Since I Am That was released in 1973, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, along with Sri Ramana Maharshi, has been recognized as one of the 20th Century's most profound voices of Advaita Vedanta. The Lost Satsang depicts Maharaj in the most authetic way and directly transmits the overwhelming power of this remarkable sage.
This film was given to us by S.K. Mullarpattan, the translator you will see in the film, who was Maharaj's primary translator from 1976 to 1981. Contained in this video are one and a half hours of questions and responses taking place between Maharaj and some of his devotees. The footage was taken from an old, low quality, VHS tape. The camera stays on Nisargadatta even when questions are asked providing us with a chance to observe his expressions for most of the time. We have not been able to identify the people who have created this amazing document, but we are grateful and extremely thankful for their effort. To accurately translate this important historical document, we used three different translations, the main one from Mohan Gaitonde, (Maharaj's part time evening translator). The "Lost Satsang" is now fully subtitled in English while the original video material has not been edited. Neti Neti Films is dedicated to making Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj's teachings available to the world. With this as its mission, all the profits from this film will go to producing new films and audio CDs on Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj and his teachings. Neti Neti Films would like to thank you all for your support in this ongoing endeavor.http://netinetifilms.com/films-satsang.shtml
