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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The ‘I am’ is the awareness before thoughts, it cannot be put into words; you have to ‘just be’.

When the knowledge ‘I am’ dawned on you, you knew no words or language, it was an awareness without or before thoughts. Presently, when we are using words for communication, it should be quite obvious that words cannot be used to describe the wordless state! It can be hinted towards, or can be pointed out, but its real understanding would only come by being it, so do away with words and ‘just be’, then see what happens.
