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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Identify yourself with the highest principle in you which is the knowledge ‘I am’. This will elevate you to the status of ‘Brihaspati’ – the guru of gods.

Become completely one with the indwelling knowledge ‘I am’, it is the highest possible principle in you. First you must be able to very clearly see that there something called the knowledge ‘I am’ in you, that is, you have not only to spot it but understand it in its totality. Then comes the ‘Sadhana’ (practice) where you begin abiding in the ‘I am’ and this, in its acute phase, results in your becoming one with the ‘I am’ and then only the ‘I am’ remains and nothing else. The Guru says that this will elevate you to the highest possible status that he calls ‘Brihaspati’ which means the greatest Guru, the Guru of Gods.
