Here’s A Thought

The Zoo

Sri Nisargadatta: The inner Guru
is not committed to non-violence.
He can be quite violent at times,
to the point of destroying
the obtuse or perverted personality.
Questioner: Has one to be afraid
of his own self?
Sri Nisargadatta: Not afraid,
for the self means well.
But it must be taken seriously.
It calls for attention and obedience;
when it is not listened to,
it turns from persuasion
to compulsion.

Sri Nisargadatta
in “I Am That”
