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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
The knowledge I am means consciousness, God, Guru, Ishwara, but you the Absolute are none of these.

The knowledge I am is but one but many names have been attributed to it like consciousness, God or Ishwara and Guru. Why so many names? Because the I am is nameless and all these names have come by as it (the knowledge I am) intuitively revealed itself to different seekers who had deeply meditated on the I am. Some saw it as God, some saw it as Brahman, some saw it as Guru and so forth. The ultimate revelation is of course that you stand apart from all these and are the Absolute, the formless, the eternal and totally free all attributes.
