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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
You are beyond desire, which itself depends on the I am. Do not suppress desires, just dont 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.
