Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
Recognize the Atman by understanding the knowledge ‘I am’, the Atma-jnana, which is all pervading, limitless and infinite.

A very important statement was made earlier where the knowledge ‘I am’ was said to be ‘Brahman’ and the ‘Parabrahman’ lies beyond it. Another important statement is made here where the ‘Atman’ or the Self is to be understood by understanding the ‘I am’. The ‘I am’ is the ‘Atman’, the ‘Atman’ with qualities or identifying itself with the body is the ‘Jivatman’ (Jiva=living being). The ‘Atman’ without qualities is the ‘Nirmalatman’ (Nirmal=pure). The ‘Atman’ transcendent to both is the ‘Paramatman’ (The ultimate transcendent Self). As you abide in the ‘I am’ you would know the ‘Atman’ or Self in all its aspects, and this is Atma-jnana or Self-knowledge. It is the knowledge of your True being as the Absolute which is all pervading, limitless and infinite.
