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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
How were you prior to the message I am? In the absence of the message I am only my eternal Absolute state prevails.

The inquiry has to begin with the question as to what were you before you were born? Or how and what were you prior to the coming of the message I am? In the absence of the message I am or in the absence of the feeling that you are do you know anything? You cannot, as on the disappearance of the last concept I am you are totally devoid of content, there is no experience anymore, you are empty! This is your true eternal Absolute state that ever prevails.
