As is your concept, so will you see.
If you go beyond the source you will find that there exists nothing.
Spiritual science is the science where self is considered to first and foremost.
Birth: Shri Sadguru Sri Siddharameshwar Maharaj was born in 1888 in the village Pathri, Solapur, India.
Realization: In the year 1920 when Sri Siddharameshwar Maharaj was on the tour of popularizing his Master’s teachings, he got the idea that one should go beyond meditation because meditation is an initial stage to attain Final Reality. He decided to set on that arduous path on his own .He started his meditation in Bijapur on the raised platform like a minaret (upli buruj) sitting over an old gun and he meditated for nine months without a break. Since his Master had taught him only meditation there was no alternative for him to find out the way to attain the Final Reality without meditation. His efforts were finally rewarded and his Master blessed him. He then explained that one can achieve the Final Reality via Vihangam Marg (the bird’s way) that is by thinking Ignorance has come by hearing over generations. Only by hearing and practicing from the teachings of the Master and thinking over it, just like the bird flies from one tree to another, one can attain Final Reality very fast.
Death: Sri Siddharameshwar Maharaj passed away on 9th November, 1936, in Bombay.
Teaching Style: Shri Siddharameshwar Maharaj preached step by step in a very simple language how to attain Final Reality during the years 1925 to 1936.
He preached in a very simple, lucid and sane language, by giving examples from daily life. He was of the opinion that Parmarth — understanding of Final Reality should be taught in a very simple language without using high sounding or bombastic words, to make the people understand the Ultimate Reality.
Fame: Sri Siddharameshwar Maharaj was one of the head gurus of the Inchegeri Sampradaya founded by his guru Shri Bhauseheb Maharaj, which is a branch of the Navnath Sampradaya, the ‘Nine Masters’ tradition in India. He is most well known as being the Guru of Advaita Vedanta teachers Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Sri Ranjit Maharaj, and Sri Kadsiddheshwar Maharaj.
Legacy: He studied with his guru ‘Shri Bahausaheb Maharaj’ whose goal was to educate people on “Final Reality” or “The Eternal Truth”. He was one of the contemporaries of Sri Ramana Maharshi. Dozens of his disciples became self-realized through his clear and lucid teaching.
“When the objective knowledge comes to an end, the Seer does not survive as a Seer. At that moment, the pride of the `I’ (ego) just melts away.”
“As long as objects are taken to truly exist, until then only the seer remains. As the being is conceptual, so also is the seer. If you call an object a chair, it is a chair; if you call it wood, it is wood. If you call the all as Brahman, then the all is Brahman. If you call it the world, it is the world. All objects depend on the concept of the seer. But Brahman is beyond concept and no concept can conceive it.”
“The worldly illusion, Samsara, is a dream within a dream. Having understood this, indeed you have thought of what is the Real Truth and what is not.”
“Brahman is sans quality and sans shape. Brahman is unattached, Brahma is without change. It has no limits, that is what the sages say.”
“Thought of Liberation and bondage is present only during the state of Ignorance. The Original Nature is self-evident. It is neither bound nor liberated.”
“One who is Qualityless was recognized in his nature which is without quality. The One who was meaningful got His own meaning. ”
“Only those who make the Meaningful gets Its own meaning deserve praise. They lifted themselves and showed the path to next generations.”
