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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Along with the knowledge I am appears the space and world. When the knowledge I am sets the world is liquidated.

Think hard, apply your mind and try to recollect the moment when the knowledge I am first appeared spontaneously and you came know that you are. If not that at least try to observe what happens when the next time you wake up from deep sleep. The I am, space and the world appear almost simultaneously, in one stroke, and then everything else takes over and this fact gets obliterated. What is it that holding this perception of yours? Is it not the I am? As long as the I am is there you would perceive the space and world, the I am setting both would disappear.
