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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
The ‘I am’ is an advertisement of the Absolute, an illusion, temporary, the one who knows this knows the eternal principle.

The ‘I am’, in its purest and wordless form is a hoarding or advertisement of the Absolute or the ‘Parabrahman’. It is has a moment of appearance and a moment of disappearance, it is always temporary and like a dream, it’s an illusion. In order to understand this nature of the ‘I am’ one has to revert and go back to the moment when it first appeared spontaneously. If not that, try to observe the ‘I am’ as it appears the moment you wake up after deep sleep.
