Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
Do nothing but stay in the knowledge ‘I am’ – the ‘moolmaya’ – the primary illusion, and then it will release its stranglehold on you and get lost.

Once you have understood the knowledge ‘I am’ you have to do nothing but just abide in it. The ‘I am’ is the primary illusion or concept and is also know as the ‘moolmaya’ (rootmaya). Presently you are in the firm grip of this Maya (illusion), come to the root of this Maya, which is the ‘I am’. On abiding in the ‘I am’ in fact you are now holding the root of the Maya or you are holding its neck! And what will happen now? The Maya realizes its own existence to be in danger and thus releases its stranglehold on you, runs away and gets lost.
