Essential Writings on Nonduality
This book compiles the most lively expressions of nonduality, which are the understanding that existence is one undivided whole and that the daily distinctions we make within this unity are useful, but not ultimately true. The book conveys in a nonacademic style what nonduality itself is, including lively, challenging, diverse passages from the major traditions of Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, Christianity, Sufism, Judaism, Taoism, and Native American Tradition. You'll also read about the nondual perspectives of psychotherapy, art, education, and the movie The Matrix. The core of the book is two chapters on the teachings of Ramana Maharshi, which were edited specifically for this work by David Godman and approved by Sri Ramanasramam. Covering many traditions and backgrounds, this collection is an excellent foundation for a study of nonduality.
