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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
When you abide for a sufficiently long time in the I am, the knowledge I am itself will make everything clear to you. No external knowledge will be necessary.

To begin with the I am has to be completely understood and retraced back to its pure state when you were not aware of the body. At that time the I am was wordless and formless and purely a feeling that you are. Having caught the I am you have now to abide in it for a sufficiently long time, this reversion and abidance will have to be done repeatedly. In the process the knowledge I am will get friendly with you and reveal its secret, and then no external knowledge would be required.
