REALIZING NON–DUAL LIBERATION, ENLIGHTENMENT BY SELF-INQUIRY – PT 193
[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.]
It does not make a difference if it is in the Past or the Future or the Present. It is still just a Sense Perception. By “World” is meant the entire, Objective sphere of experience, including the billions of years of Time, the countless light years of Space, all the matter, all the motion of that matter, indeed all of it, however perceived in whatever manner, by ever so many beings who are known in their Multiplicity through your Senses.
[when asked about his state & experience]
If the eyes are closed, it is nirvikalpa samadhi.
If open, it is (though differentiated, still in absolute repose) savikalpa samadhi.
The ever-present state is the Natural State sahaja (sahaja nirvikalpa samadhi).
Without the Hearer there cannot be hearing. Without the Seer there cannot be vision. The Subject & Object appear only after the Mind has arisen. The Mind comprises them.
Memory & forgetfulness are located in the Mind (chitta).
