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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Sit for meditation by identifying with the I am, dwell only on the I am- not merely the words I am.

Having understood the knowledge I am, dwell or abide in the I am only, without words. In order to do this you would have to revert and go back to that period that followed after the arising of I am or when you just came know that you are. At that time you had no knowledge of words or language and lived in a non-verbal state; that state has to be caught and abided in. That period was devoid of any concepts which came later as a part of your conditioning.
