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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
The I am in body form can reach the highest state, if you accept it and dwell there, you escape birth and death.

Presently you are in this body endowed with the indwelling knowledge I am. Understand the knowledge I am and use it to meditate on itself. When the knowledge I am meditates on itself for a reasonable amount of time, finally, only the I am remains and nothing else. This is the highest state of the knowledge I am in body form (also called the Turiya or the fourth). On accepting and abiding in the I am there is no question of rebirth.
