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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
That ‘Brahman’ or ‘I am’ state alone embraces everything and is all the manifestation. You have to forget everything and merge with ‘Brahman’.

Whatever you see or feel has the ‘I am’ as its basis, the ‘I am’ and ‘Brahman’ are the same. All is the creation of the ‘I am’ or ‘Brahman’ state, this you can also say from your own experience. Prior to the arrival of the ‘I am’, or in the deep sleep state, did you know of your existence or the world and the rest? It was only with the rising of the ‘I am’ that space came which engulfs everything. As a part of the ‘Sadhana’ (practice) you have to forget everything, that is all externalities and become one with the ‘Brahman’.
