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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The recitation of ‘So Hum’, indicating ‘I am’, must be for a very long time, it is prior to words.

Any ‘Sadhana’ (practice) has to be undertaken for a very long time, a lot would depend on your earnestness and intensity. Rarely, there have been seekers, who have realized their true identity in a short period. The ‘So Hum’ is prior to words and naturally available to you, its evolution has occurred in the process of self-inquiry as: ‘Deham Naham’ (I am not the body), ‘Ko Hum?’(Then, Who am I?), the wordless answer that came was ‘So Hum’( I am That).
