Nisargadatta Gita - Message of Nisargadatta Maharaj
with commentary by 'Pradeep Apte'
This knowingness ‘I am’ that came spontaneously and you felt gradually, is the ignorant-child-principle, the ‘Balkrishna’ state.
The Guru now calls the ‘I am’, that spontaneously appeared on you, the ignorant-child-principle or also the ‘Balkrishna’ state. This adds more to your understanding of the ‘I am’. Indeed when the knowledge ‘I am’ dawned on you it was a state complete ignorance. You did not know what this sense of ‘being’ was and what to make of it? You knew only two states, those of ‘I am’ and ‘I am not’ which alternated on their own.
