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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Prior to birth where was the I am? Dont contaminate the I am with the body idea, I as the Absolute am not the I am.

What were you before you were born? Where was the I am? You were Nothing and there was no I am. On this Nothingness of yours has the I am appeared and it has got contaminated with the body idea. Now, through discrimination you need to undertake a decontamination procedure, free the I am of the body idea, abide in it and transcend it, because you as the Absolute are not the I am.
