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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
The Absolute or the Parabrahman is prior to the I am, its the unborn state, so how can it have the knowledge I am?

Your true natural, Absolute or Parabrahman state is before the knowledge I am appeared. It is the state that ever prevails and knows no birth or death. Whatever is known or seen only appears to have occurred on it using the knowledge I am as a basis for propagation, which is an all an illusion. But once the illusion is gone how can it have the knowledge I am? It doesnt even need this knowledge as it is the unborn state. You must have a firm conviction and come to the conclusion that you are unborn.
