Nisargadatta Gita - Message of Nisargadatta Maharaj
with commentary by 'Pradeep Apte'
You are beyond desire, which itself depends on the ‘I am’. Do not suppress desires, just don’t identify with them and they will disappear.
Almost every third seeker asks as to what has to be done about desire? It is such a big hurdle confronted by everyone, that it seems almost impossible to overcome. To them, the Guru says that you are beyond desire; the desire is of the ‘I am’ and dependant on it. So rather than suppressing a desire it would be more useful to not identify with it, then it would disappear. Understanding and meditating on the ‘I am’ without words is all the more conducive to the process.
