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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
A ‘Jnani’ is one who has come to a conclusion about the raw material ‘I am’ and stands apart from it.

Who is a ‘Jnani’ (a man of wisdom)? He is a ‘Jnani’ who has not only understood and developed a firm conviction about the knowledge ‘I am’, but has also transcended it. He (the ‘Jnani’) could achieve this through the ‘Sadhana’ (practice) of meditating on the ‘I am’ for a reasonable amount of time and in the process went beyond and stood apart from it. Having done so, he is out of the cycles of birth and death.
