Nisargadatta Gita - Message of Nisargadatta Maharaj
with commentary by 'Pradeep Apte'
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 doesn’t 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.
