Nisargadatta Gita - Message of Nisargadatta Maharaj
with commentary by 'Pradeep Apte'

<< previous quote     next quote >>
You have to understand that the I am is even before the arising of any words, thoughts or feelings.

The importance of the knowledge I am as the first or primordial principle should never be forgotten. For this conviction to grow stronger reversion to that moment is essential when you first came to know that you are or I am. When you do so the purity of the I am becomes very clear to you. You can also very clearly see that either way the I am is the first and the last thing that brought you in this world and now can take you out of it. Before anything else could be, words, thoughts or feelings the I am had to be there.
