Nisargadatta Gita - Message of Nisargadatta Maharaj
with commentary by 'Pradeep Apte'
The feeling ‘I am’ is itself an illusion, therefore whatever is seen through this illusion cannot be real.
The essence of the five elements and three qualities that make up the body-mind is the knowledge ‘I am’. The body-mind as we know is impermanent and destructible; the ‘I am’ depends on it for expression. Thus the ‘I am’ being destructible and dependant cannot be the reality which is indestructible and independent. The feeling ‘I am’ is thus unreal and an illusion; whatever we see or know is through the ‘I am’, thus it’s all an illusion and unreal.
