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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
The I am itself is the world, go to the source and find out how it appeared and when.

As your understanding of the knowledge I am becomes clear you realize that everything rests on the I am, it is the very basis of the world that you see around you. Prior to the arrival of the knowledge I am or during deep sleep you never knew or know about the existence of any world at all. The I am is at the very beginning, so you would have to revert back to it and not only revert but spend a considerable amount of time there, only then would you come to know as to how it came to be.
