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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
When the ‘I am’ becomes pure, that is without ‘I am this’ or ‘I am that’, you become ‘Ishwara’ (God).

You have to come back to the ‘I am’ when it had first appeared on you and the brief period that followed afterwards when the ‘I am’ was uncontaminated. During that period there were no add-ons on the ‘I am’ as ‘this’ or ‘that’, a phase when it was pure. You have gone through that period in your life and there is no reason as to why you cannot relive it. It is all a question of understanding the ‘I am’, applying yourself and abiding in it. If you do so you become ‘Ishwara’ (God) and stand a chance of transcending it and becoming ‘Parameshwar’( the ultimate God or the Absolute).
