There is an ancient zen saying about clearing the cup or mind of its content before studying anything. Do so and study the nondual philosophy, or else you will keep on misinterpreting it as per your conditioning and wasting your time here.

It requires an unconditioned mind to experience nonduality or advaita, and all conditioned beliefs and experiences will only serve to act as mental filters for the mind leading to misinterpretation and complication of something which is actually very simple and uncomplicated.


This advaita philosophy sounds like an interesting theory. A bit dogmatic in its requirements perhaps, but interesting nonetheless.
