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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
In the absence of the basic concept I am, there is no thought, no awareness, and no consciousness of ones existence.

Understanding the importance of the basic concept I am comes by constantly pondering on it. The more you dwell on it, the more you realize that yes, this is it. On this I am rests everything, all the thoughts that prevail, all the actions that you perform, the very awareness of your being, your existence; the I am gone all these go, like in the state of deep sleep or that period before the I am arose.
