Nisrgadatta Maharaj : from I Am That

Having gone beyond the I-am-the-body idea,
he had acquired a mental state so joyful, peaceful and glorious that everything appeared to be
worthless compared to it.

 He had attained self-realisation.
Uneducated though the Master is, his conversation is enlightened to an extraordinary degree.
Though born and brought up in poverty, he is the richest of the rich, for he has the limitless wealth
of perennial knowledge, compared to which the most fabulous treasures are mere tinsel. He is
warm-hearted and tender, shrewdly humorous, absolutely fearless and absolutely true -- inspiring,
guiding and supporting all who come to him.

Q: How do I get at it?[ self realization]
M: You need not get at it, for you are it. It will get at you, if you give it a chance. Let go your attachment to the unreal and the real will swiftly and smoothly step into its own. Stop imagining yourself being or doing this or that and the realization that you are the source and heart of all will dawn upon you. With this will come great love which is not choice or predilection, nor attachment, but a power which makes all things love-worthy and lovable.
