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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
When you meditate on the knowledge I am, how can there be any questions at this point? As it is the beginning of knowledge.

Do you or do you not always have some question or the other or some doubt at the back of your mind when you indulge in any activity? Quite the same happens when you enter the field of spirituality and begin meditation. The biggest question which usually lingers in the background is Is this all going to work or am I wasting time? But what happens when you meditate on the knowledge I am as prescribed? How can there be any question now? If you have correctly understood the I am you would see that it is the very beginning of knowledge, the I am in its utmost purity. And, as a part of the practice you have to abide in the I am and not move from it. If a question arises you can be lest assured that you have moved or are no longer abiding in the I am. In fact, this is a very useful means of assessing your progress in the Sadhana (practice), the objective is to arrive at a stage when there no questions arising anymore.
