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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
To abide in the knowledge I am is ones true religion, give the highest honor due to it, doing so you will not undergo suffering or death.

Conventional religion comes after the I am, before belonging to any religion you have to be, it is only after you are that you are anything else. So the true religion that you are endowed with is the knowledge I am and this is common to all. So to abide in the I am is your true religion and by doing so you are giving it the highest honor that is due to it. The benefits that you would get by this abidance in the I am is tremendous you will not undergo suffering or death, what more do you want?
