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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Catch hold of the I am and all obstacles will evaporate, you will be beyond the realm of body-mind.

The Guru speaks from his own experience, he has gone to great lengths to make you understand the I am. The first thing that the Guru does to every seeker that comes to him, is to make him understand the I am. On the clarity of this understanding is based the entire foundation of the practice and progress. Unless you understand the true importance of the I am you will not pay heed to it or make attempts to catch hold of it. The I am is impersonal and without name and form, the moment you catch hold of it and become one with it, you too achieve the same status. On becoming one with the I am you beyond the realm of body-mind.
