What the community says about I Am That
- "This book is an unbelievable life changer! This is my second copy, as the first book I ordered, I marked up so much with highlighter, pen, and pencil - I mean the whole book and so many times, that it ended up being another book inside the original. So with this copy, I have promised not to do that…I am not doing too well! One thing I would say to keep in mind, is that when Shri Nisargadatta Maharaj is answering a question that someone asks, he is directing His answer to the specific spiritual development of the questioner…not necessarily to the spiritual advancement, (or not), of the reader. So if you find that some parts of the book seem contradictory, keep in mind, they are not. This book is EXCELLENT! If you have found your way here to "I AM THAT", and are looking for answers, there is a reason you are now reading this post. Also, Nisargadatta DOES have a Living Master by the name of Shri Ramakant Maharaj. Nisargadatta Maharaj was Ramakant Maharaj's Master for nineteen years. If you are serious about meeting a Master from this powerful Lineage, and/or getting initiated into this powerful Lineage, please look into Shri Ramakant Maharaj's book, called "Selfless Self". This book is edited by Ann Shaw, and Master Ramakant Maharaj goes right for the Direct and Living Truth of this Lineage. I have personally been initiated by Shri Ramakant Maharaj, and cannot wait to be in His presence once again. Powerful teachings is an understatement!"

in What are the best recovery books"This book may be helpful if you are trying to recover from some other philosophy or belief system. This book appears to be based on either Buddhism - which concentrates on human suffering - or else on Hinduism, judging from the words and the names used in some of the reviews. There is very little description of what the book contains apart from how wise this author is, but the reviews contain enough information to help a person determine whether they are going to get something out of this or not."

in What are the best Self-help books"I've practiced Buddhism for nearly thirty years, and (to be honest) I don't read many spiritual books anymore. But this book is on my shelf. Sri Nisagadatta Mahara was the real deal. A very simple man who was deeply compassionate and simply inspirational. He reminds me of other teachers I've had, that have a strong ability to cut through pretense and distill wisdom to core truths. Read this book slowly and sit with it. If you can cut through your ego (and the pretenses of this world) you will be as free as he was throughout his life. That's the ultimate lesson of any spiritual practice - in my opinion. "

in What are the best spiritual books"I am that is a spiritual book, if you are looking for a higher awareness this book is wonderful. This book can be opened anywhere, read for a few minutes, and you will delight in the gentle, loving, human, profound and sometimes humourous responses of this simple sage, who took his own master's words to heart and went deeply into himself to realize that he was himself one with the absolute, and that beyond our ignorance of this fact, we are also that. A book to keep at your bedside and reread when needed, for a quick boost into reality, which as he says in so many ways, is itself beyond all words. Precious and priceless book."
