About 'Sailor' Bob Adamson
'Sailor' Bob Adamson was a direct student of Nisargadatta Maharaj.
Bob went to India and spent the whole of 1976 with Nisargadatta Maharaj, the great Indian Teacher and has been teaching in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, ever since.
Two books of his talks have been published and are available from Amazon. His teaching has spread far and wide, as a glance at the 'Recommended Books' and 'Links' lists will readily show.
A substantial proportion of the visitors who travel to Victoria to go to his talks come from overseas.
His talks (3 per week) are held in his own home about 6 km east of Melbourne - and the average attendance is in the 10 to 15 range.
The talks are very informal and normally start with a Bob talk and very soon there are questions, then answers with lots of involvement of the attendees and a lot of fun too.
Bob said that it normally takes people about 6 or 7 talks to get to grips with his teaching.
Bob is also available for private talks to personally help clear up any doubts or misunderstandings.
He usually has supplies of his books and CD compilations of his talks.
Bob (following the direct path of Nisargadatta) shows how you can directly 'see through' the illusion of the false self, which is the direct cause of suffering.
