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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
You are in the ‘I am’ without any effort, so be there. Don’t try to interpret the ‘I am’.

Meditation, understanding and realization are all complementary processes and work in an overall way. You are always in the ‘I am’, do you require any effort to know that ‘you are’? So just be in it. Words cannot be used to describe the wordless; they can at the most be pointers. Any attempts on your part to interpret the ‘I am’ is beating the very purpose of understanding and realizing it. In fact, it is the other way around, when all interpretations come to an end, only then you are in the ‘I am’ without words. Ultimately, in the end, even this ‘Nisargadatta Gita’ will have to be kept aside and forgotten, it is only then that your ‘Sadhana’ (practice) would begin.
