This book can be read as a "Stand-Alone eBook" or as a "Companion Piece" or "Follow-Up" to be read after "When Only Three Hours of Manifestation Remain."
The focus here is on the content of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj's final talks before taking mahasamadhi. Included at the end of the book are the thirty-four quotations from Maharaj that are the most ignored (or that are the most irritating to some "seekers").
Maharaj's talks during the last thirteen months of the manifestation were few in number and brief in delivery. Whereas he usually conducted often-lengthy sessions two times per day for decades prior to the illness that came at the end, fewer than eighty talks were documented during the period of the final three-hundred-and-ninety-five days during which he accepted visitors only intermittently and, obviously, infrequently.
His last seventy days were spent primarily in silence. Both of those facts were a result of the excruciating pain being generated by the cancer that was taking its agonizing toll on the plant-food, elemental body.
During those final talks, he discussed the origins of relative problems; the maya; the nature of Consciousness / Awareness; the falsity of things "personal"; what the relative should look like post-Realization; the uselessness of knowledge (a.k.a., "learned ignorance";
how to stabilizing in Reality and understand Truth; the Ultimate Sickness and its treatment; transcending identification; ending bondage; the nothingness; freedom and being unconcerned; and abiding with dignity and taking mahasamadhi with dignity.
What is true for the book "When Only Three Hours of Manifestation Remain" is also true for this book:
"THE FINAL FIFTEEN TOPICS DISCUSSED BY SRI NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ" is not necessarily for all readers even if they are interested in non-duality or Nisarga Yoga. Its contents are especially not for those who are seeking a means by which they can reinforce or enhance a religious role or a spiritual role that has been assumed because the final talks offered by Maharaj suggested that both of those roles should be transitioned.
This book is not for those who believe that Truth is found in special or holy or religious or spiritual texts, any more than Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj's later talks were for persons interested in religious or spiritual concepts.
During his last years, he said of the book "I AM THAT": "That book and whatever was expounded at that time was only relevant for that period. I am speaking differently today." He said, now I am "emphasizing different aspects."
Similarly, the talks in this book can also be considered among Maharaj's "later talks," so they are not for everyone.
Seekers cannot begin with the "end pointers" in this volume any more than they can begin with the pointers in the companion book. Seekers must find information that is "level-appropriate," custom-fit for them at the exact place wherever they might be on "the path."
At the end of the book, the reader will find "the thirty-six quotations from Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj which many choose to ignore." Those, too, are only for those seekers that have advanced far along "the path."
The pointers in Maharaj's final talks which are presented in this book are for those that are open to that which is beyond any of the religious or spiritual pointers that he offered early and are only for those seeking the "final understanding" that he offered in the days prior to his taking mahasamadhi.
