Nisargadatta Gita - Message of Nisargadatta Maharaj
with commentary by 'Pradeep Apte'
The indwelling principle ‘I am’ is common to all and has no attributes; it is the principle of the whole functioning.
The knowledge ‘I am’ that has dawned on you is indeed the indwelling principle through which you function. Just ponder; can anything be if ‘you’ are not there? Your ‘being’ is of great importance for everything else to be. Prior to the arrival of this knowledge ‘I am’ did you know anything? Or when during deep sleep when the ‘I am’ is held in abeyance do you know anything? This indwelling principle ‘I am’ does not belong to any particular individual but is common to all and has no attributes at all.
