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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The first step is to go and dwell in the I am. From there you go beyond consciousness and no-consciousness to infinite Absolute which is the permanent state.

After understanding the I am, the first step is to dwell in it. You have to dwell in the I am by putting the body idea completely away. See the I am in its wordless purity and abide there for a sufficiently long time. When you do so, a moment would come when you go beyond consciousness or I am and no-consciousness or I am not. When this happens you would merge in your true nature, the Absolute, which is a permanent state.
