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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
You want me to say something about the post-I am- manifestation, while I am driving you to the pre-I am- Absolute.

Just see how clear the Gurus intentions are, his sole concern is to drive you towards the Absolute which he says is prior to the I am. What can he say about the post- I am- manifestation? Since you dont understand the state prior to your being or rather you have never known it or given thought to it, you urge him to say something that you know. You know a lot about the post-I am- manifestation, you are comfortable with it, hence you would like to hear something in that domain only and not outside it. But now, put aside all that is post-I am and try to focus on what the Guru is saying which is about the pre-I am or the Absolute.
