Rays of the Absolute (the Legacy of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj)
“Having understood the nature of consciousness you will also understand that you are not the consciousness.”
~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
In 2006 Stephen Wolinsky proposed the idea of traveling to India and filming Nisargadatta Mahara’s translators and disciples and explore what was the legacy Maharaj left behind in his hometown, Mumbai.
In 2007 Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo together with Stephen Wolinsky, Philip Safarik and Fred Good traveled to India to shoot this film.
The meeting with the old devotees was both illuminating as well as deeply touching.
Over the next seven and a half years, we all plugged away, going through mounds of material allowing this project to reach completion.
The film you are about to see cannot demonstrate the amount of work that went into this project….but let’s simply say that finally it is complete…J
Nisargadatta did not leave an ashram; he did not leave any teachings, nor successors. This movie is homage to him; a look at his unintended legacy from people that have been inspired by him more then words can express.
