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


<< previous quote     next quote >>
There is nobody else but ‘me’ or ‘I am’, this non-dual devotion (‘advaita-bhakti’) is the highest; to vanish and be lost in the vast unknown.

You have to meditate on the knowledge ‘I am’ till you develop a strong conviction that there is nobody else but ‘me’ or ‘I am’ only and nothing else. To get completely infused with the knowledge ‘I am’ is to enter the ‘Turiya’ or the fourth state and this is non-dual devotion (‘advaita-bhakti’) at its peak or highest. You should be totally immersed in the worship of ‘I am’ to the extent that you become the ‘I am’. And, what would happen on doing this intense non-dual devotion? You will vanish and be lost in the vast unknown and become the Absolute.
