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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
The knowledge ‘I am’ is God, if presently you are unable to understand it then just worship it.

Despite of all your efforts, even after doing an enormous amount of studies you are still unable to understand the ‘I am’, then, what to do? Don’t get disheartened, the Guru says there is a way out; to begin with realize that the ‘Jnana Marga’ (path of knowledge) is not for you. This realized, you must now resort to the ‘Bhakti Marga’ (the path of worship). And, what is to be worshipped? It is the knowledge ‘I am’, which is the God in you. Remember, both paths are complementary, knowledge leads to worship and worship leads to knowledge. It is only a question of individual disposition as to what suits you, but either way you will make it.
