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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
The primary concept ‘I am’ is dishonest, a cheat, it has deceived you, into believing what is not, sharply focus on the ‘I am’ and it’ll disappear.

The teaching says that first you must set an inquiry into the nature of this knowledge ‘I am’, how it appeared on you and what it lead to thereof. In the process of this inquiry you land up with the conclusion that this ‘I am’ is false and has deceived you into believing something that’s not true. You may theoretically agree with this conclusion but in order to actually understand it you have to keep a sharp focus on the ‘I am’, that too for a prolonged period. You have to do this repeatedly; in fact this is the ‘Sadhana’ (practice). What would be the outcome of all this? A moment would come when the ‘I am’ would disappear and you would end up in your true natural state.
