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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Hammer it into yourself that the ‘I am’ or ‘beingness’ is the parent of the entire manifestation, then the ‘I am’ itself will help you stabilize in the ‘I am’.

A process of reversion has to be undertaken in order to understand and believe that the ‘I am’ or ‘beingness’ is the root of the entire manifestation. Reversion means to back to that moment when you first came to know that ‘you are’, before this did you anything about the manifested world that you see? It was non-existent for you. Quite similarly in deep sleep when the ‘I am’ is held in abeyance the world is non-existent for you. Come ‘I am’ and comes this entire manifestation, go ‘I am’ and it’s all gone! As you understand and become familiar with all this, the ‘I am’ gets friendly with you and then it helps you get stabilized in itself.
