An Advaita forum focusing on Realisation, enlightenment, non-duality, Real Love, peace, freedom, Your original nature, abiding naturally, the Oneness, the Noneness, and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj.

Here, there is nothing that is believed, so there is no one here who wants you to believe anything, either. Here, the invitation is to be free of all that you have been programmed, conditioned, acculturated, and domesticated to believe so that you can be free, period.

F.: When persons allow others to convince them to believe that the false concept of continuity is true, then they will begin to carry the same baggage that all such believers have carried for the last 5000-6000 years but which no humans carried for the millions of years prior to that:

• They will believe that they must live supernaturally or “spiritually” and will never even consider the option of living in a nisarga / natural fashion.

• As a result, they will never live freely and spontaneously (as the deer lives) but will live as sheep instead, never free and always following the crowd—a condition which will, in turn, leave them…

• …forever absorbed in efforts to please others, depriving them of contact with the natural urgings of the inner resource / the inner guru.

• They will be deprived of reason and logic, succumbing instead to being influenced by magical thinking.

• They will be inspired to “live by faith” (never understanding that the opposite of “faith” is not “a lack of faith” but is “the presence and use of critical reasoning skills”).

• The absence of critical reasoning skills will lead not only to conformity but also to being aligned with the learned-ignorance-thoughts-and-talk-and-behavior of the masses which, in turn, generates (a) the misery and suffering that entraps the masses…

• …and which also generates (b) a normalization of misery which leads to being dissociated from the misery-and-depression-producing effects of learned ignorance as well as inspiring…

• …(c) participation in the pathologicalization of both self and the masses, a pathology that is demonstrated consistently by all non-Realized persons and by the members of all modern institutions and cultures.

• They will live a life that is marked by expending effort and energy to prepare for another life, robbing them of the essence of this present relative existence and creating a focus on “later-ness” that deprives them of the joy of the “now-ness.”

• They will be pre-occupied with pleasing a god or gods, trying constantly to meet someone else's criteria regarding the “right” way to think, to feel, to talk, and to behave but forever failing, forever seeking forgiveness, forever trying again, forever failing again, ad infinitum.

• They will live with restrictions and limitations and boundaries, overly-concerned with rules and religious or spiritual laws and allowing other controlling persons with relative agendas, disguised as religious or spiritual agendas, to tell them what to do and not do.

• The result, therefore, is that they will never know real freedom at all.

To be free of a belief in body-mind-personality continuity, therefore, is a prerequisite for knowing freedom. Since there can be no joy if there is no freedom, then the knowing of joy, NOW, is also dependent upon being free of belief in the concept of continuity. So, to continue:

It was noted yesterday that not only is the concept of “body continuity post-manifestation” nothing more than total fiction but it was also noted that even the notion of body continuity now is false.

Consider: My daughter visited here for two nights last week. She will return on December 23rd for another two-night visit. She will not see the same body in December that she saw in November.

Skin is an ever-changing organ, totally replaced every month. What some persons take to be a body that they saw twenty-eight days ago is actually not the same body at all that they would see today. The skin the daughter saw then, she will never see again. The body she sees later this month will not be the body she saw then.

See? No continuity now, much less later.

Similarly, blood is an ever-changing and continuous stream of liquid material. No continuity.

Also, bone is a living entity, changing, growing, rebuilding. No continuity.

Energy levels are forever in a state of flux as energy comes and goes. No continuity.

Look at a set of pictures of an individual from age six to age eighteen and see the differences and know that only memories—erroneous memories—are behind any belief in continuity.

The false sense of continuity is really the crux of the matter that differentiates (1) all religious and spiritual teachings that deal with “life after” from (2) the Nisargan teacher’s message that deals with natural living (with natural beingness) now.

For those who cling to body-mind-personality identification, they will prefer organized religion or a spirituality-based program or some spirituality-based philosophy or some religion-based ideology or a religion-based cult.

Some will prefer the non-Nisargan versions of Advaita, Vedanta, Advaita Vedanta, neo-Advaita, neo-Vedanta, or psuedo-Advaita. Nisarga / natural beingness is far too simple and far too easy for the masses, and for most seekers, whose would-be-simple-existence has been made complex by a preference for the complications of doingness and religiosity and kindergarten spirituality. So it is.

Most, therefore, will be forever preoccupied with the rules and laws of some “Supreme Being(s),” with thinking and talking and behaving in the “right” way (a way that is defined by holy texts and redefined by leaders who apply their own spin and their “interpretations” of the meanings of the content of their texts), and with “eternal salvation” and attaining rewards.

Specifically, they will be engrossed in pleasing a god or gods so that they can receive rewards now, strength now, power now and rewards later; ultimately, their preoccupation will be with guaranteeing eternal reward and pleasure vs. eternal punishment and torture, and in that process they will preclude any change of knowing joy NOW. Please enter the silence of contemplation. (To be continued)

Non-Duality Paperback Books on

Five Free eBooks

Compliments of Andy Gugar, Jr.,
the following eBooks are available without charge for you or for friends:


The content of this eBook deals with one of the most common but erroneous beliefs that the non-Realized masses cling to and which they will fight about (and even kill over), namely, that there is a planet-wide duel going on between “the forces of good and evil” in the universe.

Either (1) the ancient view is spot on: that the "ills of the planet" are rooted in evil people, in people not being religious enough or spiritual enough, and are caused solely by bad morality; or, (2) the "ills of the planet" are rooted in ignorance, stupidity and insanity and "being good" or "being moral" does not put an end to ignorance, does not eliminate stupidity, and does not treat insanity in any way.


Comments regarding the free eBook entitled “THE VISION”:

“My thanks to you and Andy.” – Andrew “Mac” McMaster

“Thanks so much for the book! And, by the way, it is brilliant and the most effective pointing that you have done. It has served to help clear the remaining blockages.” – Stan Cross

“Greatly appreciate having “THE VISION” added to my Henderson resource library that is situated on the right side of my bed for easy access! Eternally grateful for what was received and what was given.” – Robert Rigby

“‘THE VISION’ is such a well-written, condensed version of the Nisarga Yoga approach to understanding and enjoying Reality that I feel it can serve as a must-read ‘meditation guide’ for all earnest seekers.” – Andy Gugar, Jr.

"Sapolsky, Maharaj, and the Non-Dual Teachings"

Dr. Robert Maurice Sapolsky is an American neuroendocrinologist; a professor of biology, neuroscience, and neurosurgery at Stanford University; a researcher; an author; and a Research Associate at the National Museums of Kenya.

There is much that a non-dualist or Advaitin or Nisargan can relate to by comparing and contrasting what Sapolsky reveals about the way certain troops of baboons live in Africa with the way that humans abide all around the globe.

This 152-page eBook catalogues the common, non-dual message shared by Sapolsky and Maharaj and reveals the ways that Sapolsky’s scientific research supports the non-dual pointers offered by Maharaj.


In “PART ONE” it will be seen that most persons on the planet are not seeking, and most will never seek, but for those who are seeking, most will face several obstacles:

In “PART TWO” of this book, it will be seen why many criticized Maharaj for “changing his message in his later talks.” It will be seen that the changes were not about changing the message per se as much as about changing his methodology as he experimented with one version of the Ultimate Medicine after another in order to try to find an effective means for addressing the Ultimate Sickness.

He tried a religious version of the Medicine, a Spiritual version of the Medicine, and finally settled on a version which addressed to Sickness at its core . . . at the mental and emotional level.


“Dangerous” is a term that can only apply during the relative existence, but of those who do commit suicide, for example, how many shoot themselves in the foot over and over until they “bleed out”? None. They shoot themselves in the head. Why? In order to try to stop the noise - to try to stop the chatter of a thousand monkeys – to stop the noisy mind which is the area that stores the ideas, notions, concepts, mind-stuff, etc. which drives them into the depths of insanity.

And what are those ideas, notions, concepts, etc. called, collectively? "Their beliefs." The irony? They are not their beliefs at all. They are the beliefs of “others” that were set in place via programming, conditioning, etc. and which persons then think are their own.

And what are those beliefs rooted in, and what reinforces those beliefs and convinces persons that they are sacred and worth fighting over and even sometimes worth dying for? Blind faith.

This 337-page eBook discusses those issues in detail.
