Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
This knowledge ‘I am’ has spontaneously ‘appeared’ on your Absolute state, therefore it is an illusion

You were ‘not there’ and spontaneously ‘you are’, the ‘I am’ has ‘appeared’ on your Absolute state. Was there any volition on your part in it? Not at all, it’s like the dream which only ‘appears’ non-volitionally when you fall asleep. The dream ‘appears’ to be true as long it lasts and like the dream, the ‘I am’ too is an illusion only true as long it lasts. With the disappearance of ‘I am’ you are in your Absolute state.
