I first read about Ajja in 2003, in Andrew Cohen’s magazine “What Is Enlightenment”.I found Ajja’s story very fascinating and intriguing. Ajja was a wealthy
Listen To Nisargadatta Maharaj’s Talks Audio MP3
I am happy to share the restored & cleaned audio talks & MP3 of Nisargadatta Maharaj with everyone. I would like to thank Ms. Vanaja for recording these talks. She carried her tape recorder and dutifully recorded Nisargadatta Maharaj’s talks every day. She has recorded over 300 cassette tapes.
I was introduced to her in 2005 by my friend Aj (not his real name, he wants to be anonymous), who has great love and respect for Maharaj. Aj and Ms.Vanaja had been trying to digitize and restore Maharaj’s old tapes for some months. Aj visited a few audio studios in Mumbai, however none of them wanted to undertake the tedious task or their asking price was very high.
When Aj mentioned the tapes to me I at once got involved in the process of restoring the tapes. Since I am a sound engineer and specialize in audio restoration and digitization, I had the technical expertise to make sure the restoration was carried out in a professional manner.
Ms Vanaja (who has always been the financier for M’s work) helped us procure all necessary equipment’s and I set up the system wherein she could digitize the audio. Once digitized, the audio was sent to me for restoring and cleaning. But there was only so much Vanaja Aunty could do on her own to digitize the tapes.
That is when Mr Ashank Desai, who was very passionate about Nisargadatta Maharaj, stepped in. In 2012, he generously donated the amount of money needed for hiring a professional studio to get all the 300 tapes digitized. With the money on board, I got in touch with an amazing sound engineer, whose work ethics I trusted. It was a slow process, as many of the tapes had issues. We finally got all the tapes digitized by the end of 2014. I Thank Mr Ashank Desai for all his kind help and donations.
But the work of cleaning and digitally remastering the tapes still remains. I have restored a few of his talks, and even though I would love to clean all this talks, I had a bad ear infection in 2016 and sadly had to quit working as a sound engineer.
The tapes are free for listening and sharing. Please do not sell them or use them for commercial purposes. All those involved in the digitization and restoring are doing it out of love without any monetary benefit. I am sure you will respect Maharaj’s work and help spread it across the globe.
