waking State, which is also an Illusion. Brahman, which is the only Reality, without-a-2nd, is similarly your True Nature.
(6) The Body, the Senses, the Life, the confounded Mind, the Intellect, the Ego, the thoughts, The primal Ignorance about all of these, and various seeming entities which seem differentiated are all, upon Inquiry realized to be only the one Reality, which is the Supreme Brahman. Only that Brahman, the one Supreme Reality, is ever your true Nature.
[selections based on Master Nome’s Self-Knowledge]
There is the Teaching, which when received, meditated upon, & experienced, results in the destruction of all Delusion & all Illusion, & in the Realization of the Self. It is what unfailingly puts an end to all the imagined Bondage. It is intended for those who know the value of Detachment & the importance of Self-Realization, & who are endowed with an inward-turned Mind. It is the quintessence of Advaita Vedanta. It is the Maharshi’s Teaching. This Teaching is reiterated here. To receive this Teaching & to come to know it is the highest blessing. It is the dawn of Knowledge. To meditate on this teaching, applying one’s own ever to awaken from the illusion of Duality, & thus gain clarity in Knowledge, is to be in the sublime state of Grace. To merge with its meaning is samadhi, which is the direct experience of absorption in Knowledge. To be so absorbed in it that it is one’s very Identity & all possibility of Duality is a removed, the state in which Knowledge & Being are One, & the same, this is Self-Realization.
In Truth, Reality is comprehended by Reality itself. This is Self–Knowledge. In the Agama texts, this is referred to as all–comprehensive Knowledge. It is so, not because it is an examination of the endless details of illusory, objective things or of the wide variety of practices & states of Mind, but because of its fixed gaze upon the infinite, which is pure Consciousness & Being, which is the sole existing Reality. It is Knowledge of the Absolute Self, which is Reality, with 1-without-a-2nd, & apart from which there is nothing else.
In Non-Duality, meditation may be regarded as by the Self, for there is no other knower, & upon the Self, as there is no object of meditation. In meditation upon Self–Knowledge, one cannot stand apart from the self to contemplated. Oneness, identity would being, is the essence of the meditation. This is timeless knowledge that is thought–transcendent. Thoughts are not real, & they cannot reveal what is Real. Not retaining any idea or concept by inquiring into oneself, there is entrance into Self–Knowledge. Therefore, the only intent upon the Supreme State, meditates with a singular undistracted focus on Truth, abandons meandering Delusions for the sake of what is Sacred, for the sake of Self–Realization, & is absorbed in that which is blissful, unforgettable, illimitable, indivisible, & beyond the Body, Mind, & Ego. That is formless Being.
