[The Teaching of Non-Duality has been adapted from Master Nome, disciple of Sri Ramana Maharshi. Sections appended below derive from Sri Ramana’s Teaching.]
If there remains the tendency to mis–identify with the Body, then, there are concerns brought in because of that Mis-identification. Because a Body dies, the “conqueror of death” cannot be the Body. Since the Senses perish, the “conqueror of death” cannot be anything perceivable by the Senses or a sensing entity. Since the Mind dies, the “conqueror of death” cannot be the Mind. If every thought dies, sooner or later, the “conqueror of death” cannot be something contained in thought. The “conqueror of death” cannot be a product of thinking, & it cannot be comprehended in thought. There must be something beyond, but what is entirely beyond is innermost. That is your own Existence, which is your own True Nature.
Those who are detached from the World & the Senses, who are not identified with the Body, who perceive the transient nature of all in the World, & who yearn for the direct experience of the Knowledge of Reality as it is should practice Self-Inquiry. View the World as transitory, as inert, & as a passing Dream. Never expect the World to provide what is already yours: Happiness, Identity, & Reality. To transcend the World is to remain blissful, at Peace always, & free in the Knowledge of the un–reality of the World & the Self’s freedom from that Illusion. This is the perception of Reality free of the Forms of Illusion. Absorption World–less Being, true perception, transcendence of the World, limitless Freedom unaffected by anything of the World, direct experience of indivisible Existence, & true experience beyond debate or doubt are for those who inquire to know the Self, which is the sole-existent Reality.
You are the Self, you are already That. You are ignorant of your blissful State. Ignorance supervenes & draws a Veil over the pure Self which is Bliss. Attempts are directed only to remove this Veil of Ignorance which is merely wrong knowledge. The wrong knowledge is the false
Mis-identification of the Self with the Body & the Mind. This false Mis-identification must go & then the Self alone remains.
