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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
Understand that the knowledge I am has dawned on you and all are its manifestations, in this understanding you realize you are not the I am.

Has this knowledge I am come willingly to you? Was it volitional? In retrospect it doesnt appear to be so. There was that moment and you knew that you are and thenceforth the feeling I am went on getting strengthened. I am so and so got embedded into you and the rest of the activities of your life followed. From this is not conclusive that the I am has created your world and not the other way around. This I am has dawned on you and you stand apart from it just as a witness with no participation in any of its activities whatsoever.
