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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Inquire into the validity of the fundamental concept of your individuality the ‘I am’ and it will disappear, then you are Parabrahman, the Absolute.

If presently what you believe yourself to be is false, what is the means to be adopted in order to realize your true identity? Self-inquiry is the means that the Guru suggests, you have to inquire into the question ‘Who am I?’ As you do so you come to fundamental concept of ‘beingness’ or the ‘I am’ on which rests everything. You are now told to meditate on this ‘I am’, stay here, abide in it for a reasonable amount of time. As your ‘Sadhana’ (practice) matures a day will come when the ‘I am’ will disappear and then you are Absolute. Through negation you assert your true being, try to perceive the affirmation hidden the negation of ‘I am’.
