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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
In the infinite state, the I am state is temporary; dont give up your true standpoint, otherwise you will be fooled.

The Absolute, infinite state ever prevails, on it the appearance of the I am state is temporary and would go one day but the infinite would always be there as it is and as it has been. On the appearance of the I am, in its nascent state, it is quite free, without name or form. Soon the process of conditioning takes over and you get fooled into believing the I am to be the body-mind, and lose your stand point. You have to revert and come to that wordless state of the I am, abide in it in order to realize its temporary and false nature. Then you have regained your standpoint as the Absolute infinite which is as it is and would be forever.
