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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
The sequence is ‘I am’- the witness – to the whole manifestation, it occurs simultaneously. The ‘I am’ subsiding, what remains? You are ‘That’.

The moment you wake up you have the feeling ‘I am a witness to the world’, it occurs so swiftly that you never give thought to the fact as to whom did the witnessing occur? Was it not something prior to the ‘I am’? Actually the ‘I am’ and space go together and you instantly see the world or this manifestation. After this your personality linked to your day to day life takes over and the ‘I am’ is also instantly lost and forgotten. As you revert and come back to the wordless ‘I am’ and abide in it for a reasonable amount of time, one day it subsides, then whatever remains, you are ‘That’.
