An Introduction to Non-Duality is the first volume in the Conversations on the Philosophy and Practice of Non-Duality series from luminary teacher and author Rupert Spira. This book presents the most fundamental questions about non-duality commonly asked by spiritual seekers and people new to the teachings.

In our modern world, so marked by materialism and the disconnection that seems to stem from it, many of us are looking for a higher truth, one that speaks to what connects us rather than divides us. Some of the questions that may initially prompt our spiritual seeking include Who am I?" "Does God exist?" "What is the cause of suffering?" and "What is enlightenment?" If you've been on a spiritual path for some time, you may find yourself asking questions like "How do I stop my thoughts?" "What happens when the body dies?" "Why is there ignorance?" and "Do I have free will?" No matter where you are in your spiritual search, An Introduction to Non-Duality can help.

Starting with the introduction, this book places non-duality in its historical and philosophical context, describing both the "inward-facing" and "outward-facing" paths toward understanding and abiding as one's true nature. The first chapter begins with the most basic question-"What is non-duality?"-while successive chapters gradually broaden and deepen the discussion, always returning to the essential exploration of the nature of consciousness, but addressing even larger and more complex questions, such as "Is witnessing awareness separate from objects?" "What is the purpose of life?" and "Is world peace possible?"

With gentle guidance, writing that is accessible and direct, and clear dialogues, An Introduction to Non-Duality will satisfy and stimulate, helping you develop the confidence that can only come with a truly experiential exploration of these eternal questions, regardless of spiritual background. And with this book being only the first in the Conversations on the Philosophy and Practice of Non-Duality series, you'll find yourself looking forward to a new volume every year.

About teh Author:

From an early ageRupert Spira was deeply interested in the nature of reality. At the age of seventeen he learnt to meditate, and began a twenty-year period of study and practice in the classical Advaita Vedanta tradition under the guidance of Dr. Francis Roles and Shantananda Saraswati, the Shankaracharya of the north of India. During this time he immersed himself in the teachings of P. D. Ouspensky, Krishnamurti, Rumi, Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta and Robert Adams, until he met his teacher, Francis Lucille, in 1997. Francis introduced Rupert to the Direct Path teachings of Atmananda Krishnamenon, the Tantric tradition of Kashmir Shaivism (which he had received from his teacher, Jean Klein), and, more importantly, directly indicated to him the true nature of experience. Rupert lives in the UK and holds regular meetings and retreats in Europe and the USA. www.rupertspira.com.
