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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
If you like it, take the I am as your prarabdha (destiny), become one with it, then you can transcend it.

Your destiny worries you; will I be successful in life? Will I become this or that? Will I have a serious illness? And the fear and manner of death is always lurking there in the background. But look what the Guru says which is something not only astonishing but rewarding as well, it puts you out of all this bundle of worries and apprehension. Why not take knowledge I am to be your destiny? I will become the I am only and nothing else that is my destiny. Abide in the I am only, meditate on the I am only, day in and day out it is the I am only, everywhere and at all times. What will happen on the acceptance of the I am as your destiny? You would transcend it and be out of the clutches of birth and death, which is the ultimate reward you can ever think of.
