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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
This memory ‘I am’ is neither true nor false, it is without these two attributes. That memory of ‘beingness’ only appears to exist.

What is it by which continuity is maintained in your life? It is the memory ‘I am’ or ‘beingness’, that too, as ‘I am so and so living in this world’ and ‘being so and so I have these duties to perform’ Just see the trick that has been by the ‘I am’ and it is neither nor false but without these attributes. This can be said about the ‘I am’ in context of it being like a dream, in which, the fact of its occurrence cannot be denied but its contents are false! The ‘I am’ is an appearance on your true being and will always only appear to exist it can never enter the realm of reality.
