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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
The only ‘Sadhana’ (practice) is to think: I am not the body, but I am the formless, nameless knowledge ‘I am’ indwelling in this body.

Very clearly it is stated that there is only one ‘Sadhana’ (practice) to be done and that is to abide in the knowledge ‘I am’ indwelling in this body. This has to be done by bearing in mind three things, firstly that I am not the body, secondly this knowledge is formless and thirdly it is nameless or wordless. This can be done if you revert and go back to the moment when this feeling ‘I am’ first appeared on you. During that initial period that followed after its appearance the ‘I am’ was in its purest state and these three criteria applied to it. This done, you would not need to do anything more.
