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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Once the ‘I am’ goes what remains is the Original which is unconditioned, without attributes or identity, it is called ‘Parabrahma’, or the Absolute.

The departure of the ‘I am’, marks the end of all concepts or the illusion. You are no longer a conditioned individual but stand as the Original and the Original has no attributes or identity. How could the formless, nameless infinite have any attributes or identity? It is the very basis, all that we see with attributes or identity have only appeared on it which again are based on the fundamental primordial concept or illusion ‘I am’. Since the only means of communication we have is words or language so this infinite has been called the ‘Parabrahman’ or the Absolute.
