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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The ‘I am’ is only a little distance away from the True state, hence it is unreal, for whatever is away from the True state or the Reality is unreal.

The ‘I am’ can be taken to be as the last camp as you scale the height of Reality. Once you are stabilized in the ‘I am’ or the ‘Turiya’ state, your job is done. This state though very close to the Reality or the Absolute, still has to be classified as unreal. The ‘I am’ cannot remain as it is, it has to disappear or dissolve and merge into the Absolute or the ‘Parabrahman’, only then would it qualify as the Reality.
