Here below are some select illuminating quotes that I have picked from the Non-dual tradition. These quotes and excerpts are from Adi Shankara, Rupert Spira, Nisargadatta Maharaj.

“The treasure I have found cannot be described in words, the mind cannot conceive of it.”
Adi Shankara

“Love is the experience that others are not others. Beauty is the experience that objects are not objects.”
Rupert Spira

“The consciousness in you and the consciousness in me, apparently two, really one, seek unity and that is love.”
Nisargadatta Maharaj

“Atman is an ever-present Reality. Yet, because of ignorance it is not realised. On the destruction of ignorance Atman is realised.”
Adi Shankara

“We take that which is unreal to be real and that which is real to be unreal.”
Rupert Spira

“To deal with things knowledge of things is needed. To deal with people, you need insight, sympathy. To deal with yourself, you need nothing. Be what you are, a conscious being and don’t stray away from yourself.”
Nisargadatta Maharaj

“However, love, peace and happiness are inherent in the knowing of our own being. In fact, they are the knowing of being. They are simply other names for our self.”
Rupert Spira

“Each thing tends to move towards its own nature. I always desire happiness which is my true nature. My nature is never a burden to me. Happiness is never a burden to me, whilst sorrow is.”
Adi Shankara

”As you watch your mind, you discover your self as the watcher. When you stand motionless, only watching, you discover your self as the light behind the watcher. The source of light is dark, unknown is the source of knowledge. That source alone is. Go back to that source and abide there.”
Nisargadatta Maharaj
