About Bob Adamson

Sailor Bob Adamson is renowned for the simplicity, directness and clarity of his teaching, and speaks with a warmth and compassion that goes straight to the heart. His message is simply that you are already That, and the understanding is available for all who truly care to look.

Bob’s own spiritual search ended in 1976 in the presence of his final teacher Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (I Am That) and for several decades now, has been sharing this understanding with all who come to listen. Bob draws people from around the world to his meetings in Melbourne, Australia, and his influence on the contemporary expression of Non-Duality is widely recognised.

“Sailor Bob Adamson pointed out very directly that I was not the limited person I had assumed myself to be. To this day, I marvel at the clarity, effectiveness and thoroughness of Bob’s pointers. I am deeply touched by the great kindness and warmth of heart he shares with those who seek his guidance. Bob’s impact on the world of non-dual spirituality has been immense and continues to grow.”

– John Wheeler

“What Bob refers to as the understanding is not something that is rare – it is the clear seeing that is available to all who care to really look. Bob invites those who come to listen to really see and get a taste of their true nature. He is keen to point out that it is not just for the few, it’s for everyone. In the seeing that he speaks about, the illusory nature of what had been taken as the real simply loses its bind and there is nothing more to do. For those who do truly see, the search ends and there is a profound sense of what can only be described as wellbeing – a total freedom from all psychological bondage.”

– Kalyani Lawry

“Bob offers the ever-present invitation to see every thing as That. The apparent separate entity, the me, the I, the ego, call it what you like, can then be seen for what it is – a thought-up entity without any independent existence. The absurdity of a thought-up me thinking it is running the show, reveals itself for what it is.”

– Peter Lawry

“This guy is able to transmit the knowledge that he’s got, which is – what you are seeking you already are. The daily life here has being utterly re-ordered. Most of the time it’s about functioning and awareness and a new awareness of subtleties. As Bob says, “Emotions are just continuity of thought and problems are continuity of thought as well.” Therefore any (potential) problems have lost the capability of being construed as problems, and that pointing is the gift this man has to offer and he does it humbly without spiritual convolution, hypocrisy or dogma. This is the closest I can come to explaining the impact this knowledge is having on my life.”

– John Lindland

“There are many things that could be said about Bob’s teaching but it speaks most clearly for itself. It can be shocking in its directness and yet there is a warmth to it- a sense of coming home. There is no emphasis on any conceptual notions about some future time when things will “become” better. It is always about being- this moment of presence awareness – the fact of your own being.”
