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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
When the body dies the I am goes into oblivion, only the Absolute remains, stay put there, nothing happens to you the Absolute.

The I am is the essence of the five elements and three qualities that form the body-mind. When the body falls off, the I am disappears and only the Absolute remains. As you stay put in the I am, a time would come when the I am would disappear and you would remain as the Absolute. You are not the body-mind so you know no death but only the disappearance of I am. In any case the body would drop and the I am disappear without asking you, so realize your relevance, before you irrelevantly depart.
