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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The conviction that the ‘I am’ and the world never existed can happen only to ‘Parabrahman’ (The Absolute).

As you abide in the ‘I am’ after fully understanding it or you earnestly do the ‘Sadhana’ (practice) as prescribed by the Guru, a moment would come when you would transcend the ‘I am’. On this happening the ‘I am’ would disappear and so would the world, you would be in the Absolute or ‘Parabrahman’ state. In this state only you would have the conviction that the ‘I am’ and the world never existed. The Guru is in that state, he has gone beyond the ‘I am’ and this world, he is only using the ‘I am’ or his ‘being’ to communicate with anybody who comes to him.
