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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Reality prevails prior to the knowledge I am; you must stay put at the source of your creation, at the beginning of the knowledge I am.

Reality ever prevails; it knows no coming and going, birth and death, creation and destruction, these are attributes of the I am. On the attributeless Reality or the Absolute the I am has appeared and would go one day. Presently you have wandered away from the I am, come back to it again and again and try to abide there for some time. The I am is the very beginning; the source of everything and in its wordless state is in the closest proximity to the Reality. By residing in the I am you stand a better chance of arriving to your natural state, then from anywhere else.
