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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The beginning and the end of knowledge is the I am, be attentive to the I am, once you understand it, you are apart from it.

Whatever maybe the volume of knowledge it has to begin with the primary knowledge or concept I am. The I am is the one, and then two, three, four and so forth the structural labyrinth of knowledge builds. You have to revert, retrace out the steps in the maze and when you do so correctly you will end up at the I am. Give all your attention to this I am, by and by you shall come to understand it and all its implications as well. The clearer is your understanding of the I am the more distinctly apart you are from it.
