[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi]
By Self-Inquiry, you must arrive at that continuous experience of your Identity as being the Self, without a trace of Mis–identification. That Mis–identification is the consideration of yourself to be somehow mixed with what is actually not the Self. Eliminating Mis–identification is the “remembrance” of your Existence. Realizing your Self just as it is, you see quite clearly that you have been That always, & in the profoundest sense, that you have always known That. [Otherwise you may not have so much treasured your existence.]
The Individual, being nothing, knew nothing. His ignorance was not real, & Knowledge was not for him. Knowledge is inherent in the Self. It is the most interior & formless Knowledge & not a thought-produced knowledge. This is not a matter of thinking: “I am the Self” for no matter how much one would think something, it would not be stable.
The Knowledge of the Self is the Knowledge of the Eternal, the Unchanging, & the completely blissful. It is the Knowledge of Reality. This is the only true “perception”. To see anything else is to “see” the non–existent. That is Ignorance. Ignorance is composed of assumptions & super–impositions. Ignorance is the non–perception of Reality & the mis–perception of Reality, displaying itself as the non–seeing of Real, Non-Dual Existence & the hallucination of Duality or Multiplicity. The “knowing” of anything, be it gross or subtle, without the Knowledge of the Self, is simply diversified Ignorance, or diversified Illusion. In the Knowledge of the Reality of the Self, there remains neither Multiplicity (or Duality) nor anything else. One Formless Existence has no differentiation whatsoever.
