Nisargadatta Gita - Message of Nisargadatta Maharaj
with commentary by 'Pradeep Apte'

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The experience that ‘I am’ or you exist is ‘Turiya’. One who knows ‘Turiya’ is ‘Turiyatita’ (beyond the fourth state), which is my state.

The ‘Turiya’ is very fundamental to your being and usually you are not aware of that state due your cycling through the other three states which you are well aware of. The ‘Turiya’ is the ‘I am’ in its pure wordless form and the one who understands and transcends it is called ‘Turiyatita’ (the one beyond the fourth state), which is the state of the Guru.
