Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
In order to stabilize in the ‘I am’ or ‘Turiya’ you must understand this birth-principle.

The Guru once stresses the importance of understanding the ‘Turiya’ or the ‘I am’ in order to get stabilized in it. For this you would have to repeatedly revert and go back to that moment when the ‘I am’ first appeared on you. The ‘Turiya’ that lay dormant from the day of your conception suddenly or spontaneously propped up and you came to know that ‘you are’. This wordless state of ‘Turiya’ prevailed for some time wherein you only knew that ‘I am’ and ‘I am not’. Gradually as a process of your conditioning, the ‘I am’ soon identified itself with the body and you became an individual ‘so and so’ living in the world. The three states of waking, dreaming and deep sleep took over and you forgot the background ‘Turiya’.
