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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
Together with the body and the indwelling principle I am everything is. Prior to that what was there?

The indwelling principle I am is absolutely essential for everything to surface. The body maybe there but unless the I am principle arises nothing can be known. Once you have understood the importance of the knowledge I am, all your efforts should be directed towards investigating it. The very first question you must ask is that: how did this I am came to be? Prior to that what was there?
