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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
Repetition of a ‘mantra’ takes one to the pure ‘I am’, where all knowledge is surrendered, you merge with the Absolute beyond all name and form.

‘Japa’ or the repetition of a mantra like ‘So Hum’ (I am That) or ‘Aham Brahmasmi’ (I am Brahman) for a long time takes you to the state of the pure ‘I am’. On residing in the ‘I am’, a moment comes when this first and last piece of knowledge ‘I am’ is also surrendered. Once the ‘I am’ disappears, you merge or enter your original natural state which is the Absolute, beyond all name and form.
