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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
In the absence of I am nothing is required, the I am will go with the body, what remains is the Absolute.

Before the I am had appeared did you have any requirements or did you have any demands? None whatsoever, all demands began with the arrival of the I am and what is this I am? It is nothing but the essence of the five elements that make up the body. The I am depends on the body and is as transient as the body and will go along with it so none of them are true. What remains then? It is only the Absolute.
