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.: Who has not heard persons say: “I changed my mind”? The “mind” is ever-changing, so there is no continuity in terms of any given state that it might be in from one instant to the next.

For example, what persons think they “love,” they will eventually think they hate; what they think they believe today, they can abandon belief in tomorrow; what they are so sure of at one age they can be totally unsure of at another:

“I should marry her” is often followed a few days later by, “Deep down inside, I know that I really don’t want to spend a lifetime with her.”

"I should leave him" will often be followed by "No wait, I should stay with him."

Fifty to sixty percent of the time, “Until death do us part” becomes “I think I’m going to die if I don’t get away from him/her.”

“He is a great lover” more often than not becomes “My gosh, he’s a sex maniac!”

“This is a dream job” almost always becomes, at some later point, “What a nightmare this job has turned out to be.”

“He has a great work ethic” often becomes “He’s an emotionally-unavailable workaholic!”

And, as one site visitor pointed out yesterday at a place of employment that receives contracts from the Department of “Defense,” the “minds” of many there changed from

“What a wimp this president is…he can’t make a decision about sending more troops or not and about escalating the war or not”

to this (after a speech in which he announced a decision to send more troops and to escalate):

“You know, he actually sounded very presidential last night.”

Maharaj noted that such constant instability and fluctuations leads to a sequence in “relationships” that persons repeat over and over, shifting from one ego-state to another, from one persona to another, moving from "stranger" to "acquaintance" to "friend" to "lover" to "fiancé / fiancée" to "spouse" to "enemy" to "mortal enemy."

The “mind” has no continuity, shifting from views about loss to perceptions of emolument; from “feeling upbeat” to “feeling down”; or from thinking people "are really good at heart" to hating all of humanity.

More perverse than the notion that mind continuity is happening now, however, is the nonsensical belief that there can be mind continuity later…and forever. The belief that a “mind” can survive intact post-manifestation is one of the more delusional of all of the delusions dreamed up by persons.

The notion that a mind can exist after a body rots away or is burned shows the degree to which programmed persons can be out of touch with reality. The “mind” only lasts as long as the parts of the brain in which it stores and retrieves its content lasts. Maharaj said that science would advance someday to the point that it will prove the validity of all of these teachings. Here's the science in this case:

In the left hemisphere of the cerebral cortex, memories are stored in language format. In the right hemisphere, memories are stored in spatial, auditory, and visual modes. The temporal lobe deals with information retrieval. If, within the limbic system, the amygdala malfunctions, then a loss of recent memory can happen.

It can be seen from those facts that the brain functions not unlike the computer on which these words are being typed and stored and not unlike the computer on which the words are retrieved and read by site visitors. Data is stored and data is recalled.

That said, who could possibly believe anyone who tells them that (A) this computer can be burned until there is nothing left but the original elements from which it was made but (B) it can still store data and you can still retrieve data by using it?

Who could possibly believe anyone who tells them that (C) this computer can be exposed to the elements and allowed to rust away and rot away until there is nothing left but the original elements from which it was made but (D) it can still store data and you can still retrieve data by using it?

How truly naïve one would be to accept such statements as truth. Yet billions of persons on the planet believe concepts that are no different from the nonsensical ideas set forth in those two scenarios.

Persons actually believe (1) that a brain can rot away or be burned; (2) that the cerebral cortex and its hemispheres can return in an ash-to-ash and dust-to-dust manner to the universal pool of elements;

(3) that the temporal lobe and the limbic system and the amygdala can fade away when the brain no longer exists; but (4) that they—in one personal form or another—will be called before a god post-manifestation to…

…(A) be held accountable for all of the sins (a.k.a., “transgressions”) for which they did not ask forgiveness during the manifestation, and (B) to remember every sin ever committed during the manifestation,

and (C) to recall from memory everything about the manifestation, and (D) to know everyone they knew during the manifestation and (E) to recognize them when they all reunite after what they call “death” and "judgment."

They actually believe that the subjective and fictional content that made up what they called “their minds” can still be recalled even though the elemental brain in which that subjective and fictional content was stored, and from which it was recalled, no longer exists.

They actually believe that a “mind” can continue to function post-manifestation in the same manner in which it functioned during the relative existence, even after the elemental brain no longer exists, and they believe that because they never question the authority figures who tell them what they should believe.

They would not believe that a burned or rusted and rotted out computer can continue to function as it did prior to burning or decomposing; they would not believe that a shattered glass can still hold water; they would not believe that they can continue to live in a house that has burned to the ground.

Why? Because they have not been told those things by one whom they think to be holy, by one who has assumed a most grandiose role and claims to be “God’s Representative on Earth,” or by one whose words they refuse to question because that person chose an occupation that includes a pulpit from which other claims (and equally audacious assertions) can be made.

As for the few on the planet who are not trapped in the effects of the programming and conditioning that have marked the last 5000-6000 years among humans, it is those few alone that have Realized and that know there is no continuity of a “mind” now and there will be no continuity of a “mind” later.

It is those few who understand that there is no birth so there can be no rebirth; that there are no personal beings who are living and dying; that there is no post-manifestation beingness that will be pleasured by rewards or tortured by punishments; and that if bliss and joy are to be known, they can only be known 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.
