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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Stabilize in the ‘Bindu’ (Point) ‘I am’ and transcend it. ‘Bindu’ means without duality (Bin=without, Du=two).

It is the ‘I am’ again, it has been given a new name for a better understanding. It has been called the ‘Bindu’ (point) which when split into two words ‘Bin’ and ‘Du’ means, without duality. How is this so? As the focus of your meditation on the ‘I am’ or when the knowledge ‘I am’ meditates on itself for a prolonged period, a stage comes when it is only the ‘I am’ everywhere. When this happens, there is nothing else but the ‘I am’, it is a non-dual state. This ‘Bindu’ (point) is located nowhere yet is everywhere, it is there indwelling in you, find it and get stabilized in it.
