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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
That soundless sound, the humming ‘I am’ is a reminder that you are God. To understand and realize it, meditate on it.

The sound ‘So Hum’, observed while inhaling and exhaling during the breathing process is extremely subtle. The humming of the ‘I am’ is even subtler than this and has been called the ‘soundless sound’, it is a constant reminder that you are God. Meditation on that soundless or wordless ‘I am’ is recommended as a means to understand and realize it. Theoretical or verbal understanding of the ‘I am’ is not enough, you have to actually realize it and become one with it, and for that meditation is essential.
