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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
In deep meditation, infused only with the knowledge ‘I am’, it would be intuitively revealed to you as to how this ‘I amness’ came to be.

The Guru once again highlights the importance of meditation for the ‘Sadhak’ (aspirant) and that too, not something to be done casually but in a very deep way. What is meant by deep? Deep means that you know nothing but the sense ‘I am’ only for a prolonged uninterrupted period of time. Success may or may not come early, but come it would if you are completely infused with the knowledge ‘I am’ with an enormous sincerity and earnestness. And what would be revealed to you? The ‘I amness’ itself will tell its story and you would come to know how it came to be. Or paradoxically speaking, how the ‘I am’ never came to be or never was in the first place! It is always the Absolute that was, is, and will be for ever, the ‘I am’ was only an illusion that appeared on it.
