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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Meditation means to have an objective or hold something, you are that something. Just being the being ‘I am’.

Meditation means to ponder or have your attention focused on some object, image or ‘mantra’. You do so till what you have held in meditation disappears or you can say you the ‘subject’ and the ‘object’ merge into a unity. When you ‘just be’ or are in the knowledge ‘I am’ only, you are both the subject and the object of meditation. It is the ‘being, meditating on ‘being’ and resultantly both cancel out each other and what remains ultimately is the Absolute.
