DIMENSIONLESS MAP FOR SELF-REALIZATION | PRADEEP APTE
|| BASED ON WISDOM TEACHINGS OF SRI NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ | DIM 3449x5249 ||
Use this map as a study aid while reading I AM THAT .
This Map for Self-Realization can be seen to contain several " Themes or routes for Transcendence " that have been color coded .
THE THEMES OR ROUTES FOR TRANSCENDENCE :
1 . The RED or Main theme :
From Personality to Person to Presence to Absence to Absence of Absence .
2 . The GREEN or States of Consciousness theme :
From the Awake state to Dream to Deep Sleep to " The Fourth " to " Beyond the Fourth " .
3 . The BLUE or Speech theme :
From the Spoken Word to Tangible Word to Intangible Word to Source Word to No Word .
4 . The BROWN-YELLOW or Being theme :
From Being Knowing Doing to Being Knowing to Being to Non-Being .
5 . The PINK or Triad theme :
From Mind ( Attachment mode ) to Self ( Detachment mode ) to Spirit ( Transcendence mode ) .
6 . The BROWN or Buddha theme :
Gone ( awake transcended ) , Gone ( dream transcended ) , Gone beyond ( deep sleep transcended ) , Gone Altogether beyond ( the fourth transcended ) Oh ! What an awakening , All hail ! ( From the heart sutra ) .
One may observe that the routes or themes run almost parallel with the Main RED theme and all end up from illusion to reality in The Absolute .
The map can be extremely useful when consulted while reading along with the book I AM THAT and serves the purpose of getting the fundamentals right .
The next would be the meditation on " I Am " or the different themes or the practice ( the sadhana ) and finally , if you get it right till there , would be the dropping off ( which occur automatically ) of the entire concept as it was unreal anyway !
