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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
This knowledge I am has dawned on you, thereafter witnessing began. That One to whom the witnessing takes place is separate from the witnessed.

This knowledge I am has come uncalled, it has appeared or dawned on you without your asking for it. It came very spontaneously and swiftly, and before even you could do anything the witnessing of space began. The I am and space came together, you saw and felt the body and started identifying the I am with it. In the process of reverting you ponder on the question To whom is the witnessing taking place? or On whom did this I am appear? Then you realize that the One who witnesses has to stand apart from the witnessed, and that One has been around forever.
