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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The ‘I am’ is without ego, you can become its watcher only by getting established in it.

When you are established in the ‘Turiya’ or the fourth state, there is nothing else except the ‘I am’. It is the ‘I am’ in its utmost purity with no add-ons at all, as a result there is no ego either. Ego comes with the verbal ‘I am’, when you say ‘I am so and so living in this world’. With all this gone and there is nothing but the ‘I am’ only, without words, the ego disappears. By getting established in the ‘Turiya’ or the fourth state you become its watcher and stand apart from it.
